With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there are Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration posts and beauty tutorials on almost every blog. And I love it! But this year, I decided to do something a little different. Since I’m keeping it low-key, I’m focusing on the beauty prep. Here’s what I’ll be doing to prepare for a wonderful day full of love.
For Soft Lips: Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins
If there’s one beauty step that is the most important for Valentine’s Day, it’s making sure you have soft lips. And Vaseline’s Lip Therapy tins are by far the best way to do that! I’ve been using regular vaseline on my lips for years; I put it on every night before bed and throughout the day when I’m at home, but on the go, I have nothing. Until now! These little tins have been a lifesaver – especially with this cold weather! I totally love the pink one too. It’s so perfect for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think? Get your own at Target and Target.com. Good luck not buying the whole store though!
For Pretty Nails: Dolce & Gabbana Bonbon
A couple years ago, I made a New Year’s Resolution to always keep my nails painted. Of course, I let them breathe for a day or two in between polishes, but it’s something I always try to keep up it. It just makes you look put together and clean. I just got this polish in the mail a few days ago and I can’t wait to wear it for the weekend!
For Silky Hair: Biosilk
No matter how you style your hair, you always want it healthy looking and shiny. Biosilk is my favorite product to use on my damp hair. I only use the tiniest little bit or else it causes oil, but it totally does the trick. You can even touch it up and add a drop to dry hair if you feel you need it!
For Fresh Breath: Altoids
I mean, do I even need to say anything about this one?
For a Nice Scent: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Dove Dry Spray
I love both of these products so much. I don’t wear perfume every day; I use a simple scented spray for the usual day to day. Maybe because I never want to run out of this bottle, but also because I like it to be special and remind me of great memories. Valentine’s Day is obviously one of those occasions.
This Dove deodorant spray not only smells so good, but it works amazingly well! All you need is a little spritz and you’re good to go–for up to 48 hours! I never liked sprays before this one, but I have to say, no residue and no little arm pit balls is the way to go!
For Luminous Skin: Rose Water
My skin is super dehydrated–especially in the winter–so a good water spray is a must for me. I like this Rose Water one because it smells nice, it’s pink, and it works! It’s perfect for before makeup application or throughout the day as a nice refresher.
Oh and I almost forgot: tweeze those brows! My sister got me this pretty rose gold set for Christmas and I love using it!
I can’t wait for my simple little Valentine’s Day weekend at home. What are your plans?
