Valentine’s Day on the 14 February is a day to celebrate love with your loved ones, be that your partner, family or friends. As any beauty addict will know – a celebration is another great excuse to change up your look and try new and exciting products. And have I got some extra special treats to get you date night ready for Valentine’s Day and beyond!
Kiko Hydra Pro Glow
For any special occasion, such as a date night, you want your skin to be moisturised and glowing. Kiko Hydra Pro Glow offers both. This light cream, with SPF 10, sinks in to skin quickly. The cream is ever so slightly tinted, it won’t disrupt your base or add colour but what it does do is add a glowing radiance to your face. And thanks to the addition of Hyaluronic Acid, your skin will feel hydrated and plumped and will continue to do so with ongoing use.
This cream is lovely and will be perfect in the warmer months. At the moment I am adding it on top of a thicker moisturiser to add glow and additional hydration. Find it here
Pur Love Your Selfie 2
I’ve wanted to try PUR for a while and I have been totally spoilt with this gorgeous Pur Love Your Selfie 2 Set. It’s got everything you need for date night makeup and would also be great for a weekend away (if your date night goes well!).
All the powders are super pigmented and blend like a dream. Here’s what you’ll find in this amazing palette:
- 8 powder eye shadows – 4 matte, 4 glittery
- 3 face powders – 1 baking powder, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer
- 1 mascara
- 1 lip liner
- 1 lip gloss
Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows: top row of palette (fore finger-Abstract, middle-Panorama, ring-Statuesque, pinkie-Headshot).
Middle row (fore finger-Paparazzi, middle-Megapixel, ring-Sketch, pinkie-Pose):
Swatches of the face powders (fore finger-bronzer in Composition, middle-highlighter in Photogenic, ring-baking powder in Overexposed):
Pur Fully Charged Mascara:
Pur Fully Charged mascara is also included. It’s a super black mascara with a wand that grips every lash and gives your lashes volume and length.
Pur Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Pur Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Focal Point is also included.
Pur Lip Gloss in Silhouette
The Lip Pencil can either be worn on its own and all over the lips or is the perfect match for the Lip Gloss, which is pigmented enough to be worn in place of lipstick.
Here are the swatches – Lipgloss in Silhouette (left), Lip Pencil in Focal Point (right)

And how can you resist the cute packaging of the Too Faced Sweethearts blush. You can either use one of the three powders or do as I do, which is to swirl a blusher blush over all three shades. This gives a natural peachy pink flush to cheeks.
Here are the individual swatches of all three powders:
