Not gonna lie, when you spend all day skimming through red carpet photos, they all sort of smoosh together into one big blob of hair and makeup. (Another actress with "perfectly messy" waves my, oh, my, yippie skippie... ho hum.)
But examining the shots from this weekend's The Lone Ranger premiere was a breath of fresh air—an unexpected, shimmer-infused (daytime-appropriate!) smoky eye, here, the glowiest, dewiest cheekbones we've ever seen, there. We spotted so many stunning summer-y looks, it was hard to narrow 'em down to our absolute faves.
But we did! And the best part about each of these looks, is that they're all totally wearable and translatable off the red carpet. Tell us, which makeup idea (or multiple ideas!) will you be trying at home?
Julianne Hough's super-soft smoky eye:
How amazing is that purpley-gray eye shadow? Hough blended it with a shimmery white shade at her inner corners (it's an instant eye-opening trick!) and a light peach shade just under her brow line. And because all three colors are pastel-based (think: soft), they look just as lovely during the day as they would at the club.
Christian Serratos's bronzed glow:
Ladies, take note—this is how to do bronzer! Instead of going for a flushed pink, Serratos skipped the blush and went straight for a copper-y tan finishing powder. The effect? An out-of-this-world gorgeous sunkissed glow. (Read up on a few of our fave bronzers, here!)
Krysten Ritter's neutral lip color:
Summer is all about enhancing your natural beauty—rather than creating a whole new face—and Ritter gets that. Opt for a lipstick or stain that's slightly two shades darker than your natural lip color to really emphasize your pout. The hint of contrast will make you appear younger instantly.
Emma Roberts' coordinating cherry mani/pedi:
There's nothing more classic than a pop of red on your fingers and toes. Make the combo feel fresh and modern by pairing it up against a black-and-white backdrop. (Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in "Cherry Red," $3 at Amazon.com, is a never-fail option.)
Peta Murgatroyd's red-orange lipstick:
Another way to play up black and white? Shock it with a super-saturated, high-intensity orange-red lip color. It'll make your pearly whites look even whiter, too! Lately, we're loving Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in "Red Orange," $9.99 at Target.com.
Welp, what'll it be? Shocktastic lips? Mega-watt nails? Cheeks that glisten? Sound off on your top pick in our poll, below.
