5 ways to have the prettiest V-Day ever

 
 
For the beauty editors here at GL, Valentine’s Day isn’t really about celebrating singledom or cuddling up with a cutie—it’s about an awesome excuse to get all girly-girl glammed up. A date is great, but we’re getting primped out on V-Day regardless of relationship status. Snag our five pretty picks for one ultra-romantic day…

    Primp your tips

    Wear your heart on your sleeve…but also on your nails. We heart this lovely lacquer: a clear base filled with (squee!) pink and red glitter hearts. For a crushable mani, first trim nails neatly and wipe with acetone to get ‘em ultra clean. Then swipe on a coat (or two or three, depending on how thick you want the hearts to be) and seal with a completely clear topcoat to make your mani ultra shiny. Rushing out the door for your date? Dip your nails in super cold water (in a bowl or your sink) for three to five minutes to help them harden on the hurry.

    Go for the glow

    In the heart of winter, the perfect flush is equal parts pink, bronze and peach—all at once. This multi-tasker is the key. Swipe a blush brush over all three sections, then blend in a circle on the back of your hand before swiping on the apples of your cheeks.

    Pucker up, pretty

    Here’s a classic: the crimson lip. Some beauty babes use it on the daily as a signature look—but if you’re a newbie to this hue, V-Day is the perf day to rock red for the first time. Our pick from MAC is an all-time favorite. Too much? Try a slightly sheer cherry gloss. And here’s the rule to remember: Keep the rest of your makeup minimal.

    Spritz on a sweet scent

    A signature scent makes you feel pretty, powerful and pulled together—plus, your date will find it pretty irresistible. Our pick: Something fresh, fruity and floral, like XOXO Luv (it has notes of pink grapefruit and peony—amazing).
