A little blackbird told me that not everyone likes Valentines day. That's right, whereas for some the 14th of February is a day to cuddle up and buy too many roses, others just want to make it a regular day and/or throw several darts at pictures of their exes.
So, if you are an occasional dart thrower who is anti-valentines day, then this post is for you. Get rid of all those pink and red rosy florals and replace them with these beauty buys fit for a vixen. You know you can't resist vampy lips and fierce eyes, so let's start now...
Anti-Valentines Day Beauty Buy No. 1: MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil (Absolutely It)
I just love me some purple lips and this one is perfect as a standout look. It's a lip liner but I reckon this would look great for all over definition. Prep with a lip balm, dab your lips to remove the shine and layer the colour on gradually. Blot it and do it again. Then you will be ready to tell valentines day where to go! It costs £14 for 1.2g.
Anti-Valentines Day Beauty Buy No. 2: Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub
Awaken your senses with this seriously minty body scrub from Elemis (£26, 150ml). With sea plant particles, devils apron seaweed and and peppermint essential oil, you will feel so revitalised that you will forget what day it is!
Anti-Valentines Day Beauty Buy No. 3: Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau De Parfum
|Luscious ingredients in the classic Tom Ford|
I LOVE TOM FORD. Just saying. The Black Orchid Eau De Parfum is rather expensive, costing between £48 and £95, but it's absolutely gorgeous. The fragrance is a blend of black truffle, ylang, blackcurrant and bergamot. There is also a slight hint of vanilla to sweeten the deal.
What's more, if you buy it with a Debenhams beauty card you can get lots of money off future beauty buys, which has really come in handy for me in the past.
Anti-Valentines Day Beauty Buy No. 4: Urban Decay Limited Edition Build Your Own Palette, OZ Theodora
I'll admit it, I am a Glinda type of girl, but for those on an anti-valentines day mission the Urban Decay Theodora Palette (£35) is perfect. Mix the black and gold for a shimmery smoky look or go for double green and mix and match. Or scrap that and bust out red vixen lips :).
Anti-Valentines Day Beauty Buy No. 5: Catwalk Sleek Mystique Haute Iron Spray
|Red hot glamour|
Just because you don't feel any love for valentines day doesn't mean your hair should be neglected too. Protect it from the heat when styling with this glam iron heat spray (£9.29, 200ml).
