Smoky Eyes

Nary a celeb-filled event goes by without at least one starlet sporting a sexy smoky eye, and it's a trend we don't see budging any time soon. One of our favorite examples? Mila Kunis at the German premiere of Friends with Benefits in 2011 with metallic, charcoal-chic lids.

Red Lips

A classic red lip is one of the trustiest ways a starlet adds polish to her look. Whether it's deep and dark or a saucy fire-truck red, a little color goes a long way. We love Taylor Swift's perfectly defined pout at the ACM Honors in 2011.

Fresh Face

It's no newsflash that celebs are ridiculously (obnoxiously) gorgeous, so we love it when stars choose to skip dramatic makeup in favor of something more natural. Here, Thandie Newton glows at 2011 event fighting violence against women and children.

Bright Lips

With a myriad of red carpet opps to primp for, plenty of A-listers take a break from classically-hued pouts and try an electric jolt of bright color instead. Seen at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, crimson-devotee, Gwen Stefani, tries her hand at a punchier, neon pucker.

Dramatic Lashes

Kim Kardashian is a girl who loves her makeup, but at the Vera Wang Spring 2012 fashion show, it was her outrageously long lashes that caught our attention. Whether they're full and flirty or just expertly defined, we're lovin' how Hollywood has finally lashed out.

Why go neutral, when you can go bold? We love it when red-carpet regulars ditch subtle shadows in favor of hints of technicolor glam. Here, Katy Perry accents her lids with purple and green at the Grammys in 2011.
