Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and what better way to warm up a cold winter day than by enjoying some quality one-on-one time with your significant other. Maybe you’re planning on getting all dolled up for a fancy night out on the town, or you’re looking forward to a romantic evening at your favorite restaurant. Or, you might even simply spend the night in, cooking a quiet meal at home and snuggling up on the couch with a movie after.
Whatever your plans, Valentine’s Day is the perfect reason to not only spice up your love life, but to spice up your look, too! No matter if you’re going all out or keeping it low key, making a few subtle changes to your look can help you feel confident and sexy – and get your loved one swooning for you.
How to Go Glam this Valentine’s Day
Don’t be afraid to think outside your makeup bag this Valentine’s Day. The same goes for your hairstyle. Try something new! In fact, we recommend practicing some different looks ahead of time. This way, you’ll know exactly what products to reach for and how much time you’ll need to spend on yourself before your date arrives.
Not sure where to get started? Here are just a few romantic Valentine’s Day hair and makeup ideas to try:
Add Some Sparkle
Who doesn’t love a little glitz and glitter? On Valentine’s Day, there’s nothing wrong with sparkling more than normal. Pull out that fun eyeshadow you've been saving for a special occasion - something like Your Name Polychromatic eyeshadow in Charm. Or turn heads with a shimmery highlighter like the BareMinerals Crystalline Glow Highlighter Stick.
Braids, Braids and More Braids!
French braids, Dutch braids, fishtail braids…it doesn’t matter which type you choose, they’re all the rage right now and they’ll all glam up your look on Valentine’s Day. For a sexy look, pull back just the front of your hair into a French braid at your crown, and then curl the rest of your hair into loose waves.
Go Pink or go Home
Add a healthy glow to your cheeks with some lovely pink blush that has a hint of warmth in it. Then, dab a shimmery highlighter above the cheekbones for an extra rosy glow.
Lash It Up
Who doesn’t feel glamorous with long, full lashes? Use a high-quality eyelash curler, pinching your lashes at the roots and sliding along the length with a slight pulsing motion. Apply at least three coats of your favorite mascara to elongate and separate your lashes. Or, you can even try your hand at some false lashes for an even extra sexy look.
Add Some Volume.
Ditch the flat iron on Valentine’s Day and set your waves or curls free. Use a little mousse or styling cream on damp hair to ensure a smooth, frizz-free finish.
No Valentine’s Day makeup look is complete without a bold red lip. Enough said. However, just remember to let this vibrant shade truly shine by going minimalistic with the rest of your makeup. We suggest the BareMinerals Statement Luxe Shine Lipstick in the color Srsly Red.
