13 Sexy Makeup and Hair Ideas to Try This Valentine's Day

Securing a great Valentine's Day gift for your significant other, your Galentine, or yourself is right up there in importance as finding the perfect beauty look to celebrate the holiday. You want to nail down your hair and makeup look so you can feel like your sexiest, most fierce self.

A bold red lip and cat eye have been Valentine's Day staples forever, but there are so many different ways you can take your glam for Feb. 14. You can keep your makeup soft and romantic with all neutral tones, electric and flirty with neon hues and graphic shapes, or stick to the classics and amp up the glam. The only requirement is a smudge-proof lipstick, just in case.

After your makeup is decided it's time to figure out your hairstyle (and your nails, and your outfit). Depending on your dedication to Cupid's holiday you incorporate heart-shaped clips or go all out with pink hair. It's up to you, but our philosophy is the bigger the better.
