Your weekly beauty inspiration.

Zoë Saldana, Kate Mara and Imogen Poots are just a few of the celebs giving us beauty inspiration this week! From smoky shadow to shimmering metallics to graphic black wings, eye makeup was definitely a focus. (And just wait 'til you see Hailee Steinfeld's!)

Here is the latest round-up of celebrity beauty looks:

Zoë Saldana

When her hair is scraped back, instead of loose and wavy, you really notice Zoë's amazing skin. I'm still staring at it, and how the centre of her face has such a gorgeous highlight. Then there are the smoky eyes, which look lived-in, not heavy, even though it's quite a bit of makeup. Same thing with the seamless blush and soft lip stain. The only issue is her mismatched brow pencil.

Kate Mara

I thought this gelled 'do was the best of Kate's TIFF looks, so I'm glad she busted it out again in London. There's just something about wet hair with jewel-toned makeup and a strapless gown that is sooo glamorous. The bright gold underneath her lower lashes—and the lashes themselves!—are particularly great here, as is the rich berry lip.

Imogen Poots

What do you wear to see the coolest show at New York Fashion Week? Why, you wear big winged cat eyes, doll lashes and fresh skin, of course—with au naturel textured hair. I'm becoming a major fan of Imogen! She got this just right.

Hailee Steinfeld

I so appreciate Hailee's playfulness with makeup! How can you not admire this cat eyeshadow in bright, glittering blue? Note how she paired it with lots black liner to "ground" the blue, plus sheer glossy lips and undone waves. What a fun look for a music festival.

Anne Hathaway

We haven't seen Anne since she wore that weird gold hooded thing at the Met Ball. She looks good here. Finally, her hair is long enough to wear in this wavy side-swept style, and I always like her subtle makeup. However, I think the sequins on this dress might be casting bits of light that are distorting her skin texture slightly.

Anne is wearing: Eyeliner in Charbon // Eyeliner in Azure // Eyeshadow in Violette // Blush in Bouquet Rose // Lip crayon in Blossom Kiss

Christina Hendricks

I'm not used to Christina with her hair so long, and in this bedhead texture instead of a vintage-inspired style. I suppose she is still trying to distance herself from Joan, who was so iconic. The smoky grey eyes are in nice balance with her pinky cheeks and lips. The only thing I'm wondering about is her strawberry brows... the hue seemed a bit more natural here

Freida Pinto

Wow, we haven't seen Freida since last year. (And need I remind you that I got to meet her once, the year before that? Such a pretty lady!) Anyway, this look is nice. I think she pulls off the slicked-back wet hair—although not as well as Kate Mara!—and the raspberry lipstick is great. I like her eye makeup as well.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall looks so pretty and, well, un-Kardashian here. It's fun to see her hair in an updo for once, and the peach lipstick is lovely. Most of all, this family has such beautiful eye and brow shapes—they actually do pull off false lashes well. I love the hint of gold sparkle dressing up the warm brown shadow.

Emmy Rossum

Emmy has been doing a lot better with her makeup lately. Whereas her eyeliner always used to be quite heavy-handed, now she is going for softer lines and keeping her eyes and lips in balance. Case in point: this brown shadow/liner combo with fuchsia lipstick, and her hair back in a feminine ponytail. The mix of warm with cool tones is interesting, and her lips are also unexpected with the coral dress. I like it!

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett has been MIA since the MTV Movie Awards, but it's good to have her back—and looking much prettier, I might add. The soft brows and warmer blonde hair suit her much better. I also adore the shimmering peachy copper tones on her lids. And no false lashes! 

Ariel Winter

Speaking of shimmery lids... Ariel's are truly outstanding. Her eyes kinda remind me of Kendall's, can you see the resemblance? Similarly, she has tons of space for shadow and lashes—like this creative pairing of flat grey with gold sparkle. Hair up and the rest of the makeup neutral keeps the focus where it should be.

Skyler Samuels

Do you see it? Skyler (it's her first time on this blog!) is wearing burgundy liner in her lower waterlines. Can't say I've seen that before. Everything else is so model-esque, from her artfully smoked-out shadow to her flawless skin to her full brows. I think I like her hair the best. So '80s, but in a good way!

Angie Harmon

Angie's cheeks seem a bit artificially inflated, but she still looks great. Even though she does have gorge hair, I can't help but admire her fearless approach to the updo. It shows off her fresh skin texture, glossy red lips and little hint of gold shadow. 

Zoey Deutch

Except for the bottom lip liner, I really, really like this. Zoey has fantastic brows and skin, plus a "cool girl" factor that elevates everything she wears. With chunky lashes and a voluminous updo (notice the one loose piece), she looks girly, but not too sweet.

Abigail Breslin

As usual, I could stare at Abigail's eyes and cheeks for days. This is another variation on her go-to smoky look, which she always seems to wear in different colours and textures. I like that her brows are natural, and her skin has such a ridiculously luminous glow. Unlike last time, her roots are not a distraction from the makeup.

Rita Ora

Did I mention I got to meet Rita last week? (Yep, documented here... and we even showed up on HER Instagram over here. OMG!) She looks the same, actually prettier, in person. I have no idea how she goes from long to short hair so quickly! This hot pink colour palette is a nice change from her usual red. I guess we can't expect her to give up the black liner.

Eiza González

I love seeing baby pinks on warm brunettes like Eiza—looks so pretty! It's also nice to see her with her hair back, although the front pieces are still flirty. Her foundation is way better than this one, but I still think she could find a slightly better-matching one.

Jessica Chastain

I'm a bit disappointed in this look from Jessica. Her wavy lob is pretty, her brownish-coral lip gloss is awesome... but then you get to the lashes! They are so over the top and, I hate to say it, cheap-looking. (Just look at the weird way they're curling.) I don't know why they are such a crutch for her. Obviously, my preference is for no falsies at all, but even still, way better ones could be found than these.

Ashley Benson

Here's another instance where I loathe the lashes, but love everything else. Ashley is beautiful in this smoothed, deep side-parted hairstyle. I'm also a fan of her natural brows, and the bold peachy blush with pink lips (I think her bright blue eyes and tanned skin help her to carry the colours). The lashes are just too crazy, though. If your false lashes are actually touching your eyebrows, then you know you've gone too far.
