Nude lipsticks are pretty versatile, and they look awesome whether you're wearing a full face or simply dolled-up for the workday. Like the Little Black Dress, a flattering nude lip goes with practically anything—just add the right eye or cheek makeup to make sure that you won't look washed-out. Here are celebrity-inspired looks to help you use this makeup essential to its full potential:

1. Judy Ann Santos

Like Juday, opt for a moisturizing MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick for an effortless hint of shine.

2. Maja Salvador

Pair a matte lip with the most blinding highlighter in your collection for a subtle daytime glam.

3. Heart Evangelista

When you've spent more time than you should on winged liner, choose products that are easier to use for the rest of your face. A nude gloss, for example, would take only 10 seconds to apply even without a mirror.

4. Joyce Pring

If you aren't much of a gloss fan, topping your matte lipsticks with a lip balm achieves the same effect minus the sticky feeling.

5. Janine Gutierrez

Rose and peach colors aren't your only options for a barely-there pout. An earthy mauve actually falls within the nude spectrum, and if you have tanned skin, a muted version is a must-try.

6. Julia Barretto

On days when you're rushing out the door with only five minutes to do your face, make fuller brows and bolder lips your priority. You can hide those dark circles behind sunnies anyway.

7. Leila Alcasid

If you're sporting deeper tones for your eye makeup, going for a nude lip that's lighter than your natural lip color is totally okay. Just make sure it's not pale enough to be your concealer!

8. Jess Wilson

A "no-makeup" makeup look isn't complete without the perfect MLBB shade, especially if you're highlighting other parts of your face like your brows.


9. Kelsey Merritt

Wearing a warm, rosy nude over a bare face instantly wakes up the complexion. No foundation needed.

10. Kira Balinger

You might think a pastel pink lip will wash out pale skin, but as long as your brows and lashes are on point, it will actually bring your rosy complexion to life.
