This year’s valentine’s day is special as it is the first one after our wedding. I am really looking forward to it, not like there is a specific day to celebrate love, we can do it everyday. However, 14th feb just sets a mood and creates a lovely atmosphere around. 
If you are going for a date night or even just hanging out with friends, here are some of my favorite beauty picks for the day!
UD Naked 3 palette: This has to be the star of the show. With the most gorgeous rose-pink shades this palette is the perfect for a romantic day or night look. It has a wide range of shades from light pink to metallic rose golds to a couple of dark plum shades to create a smoky look. The quality of UD eyeshadows are spot on as always, so buttery and pigmented. Love this palette to bits!
MAC Fleur power blush: You don’t need a blush when you are with your special someone. But this one is hard to pass, it is this gorgeous light dusty pink and gives the most beautiful and natural pink flush to your cheeks. This is my go-to for a no-blush blush look. 
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick: Totally pamper yourself with this lipstick which screams luxury! I have it in the shade Rose tension which is a gorgeous rose shade. It is a very creamy, moisturizing lipstick and has medium to opaque coverage. It is expensive, but great for a gift to pamper yourself!

Essie Nail polish: This is the newest addition to my collection, I don’t know my obsession with pinks. Status Symbol is a bright pink shade, just perfect for your valentine’s day manicure. The quality of essie as always is great, smooth and easy to apply!
Giorgio Armani Si perfume: If you get a chance, try a sample of this and I am sure you will be addicted. It is a sweet floral, musky fragrance and a spritz is all you need to get your look together and set your mood for the date.
So what is your plan for valentine’s day- whether you are having a cozy night at home, going out on a date or hanging out with friends, have fun and celebrate the most beautiful emotion in this world that is Love!
Happy valentine’s day folks!

    It was the first valentine's day after our wedding, too! I'm glad that we decided to make it a bit special and it was lovely to spend some quality time with my husband!

  • I spent my Valentine's evening eating pizza while playing Diablo III with my boyfriend, lol. Best plan ever.

    I definitely don't give enough love to my Naked 3, have to fix that soon! My favourite shade is Trick, such a special eyeshadow. Also, I really want to own a YSL lipstick at some point. Worth it even if it's for the packaging, lol.

  • You're most welcome! Would love to hear your thoughts on my Valentines day picks πŸ™‚ too! http://shehearts.net/valentines-day-gift-guide/

  • Oh! My! You have featured 3 of my favs here πŸ™‚ Essie, YSL and the Naked palette. I want to get the palette (that's the only thing I don't have) but I am still not 100% concealer and foundation application so I don't want to do a patchy job with such precious goods! πŸ™‚

  • I just discovered your blog and I really love your style. Read your about me, and we definitely share the same philosophy when it comes to beauty and happiness. Looking forward to reading all your posts.
