Stars share with us their favorite makeup looks

When it comes to rocking a red carpet, or any big event, for that matter, it isn't just about the outfit and accessories. The stars (and their stylists, hairdressers and agents) know that making a statement with your makeup (dramatic eyes!) is also key to a notice-me look.

Some Hollywood beauties like Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Morrison and Christina Hendricks go with a bright red lip when they want to "wow" the paparazzi. I do love that classic Old Hollywood look, but this season the experts say it's all about the eyes-bold and smoky with mile-long lashes.

When we asked Victoria's Secret Angels, Heidi, Selita, Alessandra, Doutzen and Marisa, as well as Mandy Moore, Ashlee Simpson and Olympic beauty Tanith Belbin, all favor the dramatic smoky eye right now. Kim and Khloe Kardashian told us they love to finish their look with extra long lashes and lots and lots of mascara. They also offered a note of caution: balance is key. If you go for these fantastic bold smoky eyes, make sure to play down your lips with a nude shade or simple gloss.

That's it for us today. Thanks for watching, you can find more at thethread.yahoo.com -- - we'll be back soon from our Planet Hollywood studio in Times Square with a brand new episode.
