All My Children Star Rebecca Budig Dishes On How To Plant A Perfect Kiss

In her 10 year run playing character Greenlee Smythe on All My Children, Rebecca Budig has had quite a few on-screen beaus (including Josh Duhamel, with whom she was co-nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for America’s Favorite Couple in 2002) — so who better to turn to for kissing advice with the big New Year’s Eve midnight smooch approaching? Budig, who is married to former Bachelor Bob Guiney, was kind enough to give us the rundown on how she preps for puckering up. “For kissing, I like lipgloss. But not the sticky kind. The smell good, smooth kind!” she says, and cites Sephora and Kiehl’s as two of her favorites. In addition, Budig tipped us off to Ayur-medic Lip Enhancer, a vitamin-C infused gloss that “tastes good, and gives your lips a little color,” she says. To make the tint last, the Cincinnati native suggests using lip liner to fill in lips before applying gloss: “That way, once the gloss is gone, there is still color! And the liner tends to really stay which is why I use it all over.” The star also shares her obsession with Colgate Wisp, a miniature breath-freshening toothbrush. “I use that after meals, on the plane, before love scenes…it’s just very convenient and makes my mouth feel very clean!” And when asked her thoughts on the best on-screen kiss—hers or otherwise—the actress chooses wit over fairytale romance: “In The Jerk, when Steve Martin licks Bernadette Peter’s face. It always makes me laugh!” –Emily Hsieh
