Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine's Day from us at Beautiful You!

It’s here today and gone tomorrow – this one day in the year for all those in love! But we should celebrate the love every day… like it’s going out of fashion!

As I mentioned in my previous blog; the most important thing to me is not only to look great for Valentine’s Day but to feel great, too! There are few ingredients to the ‘look good, feel good’ maxim to make us truly beautiful, without braking the bank:

  • Soak in the bath with your favourite products – I always put some candles on in the bathroom, as it creates this beautiful ambience. As you’re already having a ‘me’ time it’s best to use that time wisely and apply a mask on! It won’t hurt ya!
  • Moisturise from top to toe! – if you have body oil use it before you use any body butter or lotion. The same rules apply to the face (but with face products! Don’t use the same moisturiser or oil all over your body and face!). For the chocolate lovers I’ve just discovered the Chocomania products from the Body Shop! Worth to visit your nearest shop asap as the new products retail for introductory price at the moment!
  • Time for a make-up! – But remember, less is more! There are two schools, if you concentrate on the eyes (by creating a Smoky, Rock Star or Diva look) use nude or more natural colours on the lips, …and vice versa!  My all-time favourite make-up products are from the bareMinerals brand, which I love and they look great on!
  • That special LBD (little black dress) – if you never find a day to wear it, today it’s the perfect day! No matter if you’re going out, or staying in! Feeling great is looking great and this will definitely create the ‘wow’ factor! If you’re going out a few accessories would help; like jewellery, pretty clutch bag (which we all have but rarely use!), and a man’s arm to rest on!
  • However, if you decide to stay in, good on you! – a nice dinner, a film, a time for just the two of you is as important as going out that day! 

Whether you spend the day with your loved one or on your own, make it a pamper day!

Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! 

Stay beautiful!
