Hi babes! I'm sure by now you could do the countdown with me: three days until Valentine's Day! I know some people absolutely hate Valentine's day and some are super excited it about it (heck, I'm excited for a date night)! Here's a few ways to celebrate Valentine's Day by yourself, with friends or with a certain someone special!

Plan a spa night with your friends or loved one!
Grab some face masks, nail polish, rent a movie and spend the night in. One of my favorite masks right now is the Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask. I mean, c'mon, it self heats! Apply this mask to a wet face and apply product with your hands. Massage it around for about a minute for it to heat up and then rinse. The Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser can be used for a spa night or every night! Charcoal is supposed to trap 2x more dirt then a basic cleanser. Apply to wet face, apply to hands and work into foam. Massage over face and rinse. 

Send someone a card! 
There is nothing better then receiving snail mail. My go-to card for any occasion is Papyrus at Rite Aid. Papyrus has the most gorgeous cards to send. They're always so pretty and detailed. They all come wrapped in plastic with an envelope and a seal which I absolutely love. The above cards are so glam and come with an empty inside so you can write whatever you want inside. The below ones are special for Valentine's Day and OMG - they are SO cute! I already have a person picked out for every card. Love it! Papyrus is sold in 300 different Rite Aids.

The hearts in the hot sauce bottle move around!

It's hot pink and velvet? I'm sold!

Hot pink ombre! This card is best for someone who likes to get straight to the point.

I absolutely died at this card. The sushi is 3D and ahh. It's so freakin' cute!

Awww. Puppies always make me smile!

Get dolled up!
Whether you're going out with your friends or going out with your special someone for Valentine's Day, there's nothing like getting all glammed up. Heck, sometimes I get all glam just to sit home. For a sexy smokey eye with nude lip try using the products below. 

Start off with a nice foundation like the Eddie Funkhouser Luxlight Revitalizing Foundation and then set it with the Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder. For the eyes, Eddie Funkhouser's Ultimate Smokey Eye Palette is all you need! Try putting Center Stage (matte smokey taupe) on the lid and Archetype (shimmering chocolate) in the crease and Femme Fatale (matte onyx) in the outer V to deepen the look. For mascara, Eddie Funkhouser's Quattro Variable Lash Mascara (review) is nice but I recommend only using stages 1 and 2. 3 and 4 seem to give me a bit of spider lashes. I'll have a full review on this soon but Eddie Funkhouser's Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus in Absolute Black is amazing for creating cat eye. It lasts for FOREVER! Finish off the look with the new Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Plums Up - a little goes a long way and a nice sheer nude lipgloss like Eddie Funkhouser's Hydrating Lip Gloss in Meow Meow.
