Want to turn heads this Valentine’s Day, gals? Don’t wait for Cupid’s arrow to strike! Here are 7 easy ways to release your inner glam goddess!
Prominent pout: Nothing makes a face dazzle like a pop of bold lip color! Try a deep red that works for all skin types, such as Lancome’s Rouge Valentine ($25). More of a pink kinda gal? A bright rose shade is also a perfect attention-grabbing color.
Bold brows: For eyebrows, think big and bold! First, use a skinny brow pencil and create “feather-like” strokes that mimic your eyebrow hairs. Then, fill in the sparse areas with a brow powder to create a fuller look. (Eat your heart out, Brook Shields.)
Blushing beauty: Punch up your blush! A bright-cheeked look will tie in perfectly with your bold lips and brows. Apply a rosy color of choice directly to the apples of your cheeks. (Tip: a cream blush will create a fresh, “dewy” look.)
Bold liner: Get in touch with your inner Audrey Hepburn and try a dramatic cat-eye look! Use liquid liner and start at the corner of the eye. Draw a line working your way in toward the inner corner. (Tip: A felt tip liner, such as NYX’s Super Skinny Eye Marker ($9), is easiest to use when free-handing it.)
Amplified lashes: Give your thin lashes some assistance by adding falsies! False lashes will transform your puny eyelashes into thick, long, dramatic ones. Affix false lashes to clean eyes, and apply the rest of your makeup after the falsies have dried. Use an amplifying mascara to blend the fake lashes in with your real ones. Voila! You'll have lashes even Kim Kardashian would be jealous of.
Touchable tresses: No matter the hair length, touchably soft locks set the stage for stunning. Create soft, moveable hair by using a big-barreled curling iron, or hot rollers. Then, tousle hair with fingers and lightly spritz with hairspray.

Subtle shimmer: For the finishing beauty touch, apply a subtle shimmer powder to all the right places! Dust a bit across the bridge of your nose and on your cheeks. And if you’re going strapless, don’t be afraid to apply a bit to your chest and shoulders. It's an easy way to get your glow on!
