Valentine’s Day is a mere four days away, and I’m hardly prepared…
So if you’re like me with no time these days, I sympathize for you… However, that doesn’t mean let yourself go completely. Feminine and flawless in less than an hour is more than possible. Let’s quickly run through my top steps for having the perfect date night on Valentine’s Day.
#1 Light some candles
Tea light candles really know how to set the mood, so if it’s been a long day of work, keep the lights down and light a few candles while getting ready.
#2 Jump in for a quick bath
(And if you’re really pressed for time, save it for after the date.) These handmade bath bombs from LUSH take bathing to a completely different level. Aside from being so much fun to use, the beautiful scents really stimulate your senses and relax you. The two I really enjoyed are the Rose Bombshell and Over and Over. My skin is dry all over but these oil-infused goodies help minimize that. Highly recommended before or after date night!
#3 Multi-purpose makeup on the go
I’ve given ILIA BEAUTY high regards before and it’s no different today. The Multi-Sticks are genius – they’re versatile tints that perform wonders on both lips and cheeks. They’re quite pigmented yet blend out into sheer beauty. The shade “At Last” is a dusty rose that every guy will love on you – undetectable but fresh and romantic. The Silken Shadow Sticks are also a pleasant to use. They make the perfect wash of color and are also super portable. There’s just so many wonderful things to say about ILIA… Here’s a quick tutorial I threw together to get you started…
#4 Rose-infused skincare
What better way to end Valentine’s Day than rose-infused skincare products? The Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water feels like a creamy water that removes makeup while keeping the skin nice and hydrated. It feels super luxurious and the light rose scent is just really lovely. I don’t feel like I need a ton of product to get the job done, though I also don’t wear loads of makeup… I recommend following up with the Micellar Foam Cleanser With Rose Petals also from Nuxe. It’s really calming on the skin and works really nicely even for the most sensitive skin types despite the foam. Lastly, the Rose Toner from Neal’s Yard Remedies’ is a MUST TRY! It balances and refreshes both normal and sensitive skins. Considering this is an all-organic product, I was surprised at how wonderfully it removed the grime and left me feeling refreshed and rehydrated.
