23 gorgeous beauty looks

Now that awards season has drawn to a close, we return to our regular beauty programming! 

This week's batch of beauty looks is a big one, since we need to get caught up on all the gorgeousness that was happening in between awards shows. The vibes here are definitely more low-key, with relaxed waves, natural skin and pops of colour...

Christina Hendricks

What I like: Christina's glamorous Boho waves, and the striking red lipstick against her porcelain skin. I like that her brows are soft and ashy, her blush is barely there, and her lashes are natural. What I'd change: Nothing.

Emma Stone

What I like: Emma's wash of lilac eyeshadow, all the way up to her brows. I've always loved when she does this style of application; the warmer pink lips and blush make for a subtle colour-blocking effect. Her side-parted, textured lob couldn't be more perfect. What I'd change: Nothing.

Naomie Harris

What I like: Naomie's chic, monochromatic makeup. Instead of the predictable browns, she did sheer maroon lids and matching gloss; there's even a similar light colour in her lower waterlines (and natural lashes!). The deep side part keeps her hairstyle chic and off her face. What I'd change: I'd blend that lower lip liner just a tad.

Brie Larson

What I like: Doesn't Brie look so much better here than she did at the Oscars? Less is more on her—I love the fresh skin, flushed cheeks, sheer gloss and feathery brows. Most of all, I think her beachy waves and blonde hair colour look fabulous. What I'd change: Nothing.

Sophie Simmons

What I like: Sophie's defined lashes and subtle nod to the pink eyeshadow trend. She has beautiful skin and brows, too! Her hair looks super-healthy. What I'd change: Nothing.

Peyton List

What I like: It's all about that glow on Peyton's cheek. It's nice to see an 18-year-old showing off her lovely skin, instead of piling on the foundation like we saw at Kids' Choice. Brows and lashes are natural, too, and the lip stain is so pretty. What I'd change: Nothing.

Amy Adams

What I like: Amy's side-parted strawberry waves and bold pink lip gloss. Also, let's applaud her for not Botoxing the heck out of her skin, like so many of her peers! As usual, she's got some shimmer around her eyes, but her brows look bolder than usual this time. What I'd change: Nothing.

Lily Collins

What I like: Lily's Gothic glamour. She really went for it again, with dramatic berry lips, extra-long lashes and lots of blush. I think it helps that her hair is slicked at the roots and all off her face. Plus, her brows make everything better. What I'd change: I'm okay with the lashes actually, but I feel like the blush shade is a bit off.

Lily is wearing: Foundation // Concealer // Powder // Blush in Rose Fresque // Brow pencil in Neutral Brown // Lip gloss in Iron Nude (as eyeshadow) // Lip gloss in Polished Rose (as eyeshadow) // Mascara in Excessive Black // Lipstick in Perfect Fig

Kristen Stewart

What I like: Kristen's chunky black glasses, red lipstick, sooty liner and effortless short hairstyle. This was just before she shaved it all off and dyed it blonde, of course. What a shame, because this is one of my favourite looks on her ever! What I'd change: Her brows pencil's a bit too red, but you don't really notice it.

Camilla Belle

What I like: Camilla's candy pink lipstick. So few people look good in this colour (including me!) but it's always amazing on her. I also like her tightlining, strong brows and apparently foundation-free skin. What I'd change: Nothing.

AnnaSophia Robb

What I like: AnnaSophia's lived-in makeup. (She has such pretty eyes and bone structure that truth be told, any makeup would look gorge on her!) Her lashes look fluffy, with some smudgy grey liner along the top and what appears to be bronze on the bottom. I also like the sheer orange lips, and her half-up hairstyle. What I'd change: Nothing.

Kate Upton

What I like: Kate's baby pink lipstick, fresh skin, darkened brows and simple updo. Also, this is how you do false eyelashes without them overpowering your entire face! What I'd change: Nothing.

America Ferrera

What I like: America's warm red lipstick and new straight bob. I think the blonde kind of washes her out, but everyone should get to play with their colour at least once! I'm glad she kept her brows dark. What I'd change: Nothing.

Reese Witherspoon

What I like: Reese looks so cute here! She really has great skin. I always like these smudgy, purplish smoky eyes on her; the glossy pink lipstick and liner help give the illusion of fuller lips. The soft, wavy hairstyle is also great. What I'd change: Her blush looks a little muddy.

Reese is wearing: Lipstick in Pretty Pink

Allison Williams

What I like: Allison's long, loose brunette waves and tightlined eyes. Like Kristen Stewart, this is from before she dyed her hair blonde—again, too bad because this is the prettiest I've seen her look. (I was shocked at her blonde on the cover of Allure... it looks so fried!) Usually, I find she goes too heavy on the blush and contour, but there's none of that here. What I'd change: Nothing.

Yara Shahidi

What I like: Yara's berry lip gloss and braids. (There are actually two braids here, same as her ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards hairstyle.) I love her brows and how she kept her lashes super-soft. What I'd change: I'm all for glowy skin, but I might blot down a bit of this shine.

Felicity Jones

What I like: Felicity's faux curtain bangs. (How does she her hair to do that?!) I love that it doesn't look too "done." As usual, she emphasized her eyes—this time by smoking out a cat eye—and chose a soft pink for her lips and cheeks. What I'd change: Nothing.

Riley Keough

What I like: Riley's super-long, super-straight, centre-parted hair. She's got such a unique look, doesn't she? I also like the shimmer at the inner corners of her eyes. What I'd change: I prefer her hair darker and more red (like at Cannes last year). Her skin looks a little dry, but it happens!

Zoë Saldana

What I like: How amazing are Zoë's eyes here?! I love how there's black in the waterlines, all the way around, and a smoky-to-sheer purplish tone on the lids. Her skin looks glowy and her hair is so shiny. What I'd change: There's a bit of a mismatch from her face to neck and chest... but not sure that could be corrected without getting too makeuppy.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

What I like: The highlights at the inner corners of Mary's eyes, and her classic pairing of red lipstick and black liner. Her lashes and brows are soft, and her hair has nice texture. What I'd change: Nothing.

Ellie Bamber

What I like: Ellie's sequins! This is a red carpet twist on the runway look, and she paired them with the most stunning peaches and cream skin (and lips). Loose, undone hair dresses them down. What I'd change: I so wish she didn't add the extreme false lashes! It really dampens the coolness factor (as does her accessorizing).

Kate Beckinsale

What I like: Kate's ponytail with face-framing tendrils, and her sheer pink lip gloss. I also like the chunky natural lashes and smudgy brown liner under her eyes. What I'd change: Nothing.

Sienna Miller

What I like: Sienna's mini braids and loose waves. I also like that we can see her freckles, and her lashes are super-soft and fluffy. What I'd change: Her skin looks a bit red and her lips a bit dry. (Post-procedure, perhaps?) I think a darker brow colour would be better. I can't believe she is doing the Heidi Klum white eyeliner thing in her lower waterlines!
