Guys, it’s less than a week away until Valentine’s Day.
It doesn’t matter if you have a significant other or not, this day is all about celebrating the love, so whether you’re spending it with your beau or your best gal pal (or furry friend), there’s always a reason to get excited.
I’ll have a last-minute gift guide going up on Monday, but some items you definitely need are some flirty lashes and V-Day-appropriate nails.
If you don’t feel like painting them red or pink, ImPRESS Manicure has some fabulous Valentine’s Day designs, that will having anyone wanting to hold your hand. I’ve blogged about these before and they are still my all-time fave press-on nail brand since they offer so many cute designs and are so easy to apply. These guys don’t have a separate glue to apply them, instead you just remove the clear backing and press them on. The adhesive really does stay on your nails for up to a week.
As you can see, they have some amazing styles available for Valentine’s Day that will honestly transcend into the rest of the year (I would totally sport nails with “Love” printed on them after V-Day). My faves are definitely the ones with the glitter accent nails.
Whenever I pop these on I always get so many compliments since they make your nails look nice and long, and feature amazing designs that are so eye catching.
Finally, something that needs to be in everyone’s makeup collection are false lashes. I don’t really wear them that often unless I’m going on a nice date with my boyfriend (or doing a look for my blog), but I’ve always been a fan of the Kiss Lashes.
Since you’re bound to be extra flirty on February 14, look into picking up a pair of either their Ever EZ lashes or the Blooming Lash. I have so many pairs of these and I really do swear by them (ask any of my friends). Not only are they super affordable (you can find them at most drugstores or places like Walmart), but they are also amazing quality and look very realistic. They use 100 per cent human hair on their lashes and they are very flexible and lightweight to wear. I have other pairs of mink lashes that are pricier, but honestly, I prefer these.
Like I said, the Ever EZ ones are my favourite since they are very pretty once applied and blend in nice with your natural eyelashes. I do use their glue as well since I find it works way better than others out there, like Duo. I have the black aloe one, but I love the Ever EZ Strip Lash Adhesive since you apply it with a wand, which means no mess and a more tailored application.
I have a makeup look coming up Friday where I use a pair of the Ever EZ ones pictured above. Kiss offers these lashes in multipacks, which is so convenient to have on hand. They also have a new faux mink collection out as well that I’m dying to try. In the meantime though, I’m loving my staple lashes, ones that I’ll definitely be sporting on Valentine’s Day next Tuesday.
