Nude eyeshadow is the makeup equivalent of a great pair of jeans: It's a makeup bag essential. That being said, just like wardrobe staples, sticking with the exact same makeup routine can also get stale.

Whether you have a fear of technicolor shadows or are looking for a new way to show off your collection of nudes, we've rounded up some of our favorite neutral eyeshadow looks celebrities have recently worn on the red carpet—and that we can't stop thinking about.

Keep scrolling for seven celebrity-approved ways to wear nude eyeshadow.

Leave it to J.Lo to make neutral eyeshadow look sexy. A simple way to recreate her metallic smoky eye is reaching for a quad that holds all the shades you need like L'Oreal Paris's Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quads in Boudoir Charm ($9; walmart.com).

A light wash of a nude shadow is the perfect compliment to a soft and pretty makeup look like Witherspoon's rosey cheeks and lip.

There's only one word that can truly describe how we feel about Gomez's soft alternative to a dark, smoky eye: obsessed. To get a similar look, reach for a palette that contains a lighter neutral to sweep on as a base, and a shade or two darker to smoke the look out towards the brow bone. We love Urban Decay's Naked2 Basics Palette ($29; sephora.com).

How to rock the monochromatic makeup trend with nude shadow? Look no further than Kaia Gerber. The emerging supermodel matched her matte lip to her sparkly eyeshadow. To get a similar look, try a combo of Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop Stick Eyeshadow in Volver ($28; sephora.com) and Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème in Yours To Try ($28; sephora.com).

Mitchell's full-on glam look is proof that neutral doesn't automatically mean boring. The actress paired taupe smoky eye with blush and a semi-matte lip a shade lighter.

A shimmery nude shadow like the one Kravtiz is wearing will make eyes pop in a no-makeup makeup look. Sweep a sheer powder such as Yves Saint Laurent's Couture Mono Eyeshadow in Fastes ($30; yslbeautyus.com) to add a soft wash of color on the eyes.
