You’re Welcome—Valentine’s Day Beauty Inspo That Goes Beyond Red Lipstick

January felt like an entire year and February is finally on the horizon—a major feat if you ask us. There’s much to be considered during the shortest month of the year, but more often than not, Valentine’s Day hair and makeup ideas are something that has probably crossed your mind. If not, social media has already reminded you and now, you either could care less or are making plans to woo or be wooed.

If you’re part of the latter, that may include stepping out of the house and doing anything from a fancy dinner with your special someone to a night out with your other single friends. Regardless of where you’re headed, a face beat to the gawds or hair snatched into a camera-ready ‘do never hurt. To be honest, we’re all for getting dolled up any day of the week, including holidays.

This one is practically synonymous with red lipstick and well, not much else. (Personally, I’ve always been more of a gloss girl. My favorite is still Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb.) So instead of sticking to the status quo, we’ve got some seriously stunning inspo that go beyond the basics. From micro-braids tied into a glittery bow to blended-out red eyeshadow, here are some hair and makeup combos we’re this close to trying ourselves.

Line ‘Em Up

Take a cue from Bella Hadid at Prabal Gurung’s fall 2019 show and serve up sooty boudoir eyes from waterline to lid. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral, so the liner really pops.

Tie It With a Bow

If you’re leaving your makeup neutral like Zoe Kravitz and would rather put more effort—but not too much effort—into your hair, a blinged-out hair bow gets the job done in seconds.

Stunning Shimmer

We can’t think of a better combo than foiled, silver eyeshadow surrounding a set of brilliant brown eyes. Combined with a glossy lip and few coats of mascara and you’re as good as gold.

Understated Under-Liner

Effortless may just be a pipe dream, but you’ll get pretty close if you throw your hair into some pigtails like Janelle Monae and opt for under-liner, which can be as attention-grabbing as a face full of makeup.

“Effortless” Ponytail

There’s a wide spectrum of effortless, I-woke-up-like-this ponytails out there, but one of our faves is the one that houses lived-in beach waves, like this one on Olivia Munn.

Though we’re always enamored with Lady Gaga’s makeup, there’s no denying the can’t-look-away appeal of this low bun, which resembles the type of flowers you’d get in a Valentine’s Day bouquet.
