Reese Witherspoon's Playful Pastel Palette

  1. Start by applying Rodial Dragon's Blood Sculpting Gel ($95) all over the face to tone the skin and keep it looking dewy all day long.
  2. Next, lightly apply foundation.
  3. For this look, the focus is on the eyes. Wash the eye in a light shadow with a deeper jewel tone along the crease. These are not the pastels of the '80s; think of them more as an alternative to neutrals.
  4. Finish with a black liquid liner along the lash line and the tops of the lashes as well.
  5. For a flushed, natural glow, highlight apples of the cheeks with a pretty pink blush (Lynne loves the Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick, $24) and finish the look with a bit of lipstick, such as Clarins Rouge Prodige ($26) in a fun shade of pink.

Rooney Mara's Dramatically Dark Lips

  1. Follow the contours of the cheeks with a light blush to make them pop.
  2. This look is all about the lips, so downplay the traditional smoky eye in a softer, less severe colour palette with a touch of shimmer. Try the Stila Natural Eye Shadow Palette ($50), which features 10 wearable, neutral shades that are perfect for this type of application.
  3. Reverse-line the lips with Cargo Reverse Lip Liner before applying lipstick to help keep colour in place.
  4. Finally, choose a long-wearing lipstick like Nars Pure Matte Lipstick ($32) in a wine or crimson red for the most impact.
