Valentine's or a Hot Date Beauty Preparation Guide

Love it or hate it, Valentine's day is around the corner! and whilst I dislike the over commercialisation of it, I do love the idea of taking a day out to show some extra lurveee to those you love. Don't you just love my overuse of the word love in one sentence! :-)

Now I know that we should show the people we care about that we love them everyday, but lets be real, sometimes life gets busy and it's not as easy to do. So I like to think of Valentines day, as an opportunity to  take time out to appreciate the people I care about, from the lovely Mr LPM, my mum, sisters, friends, you my lovely readers and Me.

So whether you are going out on a hot date, are bah humbug about Valentines, or hanging out with some of your friends,  I thought I would share some of my favourite products that I think are great for helping you prepare for any kind of night out . 

Diptyque Figuier Candle (here): there is something about candles that creates a lovely ambience and aroma and I love putting one on when I'm getting ready to go out, and this one is one I always reach for. It's woody and figgy (is that even a word)  and smells just like Diptyque's Philosykos perfume which is is one of my favourite perfumes

Dermalogica's Hydrating Masque (here) is great for hydrating my face during the cold months and I find that when I use it prior to applying my makeup, my makeup always seems to go on smoother and it has a nice plump and healthy glow

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette (here) - the pinky rosey gold tones in this palette are just so pretty and soft , so I will be going for a rose gold smokey eye look for my night out

Sisley Phyto Lip Twist in Berry 5 (here) - newly launched this February, I love this tinted balm! It gives a nice wash of colour to my lips and keeps them soft, moisturised and completely kissable :-) (I will be posting a full review of this next week)

Tom Ford's Black Orchid (here) - One of my absolute favourite perfumes of all time (I actually wore this on my wedding day so it holds a special place in my heart) it's deep, it's warm, it's beautiful and has such a sensual smell. Love it!

And that's it, some of favourite products that I will be using to show myself some love and feel beautiful on Valentine's day!

So hot date or not, what will you be doing on Valentines day to show some extra love to either yourself or those you care about? Let me know in the comments below
