February, also known as the month of love is here and the 14th is just days away. Whether you have plans with your significant other or a date with yourself and a large glass of wine, it’s occasions like these that give us the perfect excuse to treat yourself, dress up and spice up your look.
I have been on the hunt for a new scent for months now. It can be extremely difficult finding just the right one that sits perfectly with your skin. I sampled “Margaux” the other day while shopping at Art Effect on Armitage and could not get over the beautiful blend of gardenia, bergamot, jasmine and a little bit of vanilla. I went back the next day and treated myself to an early Valentine’s day gift to myself! I love that this scent can be worn day to night by just adding a matte red lip.
Essence Cosmetics also has the perfect array of bold lipsticks, pretty eyeshadow palettes and mascara that will make your lashes miles long. Given my minimal make up routine, I love occasions like these to experiment with some statement lips and shadows.
I can’t wait to transition these hues come spring time. Color is huge this spring and these tones are perfect to brighten up anyone’s look!
Although February is the “month of love,” it should only serve us as a kind reminder to always love yourself because in the end, self-love is the ultimate self-decoration!
