I hope everybody had a lovely Valentine's Day!! And for those who maybe did not, do not dwell on it. Just because you may not have had a "special someone" in particular, or maybe you just had a breakup, does not mean you should let a day get you down. Anyways, here are my little tricks and treats that made me feel top of my game on V-Day:
Eyeshadow: Too-Faced Chocolate Bon Bons. Sephora/ Ulta
What better eye makeup to wear on V-Day than one that smells like chocolate? And not only are these the perfect colors for autumn/ winter, but they are pretty much goof-proof. Even Black Currant and Totally Fetch can find a place into an everyday look.
Michael Kors "Sexy Amber" Perfume. Sephora.
I sampled this around Thanksgiving, and I had to have it. I have not worn anything else since. If you want instant complements every time you leave your house, buy this. I had a group of men literally chase me on the sidewalk last weekend to ask me what I was wearing. It is dressy, but also light enough that it can be worn every day. Be cautioned though, it is a hefty price. Worth it though. It also comes in a roller ball version if you prefer cheaper, more portable options.
Bath & Body Works 'Lavender and Sandalwood" cream and fine mist. B&BW.
If you are the kind that prefers to layer their scents and likes the convenience of body spray, this is a good one to try. It smells expensive: you would never know it was only $14. Also, it is made with essential oils instead of all that artificial stuff, so the cream really absorbs into skin. Get it now before it's discontinued!
Kylie Lip Kit in "Koko K" kyliecosmetics.com
Lastly, what is a perfect date without a perfect pucker? Most ladies would probably opt for a red on Valentine's Day, but red never was my thing, so I went with soft pink. I tried one of Kylie's lip kits and never went back. The one I feel is perfect for a date (or anytime, really) is the Koko K shade. It is my favorite, plus if this would be your first Kylie Kit, this one is a good starter because it can work for many skin tones and many occasions. Did I mention it smells like strawberries?
