Love is in the air and we are head over heels for these easy ways to festivize your look this Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re off to dinner with your significant other, throwing a Galentine’s Night with the besties, or painting the town stag, we felt inspired to share tips to glam up your routine in a pinch. 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!

Don’t be intimidated to try a hair bow! Pull hair half way out of a hair tie, separate the halves, and lay the tail over the hair tie to hide it. Fasten it with bobby pins, and you’re done!
