YOUR VALENTINES DAY ESSENTIALS
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s time to start prepping. Get ready using products from Rituals, John Frieda, PUR, Lauren B Beauty and Le Couvent de Minimes, to show off your kissable lips, your pink accents and your sex appeal. Whether you’re going on a date or out with friends, follow these steps to help you feel and look your best all night long.
Start the night off right by sinking back and relaxing into silky soft bubbles. Rituals Energy Bubbles ($19, Rituals.com) allows you to soak in luxurious bath foam while leaving your skin feeling rich and silk soft.
Use John Frieda Luxurious Volume Dry Shampoo ($6.99, food, mass, drugstores nationwide) and not only will your hair feel clean, healthy and light, it will also get an uplifting boost and keep that fresh feeling all night long. Want to really make sure your hair doesn’t fall? Add in the Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray ($9.99, food, mass, drugstores nationwide) for the ultimate way to lock your hair in place and keep those fine strands enduringly full and bouncy. Your hair will be feeling alive with texture and movement from beginning to end.
3) PUCKER UP
Time to add that perfect gloss, shine or color to your lips to make a statement. PUR Chrome Glaze High Shine Lip Gloss ($18, purcosmetics.com) gives your lips vivid color and intense shine without fading throughout the night. Looking for that soft look? Try shades DIY or Heartbreaker. Want to go bolder? Try Rebel or Smarty Pants.
4) NAIL IT
Walk out of the house with a gel-like manicure that gives off a mirror-like finish right from home. Lauren B ($18, laurenbbeauty.com) nail couture is a healthy alternative to gel and will dry quickly to make it easy for you while getting ready. Show your nails some love with these suggested pink and red romantic colors: Rodeo Drive, City of Angels and Laurel Canyon Lover.
5) SPRITZ AND SPRAY
Lastly, don’t walk out of the house without spraying yourself with Le Couvent de Minimes- Botanical Cologne of Love ($38, Ulta.com). The floral-fruity blend of sweet orange blossom and citrus fruits gives off a radiant smell, as well as soothes, heals and softens the skin.
