Today it’s Valentines day and therefore I decided it might be fun to write an article related to that fact. Today I’m going to show you a few beauty products I think are perfect for Valentines day. If you’re interested in finding out which products I would wear on this beautiful love-filled day, make sure you continue reading!
First of all I think perfume is a must on Valentines. I would recommend wearing a scent you know your loved one loves, or a scent that is just very loveable in general. A scent I would go for is See By Chloe. I would go for this one because it is slightly different from the perfume I usually wear (which is either Chloe or Fleur de Parfum by Chloe).
I’d recommend going for something different than usual because this way you smell a little more special than normal. There is something different about you and that’s interesting. And it’s just fun to wear something difference once in a while. Your boyfriend might appreciate you smelling like something different for once.
Another thing I wouldn’t forget about on Valentines day is highlighter. Guys do love a bit of glow on those cheeks. However, most guys love rather natural makeup so don’t create a mirror of highlighter on your cheeks. A highlighter I’d use is this one by MAC. It’s the MSF in Blonde from the Naturally collection from a few years ago. Because it has some pink in it you could also use it more towards the apple of your cheeks to create an even glowier look.
Blush is another V-day essential in my opinion. I would go for this beautiful peachy blush by Becca called Damselfly because it is rather natural, but it does create this really pretty and healthy flush on your cheeks.
For eyes I would keep it simple. Like I said, most guys prefer a rather natural makeup look on their girlfriends. Even though I usually love going all out when it comes to eyeshadow, I would just use this eyeshadow stick by No7 on Valentines day. I’d sweep this all over my lid, blend the edges a little and then I’m good to go. It’s better than nothing, but it’s not too extreme.
One of the most important parts when it comes to the eyes are the lashes. Guys do love some luscious, sultry lashes. Therefore I’d apply a good coat of my favourite mascara to make my lashes look nice and intense. My current favourite mascara is the Lancome Grandiose mascara. This one is perfect for creating that luscious, sultry look.
Another essential for Valentines day are lip products. If you’re definitely going to lock lips with your loved one, wearing something on your lips might be quite pointless. But especially if you’re going on a date or if you just want to look a little extra appealing lip products are always a good idea.
I do think that you should choose your lip colour based on what either you feel most confident in or if you know what your S.O. likes, you can base it on that. I personally would either go for a lipgloss because my boyfriend does like the look of that (even though he will avoid kissing me if I’m wearing gloss) or a natural lipstick.
If you really want to keep things natural you could also go for a tinted lipbalm so your lips are soft and moisturised for the potential kiss, but they do have a nice wash of colour, or you could go for something like a lip crayon. It’s very soft and natural but it does add something to your overall look.
And that basically concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which beauty items you think are essential for Valentines day!
