If you’re wondering how you can kick it up a notch with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, here are a couple of beauty hints that came my way this week.
Prep Your Lips with Hydrating Balm
Nourish and gloss your lips for the big event with a soothing balm like Rodial’s glam balm LIP. This rose-scented balm is a favorite of celebrities like Lea Michelle, who carried glam balm LIP at the SAG Awards to make sure she could top up her lips throughout the night. In Canada, you can find glam balm LIP at Murale and the Bay.
Layer Seductive Scent
Valentine’s Day is a perfect night to layer your fragrance. LOVE fragrance from Skinn Cosmetics by Dimitri James features night blooming flowers, exotic tropicals, and rare spices. Start with LOVE bath and shower gel, then follow with LOVE body butter. Finish with LOVE roll on perfume all over your body’s pulse points.
Skinn Cosmetics is doing a special giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a “Surprise” bag with a bundle of Skinn favorites valued at $200! Enter to win at www.skinn.com/behind-the-brush-blog/. The giveaway winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day.
Be Brave with Bold, Red Lips
Nothing says Valentine’s Day makeup like bold, red lips. I’m loving Clinique’s new collection of Almost Lipstick shades with a solid range of red/berry shades to choose from. My fave so far is Luscious Honey (which says it all).
TIP: To keep red lipstick from bleeding, line your lips with a similar or slightly darker shade of lip liner.
Intensify Your Eye Color Naturally
The eyes are the window to the soul, so why not add some drama to your eyes for Valentine’s Day. Make your eye color stand out with Eye Intensifier Pencil from Sue Devitt (celeb fans include: Sarah Jessica Parker, Keira Knightley and Cameron Diaz). This resistant eyeliner pencil features a velvety formulation that glides on extra smooth, and comes in rich shades like the blue Victoria Falls or the chocolate brown Gold Reef.
