Historically valentines day had nothing to do with love and expression of love- it is the day when a catholic priest and bishop both coincidentally named Valentine were matyred- it’s not until sometime in the 14th century when it was somehow associated with romance.
For this was on seynt Volantynys day

Today, it is associated with spending, insincere show of affection and unnecessary heartaches.
I don’t celebrate VD as a matter of faith and my own personal feeling that love should be expressed everyday. We should take a moment in every opportunity to go over board with dinner plans, love tokens, glamorous outfits and gorgeous makeup- not just once in a year and that too, just as a fad.
VD has been overly commercialized and publicized and thus has become one of the many current events that creates panic among women- what to do, what gift, what to dress, what makeup to wear?
Here is my makeup suggestion: If you must, then look natural:-)
Yes, you have a right to share your creativity with your loved one but when you want to impress you don’t want to be doing something you like but your partner doesn’t.
Like it or not, ‘real men’ are simple- they like you for you and prefer not to wait hours for you to get done- so take your best foot forward by showing off your natural beauty.
