Get The Look: A barely there nude instantly plumps and looks appealing. Remember, too, that dry lips are more noticeable with sheers, so exfoliate with a damp washcloth and pile on the lip balm. "I like to pat the lipstick in with my finger for a more precise-but-muted finish," says Westman. If you're going for a monochromatic look, polished skin - helped along with concealer, a little foundation, and a nude cream blush - is crucial.
