Spruce up your look this Valentine's Day with some amazing and affordable beauty products!

To kick things off, you will need the new Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser ($6). To use, apply it to your clean skin before you apply foundation. This Pore Eraser actually works as a primer and creates a photo-quality finish. Think of it as Photoshop in a bottle.

Next, you will want to apply the lightweight POND's Luminous Finish BB+ Cream ($10) all over your face using your fingertips. This product offers the perfect amount of coverage and actually reduces the appearances of dark spots.

Now it's time to add a little color to your cheeks and lips with this lovely Maybelline New York Master Glaze ($8). This blush stick is available in six shades and is incredibly easy to use. To achieve a natural look, simply add a dot of color to each cheek and then blend it in using your finger tips. Sweep the color upward along your cheekbone toward your temple. Next, dab the blush stick on your lips, and blend it in using your finger. For a shiny finish, add a swipe of your favorite lip gloss.

Finish off your makeup with this Physicians Formula Mood & Glow Boosting Powder ($12). To apply, use a large blusher brush, and generously sweep it in a circular motion over the powder. Then, apply the powder all over your face. Use as little or as much as you want to create the glow you desire.

Next up is the eyes. One of the easiest eye shadows to use is from Wet n' Wild ($5). Not only are the colors beautiful, but the palette includes instructions, so you will know exactly where to apply the shades you're using.

Adding an extra touch of drama to your eyes is easy with a great eyeliner, and that's why this Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen ($12) is the perfect pick. This eyeliner is great for those of us who haven't mastered the fine art of liquid eyeliner. It comes in several colors and goes on soft and smooth.

If you don't have naturally lush lashes, you can add some volume using Physicians Formula Organic Fake Out Mascara ($9). This mascara works amazing well, and it's all natural. The only downside to going all natural is the small fact that it's not waterproof, so that means no crying!
