5 Valentine Inspired Beauty Trends

In continuing with the Valentine's Day theme that I started with here, there are a few material things I would love for Cupid to shoot my way since he's already found me my perfect match in my hubby.  Cue the gag reflexes, I know I know, but it's true!!

Here are some products and looks I'd "love" to try!!

{Looks like Cupid picked on the wrong lady!!}

Products I'd LOVE to own:

1.  Deborah Lippmann nail polish in "Do You Think I'm Sexy" ($18).  Red glitter nails = super sassy!!

2.  Rebecca Minkoff Metallic Cupid Bag ($520).  I love love bags you have the option of either carrying by the handles OR slinging over your shoulder.  And this metallic color would go with everything in my closet!!

3.  Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in color "Romance" ($32).  This pearly shimmery pink look oh so romantic!  And it's Chanel- what more do you need??

Looks I'd LOVE to try:

1.  Fishtail braid.  I still can't seem to master this oh so cutesy and carefree looking braid!!  But I'm going to keep trying.  And I would totally wear it with bright orange red lips like this!  Anyone know the secret to getting this braid right??

2.  Socks with heels.  I want so badly to pull this look off without looking like a Granny OR a schoolgirl.  Still searching for the right outfit because I think this is so cute and lady-like when done right.

3.  Eyelash Extensions.  If I had the bank account to invest in these puppies I would.  Long eyelashes make me feel most feminine and if I could get realistic long wearing ones like this, I'd be in heaven!

What products and trends are you loving this February??

I LOVE the nail polish. Socks with heels however, I just can't see doing it no matter who else is rocking that trend. It just seems 'unnatural."

I'm with you regarding the glittery nail polishes!! I love them all!!
On the fishtail topic, I watched a youtube tutorial some time ago that was quite easy to follow, if you want to have a look
(Luxy Hair channel).

This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much it’s almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want…Ha-ha). You definitely put a new spin on a subject that’s been written about for years. Your post Valentines Day makeup tips is very nice post. Great stuff, just great!

@myinnersuzi- I know it does seem unnatural, but I'm thinking it's kind of like wearing tights that are scrunched at the calf:)
@littleparisienne- thanks for the youtube idea, I could use all the help possible to try and figure out how to do this braid!
@kim- yes, ones would hearts on them would be very valentine day appropriate:)
