Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the special things in our lives, from romance and close girlfriends to our love affair with beauty. Whether you’re choosing to paint the town red or have a quiet evening at home, it’s important to look—and feel—your best.
Barely Xtensions offers tips to have the best Valentine’s Day yet:
Bring Sexy Back
Love is in the air. Love for makeup, that is!
Indulge the senses with the prettiest lip gloss that looks luscious and tastes sweet like red my mind, sultry eyeshadows complimented by glitter eye pigment to add luster and glow, lashes, liner, and mascara.
Don’t forget the hair! Complement your natural hair with Barely Xtensions to keep the mystery alive. If you’re doing a sexy, smoldering eye with heavy shadow and long luscious lashes, then keep the rest of your face neutral.
Likewise, if you want to play up your gorgeous mouth (to inspire lots of kisses later??), choose a bold color lipstick and keep your eyes (and the rest of your face) understated.
Surprise, Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
Valentine’s Day is a great time to get personal and creative with gift giving.
Treat your significant other to something special. Create a handmaid card or personal gift that only the two of you understand.
Make your own decadent chocolate truffles. Indulge his love for hobbies—such as new gym clothes or a cool new duffle bag for his workout obsession, cooking tools or cookbooks for the wanna-be gourmet chef, or a fancy new cocktail shaker for the host with the most.
Give him the gift of style with a stunning new shirt, cool sunglasses, or a leather satchel. Guys love “gift of the month” clubs, and there are tons to choose from—including beer, cheese, cigars and more (even pickles!).
Celebrate Galentine’s Day
Don’t just celebrate romantic love this February—gather your girlfriends and celebrate Galentine’s Day on February 13.
Some ideas: do a spa day and get massages, manis, pedis and facials while drinking champagne and eating chocolate-covered strawberries. Book a cooking class and learn to whip up something delicious together. Or get tickets to a fabulous concert and sing at the top of your lungs!!
More of a homebody? Invite the girls over for a movie night with wine and pizza! Or do at-home beauty treatments with face masks, manis, and DIY gel nails. You could organize a clothing/jewelry swap with the besties, talk about your worst dating disasters, crank up the tunes, share the latest gossip and laugh your faces off!!
