Matching beauty picks, regardless of your Valentine’s Day plans

I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. I did make it a point to give my late mother a rose on this day. Other than that, I find the whole day corny. But it’s still a good reason to treat yourself, no matter what your relationship status is or what you’re doing on Feb. 14.

Besides, love can be expressed in various ways. It can be a date night with your significant other, a dedicated day at work, staying in to give yourself a break, or going out with your friends. I’ve matched up a few picks to complement every Valentine’s Day plan.


SHE Cosmetics Cushion Matte Lipstick

Date night
Going to grab a fancy dinner with your significant other? Catching a movie? This calls for a comfortable lipstick like the SHE Cosmetics Cushion Matte Lipstick. It features opaque pigment and skincare oils (peppermint, macadamia and camellia). Bulgarian rose lends a sweet scent to the formula. Pair your great lipstick with long and voluminous lashes with the NARS Climax Mascara. It gives drama without clumps or smudging. A beauty vlogger favorite, it also gives the best curl without making your lashes crunchy.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

Working hard
For some, Feb, 14 is just another Thursday. You’re probably saving the festivities for the weekend. Working for that break doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself. Against the cold and drying office AC, the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant will keep your hands soft and supple. Keep it on your desk along with the H&M Sea Mist Salt Water Spray. It’ll give your hair some texture and that piece-y look. Spray it on to look good for that meeting in the easiest way.

Partying out
Dancing with your best friends should be matched with fun items. A new release from Covergirl is the TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette in Dazed. It features eight vibrant and sparkly colors. I love how it features a guide on what colors you can use on the crease, base, and the corner eye so you can pull off the fun without so many complications. To complement this, apply the Australis Cosmetics High Life Illuminating Strobe Powder which offers a glow without the excess sparkle. I like the color Ignite which works for fair and morena skin tones.

Lush Cosmetics Bath Bomb

Staying in
Sometimes, the best V Day gift is to skip out on the rush. After a tedious day, it feels nice to have a long bath or shower. Before heading home, get something from Lush Cosmetics. It can be their new Bath Bomb in Peach or the American Dream. As you go on to do your nighttime skincare routine, you can light the Patty Ang Candle in Journee for a relaxing scent of plumeria, cedarwood and Himalayan salt. JB
