Valentine Beauty

Sydne-Style-valentines-day-outfit-ideas-little-red-dress-off-the-shoulder-french-connection-heart-what-to-wearThere’s a difference dressing for men versus dressing for women. In everyday life, I dress for myself. But for romantic occasions, like Valentine’s Day, I dress for my boyfriend. And you can never go wrong with a little red dress.

For beauty, it’s the same. While I love playing around with a smoky eye or red lip, my bf prefers minimal makeup. So when we have our belated celebration after fashion week, I’m going for a natural glam look.

To create a bronzed eye and glossy lip, I picked up products at CVS —they have over 10,000 options! I used to be hesitant about buying new drugstore brands since you can’t test them out at a counter. But CVS offers a 100% satisfaction Beauty Guarantee on beauty purchases.  So you can get a full refund with your receipt even if you already opened the product.

On my lips, I did a balm to moisturize then a long-lasting gloss so I don’t have to reapply. On my way out of CVS, I had to pick up some chocolates too for an extra sweet night. The best part? I didn’t have to pay for them thanks to the ExtraBucks Rewards I received from my beauty purchases with my CVS Beauty Club membership.
