Happy Valentine’s Day! While I admit this day isn’t my favorite, I am going to embrace my inner cupid in my most favorite way possible – makeup! If it is a night in or a fancy evening on the town, Valentine’s Day makeup calls for a little romance. May I suggest even if you are single, a swipe of a red lip will put a pep in your step. Today on Great Day Green Country, I am sharing five of my favorite items for this great day of love:
You better bet I’ll be rocking Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick. With sassy names like Bang and 69 it will put the “naughty” in your makeup. The creamy texture and rich pigment make it a breeze to wear and the staying power make it kiss-proof.
Looking for something a little more subtle? I’ve fallen hard for By Terry’s Terrybly Shine Lipgloss with the ultra-shiny finish and glow. It contains anti-aging ingredients to fill, regenerate and plump. Both the neutrals and those with a pop of color wear beautifully.
Speaking of glow, to get that lit within, check out NARS’ new NARSissist Cheek Palette with Devotee (limited edition, highlighting shade), Orgasm and Laguna (first reviewed here). This perfect cheek palette works on-the-go and has everything you’ll need for cheeks and highlights.
Are sultry eyes more of your type of nod to romance? Check out Eyeko’s Alexa Chung Eye Do Mascara & Liquid Eyeliner Set. This limited edition set contains a waterproof eyeliner and conditioning mascara designed by Alexa Chung in honor of her signature cat eye. I like using the liner to subtly accentuate above the lash and then the nourishing mascara for killer lashes.
Nothing is quite as sexy as a subtle scent. And while you don’t want to overpower your date, you do want some lasting power. The trick? Layer an accompanying lotion with your fragrance. I like using kate spade new york ‘live colorfully’ eau de parfum and body cream (initially reviewed here). On me, I get my beloved gourmand with the occasionally burst of feminine florals like lily.
New to the drugstore shelves, Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray will keep your skin moisturized, soft and hydrated. Bonus points for the warm tropical scent. The oil drys and absorbs quickly to assure you aren’t greasy but with touchably soft skin.
