Lily James, Priyanka Chopra and more.

This week's batch of celeb beauty inspo may be short, but it's pretty sweet! 

Lily James, who is on her way to becoming a household name, impressed me the most with her combo of big brown eyes and gorgeous caramel waves. I also loved Priyanka Chopra for looking glam but not overdone, and Chloë Moretz for showing off her flawless skin.

Here are this week's must-see looks:

Lily James

What I love: Lily's hair could not be more on point. The warm colour is incredible against her creamy skin and darker eye colour—it makes me wonder why more brunettes aren't trying this instead of Ombré! Also, the brushed-out waves, deep side part and lob length are all perfect. Makeup-wise, she has fantastic brows and it's nice to see a normal (non-plumped) upper lip for a change. What I'd change: The foundation seems a little too light/white compared to the skin on her back. And even though the false lashes aren't bad, I still wish she'd left them out of this look.

What I love: Lily's eyes are just mesmerizing here, and there's not a false lash to be seen! Pictures like this prove my point about falsies—you don't need them, and I'd actually argue that they are a distraction from a woman's natural beauty. I love that the makeup is so subtle here (it's really just eyeliner as the main statement), yet Lily looks super-beautiful. The way she pinned back her hair on each side is also pretty. What I'd change: Nothing at all. I really love this look!

Priyanka Chopra

What I love: Priyanka's ability to look dressed up and sexy, without resorting to heavy makeup or predictable hairstyles. That's a real skill! I think it's her hair tossed over one shoulder that makes this particular look—the body and casual texture are glorious. I also like how she frames her eyes with lashes and brows, not dark eyeshadow. These creamy raspberry lipsticks always look great on her, and this one contrasts in a neat way with her peachy cheeks. What I'd change: Maybe just a bit more camouflage on that pimple, although it's nice to see celebs are just like us!

Chloë Moretz

What I love: I don't think Chloë's skin has EVER looked this good. It's not that she doesn't have perfect skin, but I think she must normally wear too much powder or something. Not here—the texture is divine, and she looks her age (18!), for once. Her brows are also a masterpiece, and I'm really into the subtle grey smoky eyes with seamless blush and sheer shine on her lips. I also like the ease of the hairstyle (even though last week's side bun was fab, too). What I'd change: Not a thing. I think this might be my favourite Chloë look yet. She is on a roll lately!

Bella Heathcote

What I love: I have serious hair envy. The straight blonde bob is really having a moment, isn't it? (First Jennifer Lawrence, now Bella.) I like that she parted it deep on one side and kept her brows dark. What I'd change: While I love the concept of a rounded purple smoky eye, I think this application is a little heavy under her eyes, emphasizing the darkness there. Or maybe she's just tired.

Jordana Brewster

What I love: I don't usually notice Jordana too much on the red carpet, but her makeup here got my attention (in a good way). These smoky eyes really work on her! I like that the darkness doesn't go above her crease, and instead is all smudgy softness around her lash lines. I love the contrast of them against her natural, brushed-up brows—they make the smoky eyes feel more effortless. What I'd change: I'm not crazy about this centre-parted long hairstyle. I think Jordana would look awesome in a side part and a fresh blunt cut, just a few inches shorter.

Amanda Seyfried

What I love: Amanda's soft, touchable-looking waves. This is exactly how a vintage-inspired hairstyle should look in 2016—the retro shape is there, but it's not stiff at all. Makeup is her usual smoked-out eyes with black liner in the waterlines, and shimmery pale lips. I really appreciate how she enhances her colouring with these light tones instead of going too dark or bright. What I'd change: I've got nothing! Amanda truly knows what works for her, and she sticks with it.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

What I love: Mary's half-back bob 'n' bangs combo! She actually looks younger in this hairstyle, which feels really fresh to me right now. It's a lot more interesting than those textured lobs we've seen on the red carpet for years. I like that she also went back to a solid brunette colour, which brings out her eyes. The subtle pinky makeup adds to the youthful vibes. What I'd change: This is very minor, but I have an eagle eye for non-matching brow pencil...

Olivia Wilde

What I love: I'm a sucker for eye makeup on this one. Olivia went for smudgy black liner in a sideways "V" at the outer edge of each eye, with black in the waterlines as well. The slightly frosty texture of her lipstick is interesting, and I also appreciate that she skipped blush, to keep things graphic. I think her brows are a little fuller than usual, too? What I'd change: I'm a bit ho-hum on the hairstyle. Still campaigning for the return of her bangs!
