I can't get enough of Lucy's bedhead hair, big brows and bright, subtly shaded eyes. She executes the textured lob perfectly, and I love the pretty pink lipstick and flushed cheeks. I think the false lashes work here, too.

Lucy is wearing: MoisturizerFoundation • Illuminating powder in Amped Up • Blush in Berry Glow • Highlighter in Pearly Glow • Lipstick in Bare All • Lipstick in Baby Me

Jessica Alba

Jessica looks young and fresh in understated hair and makeup. Her skin is perfected and glowy, with minimal blush, pale shimmery champagne shadow and sheer lip gloss. I don't mind the false lashes here, either.

Kat's new baby bangs are cute on her—and I'm glad to see a much lighter touch on the makeup! Whittling it down to just lashes and brows allows you to appreciate her nice skin and unique features. But I still wish she'd give up the green contact lenses, and the brows are too Instagrammy.

Ashley Benson

Ashley pulls off dramatic eye makeup well, so these gold and silver shadows are a great look for her, framed by a gorgeous pair of feathery brows. I love that the colours are concentrated below her eyes, and the rest of her makeup is nude and glowy. 

Chanel Iman

Chanel showed off her model features with sculpted skin and a neutral palette to shade her eyes. (No oversized lashes required!) I love her hair like this, all relaxed and voluminous... but I find the brows too drawn-on.

Sarah Hyland

I never get tired of bright liner for the summertime, and Sarah's blue shade underneath her eyes is no exception. Still, she doesn't need so much makeup everywhere else—I'd take away the false lashes, tone down the blush/contour and lipstick, and leave the brows au naturel. Hair-wise, I love how she styled her lob in a deep side part, braided on one side.

Sarah is wearing: Foundation • Contour in Medium Contour • Blush in Es Vedra • Illuminator in Brilliant Light • Eyeshadow in Rosegold • Eyeshadow in Ambre Nuit • Eyeshadow in Wild Cosmos • Mascara • False lashes • Brow pencil in Soft Brown • Lip liner in Iconic Nude • Lipstick in Half-N-Half

Gina Rodriguez

Gina paired her menswear-inspired outfit with girly pink lips, cheeks and lids. The playful colour and the sheer textures—along with her newly blondified hair—are a nice departure from her more formal style. I think the false lashes with the black liquid liner work well to define and open up her eyes.

Gina is wearing: Moisturizer • Eye serum • Skin perfector • Primer • Foundation and concealer in Honey • Bronzer in Sunkissed • Contour in Defining Roses • Eyeshadow in Pink and Plenty • Eyeshadow in Biggest Blossom • Eyeshadow in Bountiful Beige • Eyeshadow in Bubble Bath • Eyeshadow in Blushed • Eyeshadow in Strawberry Fudge • Mascara in Black • Brow pencil in Deep Brown • Brow mousse in Deep Brown • Tinted lip balm in Flowering Freesia • Tinted lip balm in Curvy Candy

Lea Michele

Lea was another one to play with colourful eye makeup, here wearing a flash of teal framed by defined, natural lashes. Even though her face is a bit lighter than her neck (it happens, in the summertime!), her skin looks really fresh. I also like the pinky nude lips and her centre-parted hair, tucked behind her ears and cascading down her back.

Lea is wearing: Face mist • Moisturizer • BB cream • Eyeliner in S-20 • Lip balm • Lipstick in Nile Nude

Dove, as usual, looks like a doll come to life. And and always, I'm swooning over her utterly flawless complexion. I think she did a good job with the textured brows, glossy stained lips and well-blended blush. But I'm not so into the platinum hair, injected lips and highlighter on the tip of her nose!
