Clarins V-Day Essentials

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it is the perfect occasion to wear our favourite makeup look. I always love doing pinky and romantic looks for this special day, even if I am actually celebrating a Galentine’s Day this year. Clarins recently sent me a beautiful eyeshadow palette with gorgeous tones of pinks, mauves and neutral colours – perfect for V-Day. I decided to bring together some of my current Clarins essentials and favourite products for this post!

Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day?

The Essentials Palette
This stunning palette comes with 10 eyeshadows: 6 satin, 3 matte and 1 sparkly. They are all nicely pigmented, easy to apply and blend effortlessly. You can create so many gorgeous looks with this product as the colours are very versatile. The package is also very beautiful! It is decorated with an achiote flower; the key active ingredient in the eyeshadows formula.

Supra Volume Mascara
Clarins’ mascaras are phenomenal. They have to be some of my holy grails. This particular one intensifies and enhances the eyelashes after one single coat. I like to apply two coat of this mascara to get the results I desire. I do not feel the need to add falsies as it gives so much volume, length and separation!

BB Skin Detox Fluid SPF 25
My skin has been doing great lately and I decided to switch my regular full coverage foundation for this BB fluid. This little gem gives a very natural and radiant finish with a breathable texture. It is great for balancing the skin and reviving the complexion. It evens out, hydrates and also protects the skin.

Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in Sweet Rose
This gorgeous blush adds the perfect touch of colour and luminosity to the cheeks. If you are looking for a natural healthy-looking glow, this is the ideal blush for you. It is very silky and lightweight, and blends beautifully on the skin. This blush also contains mineral and plant extracts. One of my favourite year round blush, it complements any makeup look!

Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Red Berry
This little treatment is composed of infused oils to nourish and enhance the lips. It is extremely comfortable on the lips and leaves a shiny film that is slightly sweet and not sticky. I personally like to apply it at the beginning of my makeup application – prepping my lips before I apply my favourite lipstick.
