Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for a little getaway with your sweetie. Although I was a little bit early, I took off to Niagara Falls this past weekend with my boyfriend for a cute little escape and for the chance to have some fun adventures and alone time. It was a ton of fun, and even though we didn’t wait for Valentine’s Day, I loved having a chance to get away from home for a little while with him!
When you’re getting ready for a Valentine’s Day getaway (or just a romantic escape in general), you have to make sure that you pick the right items for the weekend. Personally, beauty on the go for a weekend with my SO is all about looking pretty & fresh-faced without too much effort – aka no makeup-makeup! I’ve picked 4 of my favourite Clarin’s products for a gorgeous fresh-faced look that will bring out your natural beauty when you’re on the go. Read on to learn more about them and receive free shipping on your purchase at clarins.ca!
1. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm ($50 CAD): This balm is perfect for giving skin a quick, glowing boost. Once this balm has been patted (not rubbed) on to the face, the skin looks instantly brighter and more well rested. I find that it works really well to balance out the skin and smoothes fine lines & pores. It’s so perfect for prepping the skin for makeup application as well (not that you really need it), helping it to set perfectly & last!
2. Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara ($27 CAD): For the eyes I’m all about big flirty lashes that really bring attention to you! This mascara has the best of both worlds – length, volume & curl – for lashes that are absolutely gorgeous & perfect for shooting a suggestive wink your SO’s way.
3. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Candy Flush ($20 CAD): A killer gloss is a must-have for Valentine’s Day, natch. This gloss is smooth, not sticky, and gives a beautiful flush to the lips. The colour isn’t too intense and is actually quite natural looking, just giving your lips a gorgeous, shimmery boost. Not only that, it helps to keep your lips moisturized & smells/tastes sweet, so your guy is going to have no problem going in for some V Day kisses.
4. Clarins Blush Prodige in Soft Peach ($32 CAD): The perfect finishing touch? A pretty flush on the apples of your cheeks. This blush is a beautiful, natural-looking peach shade with a hint of golden shimmer throughout to warm up your look for an instantly warmer, healthy looking appearance.
Combined, these four products make the perfect on the go beauty look which I think is just right for a romantic getaway this Valentine’s Day.
