Trend Alert: Nude Beauty at the Oscars

We're so proud of Penélope Cruz, Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz—not only did these Latina leading ladies avoid the pitfall of wearing a red gown and looking like everyone else at the Oscars, but they also rejected the bright pinks and reds seen on the faces of other stars and went for an au naturale glow. All three stars proved that even on a night as spectacular as the Academy Awards, nude makeup can be sublimely sexy.

Want the look? A light, sheer foundation and blush or neutral-toned shadows dusted across the eyes should get you started, but the key is all in the lipstick. And choosing the perfect shade, of course, all depends on your skintone. Try these new colors in Bobbi Brown's wonderful new Cream Lip Color line, and you're on your way to looking as breezily glamorous as our hottest stars.

(Editor's pick: For light complexions, Pink Ballet and Crystal Pink; For medium complexions, Rose Petal and Nude Pink; For dark complexions, Bronzed Pink and Honeysuckle. $22, Bobbi Brown counters nationwide)
