It’s not just Valentine’s Day that has us hooked on pink hues. The decidedly feminine shade showed up on many Spring 2013 runways, from barely-there lips at Michael Kors to neon-rimmed eyes at Donna Karan and brilliant fuchsia lips at Dries Van Noten and Oscar de la Renta. If you’re looking to sport a romantic look this month, take your pick from our roundup of sweet pinks:
Brighten up your eyes with the BY TERRY Crayon Khol Terrybly in Opaline Flash (pictured, top). The pearlescent pink liner glides on without pulling at the delicate skin around the eyes. (Tip: Line inside the lower rim all the way to the inner corner for extra glamour.)
