Whether you are spending V-day with your bae, having a Galantine’s Day, or having a self-love day we have a few must-have beauty and self-care products to look and feel your best.Chelley Denae’ & Monique Soto
When one looks good, they feel good, and on this day, we want to make sure we feel our best. Many times leave us, girls, wondering if our makeup looks will be glam, romantic or sultry? If you are still deciding, here are some collections you have got to get your hands on.
Ladies, everyone needs a highly pigmented lip color that will not only moisturizes your lips but accentuates them. (One) I recommend LimeLife by Alcone’s Enduring Lip Colors, especially those who enjoy a good matte lipstick. LimeLife provides a variety of shades that are easy to blend, last with little to no transfer, and don’t dry out your lips. However, it is key to exfoliate your lips to have the best lipstick application and to remove any dry skin. This month, LimeLife is allowing you to build your lip bundle (2 for $32), even adding lip care products like a lip scrub and lip balm. Leave your lips smooth and sexy for a kissable impression at the end of the night.
Now, experiment with soft glam or sultry makeup looks using the new Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection. With rose inspired hues and powerhouse pigments, this features mother’s supreme garden using the Mothership VIII: Devine Rose II. Giving you ten tantalizing shades of shimmering pinks, megawatt metallics, and major mattes, all metamorphosing in a gorgeous garden of eye looks.
Next up, giving you a romantic feel is the Natasha Denona Valentine’s Day inspired collection. This collection provides a Mini Love Story Palette with a Love Cheek Duo cream blush and color-shifting duo-chrome shades transition from a pink to golden champagne color. Wine and dine me, please!
Love Me or Love Me Not, here is a collection for those who find their ways to enjoy Valentine’s day or said Galantine’s Day. This new Colour Pop collection allows one to flex on their ex using their three new five pan eyeshadow palettes, a Pink Heart QT Face Stamp, Mini Face, and Body Highlighter with new pressed powder blushes. Not only does this Colour Pop collection help you create eye-catching makeup looks but offers body and skincare products with the Solbody Pink Truffle Mini Shimmering Dry Oil and Fouthray Beauty All Nighter Mini Skincare Kit.
Now, to get creative with your hair, play around with statement hair accessories such as headbands, scrunchies, hair clips, and clamps. Recently, I have been loving the hair accessories from Kitsch and Pretty Little Thing. Something as simple as adding an accessory to your hair can really elevate your look.
Set the Mood
Whatever the vibe is set the mood with body and room fragrances.
Me, myself personally have been stalking the FORVR Mood page to see when queen beauty influencer Jackie Aina was dropping the VDay collection. I can’t wait the get my hands on it. The collections weren’t only made to set the mood for a little pillow talk with your boo but the scents are also great for gifting friends with notes of champagne, citruses, and chocolate. The packaging is a whole mewd… you deserve luxury!
This is for when you want to smell tasty. Wink, wink. Prada Candy giving you the aroma an explosive sugar high of fruits, powdery vanilla, and a whisper of caramel. That sounds so yummy.
KKW Metallic Hearts in three captivating scents in heart-shaped bottles just in time for valentine’s day with luxurious floral aromas that include beautiful notes of orange blossom, pink peppercorn, and velvet moss.
Everyone has their nail style, you can either keep it classic with white and neutral shades or spice it up with a romantic deep red mani or flirty soft pink press-on nails. Check out nail polishes from O.P.I and Nails. INC London, or press on nails from Kiss Nails and The Nailest Co.
Last but most important is protection, of course I mean by using masks. During this time of year, we still need to protect ourselves from Covid-19 in order to prevent any more cases. Especially if you are making plans for Valentine’s Day, whether it be meeting up with a person or gathered around multiple people, you can still keep it classy using a silk mask.
