With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we think it’s time to get your lips in good condition, regardless of whether or not you have someone special to kiss. Lips, like the rest of your skin, should be treated properly. Healthy lips not only look good, but your favorite lip colors, especially lipsticks, will look and apply so much better on a smooth pout. Here are some of our lippie picks that get and keep those lips in soft, kiss-ready shape.


The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards are special in that it’s industry pros showing love for their peers. It’s a fun night we love to see that celebrates the talent and amazing work put on TV and film. We watch to see how our favorite actress will be wearing their hair and makeup, of course— take a look at our favorites of the night, and see if you agree.


penelope_cruz_2010sagawards.bmpPenelope Cruz didn’t really wow us at last week’s Golden Globes, but we were loving the soft, flowing hair and signature eye makeup at the SAG awards.


lea_michele_2010sagawards.bmpLea Michele made our list of picks once again with her strong brows and nude lip look. This time around, the Glee star wore her hair in a more casual way, opting for shiny, soft curls.


sandra_bullock_2010sagawards.bmpSandra Bullock wore her hair quite simple, but her skin looked amazing and her makeup was flawless. Shimmery pink shadow, beautifully smudged liner and glossy lip kept the award-winner looking radiant.


kate_hudson_2010sagawards.bmpIn more of a natural makeup look, Kate Hudson was stunning and couldn’t have looked better. We loved the soft texture of her updo that was the perfect compliment to her amazing backless gown.


mo'nique_2010sag.jpgMo’Nique wore her hair down with a soft flip and also chose a more natural makeup look, sticking to bronze tones that added the right amount of depth and definition to her face. The Precious star kept emphasis on her beautiful eyes with some false lashes and perfectly groomed brows.


diane_kruger_2010sagawards.bmpIn the sea of defined eyes and nude lips, Diane Kruger stood out with her bronzed eyes and red lips; her braided updo was a great compliment for her asymmetrical gown.


rutina_wesley_2010sagawards.jpgKohl-rimmed eyes and lots of lashes gave Rutina Wesley a much more glamorous, dolled-up look than True Blood fans are used to seeing. With her hair in a simple bun, her sparkling necklace lit up her face, complimenting bronze-toned cheeks and glossy lips.


kyra_sedgwick_2010sagawards.jpgKyra Sedgwick kept her makeup look shimmer-free and it worked beautifully. We loved the soft pink cheeks and lips that didn’t compete with her more dramatic eye makeup.
