With Miley Cyrus hosting the festivities, we already knew the MTV VMA 2015 would be one crazy night. Between Justin Bieber’s onstage breakdown, the catty exchanges between the host and a certain nominee, and Kanye’s 2020 presidential ambitions, there was a whole lot to gab about over the long weekend.

But we’re beauty girls at heart, so amidst all the drama, we couldn’t overlook the single makeup element that held every diva together like glue. You’ll love this, ladies, because it works just as well for the office as it did for the VMAs: nude lipstick!

Check out Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift post-Twitter fight, all friends again and sporting matching nude lippies to prove it:

Nicki also posted a photo of herself spliced together with Taylor, Britney Spears, and Demi Lovato, captioning it, “Kisses to my girls.”

Not to be outdone, queen of the girl squad Taylor managed to get in her own barkada selfie by way of supermodel Karlie Kloss:

And Selena Gomez did the same, posting a group shot that features what appears to be the entire Victoria’s Secret lineup:

And what would an award show be without the unpredictable Yeezy and his world-famous missus? Kim Kardashian definitely got the nude lipstick memo:


You know it’s a thing when Kim K. does it. Break out your neutral tubes and swipe away!
