Both Full Moon wo Sagashite and Skip Beat revolve around a similar setting - showbiz. While Full Moon revolves more around the musicbiz and Skip Beat focuses more on the acting side of the industry, they both revolve mostly around the production side of the industry.
While the characters are totally opposite in nature (Kyoko beeing consumed and driven by hatred, while Mitsuki is more like a friend to everyone), they are still quite similar. The main character in both series is a newbie on the showbiz world who doesn't quite know the tricks of the trade. Yet their untaintable hearts remain unaffected by the hardships of the industry. Both characters are what some might call Geniouses (Tensai) - fast learning, quickly evolving and vastly better than most.
Both anime deal with what it takes to get to the top in the entertainment industry: booking gigs, doing commercials, modeling, and learning to deal with your rivals, while holding on to your dream. Both have alot of romance thrown in and some comedy. While the ages, looks, and personalities of the two main characters are quite different, both give an inside look at showbiz from the ground up.
It's kinda the same thing :D Normal girl gets the chance to do auditions... She gets what she wants but something is in her way...

Kirarin revolution and Skip Beat! are both about girls getting into the famous world because of boys. Both girls have their own way of doing things.
Skip Beat! is like Kirarin Revolution just as Kirarin Revolution is like Skip Beat! in many ways . Kyoko and Kirarin both enters the world of showbiz. They meet a coulpe of men who are totally unpredictable. Although Kirarin Reolution had 100+ episodes, I'm telling you, you will not stop watching it. Like skip beat, you want to watch the series even though there are no episodes left. If you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.

When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Upbeat and optimistic heroine? Check.
Tsundere male lead? Check.
Endless moments of "Just kiss her already!" ? CHECK!
Though these two series end up in very different directions, I think with such a similar set-up it would be difficult to enjoy one and not the other. Check it out!
Both have an very upbeat and persistant protagonist that will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Both of the male leads are very handsom, sought out men that refuse to show their feelings for the protagonist, even to the point of being pretty mean to them.
Other than that, the animation is pretty similar, and they both have a similar overall feel. I am honestly shocked that more people haven't made this recommendation yet.
