The Pink Glove Dance on YouTube has been getting a serious following since its posting in November. The video features the staff of the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, all wearing pink surgical gloves to raise breast cancer awareness.

While the rest of us who don't work in a hospital may not be able to copy this trend, there are plenty of ways to add some pink to your look.

One easy way to show your support on your hands is to get the breast cancer ribbon nail decal. This was a popular trend during October, the breast cancer awareness month, and can be carried on throughout the year.

For a more subtle approach, simply apply some pink eye shadow or lip gloss, that way you can state your cause but still look natural.

Several cosmetics companies offer a pink shade with proceeds going towards breast cancer research. LORAC's Perfectly Pink blush shade goes towards the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.

These are just some ways of adding pink to your daily look.ADNFCR-2773-ID-19494392-ADNFCR
