Beauty Trend Report: Get These Gorgeous, Kissable Pink Glosses – Just In Time For Valentine's Day!

Get in on one the hottest red carpet trends for your own big movie star kiss moment (like Rob and K-Stew) on February 14th!

Everyone wants that “big movie kiss” moment – the one where everything is perfect down to your gorgeous lips. Well, one of the biggest red carpet trends is perfect for your big movie kiss moment this Valentine’s Day – pink lip gloss! Which one should you choose for your own big Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart lip lock? Read on for tips!

First of all, pink lip gloss is one of the most feminine, lovely ways to catch someone eyes. If red lips can catch a man’s eye from across the room, think of pink lip as the way to get them to kiss you. Red draws them to you, pink keeps them there.

How do you best work this come-hither color? It depends on your skin tone. Here’s a really quick guide I would suggest:

Pale skin tones look pretty in anything with a blue undertone from ice pink to dark fuschia. Avoid colors with a brown or slightly ruddy undertone, like mauves and wear coral colors with a little self-tanner so they don’t wash you out.

Medium/Olive skin tones should look for pinks with a golden undertone. Stay away from icy pink colors and avoid too much blue or purple undertones. How will you know if that happens? It will make your skin look sort of grey and lifeless.

Dark skin tones should look that have a touch of lavender, purple or brown as a base. Spicy berry pinks always look lovely and dark rose colors always look pretty. You should stay away from anything that has a white undertone. Chalk undertones against ethnic skin also creates the same problem as the medium/olive girls have – it will make your skin look ashy and grey.

The universal pink glosses? Smashbox O-Gloss and mark. Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. Both contain technology that allows the gloss to customize itself to the perfect pink for you and you alone. You can’t miss with those glosses, girls!

Pucker up, BFF! Valentine’s Day is coming and you’ll want the perfect lips to go along with that big Hollywood kiss!

Stay beautiful, BFFs!
