For some of youusyou us, Valentine's Day may well be the kissiest day of the year, yes? So the last thing you want to wear is red lipstick. But what if you adore red lipstick?

What if your other half thinks a red lip is the sexiest makeup ever, even if he won't kiss you when you wear it? Such is the case with Maybelline New York artist Grace Lee, who says her husband loves her signature bright-red lip, but doesn't want to wear it himself.

To help with your red-lip+kissing conundrum, I polled some of my favourite makeup pros in the lip-lock know. For tips, tricks and recommendations from Kelly Meredith (she's worked with Sienna Miller), Diana Carreiro (she won't say re: famous faces), Vanessa Jarman (Lady Gaga), Grace Lee (Eva Longoria), Melissa Gibson (Evan Rachel Wood) and Andrea Claire (Lady Antebellum), check out my "Makeout-Friendly Red Lips" story at
