St. Valentines Day
Hey babes! We think Valentine's Day should be dedicated solely to showing your love and appreciation for all the special people in your life. Whether it be your significant other, your friends & family or even (most importantly) yourself! Let's spread our love like confetti! We've outlined three looks to suit every occasion, no matter how you choose to celebrate.
Go and love yourself
If you are spending the day of love solo, take the opportunity to treat yourself to some self-reflection and pampering, and maybe one too many glasses of wine while no one is there to judge. Take this time to turn on your faves on Netflix and indulge in our Black Light Intensive Replenishing Mask that has 11 amino acids and argon oil. Trust that this will leave you feeling like you have goddess tresses.
If you want to feel extra soft and smooth, try out the Nail Therapy Mask available at the Vault. This individual finger mask gives each nail the attention it deserves with vitamins C + E, ceramide, milk protein, collagen and Shea butter. This will infuse your nails to promote shine, skin elasticity, protection and softness! Simply wear the masks for 30 minutes to 1 hour, remove and massage the excess into your surrounding skin. We promise your nails and cuticles have never looked this great.
Date Night Glam
If you're headed out for a V-Day dinner date, its easy to achievea soft, romantic makeup look with the right colour palette. Opt for eyeshadow in soft neutral or mauvey tones and add some subtle false lashes for a flirty effect. This will emphasize your eyes, one of the most sensual parts of our body! We promise you will make some sexy eye contact with your man or maybe even a stranger while your out and about with the girls. To keep this look monochromatic, go for blush and lipstick in the same pink/mauve colour family. Matte lipstick wears the best, so opt for this formula if you will be doing lots of kissing and/or eating. Don't forget to pop some highlighter on those cheekbones and you will be looking as angelic as ever.
To get a more sultry look, line your upper lash line with a jet black eyeliner and flick it out at the ends to create a sexy cat eye. Pop a pink or bronzey blush on the apples of your cheeks and a lippy of your choice. Depending on how daring you are you can go for a shiny gloss in a romantic hue or a pigmented lipstick in hot pink or candy apple red.
Girls about town
If your heading out with the squad, be sure your hair is ready to turn heads. Loose waves continue to be our girl's night out go-to. Not only do they create amazing body but they give that effortlessly beautiful look. Start with a thermal protection spray, and wrap your hair around a 1 1/4 inch curing iron curling away from your face. We love the Bex and Babyliss irons that we carry at the Vault. Next, let cool and set with a flexible hair spray or texturizing spray and gently shake out or comb through with your fingers. You can even lightly mist your hair with your favourite perfume for amazing smelling locks! Go get 'em girl.
