With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, finding a perfectly, crush-worthy look – is probably ranking #1 on to-do lists everywhere. After all, whether you’re prepping for a night on the town, or a laid-back Netflix night – why not look stunning? We thought we’d get the love-fest started by sharing some of the hottest V-Day looks making hearts throb this year!
Riding romantic waves – Nothing screams romance more than tousled, side-swept waves. And it’s not a hard look to pull off if you have some natural wave to your hair. Blow-dry with a large round brush after applying a bit of volume spray, sweeping it to the side. Make some waves in super-straight hair with the help of a curling iron and a spritz of hair spray.
Extra-smoky eye – Let’s face it, if you’re going to be gazing into your sweetie’s eyes – make sure yours are popping! The smoldering smoky eye is classic and also current. Apply black eyeliner to your top and bottom lid, followed by a blend of shadows that pair well with your eye color. Green eyes look gorgeous with gray/plum, brown eyes with blue/gray, and blue eyes pop with gold/copper shadow blends.
Racy red lips – It’s never cliché to sport the reddest of red lips – no matter what the occasion is. But somehow it feels especially right on V-Day. Whether you choose glossy and shimmering or a bold matte – you simply can’t go wrong with red.
Silky and sleek – Not to be outdone by romantic waves, straight, sleekly styled hair is glamorous accessory to any V-Day look. Use a good heat spray to protect your hair and blow dry in sections with a round brush. Finish with a once over from your trusty flat-iron for a super-smooth finish.
Romantically braided bun – A loosely piled up-do is a great addition to the perfect LBD. But weave in some braids to your bun and get ready to channel your inner medieval princess.
