It’s almost my all-time favorite holiday of the year (yep, it’s Valentine’s Day because everyone is sweet and consider of each other!), and I wanted to share some of my favorite fashion and beauty gifts to pamper yourself during this sweet holiday. I’m all about self-care, and these treats are just what we need to feel warm and fuzzy right now, whether you’re single or attached.
I can’t get over these cute heart shaped ultra-plush makeup remover pads from Swoon Skin that actually deliver on their promise. They gently cleanse your skin, exfoliate and remove all makeup (yes, even long-wearing) using only water. Plus, you can rest easy knowing that these secret weapons are also non-toxic and eco-friendly. P.S. The curved edges along the heart are actually so perfect for removing stubborn eye makeup. I’m obsessed!
Glam Seamless Hair Extensions
Did you know that hair loss during the pandemic is one of the top concerns of all women right now? I totally get it–we’re stressed and not necessarily feeling our best, so it makes sense that our hair health isn’t exactly top notch. If you just need an extra boost of fabulosity (and who doesn’t?), I highly, highly recommend Glam Seamless Hair Extensions. This high-end luxury brand has every kind of style you could ever wish for (clip-ins, tape-ins, and even their signature U-wig style), stunning colors to pick from, and all made from 100% remy human hair, which is seriously gorgeous and lush. It’s been a game changer for me when I shoot on camera, and just miss my long luscious locks or want to change things up. I feel like a new person every time I clip in my U-wig and as for colors, I’m a dead ringer for the shade “Natural Black.”
Burke Williams Sweetest Dreams At-Home Spa Kit
Depending on where you live, a spa day may be totally out of the question given how things are going with our current Covid numbers. I have been craving relaxation like no other, so I’m so glad I stumbled upon the Sweetest Dreams At-Home Spa Set by Burke Williams. This decadent gift is currently on sale and includes the Burke Williams Vanilla Lemongrass Tea, Body Bliss Lavender & Vetiver Bath Soak, Lemongrass + Eucalyptus ShowerSpa Mist, H2V Beyond Facial Masque, and Sonoma Lavender Massage Oil. My fave in the bundle is definitely the shower mist, which I use almost daily to remind myself to slow down and relax whenever possible.
Deck of Scarlet Lip Oils
I’m always testing new products, so it’s quite rare for me to stop in my tracks and instantly declare love at first swipe. But I think we’ve found something pretty special in these slick lip oils from Deck of Scarlet. A single sweep imparts intense color and a vinyl-like shine, while a nourishing oil blend keeps your pout hydrated for hours on end. There’s a shade for absolutely everyone, and all of the colors are both wearable and striking; no matter how demure or deep you go.
If you need a little pick-me-up for no good reason, may I recommend some fancy yet functional new lingerie? Titov is one line you need to know about. This Boston-based brand has size inclusive styles that get the job done in the most gorgeous ways–like their limited-edition Valentine’s Day unmentionables that feature rose gold rings and beautiful scalloped lace details. Best of all, their famous bralettes are comfy enough to wear all day without losing an ounce of sexiness.
If you ask me, there’s no greater gift than the gift of glam, and for the ultimate treat you can’t go wrong with Velour Lashes. You guys know that I am the lash queen, and this brilliant brand has been my go-to favorite for years! They just launched 100% vegan styles that exceed the luxurious qualities of mink, and they are so good. I love them and I can’t get enough. Stock up online now and thank me later!
DMK Enzyme Therapy Treatment
Earlier this month, I had the rare treat of getting an infamous Enzyme Treatment Facial at the DMK (Danne Montague-King) Clinic in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Which is why I had to share that the gift of good skincare is worth its weight in gold! Like many of you, I’ve struggled with my (usually bouncy, low maintenance, fairly fuss-free) skin during the pandemic, and was growing frustrated with the fact that my skin has been feeling less than its best self for several months now. Unfortunately, I had dry, flaky, irritated skin right where the top of my face mask sits, and nothing I tried worked for weeks and weeks on end.
I jumped at the chance to get a skincare tune-up from DMK, and I am so glad I did. After an indulgent 90-minute treatment at the DMK HQ, I feel like my old self again (okay, maybe better!) I have since been using an arsenal of DMK products at home to keep everything feeling good and looking gorgeous. Insider tip: The DMK foundation is full coverage and budge-proof, which has been a godsend for wearing under face masks, or shooting photos right now. I seriously love his whole line!
After a long pandemic (that seemingly will never end), a DMK facial is just what the doctor ordered. Find a clinic near you ASAP to get a life-changing, results-driven treatment that will get you glowing again.
Any questions? Let me know!
Happy Valentine’s Day, loves!
