8 Red Carpet Lipstick Hues to Inspire Your Valentine’s Day Beauty

Whether you’re going on a romantic date with your soulmate or having a girl’s night out, your Valentine’s Day pout has to be perfect.

First, you have to select the shade that pairs well with your skin-tone and ensemble—a hue that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Then, you’ll need a formula that will stay put with minimal upkeep. There are a few things we’re trying to avoid here: Getting lipstick all over yourself (teeth, face, etc) and getting lipstick all over your date.

These requirements are also essential for the red carpet. While celebs like Jessica Biel have glam squads to ensure their pouts are perfect, finding the best shade and product is the priority. This is why we went through the Best Beauty of this year’s award season to find the lipsticks for the romantic holiday.

There are also a few tips we’ve learned from the sidelines of the carpet that will make your pucker pop. For example, lip liner is important for a long-lasting pout. It keeps lipstick from feathering (Read: Going beyond your lip line) and amps up the pigment. Next, a liquid lipstick or lip stain will stay put all night long and minimize bleeding, so you can feel confident when there’s no mirror around.
