The Exact Lipstick Shade You Should Wear on Valentine's Day (Plus a Flirty Lash Trick)

At last night's AAFCA awards, best-actress winner Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked gorgeous in the most kiss-me, romantic sort of way last night—how's this for Valentine's Day makeup inspiration?

That sweet strawberry lipstick color is just the right pick for a special date night, I think; as fun and flattering as a good red but infinitely more conducive to kisses (and less intimidating for guys!). Makeup artist Nick Barose used MAC Lipstick in One to Watch, a spring 2015 shade that's not on sale just yet. But I got him to suggest a dupe we can use in the meantime—MAC Pro Lipstick in Fusion Pink. He also threw in this extra tip for y'all: "For some extra flirt that's perfect for Valentine's Day, add feathery lashes that are longer on outer corners." On Mbatha-Raw, he used Eylure Lengthening Lashes #118.

Would you wear this lipstick on Valentine's Day, or do you think you'll go for a whole different sort of makeup scheme? Sexy smoky eyes, perhaps?
