This holiday party season, dare to go nude—with your lips, that is. Since this month’s crazy schedule of festivities requires no shortage of primping and prepping, consider mixing up your holiday party makeup look by swapping out that bold red lipstick for something a bit more subtle that will allow the rest of your ensemble to shine.

We turned to our resident beauty guru Jason Ascher to get the inside track on how to not only perfect the nude lip, but also to ensure that it lasts over the course of whatever an evening throws your way. Jason partnered with Jessica Teves, editor in chief of StyleCaster, to show how to nail the look in just three easy steps that are sure to leave your lips lusciously luminous. Check out the how-to above, then head to Barneys to pick up everything you need to perfect your party pout for the holiday season and beyond.
