Clever eyeliner, dreamy skin and on-point eyebrows.

It's been months since we've seen Sienna Miller—so I'm very excited to have her leading this latest round of beauty inspo. She is looking prettier than ever! There's actually tons of makeup I love this week: lots of clever eyeliner, dreamy skin and on-point eyebrows. It's a good one!

Here are the hair and makeup looks you need to see:

Sienna Miller

What I love: Before the #wokeuplikethis hashtag, there was Sienna. Does anyone do effortless, bedhead beauty better? I think not—I'm in love with her undone hairstyle (updo? I'm not sure what it is) and fresh-faced makeup. You can see her actual skin, not foundation or powder, and she skipped lipstick in favour of darkened lashes and a 360-degree swipe of smudgy plum liner. This look is 100 percent aspirational to me. What I'd change: The tail of one brow could be tamed with a slick of gel, but otherwise... nothing!

Nicola Peltz

What I love: Nicola's makeup is the epitome of the "you, only better" concept. Every feature has been subtly enhanced, and they're all in perfect balance—nothing looks overdone or screams for attention. My favourite parts are her just slightly dewy skin, au naturel brows and defined lashes. What I'd change: I've said it before, and I still think she'd be even MORE striking with shorter, darker hair.

Jessica Chastain

What I love: Jessica's new and improved beauty look continues to impress. (Kate Lee's work again!) This is like a daytime version of what she wore to the MTV Movie Awards. I adore her hair in every way (length, colour, texture), and it's insane how her skin is completely pore-less. Her brow game is heaps better, and the soft berry lipstick is the perfect shade for her. What I'd change: Nothing.

Jennifer Lawrence

What I love: As a fellow person with hooded eyes, I always admire Jennifer's eye makeup—and these cat eyes are especially impressive. The flicks, the waterlines, the fluffy upper lashes and the dusting of inner-corner shimmer... I am in awe. I'm glad she went light on the blush and lips, to emphasize the contrast of black liner against platinum blonde hair. J-Law is all grown up! What I'd change: Nothing.

Hailee Steinfeld

What I love: Hailee looks so pretty and ballerina-like in this top knot with rosy pink cheeks. Her matte blush and lip colour look like she's flushing from within (although I'm not even sure that IS lip colour, or just her natural hue). Somehow, the black liner/shadow doesn't look heavy, because it's kept below the crease and softly smudged. I particularly like how she emphasized her lower lashes. What I'd change: Nothing.

Emilia Clarke

What I love: Quelle surprise, I like Emilia's makeup again—or should I say, lack thereof! This is a typical low-key look, featuring sheer glossy berry lips, fresh skin and soft lashes. The one graphic element that pops is the jet-black liner hugging her upper lash lines. What I'd change: It's fine, but I'm not hugely crazy about this centre-parted, flippy ends hairstyle.

Amy Adams

What I love: Amy just looks so healthy here. I'm most enamoured with her plump, flushed cheeks and her go-to shimmery copper around her eyes. Her brows look darker and thicker than usual, and her hair is in fabulously condition. Nothing is super on-trend, just pretty and polished. What I'd change: Even Amy is doing the over-drawn upper lip these days. It's doesn't really work in a gloss texture.

Cara Delevingne

What I love: Cara's shimmering navy eyeliner is already cool on its own—but then she paired it with coppery eyeshadow, pink lipstick and a green dress. So many colours happening, but it works! I think it's because the blue is still fairly muted, so no one shade screams for attention. It also helps that she pulled her hair back into a tight updo, so the colour play makes the beauty statement. What I'd change: Nothing.

Kate Bosworth

What I love: Bright lips 'n' lashes—my favourite beauty look on Kate! This sheer but bold red stands out beautifully against her flawless complexion (with just a hint of sculpting on the cheeks, no distracting blush). I like that she kept her brows dark, even though her hair is super-blonde, as they help frame her face. What I'd change: Is she getting lip filler now, too? It's everywhere!

Aisha Tyler

What I love: I got excited about two things Aisha is working here. First, the matte Barbie pink lipstick—it's awesome. Second, the textured lob with choppy bangs (although not sure why there's one longer piece in the centre). We last saw her with long waves, but I think this haircut is even cuter. What I'd change: In the close-up, I'm disappointed with her eye makeup. The exaggerated cat-eye flicks and false lashes cheapen this, and I feel her eyeshadow is too light. I also think her blush could be subtler and better blended. 

Bailee Madison

What I love: Obviously, Bailee's electric blue liner! I love that we're starting to see brighter makeup colours as the weather warms up. She also has gorgeous skin and brows. Sleek, shiny hair in a deep side part, over one shoulder, is a universally flattering, timeless hairstyle. What I'd change: It would be so much better if she ditched the false lashes. And while I do love the colour peach, the lipstick application is too heavy/goopy—it's more about soft, semi-matte textures now.

What I love: Joey's skin! Oh em gee... she has to have one of the best complexions in Hollywood (right alongside Abigail Breslin). I'm equally mesmerized by her smoked-out purple eyeshadow; the black waterlines "ground" it and make her baby blues pop like crazy. With such dramatic eyes, a neat top knot was the way to go. What I'd change: The false lashes strike again! Would have been even better without.
