Other than every day, Valentine's Day is our favorite holiday for indulging in a red lip. So naturally we'd suggest taking your Valentine's Day look ten levels up a notch on the spice scale, and pairing whatever ensemble you have planned with a sexy red lipstick. One, because a simple swipe of red supplies instant confidence, and two, you'll have your date drooling before dessert even arrives. Like Audrey Hepburn said, there's a shade of red for every woman, so look to our favorite ladies of Instagram to find yours—powerful meets playful in these red pout and hair combinations.

Flaunt your neckline with an effortless updo, Marianna Hewitt style, and a scarlet lipstick to match your salsa dancing girl emoji dress.

Give your glass hair extra glow by pairing it with a succulent coral-colored lipstick.
Half-Up Mermaid Waves + Ruby Red
Black lace and mermaid locks are all the more sultry when they center around a rich ruby red.

An out-of-your-face hairstyle accentuates your eyes, cheekbones, and lips so push it back and put on a peachy red.
