I’m in such a lovey mood today, despite severe deadlines, temperatures and global issues. Sometimes you just get bitten by the love bug and become all Velveeta cheesiness and gooey sentiment. I can’t stop dreaming about clichéd Valentines, squishy hugs and good old-fashioned smoochin’! And naturally, the latter makes me think of lipstick.

Looking gorgeous doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money. Just ask Francia Raisa, whose favorite products come from moderately priced cosmetic lines she can find at the drugstore.
"I really like Neutrogena for skin care and CoverGirl makeup," says the Secret Life of the American Teenager star. "I can’t stand heavy makeup. I feel like my skin can’t breathe, and CoverGirl is really light."

It appears the Latina songstresses and starlets that walked the red carpet at last night’s Grammy Awards all eschewed any amount of lip color and overdosed on eyeliner! From the bold façade of Jennifer Lopez to the demurely done-up Nicole Richie, lets see how these stars gave face.

I was watching the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, and absolutely fell in love with Christina Aguilera’s soft new look. I love the shiny short bob, I love the color, I love the subtle mauve makeup! But, I’ve also loved Christina’s various beauty incarnations throughout the decade, and admired her fearless attitude toward self-expression through hair and makeup. I’m in a festive mood today, people, so why don’t we take a look back at her various personas in celebration of her overall fabulousness?

These three Latinas know there’s more to lipstick than red or nude. Mauve is a sexy way to go, whether it’s worn sheer, matte or glossy. It brings a beautiful flush to the skin, without coming on too strong. If you love the look, try Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Heather Mauve ($22, bluemercury.com).

For Colombian beauty Paula Garces, getting gorgeous for a red carpet event takes plenty of preparation. “I don’t go on a liquid diet like some actresses do, but I definitely drink a lot of water two days before to flush the system, and I get lots of rest. And I moisturize day and night.”

I just can’t deal. Maybe it’s because these cosmetics aren’t aimed at me, or rather at my age demographic, but I cannot stomach another gimmicky play for my hard earned dollars that comes in the form of cosmetics. Let me explain: I loved the literary Twilight Saga (Team Edward), but the Twilight Beauty makeup collection (twilightbeauty.com)? Seriously? Yes, I’m sure the Immortal Liquid Body Shimmer ($19) will make my skin sparkle like a Cullen in sunlight, as would dozens of other glimmery body serums.
