Valentine’s Day is one of the most special days of the year. And if you’ve got a date night planned with a special someone, chances are you want to look and feel your absolute best. Of course, finding the right outfit is important—should you take your favorite, flattering LBD out of the back of your closet or should you shop for something sparkly and new? Whatever you choose, we’re sure you’ll look amazing! You might also be wondering how you should do your hair and makeup for a night out with your significant other. From creating soft curls or beachy waves to making sure your skin looks all glow-y to wearing the perfect lipstick, Valentine’s Day is all about going for a romantic vibe that will make you feel your most confident. Ready to have the best date night ever? Follow these beauty tips for gorgeous skin, makeup, and hair!

beauty tip #1: MAKE SURE YOUR SKIN IS HYDRATED

The first step in your date night prep routine? A flawless-looking complexion, of course! Moisture is key for glowing skin, so don’t skimp on applying a moisturizer before moving onto makeup. Look for one that’s formulated for your specific skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are all formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Smooth your moisturizer of choice on post-cleansing.

beauty tip #2: ROCK A RED LIP

It’s time to pucker up! Does anything scream Valentine’s Day quite like a classic red lip? Seriously, red is the color of love. Don this gorgeous shade on your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly in Love. Before applying lipstick, exfoliate your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub to slough off any dead skin cells, then use a lip primer to create a smooth canvas to help apply color evenly. Finally, outline your lips with a matching lip liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner in In-Matte-Uated With You, then fill your lips in with color. Keep the rest of your makeup simple (think: lightweight foundation, black eyeliner, and volumizing mascara) so that all the focus is on your stunning pout. And of course, after the night is over remember to take your makeup off. You don’t want to go to sleep with makeup on your face—it can mix with the dirt and oil that’s been building up on your skin throughout the day and this can lead to clogged pores. Use a gentle facial cleanser, like micellar water, to wipe your foundation, mascara, and lipstick off.

beauty tip #3: create romantic waves

On Valentine’s Day, it’s all about wearing your hair in a soft, loose hair style that gives off a romantic vibe. One of our favorite Valentine’s Day hairstyles would have to be beachy waves—and the good news is, this is one look that’s easy to create. After washing your hair, spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto damp strands, then braid your hair. Once your hair has dried, undo the braid and shake out your hair for effortless date night waves.  

beauty tip #4: COVER UP YOUR GRAY ROOTS

Are you stressing about finding the time to color those gray roots that are starting to grow in? Relax! Use a temporary root cover up spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up. This lightweight temporary cover up spray dries quickly and lasts one shampoo. It’s available in blonde, red, brown, and black shades, so pick the one that’s closest to your hair color. To use, first shake the can well. Hold it 4-6 inches away from your hair and spray it directly onto new growth and lightly through the rest of your hair to blend in the color.
