Planning a night out for Valentine’s Day this year?  Planning a night in?  Even better!  Whether you are headed out for a night on the town or a cozy dinner date at home, you will certainly want to look your sexiest.  Check out my 6 steps to being a true valentine beauty on February 14th!

Too Faced Eye Shadow

Eyes:  Start with the eyes and create an ultra-sexy smokey eye.  It can be done with a light hand or with extra oomph, you decide.  My favorite palette right now is the Boudoir Eyes Shadow Collection from Too Faced, instant bedroom eyes!  Too Faced, $36.00

Blush:  After applying your favorite foundation, get the absolute perfect flush to your cheeks with another personal favorite, NARS Orgasm Blush.  I think the name says it all! NARS Cosmetics, $28.00

Highlighter:  One step I cannot stress enough is highlighting!  Adding a highlighting product to your cheekbones and brow bone is my secret weapon in beauty.  You can do this before or after foundation.  It leaves you with a radiance and a real “finished” look.  For Valentine’s Day, try All Over Seduction from Edward Bess, add this cream highlighter to your cheekbones, eyes, and even lips.  Sephora, $38.00

Lips:  When focusing on the eyes for drama, keep the lips in a perfect pink-nude.  Try Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Uber Pink, a universally flattering shade and very moisturizing on the lips. Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, $24.00

Body:  After moisturizing with your favorite lotion, enhance and hydrate your arms, legs, and decollete with Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF20.  Your skin will look younger, brighter, and with a touch of added color much-needed in the winter months.  Unlike self-tanners, MST Body leaves no streaks, does not transfer to clothing, yet washes off easily in the shower.  Yes, it is a miracle product! Miracle Skin Transformer, $34.00

Hair:  No matter what style you typically wear, curly or straight, this Valentine’s Day go for sexy, bed-head.  It is low maintenance and just HOT!  Try a spray like Charlotte Ronson’s A Perfect Mess.  Spritz it on damp hair, air dry, then style it messy.  It’s super easy and will look effortless. Sephora.com, $20.00

Just add your favorite “hot date” outfit to this little beauty routine and I am betting you will have a Valentine’s Day to remember!

What are YOUR plan this February 14th?
