Craving a fresh lip color? Have a spring fling with fuchsia, like Entourage star Dania Ramirez did in sunny Vegas this past weekend. The best part of the look: with lips this bright, there’s no need to load on eye makeup or wear accessories.  

To get a pop of pink as intense as Dania’s, try a full-coverage lipstick like YSL Pure Lipstick in Fuchsia Pink, $30, sephora.com or layer CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Enchantress, $7, drugstore.com, with CoverGirl ShineBlast in Heat, $6.49, drugstore.com

By Kate Sandoval | 04/27/2011 - 14:45

If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from our Xtina, it’s her classic, fire-engine red mouth—and she didn’t stray from that signature look on the premiere of The Voice last night.

For our last day of Afro-Latina week, we’re obsessing over Heather Hemmens’s pretty makeup from her appearance at OK! magazine’s Hollywood’s Sexiest Singles event. It’s the perfect look for a sexy summer night out—and the shades will look great on every Afro-Latina skin tone!

So often foundations made for darker skin tones look too red on Afro-Latinas, and the foundations made for lighter skin tones look too gray or yellow.
