All the 90s trends are making a comeback this year, so don’t worry you won’t look outdated with a glossy pink shade on your lips. Light pink shades have this magic of making you look younger and go well with Valentine’s day theme. While you are at it, dab some on your eyelid to recreate the glossy lids trend.
