Trend Alert: Nude, Matte Lips

Trend Alert: Nude, Matte Lips at the Emmys

On the red carpet last night, tons of celebrities played down their makeup, especially lips. As usual, there were lots of soft pinks and shimmers, but the dominant trend was nude, matte lips. Whether part of an understated look designed to let a dress or jewelry shine through, like Ginnifer Goodwin and Kristin Chenoweth, or as a soft foil to dramatic eyes, like Kim Kardashian and Mila Kunis, the matte lip is a sexy, subtle way to keep a dramatic look from being overdone. What do you think of a matte nude?

My lips are large so I'm usually trying to downplay them. I've been looking for a good matte nude lipstick.

Apparently, Kristen Chenowith had a really bad migraine at the Emmys, maybe those bulging veins are a result of that? Scary though, very freaky, she really looks like she should lay down(which they said she did later) or her head will explode a la "Scanners"!

I really don't like this look, it makes you look dead. A shimmery nude would be fine. I've never been a fan of matte lips anyway.
