Pretty Pink Roses for Valentine’s (Gift Ideas!)

Here are a few rosy pink things to prettify yourself or to give to someone this Valentine’s!

  • L'occitane’s super-popular Cherry Blossom “Cerisier” range expands with the addition of an “Eau Intense” called Cerisier Rouge, which is a sweeter, more delicious version of the original. There’s also a fragrant “Creme Caresse” Petal Soft Cream for silky date-night skin!
  • Illamasqua is a brand known for avant garde makeup, but my favorite polish from the brand is possibly the prettiest, girliest duochrome shell-pink on the planet, aptly called Pink Raindrops
  • Yves Saint Laurent’s super lightweight Gloss Volupte won’t leave your lips all sticky and gross. While there are lots of gorgeous colors, I still love the cherry-rose shade 206 Fuchsia Oran. Wear it on its own for a juicy fuchsia pout, or dab a little in the center of your lip, on top of a nude gloss for that “berry-stained” kiss.
  • Givenchy Le Prisme Yeux in 71 Purple Show is not purple, as I mentioned before. It’s a group of soft pinkish champagne-to-wine tones that’s very different from most palettes on the market, but still pretty on the eyes. 
  • Laneige Pure Radiant Blush no 3 Angel Pink looks intense and matte but goes on with a lit-from-within luminosity without any sparkles.This is sadly hard to locate outside of Asia, but MAC Peony Petal is a good alternative!

Dry shampoo is something that everyone should have for those in-case-of-emergency moments, but those found in the store are full of chemicals! The Hippie Homemaker has the ingredients and directions for all natural dry shampoo for both light and dark hair!

12 Overnight Beauty Products That Actually Work

Most beauty products are targeted toward daytime use, but a third of our lives goes by while we’re asleep! They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing. Now, I know I’m always telling y’all to wash your faces before bed and go to sleep with a clean slate. That is a rule you should never break, but it doesn’t mean you can’t slather on some nighttime treatments to really get the most out of your beauty sleep.

And luckily, there are plenty of overnight products that can make you wake up as ***Flawless as Beyonce. (Well, almost.) You can use nighttime hair masks, hair masks, special lotions, and more to make your sleeping hours beautifully productive.
