JLaw wasn’t the only lady burning up the red carpet at the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere. Cast newcomer Jena Malone’s luminous skin, bold lip, and cat-eye had us swooning. Not to mention, she’s rocking her pixie cut with a retro edge! While traditional beauty rules would warn against trying a statement lip and eye on the same night, Jena totally crushes that convention by keeping the rest of her look decidedly fresh and low key. To get her look, start with a luminizing primer such as Smashbox Photo Finish and a medium-coverage foundation such as Armani Luminous Silk. Highlight your cheekbones with a luminizer such as The Balm’s Mary-Loumanizer. To master Jena’s eye and lip looks, use these easy tutorials:

We cannot stop talking about Jennifer Lawrence. Girlfriend blew us away at the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We love everything about her look. The freshly shorn locks. The smoky eyes. The perfectly pink pout. The oxblood mani. And don’t even get us started on that dress. To put it simply, she nailed it. Even if you don’t have the courage (or the bone structure!) to go for a pixie haircut, you can still look as stunning as J. Law. Check out our easy step-by-step guides below to copy her hair and makeup look.

Two Broke Girls star Kat Dennings looked absolutely stunning at the Thor: The Dark World premiere this week.

It’s totally appropriate for your office’s annual holiday bash but transitions easily to drinks with your friends later that night. Romantic and classy, this is a look we’ll be wearing over and over again.

Think ponytails are just for the gym? Think again. Take a cue from actress Kate Beckinsale, who demonstrates how to take a pony from “I just rolled out of bed” to total bombshell. The volume in front, the perky height in back, and the gorgeous tousled curls are perfection. You’ll definitely want to break out this hairstyle at all your upcoming holiday parties.
To do it yourself, start with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day. (Use some dry shampoo at the roots if you need it.) Curl your whole head with a medium-barrel curling wand. Tease the crown to give your hair volume and create a sexy bump. Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. For an extra chic touch, wrap a strand of hair around the elastic. Feel free to tease the hair in the pony if you want more body, and don’t forget to finish with a spritz of hair spray.

America’s sweetheart looked pretty and polished at the premiere of her new movie Gravity. We adore everything about this look: bold red lips, full brows, glowing skin, and perfectly tousled waves. And that gown? To die for. Sandy definitely knows what works for her! But even we mere mortals can pull of her classic look. Just follow our easy steps below.
First apply moisturizer (with SPF!) and a little under-eye concealer. Smooth foundation all over your face and add a rosy cream blush to just the apples of your cheeks. Keep your eye makeup simple: a thin line of black or dark brown eyeliner and two coats of black mascara. If your brows are sparse, fill them in with a brow pencil, using short strokes. Brush them with a spoolie and then set with clear gel for an of-the-moment full look. (Need more detailed eyebrow-grooming tips? Click here.) Complete your makeup with classic red lips. Our step-by-step video guide will help you get the perfect pucker. If you have texture in your hair, keep it natural. Tame frizz with a dab of styling cream and touch up straggly pieces with a curling wand. Throw on your fave LBD, and you’ll look just as as red-carpet-ready as Sandra.

Jessica Alba stepped out this week with lighter, caramel ombre locks and a medium-length blunt haircut. Let’s be honest, the girl could pull off any hairstyle, but we’re big fans of this new ‘do. The color brings out the warmth in her skin tone and makes her gorgeous brown eyes really pop. Her hairstyle is super versatile, too. We think it would look just as good straight, and it’s still long enough to easily pull into a ponytail. What about you: Are you planning to change up your hair color this fall?

Did Claire Danes cut her hair or didn’t she? That was the question during Sunday’s Emmy Awards. It turns out the Homeland actress (and Emmy winner!) went with a glamorous faux bob for the night and looked totally chic while doing it. Claire’s Old Hollywood hairstyle is the perfect complement to her soft and romantic gown, plus it highlights her gorgeous cheekbones.
To get a faux bob like Claire’s, start with smooth, straight hair and a deep side part. Tease your hair at the crown to create more volume. Then starting rolling the ends of the hair under, piece by piece, and pin each piece to the scalp. Loosen the hair around your face a little bit to create a more natural style. Spritz with some light-hold hairspray, and finish your retro look with a swipe of red lipstick.
