BEAUTY : Valentine’s Hot Tips

Another of my pieces for Fashion Capital.  Thought I would spread the love with my Valentine’s tips XXX




Pucker up girls, Valentine’s Day is soon upon us.  Pash-fest or marriage proposal, get yourself looking gorgeous with some of my hot tips below….

1. Kick start the romantic mood with a candlelit bath.  For a truly indulgent experience, pour in a few capfuls of Neom Organic Bath Oil, £32 – the ‘Restore’ version will energise you for the night ahead.  (0870 460 4677)

2. Light a beautiful Roses Diptique candle, £38 and a soft-focus effect in your bathroom is yours.  (0207 224 4948)

3. If you want to take bathing to a new level of girly-ness, wash away with M&S Florentyna Soap Roses, £3.50 – they are so pretty it’s almost a shame to use them!  (0845 302 1234)

4. For soft and smooth skin, slather on a moisturizer which smells good enough to eat. The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Butter, £12.20 is succulently fragrant. (thebodyshop.com)

5. Before putting on makeup, make sure to prep properly – skin glows when it’s hydrated and healthy.  Nivea Visage Natural Beauty Moisturiser, £8.79 hydrates beautifully and adds a subtle yet skin-enhancing sheen to the skin.  Wear alone for that no-make-up-look that boys just love, or as a good base for foundation.  (0845 644 8556)

6. And how to make your lips a veritable beacon of kissability?  A coat of MAC CremeSheen Lipglass, £12.72 will dazzle him with super-sexy shine. (maccosmetics.co.uk)

7. Or for a seductive pillarbox red, Elizabeth Arden Colour Intrigue Lipstick in GoGo Red, £15 is just your ticket (you’ll also be helping a great cause – £1 in every purchase goes towards raising awareness of heart disease and stroke in women).  (0207 574 2714)

8.  Last but not least, don’t ruin a great snog with bad breath – ew! Be sure to have Anatomicals You Kiss Artist You, £5.50 in your handbag at all times. Containing mints, lipbalm and a fresh-breath spray, this kit is a minty mouth must-have! (asos.com)
