Valentine’s Day Beauty Guide

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love it or hate it, V-day is a great excuse to get your flirt on, enhance that romantic glow, and embrace the season’s girliest shades. Here are my picks for the best of Valentine’s Day beauty…

Violent Lips Queen of Hearts Set

Violent Lips carries tattoos for every occasion! I wear these all the time and I absolutely love them. They are totally fun and unique. Everyone will wonder how you did it, too! The Queen of Hearts set contains two different prints perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish. This perfectly pink cheek color is especially perfect if you’re running right from the office to your dinner date. The awesome stay-put formula keeps your rosy glow going for 12 hours!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl

This is perfect for creating a glossy, sexy pout. It’s a champagne grape-infused lip vinyl with a shimmery wash of lust-worthy, sheer-coverage color. This lightly pigmented, plumping formula is infused with antioxidants, essential oils, and a hint of effervescence for a perfect pout with the highest shine.

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

The Naked palettes reached cult status almost instantly. The latest in Urban Decay’s collection is the Naked3 which features neutrals that are on the rosier side – perfect for creating soft, romantic looks.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick

Seriously, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic red lip on Valentine’s Day. Rihanna’s answer to the Viva Glam lippies is the perfect shade, a bold blue-red, for the job. And like all of the Vivas before it, every cent of its selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Too Faced Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder

This has V-Day written all over it! Enhance that romantic glow with these multicolored heart pearls. This stuff sets makeup and provides just a hint of shimmer. Inspired by nature’s most flattering pink and golden-dusk colors, this face powder also illuminates and brightens for a romantic lit-from-within finish.

God, I love me some Lancome. This collection of radiant, high-potency colors, with up to six hours of wear, is feather-light and offers serious comfort. I love Rosy Rouge, a petal pink. (And I think everything sounds more romantic with a French accent.)

Wear This/Drink That: Watermelon

I realize National Watermelon Day may not be circled on everyone’s calendar… but I’ll make any excuse for a watermelon beauty and booze pairing. Cheers! ;)

Tarte Watermelon1Wear This: Tarte True Love Cheek Stain in Sheer Watermelon

This beautiful water based gel tint provides a natural flush with natural ingredients, too! It is formulated without parabens, sulfates or phthalates. The stain utilizes a proprietary blend of superfruits (goji, açaí, maracuja, acerola, and pomegranate) to deliver maximum benefits to the skin while creating a soft pink glow. It’s refreshing and healthy, just like a juicy watermelon!

 

Drink That: Salty Watermelon Margarita

Traditionally, Margaritas are crafted with Tequila, but when UV Vodka reached out to me with this unique spin on the classic featuring summer’s fav fruit, I did not complain! So good.

1 part UV Salty Watermelon

1 part triple sec

1 splash of lime juice

Blend with ice and serve.

 

Happy National Watermelon Day!
