Speed up your beauty prep time

One of the newest offerings from Garnier, the Skin Renew 5 Sec Blur Instant Smoother works instantly to prime and smooth skin, evening out skin tone, lines, and reducing the appearance of pores... making the rest of your makeup application that much easier and leaving skin feeling baby soft.

$16.99 standard retail price

Be a blushing beauty on your date

Laura Geller Baked Heart Blush and Highlighter in Pink Valentine (which could not be more appropriately named) is an adorable duo of blush and highlighting powder to give you a rosy, natural glow. Perfect for date night!

$27.50 at Laura Geller

Invest in your beauty arsenal

Brushes are among the beauty tools you reach for the most that need some TLC. Consider investing in the MAKE UP FOR EVER 158 Double Ended Sculpting Brush for effortless application of your loose or compact powders. The angled side makes it even more convenient to sculpt your features and highlight your cheekbones with the incredibly soft bristles.

$53.00 at Sephora

Dress up in Herve Leger... without breaking the bank

Herve Leger by Max Azria is an iconic brand known for empowering women to look and feel their sexiest. Wow your date with this sultry blush number made accessible by Rent the Runway. The soft, romantic tone of this bandage dress will accentuate your curves in all the right places.

A Hint of Blush Sheath retails for $880, but you can score it for date night for a fraction of the price.

$125 at Rent the Runway

Bundle up in style this chilly V-Day

This Metallic Brocade Bomber Jacket from Daily Look is our way of taking inspiration from Bruno Mars' amazing custom Saint Laurent style from the Super Bowl (seriously). We love the playful but not too over-the-top animal print. Drape it over your dress to up the fierce factor during your night out.

$69.99 at Daily Look

Treat yourself to a crossbody you'll love the whole year

We are absolutely smitten with this Betsey Johnson Holiday Heart Crossbody in Fairy Dust Pink Multi. What's not to love? The sequin finish featuring a mix of gold and orchid (hello color of the year!) is the ultimate luxe color palette and the heart shape of the bag is an adorable way to pay homage to love -- and a love of style.

$68.00 at Macy's

Introduce your loved ones to a new way of wearing fragrances

You can literally carry a new favorite fragrance with you all day in the form of the new Kerala Ashok Garden Bracelet by Lisa Hoffman Beauty. This gorgeous, delicately crafted bracelet (made from purple glass beads) features a fragrance charm that holds fragrance beads of the brand's latest scent. Kerala Ashok has hints of Deep Violet, Ripe Pear, Velvety Apricot, and Sheer Jasmine to create a relaxing, super feminine fragrance.

This makes for an extremely thoughtful (jewelry and fragrance in one!) gift and would be a wonderful Valentine's Day surprise for a loved one like Mom or Sis.

$75.00 at Lisa Hoffman Beauty

Spend a romantic night in

Ooh lala. Valentine's Day doesn't always mean going out - for many couples, it's a nice, intimate night in that consists of cooking a meal together and spending quality time celebrating the relationship. Eminence Organics Mimosa Champagne Massage Oil is a delicious, natural blend of oils (including Apricot Kernel, Grape Seed, Orange, Sunflower Seed, Pomegranate, and Jojoba oils) that absorb into skin to provide hydration and nutrients. Suitable for all skin types (including those that are particularly dry). Spice up your V-Day plans with this sleek "champagne of massage oils," a stress-relieving massage, and your loved one.
