With Galentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to give the most important person in your life a little beauty appreciation. Yes, we’re talking about your bestie! We’ve put together a fun beauty guide on how to give your BAE a beauty day she won’t forget, from a relaxing spa treatment, to our “no makeup” makeup recommendations, so she’ll look and feel great on the way to a mimosa-filled brunch!
Head over to the Glam Boutique Spa in Woodland Hills for a Hydro Plus Facial ($150). She’ll feel completely relaxed as the esthetician massages and hydrates her face, and helps get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. What’s great about this facial is that it’s non-invasive, so you can see instant results! Skin is plumped with nutrients such as vitamins, peptides and all the other good stuff that’ll make skin glow all day long. The spa is super cute and offers skincare products such as Epicurean, PCA, and Restoration SkinCare to help maintain that youthful glow.
If she’s in need of a bit of digital detox (or 50 minutes in this case!), Burke Williams is the place to go and your gal friend will thank you. With a couple of different Valentine’s Day packages to choose from, the “Romance” ($159 / regular price $189 and up) package seems most appropriate as it includes a 50-minute Pure Relaxation massage or a 50-minute Spa Style Facial with peel or brightener. Each package includes an H2V Travel kit filled with Burke Williams exclusive H2V skincare line. And if it still seems too weird to give her a “Romance” package, tell her it was from her SO.
Now it’s almost brunch-time! But before you guys head out, grab these products for your BFF so she can create a five-minute “no makeup” makeup look. Here are our tips and suggestions.
Onomie Powerful Priming Serum ($50) This luminescent serum is a two-for-one beauty dream – the duo part action of this formula hydrates the skin like a serum and also “sets” the face to allow for longer wear of makeup.
VERT Beauty Concealer Pencil ($20) – If going without any coverage on the face freaks you out, then opt for this organic, medium coverage concealer, which includes anti-aging Vitamin E and shea butter.
Clarins Skin Illusion Blush ($21.50) This super cute, limited-edition blush is so easy and fun to use. Open it up and find a built-in powder puff applicator and mirror. And if you have a spare second, pop a little blush on the lids with your fingertips for an added touch of color.
Stila HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara ($23) All you need is one coat of this mascara and you’ll instantly have long, thick and luscious lashes, which means less time getting ready and more time for brunch.
Burt’s Bees bee mine Strawberry Lip Balm ($3.30) This limited-edition lip balm was created specifically for Valentine’s Day and it’s 100% natural, keeping lips moisturized all day long.
