Best Valentine's Day beauty products
When Valentine's Day rolls around, it can be easy to get caught up in thinking about your significant other and other loved ones in your life. While that's important, too, you should also make sure that you're treating yourself to a little love. Check out these dazzling beauty products to indulge in this Valentine's Day season:
1. Winky Lux Confetti PH Lip Balm
Ever seen the lipsticks that have flowers inside the tube? That's one of Winky Lux's creations. They're known for their cute and creative lipsticks, and Confetti Balm is no exception. With activated ingredients, this color-enhancing balm is a vegan lip stain that applies clear, then reacts with lips' natural pH levels, leaving lips looking perfectly pink with some shimmer.
2. LaserAway Beauty Jetsetter Hydroserum Facial Mask
This face mask provides hydrated, radiant, and glowing skin on the go and is infused with nutrient-rich, soothing plant extracts and powerful antioxidants that refresh and rejuvenate skin. Give yourself some TLC this Valentine's Day!
3. Kaja Stamp Blendable Blush
This Valentine's Day-themed blush features a heart-shaped sponge applicator that blends out to a sheer flush of color. If you want a bolder color, you can also layer the blush for a more dramatic look.
4. NYC Professional Makeup Star & Heart Shaped Glitter
This vegan star and heart shaped glitter sparkles in two reflective hues, perfect for completing your Valentine's Day look. Use Glitter Primer first to minimize fallout, and then apply the glitter with your fingers.
5. Juvia's Place The Berries Eyeshadow Palette
This iconic pink eyeshadow palette features mauves, deep pinks, and berry hues to complement your Valentine's Day date night.
6. Glossier Monochromatics
This refillable eyeshadow trio features three finishes to help you tailor your look — matte, satin, and metallic. The eyeshadows can be used alone or together for monochromatic dimension. What's more, this vegan formula doesn't contact talc, fragrance, or natural mica.
7. Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel
This shower gel smells just like Valentine's Day and features rose petals, vanilla, and lemon, which are ingredients known for their aphrodisiac effects. If you love the smell of a field of Turkish roses smashed into a sugary, cheerful jam, then you'll love this shower gel.
8. Stila Stay All Day Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner
This eyeliner is perfect for any Valentine's Day look you're trying to nail. Available in an array of matte and shimmer formulas, the Stay All Day eyeliner is formulated with moisturizing ingredients that ensure color glides on smooth with no tugging or pulling.
9. Sephora Sparkly Clean Makeup Set
This makeup set from Sephora features lip gloss, mascara, blush, and more — all stables you need to complete a date night look. Plus, all of these products are long-wearing and cruelty-free.
10. Urban Decay All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
This lightweight setting and finishing spray keeps makeup smudge-proof and transfer-resistant for up to 16 hours, so you don't have to worry about it on your Valentine's Day date. It's also an Allure 2020 Best of Beauty Award Winner and is formulated with vegan ingredients.
Flawless makeup starts with good skincare
If you want to look and feel your best on Valentine's Day (and have your foundation and concealer glide on your skin smoothly), it's essential that you follow a solid skincare routine to maximize your skin fitness. This includes washing your face with a gentle cleanser, exfoliating your skin a few times a week to remove dead skin cells, applying an antioxidant-rich vitamin C serum during the day, using SPF no matter the weather, and never forgetting to put on a repair serum at night along with a high-quality eye cream.
