Having a holiday on a weekday doesn’t have to inhibit your ability to flash an extra festive flare! So head to work with a small pop of pink that isn’t too distracting or simply and slightly glam up after hours without cutting into your evening plans.

Take Your Routine Up a Notch

We know, time in the morning is limited, so we gathered a few favorites that will work into your daily routine that aren’t time-consuming or as desperate for attention as Cupid’s target.

Heart eyes for eyeshadow? Place a small heart sticker right below your brow bone and apply your favorite eyeshadow right on top. Peel off the sticker, add some setting spray, and you’ll see this cute design is love that lasts!

If eyeshadow intimidates you, this one’s for you! Line the lips with a deep mauve or even magenta, blending the color into your natural lip toward the center. Top with sheer shimmer gloss concentrated on the middle for an awesome ombre effect. A radiant gradient!
