Whether you plan on spending Feb. 14 at a romantic, candlelit dinner date, with your best friends (virtually), or on your couch with Ben & Jerry, a festive beauty beat is always a good way to celebrate the Hallmark holiday. If you're considering a special Valentine's Day look but don't have time to scour the internet for last-minute inspo, don't worry, because endless Valentine's Day looks await you. Trust me, you'll trigger the heart eyes Emoji reaction in anyone who sees you with these Valentine's Day makeup looks.
Your mind likely defaults to a bright red lip exclusively when you think about Valentine's Day beauty. And that's an undeniably, foolproof look.

If you're down for that, I've rounded up a mix of beauty looks that include all of those things, as well as ombre lips, multi-toned eye looks, lots of pink, and yes, even heart-shaped glitter.
Ahead, prepare to fall in love with the 10 Valentine's Day makeup looks that will definitely make your crush post a million heart eye Emojis under your selfie.
