Whether you love Valentine's Day or loathe it, one thing everyone can agree on is that the holiday's official color is an amazing makeup shade.  When the holiday comes around each year, it might make you feel more inclined to dip into rosy pink blush or fuchsia lipstick, but pink is a makeup staple that's not only just downright gorgeous, it's extremely versatile. Need examples? If bold eye makeup is your vibe, Rachel Brosnahan's fuchsia eyeshadow is a cool alternative to a charcoal smoky eye, and Nathalie Emmanuael's allover rosy glow is an ideal look for anyone who likes to keep things soft and subtle.  From magenta to dusty rose, the countless possibilities are exactly why pink makeup is always a good idea — all 365 days of the year. Here, we've rounded up eight ways to wear pink makeup straight from the red carpet.

If you're deciding on a new signature haircut, it can be overwhelming (not to mention difficult) to know what's the best style to enhance your face shape and hair texture. However, oval face shapes are exempt from this struggle. "Oval face shapes are actually the lucky ones. They have the most the opportunity to play with the versatility and variations of haircuts; whether it's with the texture, or more importantly, with the shape and style in general," says Rodney Cutler, founder of Cutler Salon. "If you have an oval face shape, you can get away with any haircut and any style you want," says Luis Rodriguez, Clairol Professional Top Artist. "I love doing pixie cuts on someone with an oval face shape."  Whether you want to keep your length or go shorter, we turned to the red carpet for inspiration for your next cut. Here, we've rounded up the best celebrity haircuts for oval faces.

The days are cooler and the sun sets earlier. So now that we're in the midst of winter, your nail polish lineup probably reflects how you're feeling this season: dark and moody. Let's face it, you can never go wrong with a basic black lacquer, but sometimes you might have the urge to step out of your manicure comfort zone. "Dark polish hues are moody and sophisticated, not only do they give your manicure a little edge, they are truly flattering on all nail lengths and shapes," says celebrity manicurist Rachel Messick. When selecting a dark hue, you can't go wrong if you stay in the lush jewel-toned family. Deep evergreens, burgundies, plums, blues, and chocolate hues are universally flattering without the starkness of solid black (although that looks great too!). If you fancy reaching for a deep, rich, seasonally-appropriate shade, the following 14 nail polishes will have your manicures covered for the rest of the season.

It's not easy celebrating St. Patrick's Day when you hate wearing green. Alternatively, you can get festive this year by wearing the color on your face. It probably seems like green makeup would be tougher than wearing the color from head-to-toe, but depending on how it's applied, it can be a gorgeous eye makeup shade. If you need proof or inspiration, the red carpet is a good place to start. Some of Hollywood's biggest stars like Selena Gomez and Naomi Campbell have given their black eyeliners and charcoal eyeshadows a break to try cool emerald cat eyes and turquoise smoky eyes instead. Your plans for March 17th might end up being last minute, but how you're going to incorporate green into your look doesn't have to be. Here, we have five celebrity-approved green makeup looks to wear on St. Patrick's Day. RELATED: 10 Subtle St. Patrick's Day Manicure Ideas
