Elle Fanning
Elle Fanning chose sunshine yellow eyeliner to complement the yellow floral embellishments on her dress. Keeping the bright color only on the top lid makes the look even more wearable.
Camilla Belle
Camilla Belle always wows us with her makeup choices, and this updated cat eye is no different. Against her otherwise rosy look, the subtle wing effect adds a touch of drama. To get the look, use black shadow to make the wings instead of liner.
Ellie Goulding
At Coachella, Ellie Goulding performed with a pink rhinestone bindi and extra-long lashes. The look is very Gwen Stefani circa the 1990s, no?
Keri Russell
You may remember Keri Russell from the classic '90s TV show Felicity as the ultimate all-American girl next door. But the star of The Americans looked daring on the red carpet recently with a green and brown smokey eye. The glittery green shadow really makes her eyes pop!
Lorde
Seventeen-year-old Grammy winner Lorde is immediately recognizable thanks to her thick, naturally curly hair—but her penchant for purple lipstick really makes her stand out.
Lupita Nyong'o
Wearing both a statement eye and lip, Lupita Nyong'o breaks all the beauty rules your mom taught you—and looks amazing doing it.
Rita Ora
The purple eyeshadow paired with her platinum hair and nude lips keeps all the focus on Rita Ora's brown eyes.
Solange Knowles
Solange takes matching your eye makeup with your outfit to a whole new level. The emerald green shadow enhances the jewel tone of her dress.
Emma Watson
Emma Watson's red carpet game is always top notch, but we usually see the star with soft waves or an interesting updo. At the Noah premiere in Germany, Watson mixed it up with a slicked-back, wet-look style.
Taylor Momsen
The Gossip Girl alum is known for her dramatic black smokey eye, but this time, she changed it up with just a touch of teal shadow in the corners.
Rihanna
Who knew black lipstick could look so right? Rihanna makes it work with shiny black gloss at the Jean Paul Gaultier show.
Zoë Kravitz
The Divergent star made quite the hair transformation when she dyed her naturally dark hair blonde. With her rose gold eyeshadow, Zoë makes it look like she's always been a blonde!
January Jones
We love this look on the Mad Men star so much, and we think it's perfect for date night too! The cobalt blue liner on top incorporated with the sparkly gold on bottom creates a modern look.
Charlize Theron
When Charlize Theron debuted her fresh pixie cut at the Oscars last year, we were shocked by the dramatic crop–in a good way! Theron makes short hair look extra-sexy.
Katy Perry
Another surprising recent hair transformation belongs to Katy Perry, who Instagrammed her new "slime green" 'do just days ago. Mixing bright green hair with Radiant Orchid lips is a risky pairing that pays off!
Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson is usually seen on the red carpet with a "just out of bed" sexy, smokey eye, so this smudgy purple liner is an unexpected choice. We hope to see the style maven try more daring looks like this soon.
Lady Gaga
No daring beauty slideshow would be complete without the queen of fashion risks herself, Lady Gaga. While it's almost impossible to choose her most experimental look, we think these glued-on pearls take the cake. But ladies, we don't recommend trying this look at home!
