At the Hollywood premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Monday, New Zealand-born actress, Rose McIver, looked luminous. The 25-year-old currently stars as Tinkerbell in the ABC series Once Upon a Time. Much like her character, Rose looked ethereal and other-wordly with fresh, dewy skin, highlighted cheekbones, and a gradual smoky cat eye.
To achieve her look, prep skin with primer and medium-coverage foundation. The, use a creme blush on the apples of your cheeks–we love Stila’s convertible color. Next sweep a highlighting powder over the tops of your cheekbones, in the inner corners of your eye, and on your cupid’s bow. For lips, use a pinky-nude shade and slick on a light coating of gloss. To learn how to get Rose’s smoky eye look, check out his easy, step-by-step video tutorial.

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:

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.

Well, hello there, Keri Russell! We saw this eye makeup look all over the runways at Fashion Week, and now the gorgeous television star proves you can in fact rock blue eyeshadow off the catwalk—and not look like you’re going to an ’80s dance party. Want to try it for yourself? We’ll show you how below.
The icy blue makeup makes Keri’s green eyes really pop. But you don’t need green eyes to pull off the fun look. Just make sure you stick to shades of cobalt and teal; pastel blue and aqua look too childish. (Our beauty director loves this eyeshadow quad from L’Oreal.) First, apply a flesh-toned eyeshadow base and then the blue shadow on top. Use either a blue or black eyeliner and black mascara. The most important step in recreating this look is to keep your other makeup simple. Take note of the rest of Keri’s makeup: dewey skin, perfectly groomed brows, and a totally-natural lip color.
Throw on a lace cami, structured blazer, and leather jeggings like Keri did, and you’ve got yourself an edgy-glam date-night look.
