Get out of your Winter rut with the excitement of February. From Valentine's Day date nights to New York Fashion Week's inspiring looks — and, of course, the Oscars — there are plenty of reasons to try out a new lipstick (or two!) and enjoy a little prettifying and pampering. Click on to see what our editors are buzzing about this month.
Premoistened wipes are a busy girl's staple — they're portable, fast, and easy. But what's a girl do when she has sensitive skin? Garnier is answering that question with its new Soothing Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($6). They do everything the original does, like remove your makeup and even waterproof mascaras without a drop of water, but without the irritating fragrances and dyes you can find in other towelettes. You can thank calming rose extract and vitamin E for that. Besides, having a more gentle cleansing option is a win in our book.
Spring is in the air, and while pastels, neons, and beachy waves are seasonal staples, the Spring 2013 runways gave natural hair and makeup new twists. Some are spins on a classic, like skin-tone nails, and others are a little more unexpected. Click through to see the trends you'll be dying to try this upcoming season.

Shay Mitchell knows how to keep a secret, but the Pretty Little Liars star was all for dishing her beauty must haves at Juicy Couture's latest fragrance launch. While she loves a good drugstore buy, she readily admits she enjoys a splurge or two. Plus, she divulged some interesting Pretty Little Liars spoilers for next week's episode and admitted which top model she envied as a child. On Kirbie: Vena Cava dress.
Lip-synching aside, Beyoncé is still one of the baddest vocalists around, and she proved her mettle as she belted the National Anthem at her Super Bowl press conference today — live. But it was her voluminous, side-swept curls and glitzy nail art that caught our eye. The songstress sported gold nail wraps with a chevron design. And it also seems she's the latest celebrity to try the current hair trend: over-the-shoulder waves. While others have gone for a more retro and relaxed style, Beyoncé's curls were highly defined and full-on body. She kept her makeup natural except for a pop of gold eyeliner on her bottom lids. Now with the inauguration drama settled, only one question remains: what surprises will her Super Bowl halftime show hold?
Cold weather means it's time to pull out your favorite headwear. But what makeup works best when you're wearing a brim? Fedora, floppy, or fascinator — whatever your choice of hat this season, find out how to play up your cosmetics palette to match.
Coy kiss: A bold hat deserves an equally bold makeup statement. Apply a bright lipstick shade like British radio and TV presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford to balance out the look. This works especially well with floppy hats that cascade over the eyes.
Casually capped: Mad Men actress Abigail Spencer decided to go for a more natural makeup palette with her brown fedora. However, the slight flush on cheeks and lips is the perfect look for a daytime event, while extralong lashes draw the eye upward.
Eye candy: It's instinct to stray from eye makeup when your face is hidden under a wide brim, but why not take that opportunity to show off your peek-a-boo style? Try a swipe of matching shadow in a winged-out style on the lids. Model Tali Lennox paired her plum fedora with dark purple shadows and nude gloss. This combination will complement, not conflict with, your headwear.
A character's hair and makeup play an integral part in making a film so memorable. The following ladies' movie personas have become part of the canon for romance, whether from decades of renown or more recent pop culture success. If you're searching for a definitively romantic look of your own this Valentine's Day, there's no better place to draw inspiration.
