Gift Guide: The Sweetest Beauty Buys for Your Valentine


Just about a year ago, Chris showed up to my door on Valentine’s Day with flowers and a L’Oréal eyeshadow palette, because he said he thought I’d like it better than chocolates. A year later and I still think that beauty can be some of the most thoughtful gifts.

January was a crazy month filled with travel and family and the start of a new semester. This February, I’m looking forward to getting more quality time in - which to me, is the best gift. But if you’re looking for some cute Valentine’s gifts for your friends, family, partner or just yourself, here are my favorites out right now.
