Treat Yourself With Carrie Underwood's Valentine's Day Gift Guide
Not only does Carrie Underwood have a phenomenal set of pipes, she's pretty handy with a mascara wand and curling iron. Carrie famously does her own makeup and hair on tour; according to her longtime stylist Melissa Schleicher, beauty is Carrie's time to relax. Considering the Almay brand ambassador knows beauty inside and out, we recruited her to curate a Valentine's Day gift guide for those of us addicted to all things pretty. Whether you want to snag the perfect present for your beautiful best friend or yourself (no judgment!) or need some ideas to inspire your significant other, Carrie's covered all your bases with a surprising selection of beauty treats.

Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit
"If you gave anybody the Smoky-i Kit before Valentine's Day, it would make her feel even better for a nice date night. You can put on a little more for a more dramatic look, but you really can't mess it up. Anybody can use this and have a really great smoky eye."
"I think a spa day is one of the most perfect gifts, especially one any guy could ever get for his lady . . . Just some sort of relaxation. We deserve it."
Try: Bliss Spa (prices vary)
"This is something every girl needs to have in her arsenal. You gotta practice! Use it on a day that you don't really have to look good and you'll figure it out."
Try: T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand ($230)
Almay Butter Kiss Lipstick
"Sometimes if you're going to wear lipstick, you feel like you have to get something more [drying] so it will stay on . . . and then you get it everywhere. But you can't go wrong with these. I like the Berry [shade]."
"I have a ton of travel-size candles, and I take them everywhere. They can make any place feel a little more serene and relaxed. I like things that smell like spa, so I like lavender, vanilla, or citrus."
"Making a commitment to being more active is something we could all probably be a little better at. [But] I'd be mad if my husband got me a gym membership, actually."
Try: Equinox (prices vary)
