Celebrity Makeup Spotlight: Soft Rosy Lips


At the premiere of upcoming movie Valentine’s Day, stars like Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel all looked gorgeous with lips painted in rosy hues. Read on to find your perfect shade and learn how to rock the look!

* According to makeup artist Bobbi Brown, the most flattering color is one or two shades darker than your natural lip color.

* On paler skins, try a cherry red like the one spotted on Anne Hathaway. Those with light to medium skin tones look great in colors with pink and coral undertones. Darker skin should stick with warm deep reds.

* On my MAC NC30 skin, I like MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipstick. It is the perfect rosy color for me and it goes on so creamy without drying my lips. Click here for a swatch of the color on my lips.

* Rosy hues are best paired with a clean face. Even out your skin with a tinted moisturizer, define the eyes with liner and mascara and add a swirl of blush on the cheeks for a healthy flush.
