Valentine’s Day 2018: Gift Guide and Styling Tips
by Jane Stringham//
Medieval sweethearts, like Lancelot and Guinevere, traded locks of hair as tokens of love. While we don’t advocate chopping off a chunk of your Lunatic Fringe-styled tresses this holiday, we do subscribe to the notion that gifts can act as stand-ins for their givers. In the same way that antique combs—embellished with Cupids, hearts, and scenes of courtly wooers—suggested intimacy and admiration, so too can our Valentine’s Day picks from longtime favorites Jane Iredale and Kerastase. Scroll through for a video tutorial on how to use these giftable goodies.
A Rose Dawn Bronzer Quad says, “you are versatile, glowing, and slightly sparkly!” to any lucky recipient. We suggest swirling a Jane Iredale Fan Brush across all four shades and liberally applying to the apple of your cheek; you can even use the cool, bronze pinks across your collar bones and décolleté. Highlight, contour, and add shimmer to eyelids, too. As always, Jane Iredale makeup is cruelty-free, non-comedogenic and nourishing to your Valentine’s skin.
The Play On Lip Crayon in Hot is an easy-to-apply, accessible and no-fail addition to your Valentine’s gift bag. Its creamy pink-red pops in the late winter light, and Vitamin E conditions for kissable lips.
The styling innovation that is L’incroyable Blowdry was tailor-made for date-night hair! With just two pumps of this heat lotion pre-blowdry, our model’s long, soft waves will last and last. Unparalleled shape memory and miracle heat-sensitive technology help hair set and re-set with ease; and, as an added product bonus, L’incroyable boasts 96 hour anti-frizz control and thermal protection up to 450°.
Strong-hold hairspray Laque Noir performs best on dry, styled hair. Its non-sticky, humidity protective formula refines and prolongs elaborate styles. And, here’s a Lunatic Fringe insider’s tip: after distributing product in a circular motion, turn the bottle sideways and use to smooth stubborn frizz! See our styling video below for a how-to.
