I honestly can’t imagine putting my face and style out there every day, like the fashion influencers do. I can barely put make up on, and my hair never leaves its ponytail. But it’s their business to look good and show you how you can too, and they’re great at it.

We asked several QC instagram influencers to share with us their picks for Beauty this month, to help us gear up for the annual date night to end all date nights. Please check out the products they recommend below, and click through to buy.

Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara

This mascara seriously changed my life. It is hands down the best mascara I’ve ever used, and is by far my most-used beauty product to date. It makes your lashes look plump and voluminous. I get asked all the time if my lashes are fake when I’m wearing it!

Urban Decay – All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

I’ve used this setting spray for as long as I can remember. My makeup look isn’t complete without it! Mist this product over your finished makeup look, and it will set your products in place for up to 16 hours. 

Armani Beauty – Luminous Silk Foundation

I’ve been using this foundation for the past couple of years now and I absolutely love it. With medium, buildable coverage, this product gives your skin the most flawless, airbrushed look. Your complexion will be looking amazing for your Valentine’s Day selfie!

Chanel – Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Parfum

I’ve used this fragrance since college. A little bit goes a long way, so you only need one spray to last you the whole night. This perfume is both floral and fruity, so it’s perfect for date night or girls night out with your Galentines.

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Floral Eau de Parfum

What could be more romantic than the city of love? This floral, feminine and sensual perfume has been one of my top favorites for date night because it reminds me of Paris and all the romance it represents.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette

This palette has shades varying from deep pink and berry to taupe and ivory. It offers a mix of mattes, metallics and shimmer so you can be as neutral or as bold as you’d like.

Ruby Woo Retro Matte Lipstick by MAC

Wearing a red lip makes any woman feel confident and energized. But it can be difficult and overwhelming trying to figure out which shade of red is perfect for you. Look no further because Ruby Woo is the perfect shade of red that works with ANY skin tone. And trust me, its worth it! (editor’s note ~ must be, since Ashlen picked it as one of her faves as well!!)

Jan says “All of these products are great not only for Valentine’s Day or a special night out but if you’re like me I believe in treating every day like it is ‘special’.”

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick  

Caviar Sticks are perfect for a glam look or everyday look and have staying power.  And they come in a number of beautiful shades.

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder  

This translucent setting powder is light and I always make sure to use it when I want to set my makeup for a night out or if I am shooting photo’s.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Best Concealer on the market!  I do make sure to use plenty of moisturizer with mine.  

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Body Oil

This special sent is perfect for Valentine’s but I wear it everyday. Pick one or the other or layer them both.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Eau de Parfum

Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer

I always finish my hair with this tool for a perfectly, smooth blowout for a special night out with the Hubby!
