How to impress your date, and ideas for celebrating Galentine’s Day with your favorite gal pals!
It’s that time of the year again, when we gorge ourselves on chocolate (priorities!), and also of course, celebrate our loved ones - Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day with your BFFs or have a hot date planned, we have ideas to help you melt away the winter blues with feelings of love. Of course you want to pretty yourself up for whoever’s attention you’re trying to catch this Valentine’s Day, but you also want that special someone to cherish you for who you truly are. Isn’t that what love is?! That’s why we’ve come up with some date night makeup looks that focus on enhancing your natural beauty to really captivate your date. For Valentine’s Day makeup, we’re highlighting dewy fresh skin and warm fruit pigmented® tones for romantic date night makeup that’ll melt your darling’s heart and leave them wishing for more.
Galentine's Gift Ideas
No matter what, your gal pals will always be there for you, through the silliest of shenanigans and most serious of sticky situations. You might still be nursing a broken heart or burning to catch the attention of your crush, but you know your BFFs always have your back, through thick and thin. Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating that! Take a look at Leslie Knope’s - the character in Parks & Recreation who jump started the holiday - scoop on Galentine’ Day: “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!”
Your Galentine’s Day may or may not include frittatas, but it’s most definitely the time to show your lady friends how much you appreciate them. Why not try a gift that keeps on giving, like a basket full of natural skin care goodies for them to pamper themselves with (you know what they say, skin care for self care!), or a set of lip liners to help them create their dream Valentine’s Look? If you’re stuck on ideas, take a look at our natural gift sets that’ll make adorable, meaningful treats for a Galentine’s Day Party. Rekindle your gal gang by settling down to watch a movie and try a new face mask or decorate nails together.
Valentine's Day Makeup
Valentine’s Day is THE day to put your game face on to really wow your date and and steal their heart. We’re continuing the chocolate theme here by including some of our cocoa rich makeup products for your date night makeup. Did you know that smelling chocolate can relax the mind and decrease stress? We’re helping you and your date get a good whiff of this luscious ingredient so you can truly have an unforgettable time together.
Fresh Date Night Makeup
Healthy is attractive, and this look’s got the full package to helping you look radiant with energy. This fresh look highlights dewy skin with a natural peachy flush that’s been kissed with natural fruit pigments. With glistening ruby lips that provide the cherry on top, your date will be completely captivated by your natural glow and blossoming beauty.
WANT THE LOOK?
On the Face:
Say goodbye to cakey foundation and concealer, because we’ve got a real winner here. Our BB Cream offers natural looking coverage with a luminous finish so you can look flawless throughout your special day. Apply by patting the creamy formula all over your face with clean fingers, or with a Makeup Blender. Dab some Fruit Pigmented® Healthy Foundation onto areas where you want some more coverage, like under your eyes or over blemishes.
On the Cheeks:
For this lively look, we’ve chosen a creamy blush in warm coral to give you healthy flushed cheeks that perfectly complement your ruby lips. Contains moisturizing shea and cocoa butters for softer skin just waiting to be caressed.
On the Eyes:
Light pinky coral enhances your natural skin warmth so you look like you stepped right out of a floral paradise. Blend some Fruit Pigmented® Blush: Mimosa onto your eyelids with an eyeshadow brush for a soft feminine look. For a truly bright eyed look that practically shouts “all eyes on me!,” finish with Fruit Pigmented® Ultra Lengthening Mascara - Black Tea for distinct lashes.
On the Lips:
Every romance begins with a kiss, and today we’re bringing you a set of ruby lips that’s perfectly fit for drawing more smooches out of your loved one. Dab a small amount of deep berry red lip stain onto your lips and blend for stunning color that resists sweat and oil. Finally, layer some natural gemstones onto your lips with our Gemmed Lip Gloss: Garnet to say how much your date truly means to you.
Milk Chocolate Date Night Makeup
Ready to melt some hearts with your dreamy complexion? This look highlights warm neutrals and sultry chocolate tones for you to look like the goddess of romance. Go for a classic winged eye look that’ll have your date begging to know the secrets that you hold in your eyes.
WANT THE LOOK?
On the Face:
What’s the best way to achieve natural looking and effortless glow? A luxurious BB Cream that does double duty by moisturizing your skin with shea butter and also provides luminous coverage. Contour with Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer - Cocoa Glow and make sure to blend for a natural look. For a refresher on how to contour, refer to our past blog. You’ll be looking like a chocolate goddess in no time!
On the Cheeks:
Warm colors are the perfect way to defrost your winter skin and give you that lovestruck look that will send your date’s heart pounding. Our Fruit Pigmented® Lip & Cheek Tint: Shimmery Cocoa Berry is a deep plum coral that was meant for romantic candlelit dinners and for making you look extra delectable during those more intimate moments.
On the Eyes:
This wouldn’t be a called “Chocolate Makeup Look” if it weren’t for the beautiful cocoa pigments and ingredients in our natural makeup products that bring it all together! Add definition with Long Last Liquid Eyeliner: Dark Chocolate on your upper lash line, as well as your outer corners to really add a kick to your Valentine’s Day makeup. Apply Dark Chocolate Maracuja Mascara for feathery lashes that will set your love’s heart aflutter.
On the Lips:
“Are my lips too dry? Does my breath smell ok?” We all get more self conscious about our lips (and our heart beats faster!) when we think about giving a kiss to the one we admire. Our Rum Nougat Lip Caramel is a luscious lipstick packed with pomegranate oil and cocoa butter to keep your lips soft and pucker ready. It’s colored with antioxidant rich achiote seeds too instead of toxic coal tars (not attractive at all!), so you and your date can smooch worry free.
