It’s time to plan for Valentine’s Day (February 14) and Galentine’s Day (February 13), and whether you’re preparing for a romantic evening with your one-true-love or fun shenanigans with your best girlfriends (or, ideally, both!), Barely Xtensions can help you look your best.
“It’s time to celebrate the special things in our lives, from romance and close girlfriends to our love affair with beauty. Whether you’re choosing to paint the town red or have a quiet evening at home, it’s important to look—and feel—your best,” says Nadine Mullings, National Account Manager with Barely Xtensions.
The following includes some of the ways you can “share the love” in February:
Romantic Date Looks & Ideas
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.
Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
Any special women in your life would enjoy new makeup (visit beauty superstores like Sally Beauty Supply for plenty of choices), hair accessories like clips, bows, or extensions. Beauty treatments like sheet masks are especially “on-trend” right now and are customized for specific skin needs—like ultra-hydrating, acne control, etc.
Pampering gifts like tea, fuzzy slippers, soft blankets, or a good book are spot on and appreciated (hygge is also a huge trend for 2019!).
Treat your significant other to something special. Create a handmaid card or personal gift that only the two of you understand.
Make your own decadent chocolate truffles. Indulge his love for hobbies—such as new gym clothes or a cool new duffle bag for his workout obsession, cooking tools or cookbooks for the wanna-be gourmet chef, or a fancy new cocktail shaker for the host with the most.
Give him the gift of style with a stunning new shirt, cool sunglasses, or a leather satchel. Guys love “gift of the month” clubs, and there are tons to choose from—including beer, cheese, cigars and more (even pickles!).
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!
