With nearly 11 months of makeup-for-Zoom practice under your belt, Feb. 14 is really just another day of getting camera ready. But if you just so happen to be quarantined miles, states, or even oceans away from your valentine, the stakes will probably feel a bit different — and definitely a lot sexier. Luckily, we spotted three Valentine's Day beauty looks on Instagram that are Cupid- – and iPhone-camera — approved.

And if you're one of the lucky ones celebrating Valentine's Day in person, even better. The products used to create these looks, all from e.l.f. Cosmetics, are not only designed to pack a punch, but formulated to stay put . . . no matter where your date night takes you. Keep scrolling as we break each one down — including glowy pops of pink, a powerful combo of red lips and faux lashes, and a full face of glam for those who like to go bold.

Look #1: Pink Perfect

Bring on all-pink everything with this glowy monochromatic makeup that's surprisingly simple to achieve. Perfect for product minimalists and color fanatics alike, this gorgeous look puts similar shades of pink in all the right places, like your eyelids, cheeks, and lips.

How to: Set the stage with a layer of e.l.f. Cosmetics' cult-favorite Luminous Putty Primer ($8), a lightweight base layer that will keep things in place while providing that glow-from-within look. Then, add your favorite face products, like a brightening concealer and dewy foundation, topped off with the Halo Glow Setting Powder ($8). Finally, use the Monochromatic Multi Stick ($4) to cover your face in gorgeous, rosy tones, layering and blending to your heart's content. For extra oomph, douse your inner corners, the tip of your nose, and the center of your lips in a holographic highlighter.

Look #2: Classic Beauty

As TikTok would say, tell me you feel sexy without telling me you feel sexy. Makeup translation: bust out the red lips and faux lashes — and not much else in terms of products. This classic, ultrareliable beauty look is ideal for throwing on quickly, and it looks stunning from any camera angle.

How to: With this e.l.f. Cosmetics look, a clean base helps your eyes and lips pop, so start things off with a light face product, like the Camo CC Cream ($14). The built-in hydration and color-correcting formula will ensure your skin stays looking flawless, no matter how long your date or FaceTime lasts. On your eyes, let a wispy pair of Flirtatious Luxe Lashes ($4) be the main event. For your lips, the Liquid Matte Lipstick ($6) in a vibrant red color will do the trick perfectly.

Look #3: Bold in Brown

Feeling nostalgic for the good old days of executing a full face beat on a Saturday night? This is the e.l.f Cosmetics Valentine's Day look for you. Deep and dramatic, but still neutral, this all-brown beauty look will make you feel like a total 10.

How to: Full glam isn't complete without a little sculpting. Grab your favorite concealers — we love the affordable Hydrating Camo Concealer ($6) — in multiple shades to add dimension to your face, locking it in with a light setting powder. On your eyes, layer on a full spectrum of colors from a neutral shadow palette that has both shimmer and matte shades, like the Need It Nude Eyeshadow Palette ($10). Then, tie it all together with strong, defined eyebrows using the Instant Lift Brow Pencil ($2) and a nude lip that's several shades darker than your skin tone.
