Trends may come and go, but real classic beauty will never fade — and that's why we'll never, ever tire of seeing creamy nude lips on the mouths of our favourite celebrities. The thing about "nude" is that the colour actually encompasses hundreds of different shades. Just like everyone in the world has slightly different skin colours, we all also present a slightly different colour when we leave our lips bare or coat them with a matching lipstick. Jessica Alba, for example — her nude is a light berry shade, while Diane Kruger's natural colour is a pale and creamy shade. Miranda Kerr has a hint of pale pink to her lips, while Jennifer Hawkins has the lightest berry undertone. Whichever look you're going for, you can take inspiration from the celebrities in this gallery. Sure, they like their bright pinks and oranges, too — but paring things back never looked so good.
The holiday season is rife with glitter nail polish of all sorts, from flakies to hexagon shapes to everything in between. And while this variety of lacquer is festive and fun, the removal process isn't always quite as joyous. To remove glitter nail polish, you don't have to use mountains of cotton pads and gallons of polish remover. Just follow these simple tips below to make it easy on yourself.
- Step 1: Completely saturate a cotton ball with acetone nail polish remover. Next, set the soaked cotton ball on your pinky nail and wrap it completely in aluminum foil.
- Step 2: Repeat the process on each of your fingers and thumb, pressing down on the foils while the remover works its magic.
- Step 3: Let sit for about five minutes and then slide the foils off to reveal glitter-free nails.
- Step 4: Repeat steps one through three on the opposite hand.
Alternative: In lieu of foil and cotton balls, use white felt with acetone nail polish remover to get the glitter off.

Nicole Trunfio is easily one of our hottest modelling exports, and it's little wonder why. Her dark hair, olive skin and hazel-brown eyes work in conjunction with her stunning facial structure, to give a sexy, tough-girl look that never fails to wow us. This month, though, Russh magazine wanted to see a different Nicole — a softened version. "For our latest beauty story," Russh tells POPSUGAR Australia, "we wanted to capture a softer, more mysterious side of Nicole Trunfio. Working to enhance her natural beauty and raw sensuality, our team created looks with soft hair and dark eyes. It was a pleasure working with such an experienced model with the personality to match."
The magazine had the concept and photographer James Nelson had the skills to capture it — but it was Nicole who lent her air of grace and effortless beauty to make the shoot what it was. Click through to see all of the stunning images of Nicole in the December/January issue of Russh, out now with Catherine McNeil on the cover.
