Here are a few quick tips to help you pamper and give yourself a self-care day before the big Valentine's Day event:
Moisturize your skin daily using a light, non-greasy moisturizer
Don’t be afraid to soak your fingers in rose water to nourish and give them an ‘at-home’ manicure look
Apply a hair mask to keep your hair conditioned
Give yourself a nice long bath
Surf the net for some DIY face masks to put on your face
Make sure you have the makeup you’ll be needing to put together your perfect Valentine's Day makeup. No one wants to go last-minute shopping on Valentine's Day
If you need a haircut or hair dye, be sure to do it a few weeks before Valentine's Day. This will give your hair enough time to grow and settle
How to Pick Your Makeup and Outfit
If you’re still conflicted and haven’t decided on what kind of look you want to go for, don’t worry. Here is some fresh inspiration to make sure you look your best on Valentine's Day.
Valentine's Day is all about festive colors such as red, pink, golden, and white. Incorporating these colors into your makeup in the form of red lipstick or golden shimmery eyeshadow can make your overall Valentine's Day look stand out.
Valentine's Day Outfits
Valentine's Day looks don’t necessarily have to be extravagant and formal. Give it a twist by turning to comfy pants and slim blouses.

Glitter and Shimmer
While plain and cozy Valentine's Day looks are popular these days, one can never go wrong with some glitter and shimmer.

Using shimmery eyeshadow in Valentine's Day pink colors and wearing eyelashes for extension
Applying a good amount of highlight on your cheekbones for an extra glow
Taking hair-friendly glitter spray and spraying it on various strands of your hair
