With only a few days left before the 14th, we bet you’ve already got the outfit, makeup, and hair look all planned out for that special day. But because life is life, suddenly many things that require your immediate attention are taking up your time — it doesn’t help that the most romantic day of the year lands on a Tuesday this year — causing you to only have a few minutes left to spare before that romantic night out with your significant other.
So if you have to get “pretty in a jiffy” for Valentine’s Day, keep reading for five tips that will help you look polished and gorgeous in a short amount of time.
Use a wave or texturising spray
No time for a shower? No problem. To get your tresses ready for date night, simply spray on a ton of wave or texturising hair spray. This will give your locks volume, grit, and texture for that sexy, effortless look.
Go for double-duty makeup
Foundations that can be built up to conceal dark circles, lipsticks that can work as blush too, and an eyeshadow that will work as a contouring product — keep your makeup process quick and fast by sticking to double-duty makeup products. But of course, you should never forget your brows and lashes, too.
Put on a dress
A dress is the easiest look to wear on Valentine’s Day as it styles itself. Whether you go for something bold and unique or something elegant and sophisticated, you’ll still look beautiful. And the best part: it’s only one item of clothing, so you don't need to spend minutes trying to piece together a complete ensemble.
Freshen up your perfume
Spending eight hours or more at the office can completely erase any scent of your fragrance. So before heading out to your date, make sure to spritz on your go-to perfume. That way, you’ll feel and smell fresh all night long.
Switch from flats to chunky heels
Thank goodness that chunky heels are having a moment right now because these trendy heels give you that extra height and glamour without hurting or pinching your feet. They will allow you to walk comfortably with your boo however long you like.
