This Low-Maintenance Lip Color Is the Only Thing Celebrities Are Wearing

Say the words "Hollywood" and "lipstick" in the same sentence, and what color comes to mind? For us, it's a glamorous true red. As far as red carpet makeup is concerned, movie stars and musicians often take the advantage of the drama and romanticism of the event and go full glam with a red or berry lip. Just look at this year's Golden Globe Awards for proof: Everyone from Zoë Kravitz to Jessica Chastain was seen in a statement-making red lip.

But recently, it seems as though celebrities are over high-maintenance lip colors. The Billboard Music Awards aired tonight, and there was scarcely a red or berry lip in sight. Whether it's because we're nearing summertime (a season that calls for "effortless" beauty) or because Hollywood is simply fatigued after months of award shows (and the intense makeup that comes with them), nude-colored lips were the look of the evening. There's no denying that a nude lip, whether it's matte or glossy, is easier to wear and touch up throughout the night than its bolder counterpart.

If Hollywood says nude lips are glamorous again, we are fully in support. Keep scrolling to see the nude lip looks we loved most on this year's Billboard Music Awards red carpet.
