Go Nude This Summer!

Cameron Diaz looked tanned and lovely at a recent Good Morning America appearance (and I'm dying to see her new movie Knight and Day, by the way).

Cam's a true master of seemingly effortless beauty, and a key part of her look here was a nude lip.

Nude lips are BIG with celebrities this summer, but don't make the mistake of thinking these lovely ladies are forgoing the lipstick altogether ...

Instead, they've found the perfect "shadeless" shade to make their lips look healthy and natural.

Here are some nude lipsticks recommended by celebrity stylists and makeup artists ...

 

Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact (Sephora, $46) is expensive, but customers rave about the color. Check out this review from Temptalia.com -- it has me dying to try it!

 

NARS Honolulu HoneyInStyle magazine promises a "warm, polished finish" from NARS Satin Lipstick in Honolulu Honey (Barneys, $24).

 

Smashbox Photo Finish in Splendid (Beauty.com, $22) provides just the barest bit of pink for your lips. Perfect for summer, don't you think?

 

Shu UemeraThis Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in BG 940M (shu uemura, $23) gets high marks from Ciara's makeup artist (here's a picture of Ciara wearing it).

 

I can't wait to try out one or two of these lipsticks, but I'll admit the prices are higher than I'd like to spend. Also? I've tried more nude lipsticks than I can count and still haven't found the right one. Instead, I've been applying M.A.C. lip pencil in Spice (MACCosmetics.com, $13) -- too dark for me on its own -- and counterbalancing it with GLAZEWEAR Summer Sheers Lip Gloss (Avon, $2.99 on sale!). I love the effect, but I'd be happier if I had a one-step lipstick to give me the same look.

Do you have a nude lipstick, pencil, or gloss you love? Tell us about it in the comments!
