Taylor Swift

Taylor is doing all her signature Taylor things—bold cat eyes, bright lipstick and long lashes—and I love it, maybe because she's been absent from the red carpet for a long while! My favourite part is her soft, face-framing bangs, which I plan on asking my hairdresser to replicate ASAP. 

Gal Gadot

Gal looks so confident and sophisticated with this simple red lipstick look and no blush. (Is it just me or are we seeing less colour on the cheeks these days?) Her glossy black hair and matching black outfit make her skin pop (although her skin slightly dry from being powdered).

Penélope Cruz

Could Penélope be any prettier and glowier?! She always has this amazing sun-kissed look to her makeup, with lots of warm bronzey tones and a sprinkling of faux freckles. The half-up hairstyle is perhaps not the most current, but that can't take away from her beauty.

Laura Harrier

Laura's complexion is so ridiculously perfect here, I NEED to find out her secrets! Style-wise, I'm loving her head full of long braids, with pretty pink lipstick and matching cream blush. Also notice the subtle cat eyes and super soft lashes.

Jennifer Lawrence

Speaking of great skin, Jennifer is looking ultra flawless here, too! What's interesting about the makeup is the sheer taupe shadow in a graphic shape to subtly define her eyes. I'm a big fan of this shade of blonde on her, as well as the touchable, brushed-out waves.

Emma Stone

I wasn't crazy about Emma's hair colour at the Oscars, but I am now that it has faded into this gorgeous deep auburn. The tightlined eye adds just enough drama without overwhelming her delicate features. A dusting of shimmery shadow and a glossy rose lip tie it all together.

Katherine Langford

If you love creative makeup, Katherine is one to watch! This vibrant, diffused red eyeshadow is so unique, paired with full brows, nude lips, long waves and beautiful skin. It's just too bad her top lip is so obviously pumped up with filler, you know?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie departed from her usual subdued makeup, choosing bold winged liner all the way around her eyes. Love! I'm also into her centre-parted hair, which is flat near the top, with a cool "bend" through the lengths.

Gemma Chan

It's nice to see a more relaxed side of Gemma compared to the Oscars. The purple shadow in a rounded shape is fun and unexpected, and wearing her hair down keeps it casual. I also like the soft lashes... but it looks like she, too, has jumped on board the celeb lip filler bandwagon!

Jennifer Connelly

Jennifer is so striking with her mane of long, black hair and her naturally straight, thick brows. All she needs is her go-to eyeliner along her upper lash lines. I really appreciate that she hasn't Botoxed away her wrinkles!

Elle Fanning

I'm not sure if it was intentional, but Elle matched her eye makeup to the backdrop here. There's a thin sweep of icy yellow along her lower lash lines, with a bright blue along the top. It works because everything else is bare and fresh. 

Emma Roberts

I'm so glad Emma went back to dark hair—it suits her more than this blonde from the last time we saw her! To go with it, she amped up the intensity of her makeup. Although the lashes are a little clumpy, I love her glittery-smoky eyes, pink lips and peach blush.

Miley Cyrus

Is anyone else still getting used to the new Miley, with long hair? For this look, she slicked it off her face to bring the focus to her eyes. It's all about the defined upper lashes and bright gold shadow, with an understated nude lipstick. 

Eva Green

Eva's signature look is jet-black hair and pale skin, but this makeup gives her face more life than it has had in the past (like here, for example!). The blush, contour and highlight were so skillfully done, and these pinks are super flattering. 

Adriana Lima

Every time I see Adriana, I think, "Is she even real?" And here even more so, thanks to this mesmerizing eye makeup that exaggerates her already feline features. If you look closely, there's actually a double line at the edges—VERY cool!

Mila Kunis

Mila is serving up simple, pretty makeup with soft, fluffy waves. I like all the pinks here—lips, cheeks, eyelids—and how they are framed by her brows, lashes and a slick of black liner.

Brie Larson

I love that Brie switched up her colour palette here, wearing a royal blue gown with sheer makeup instead of her usual warm muddy tones. I also like the loose bun instead of the rooty bleached bob from the Oscars. But on the other hand, I feel like this is missing something, no?

Isla Fisher

As usual, Isla's glorious red hair was the focal point, casually swept over one shoulder. The makeup is all about lashes and lips, but wisely, the latter are more peachy than pink. (Pink would be too matchy-matchy with her suit!)

Anne Hathaway

Anne is sporting an understated daytime look that's totally different from her Globes hair and makeup a couple months ago. There's mascara on her upper lashes to give her eyes a lift, and a creamy warm red lipstick. No detectable blush here either!

Kate Hudson

The last time we saw Kate, she was rocking a pixie cut. Now, no doubt thanks to extensions, her hair is long again (definitely my preferred length on her). The red lip is fab, although her skin could use some warmth, perhaps a peach blush. Doesn't she look more like her mother every day?

Cate Blanchett

I don't know what's going on with Cate's outfit (!!), but her makeup is what caught my interest. While she matched her eyeshadow to her bubblegum pink lipstick, the twist is a bright peach blush. I don't know... I'm kind of into it. I just wish she'd toned down the lashes (and chosen something else to wear, of course!).

Which celeb had your favourite (and least favourite) beauty look lately?
