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.

We’ve seen a lot of dark lips and smoky eyes for fall, but Mandy Moore shows that bright, pink-y makeup can be just as appropriate. We love her dewy skin and peachy cheeks. Gold-rimmed eyes and soft pink lipstick add to her flirty, feminine look. Sunkissed tousled waves complete her gorgeous beauty style, perfect for those cold winter nights when you’re just longing for the beach.

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.

Could Olivia Wilde be any more stunning? The actress flaunted a matte red pout, ombre waves, and subtle shimmery eyes—all big trends this season—at the London premiere of Rush. Her glam hair and makeup combo is a foolproof way to transition from summer to fall. Learn how to recreate the look below.
The key to making red lipstick work is to keep the rest of your makeup simple. Forgot about heavy eye makeup or intense blush and stick to a little concealer and foundation. Be sure to pick out the right lipstick for your skin tone. Women with fair skin should do a coral red while medium skin tones can go for a true red or pinkish red. If you have dark skin, try a burgundy shade. Test out the color on your lips, not your hand. (Tip: Head to a makeup counter or Sephora to try the color before you buy it.)
To get a red lip with staying power, line and fill in your lips with a lip liner that matches your natural lip color. Use a small lip brush to apply the lipstick. Blot your lips with a tissue. Then dust them with translucent powder to help set the color and make it last. Apply one more coat of lipstick to intensify the color. Press your lips together to complete your totally irresistible (and kissable!) look.
