Katharine McPhee's kiss-encouraging lip colour is Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Naturally Nude and Avon Ultra Glazewear gloss in Nude; makeup by Lauren Andersen for the 2015 Grammy Awards

For some, a bright red lip might be offputting pre-Valentine's Day makeout session. Or any makeout session, really. Unless it's a long-wear formula, bold lip colour has a habit of looking like a terribly awkward, tragic accident when it's smeared across two (or more -- no judgement) faces. If that sounds true to you, then this lovely doe-eyed look with sweetly natural lips on actress/presenter Katharine McPhee at last night's Grammy Awards is a nookie-encouraging option.

Celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen prettied Katharine's lips with Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Naturally Nude topped with Avon Ultra Glazewear in Nude. Alternatively, you could go with a sheer tinted balm, such as Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve (from $7.50 at sephora.ca and from $6 at sephora.com), or clear if you have naturally pigmented lips.

Here's what Lauren used to give Katharine McPhee her 2015 Grammys glow:
