Everything you need to get a feel-good glow this winter
Before you can love anyone else, you've got to love yourself. That's my mantra this Valentine's Day, and it's a great reminder that treats and flowers feel fabulous no matter where they come from. One of the best ways to show yourself some love in the winter months is by taking the time to pamper yourself, either with a spa night or by getting gorgeous for a night out on the town.
Even better, combine the two! In addition to the classic mani-pedi, a new crop of drop-in salons are offering on-demand beauty services along with the perfect party atmosphere for a girls' night out. Sip prosecco with your pals while you get blowouts or beachy waves at Drybar, or pick up a few makeup tips from the experts at Blushington.
For a luxurious at-home experience, here are a few of the best new products designed to make you feel (and look!) like a queen for the night.
NARSissist Cheek Palette
This spring's makeup forecast is all about cheeks, and this little palette is packed with trend-setting shades. It's better than a box of chocolates!

Be good to yourself - and your lips - with a nonsticky gloss that's made with clean ingredients like jojoba oil, a super-strength natural moisturizer.
Erborian Pink Perfect Creme Primer
Blur lines and smooth your skin's texture with this featherweight primer, introduced to me by the artists at Blushington.
