Go Clean and Classic
Could Amber Heard's makeup be any more perfect? We love the way the shadow, concentrated on the outer corners, gives her eyes a sexy almond shape.
Rosie Huntington-Whitely has the most enviable pout since Angelina-and this color makes her lips look even better. To get this effect, use your finger to pat on lipstick.
False lashes and a thick swipe of liner will always be in style. Ashley Greene gets it right and pairs the look with perfect skin and a glossy lip.

If you've got bold arches, let them be the star. We love Lily Collins's look: natural shadow and blush, nude lip gloss, lots of mascara and those killer brows.
If you've got great skin, play it up with makeup like Fergie's: Peach-toned blush, gloss and eye shadow-and big, fluttery eyelashes.

Wear a great lipstick and keep the rest of your makeup minimal like Jessica Alba.
This is the ideal look for any festive occasion-and it's wildly flattering. Try a smoky eye like Selena Gomez's with a pale-pink lip. (It's easier to wear than nude, but looks just as gorge.)
Model Chanel Iman looks like she's on her way to the sexiest of parties. From the metallic shadow to the bold crimson pout, this makeup isn't right for your office shindig...but it sure is perfect for a night on the town.
