Valentine's Day hair & makeup

If you have a special date for Valentine's Day or even if you are just going out with friends, follow these hair and makeup tips to look your best.

Valentine's Day

Go curly

Curly hairstyles, whether worn up or down, offer a very romantic look that's perfect for Valentine's Day. If your hair isn't naturally curly, create curls all over your head with a small barrelled curling iron held vertically. After you have finished, simply run your fingers through your hair (don't brush) to create pretty, loose curls.

Perfect your pout

Slough away any dry skin from your lips with a washcloth. Apply a lip primer or foundation on your lips to create a base. Line your lips with a pencil liner close to your natural lip color. Apply lipstick, blot with a tissue and then apply another coat. Add a touch of gloss for some shine.

Get a manicure

The day before Valentine's Day, get a manicure and pedicure to prepare for your special date. Your nails don't have to be super long to look good, just make sure they are neat and trimmed. Red or pink polish are perfect for Valentine's Day, but don't be afraid to experiment with other shades including nudes and metallics.

Don't forget fragrance

For Valentine's Day, a floral fragrance is ideal. If you don't normally wear perfume, consider a scented body lotion or oil for just a touch of scent that he won't forget.
