How to Get a Beautiful Valentine’s Day Glow (Inside and Out!)

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Are you ready to feel the love? Regardless of your relationship status, it’s a great time to celebrate everything that makes you happy in life — including looking and feeling great! Just in time, we've got 11 awesome ideas to help you celebrate yourself on February 14th. Read on to get a gorgeous, V-Day glow, both inside and out!

Valentine's Day Glow

Rock a Red Lip

There’s nothing like a swipe of bright red lipstick to immediately boost your mood. A matte shade, like NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red, will stay on through countless kisses.

V-Day Beauty Tip: Make sure to moisturize your lips thoroughly before putting on a matte color. This will ensure it goes on smooth and lasts longer!

Glow On

Dewy skin looks oh-so-sexy, but there’s a fine line between dewy and oily. We love Lancôme La Base Pro Hydra Glow Illuminating Makeup Primer, because it gives your face a natural, non-greasy-looking glow.

V-Day Beauty Tip: Always drink plenty of water, and make sure to exercise regularly. A truly healthy glow starts from the inside!

Get Lovely Locks

Sleek, shiny hair is always alluring, especially when it’s soft to the touch. Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist is a great, double-duty strand styler. It keeps hair in place while adding a silky, high-gloss finish.

V-Day Beauty Tip: Make your mane extra fragrant by pumping a few spritzes of your favorite perfume onto your hair brush or comb before using it.

Nail It

A candy-red nail lacquer, like Essie Nail Polish in Lollipop, is flirty and fun. Apply two coats, then follow with a high-shine top coat. Wear a matching matte lipstick for an extra shot of sexy!

V-Day Beauty Tip: Try this easy DIY nail art idea for cute, V-Day-themed nails that will get his heart pumping.

Wear a Sweet Scent

Be a treat to all of your senses with a great scent. Ralph Lauren Midnight Romance is a fresh floral fragrance that’s also incredibly seductive. Sweet notes like raspberry and peony mix with black vanilla and iris to give you an incredibly sexy, come-hither scent.

V-Day Beauty Tip: Make sure your perfume lasts all night long by spraying it onto damp, freshly moisturized skin.

Butter Up

Use a rich and creamy body lotion, such as Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter, to give yourself soft and supple skin from head to toe.

V-Day Beauty Tip: Don’t forget your feet! Give your tootsies their own V-Day treat by slathering them in body lotion, then covering them with socks while you sleep.
