Bringing 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.

When it comes to fashion, some ladies want to dress to the “nines” with a hot red dress and sky-high heels. Others opt to celebrate with a sweet pink sweater to celebrate the holiday in a more understated way.

A little black dress is always in style and on point. Or dress up jeans with a fun statement necklace or funky bangles. Being comfortable and authentic to YOU is ultimately the most gorgeous look of all. Add a beautiful hairstyle to match to compliment edgy, cool, classy or sassy.

Galentine’s Day

Don’t just celebrate romantic love this February—gather your girlfriends and celebrate Galentine’s Day!

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!!

Whatever you decide to do make sure to celebrate love in February!
