Nude Lips: Who In Hollywood Is Doing Them Right

Posted on


We’re well-documented fans of bright lipstick around the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices, but we’re also suckers for a well-executed nude lip. When done right, it’s a perfectly polished and sophisticated look that works as well for day as it does for night.

From left, Julianne Hough, Lily Collins and Michelle Williams each display subtle variations on the ideal nude lip. Hough’s is just-bitten with a peachy glow to go with her bombshell eye makeup; Collins’s is more high-fashion, with a mod matte finish to go with her thick liquid liner; and Williams rocks a great-for-everyday glossy shine for a sunny girl-next-door feel.

Want to add this lovely lip look to your repertoire? For Hough’s look, try NARS “Honolulu Honey”; for Collins, Tom Ford’s “Blush Nude” is a good match; and for Williams, a highly tinted lipgloss like MAC Lipglass in “Myth” works well.

Tell us: What’s your go-to nude lip color?
