Kim Kardashian is known for wearing layer upon layer of makeup every time she steps out of the house. Her recent red carpet walk with nude-colored lips really made us take notice - the color is the same shiny shade of cream as her face! It's not the first time she's worn the look, either.
You have to admit: The look is a bit freaky at first glance, though some celebrities can rock it with ease. The key to creating the pleasing look is to find a nude lipstick that has a bit of color and matches your skintone, according to BellaSugar.com.
With lighter skin tones, avoid beige lipsticks, which will wash you out. Instead, look to soft pinks and peaches or pale apricot as your base shade," the website recommends. "If you have lots of golden undertones in your skin, go for creamy, caramel-toned nudes and warm beiges. Avoid anything too cool, like grays or silver-toned shades."
Olive-skinned gals can wear pretty much any shade of nude - lucky!
Does Kardashian have what it takes to pull off nude lips? We'll let you decide, but these other celebrities also like to go for a bit of the understated look.
"Glee" belter Lea Michele is known for playing with a lot of different looks - and she definitely loves nude lips. The actress wore Lancome's L'Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere to the 2012 Golden Globes, according to InStyle.
With Lea, I like to choose one of her features and emphasize it," makeup artist Melanie Inglessis told the magazine, adding that she wanted to do a dramatic eye for the awards show and kept the lips simple to match. "Matte lipsticks are very modern."
Singer and actress Jennifer Hudson keeps her makeup pretty simple - her gorgeous features don't need a lot of enhancing. One of her favorites is IMAN Cosmetics' Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Citron, her makeup artist said in 2010.
"The key to a nude lip is to begin by lining the lips with liner that is one shade darker than your natural lip color," makeup expert Sam Fine said.
"The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence opted to wear a nude lipstick to the worldwide premiere of the film. Her makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, told US Weekly that she might play a tomboy on the big screen, but in real life she loves to play with makeup.
To get the look, Dempsey said she applied Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Lip Stain in Coral Aquatique to the actress' lips and then added Ultra Color Rich Moisture Seduction by Avon in Nude Perfection to get the nude look.
