I’m pretty sure you know that Valentines day is tomorrow, what with all the cards, flowers and chocolates flooding stores! Whether you’re single or taken it should be a day where you are treated or treat yourself, I’ll be dressing up to the nines (as much as I can) and going for a fancy (too fancy) dinner so I thought i’d share what beauty bits i’ll be using on the occasion.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
This pencil is perfect for any occasion that involves a lot of drinking and eating, it takes a lot to smudge and the colour doesn’t fade easily. It’s also such a nice deep red and comfortable matte finish.
Nails Inc – King Edward Street
Going along with the red theme i’ll be adorning my nails with this colour, it’s possibly only the red nail polish I own but I feel it has to be done. It’s relatively long lasting and simply a nice colour.
Nude Tude – The Balm
This palette seems fitting, with its risqué packaging and aptly named shades, there are so many great shades to choose from and they’re all well pigmented. My favourite colours to use are ‘Snobby’ and ‘Stand-offish’, they seem to brighten up the eyes and are great for something simple.
The Righteous Butter – Soap & Glory
The last thing you’d want on valentines day is dry, itchy skin so I’ll be slathering this wonderful stuff on. I’ve loved this for years now, it really does leave you with soft skin and smells so good. It’s full of shea butter and aloe vera, which helps achieve the silky smoothness, good for this particular occasion in which i’ll be going bare legged!
Frat Boy – The Balm
Again the packaging for this is very fitting, it’s a lovely peachy blush, which will be good for a noticeably flushed, but not too flushed look! It’s great for building up as I find it’s not too pigmented, which I prefer in a blush.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you all have a good valentines day, whether it involves spending it wining and dining with your loved one or staying in treating yourself, take advantage of the valentines food deals going on! Let me know what beauty items are necessary for your valentines day 🙂
