4. Janelle Monáe: Mismatched upper and lower lids are So. Much. Fun. Festive colors, like Monáe’s shining blue shadow, give traditional looks extra oomph. (Photo via Steve Granitz/WireImage/Getty)

warm-toned all-over shimmer

5. Elle Fanning: Warm neutrals make for gorg all-over color, and keep with the barely there appeal of the no-makeup look. Nix liner and apply only a single coat of mascara to complete the delicate aesthetic. (Photo via Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage/Getty)

6. Zoe Kravitz: Holy hotness. Kravitz is adorned in a creamy, golden hue that ties her look together flawlessly — hair, jewelry, blouse, and all. (Photo via Jamie McCarthy/Getty)

smoked-out eyes

10. Rita Ora: The basic smokey eye should probably just retire, because the songstress/fashionista’s graphite rendition, with pearly accents at her inner eye, can’t be topped. (Photo via Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/ Getty)

11. Nicole Richie: Green goddess that she is, Richie slays with bold eyes and a neutral lip. Blending silvery green sparkles with a non-shimmery olive color keeps the style from being OTT. (Photo via Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/Getty)
