Last night at the Whitney Art Party, Kate Bosworth's natural beauty shone through with a low-profile look that featured a pretty petal pink lip color. "The inspiration for Kate's look was clean with a note of sexy," makeup artist Molly Stern said. "We wanted her vibe to be effortless with a hint of cool." And surprisingly, a hot pink lipstick was used to create Kate's subtle shade.

First, Stern applied Nars Lipstick in Tzigane ($24) as a base, and then the café au lait hue was blended with a hot pink tone, Victoria's Secret Sheer Lip Color Duo in Berry ($15). The combination created a soft rose color with a hint of gloss and provided just enough brightness without taking it to extremes.
