We always enjoy a throwback—even if it’s not on Thursday. Zoë Kravitz toughened up her micro-pleated Lanvin gown at the American Ballet Theatre’s Spring Gala with a simple black dot on her bottom lash line, a move that reminded us of the strategically placed sequins at Givenchy’s Spring 2012 show. And while we love a quick hit of shine, for those of us who don’t have the patience to slice and dice silver sparkles to Pat McGrath’s standards, accenting our eyes with the tip of a liquid liner pen seems like a much more reasonable—and still very rad—option.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Carolyn Murphy’s sleek knot and Cara Delevingne’s bronzed eyes). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Zoë Kravitz, 2014 Met Ball, New York
Now that spring has finally sprung, our favorite girls are upping their red-carpet game with bold, attention-grabbing hues. At Monday’s star-studded Met ball, Kravitz played up her crimson dress with a daring red eye, a color that came courtesy of Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color in Incandescente.
Rihanna, Dior’s Resort 2015 Show, Brooklyn, New York
Super-high ponies are having a serious moment (remember Cara’s take?). Rihanna teamed hers with a bold red lip and pastel nails for Dior’s Resort show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Suki Waterhouse, Burberry’s Dinner for the New Museum, New York
The swinging sixties were a major reference on the Fall ’14 runways, and we love the idea of mod-inflected beauty. Waterhouse opted for a Brigitte Bardot-like, half-up hair look and smudgy charcoal shadow for a Burberry dinner on Wednesday.
Solange Knowles, Creative Time Gala, New York
Some of the best beauty advice we’ve heard is to stick with your natural hair texture. Knowles opted for a halo of big, natural curls, then expertly matched her lipstick to her poppy dress.
Janelle Monáe, Met Ball, New York
We love a girl with a signature look. Monáe and her trademark pouf exploded on the scene a few years ago, and for this year’s Met ball she added a long braid.
Last night’s launch party for Choo.08 (a line of more practical, sporty footwear from Jimmy Choo) in Beverly Hills celebrated accessories, but there were also plenty of covetable beauty looks on display. Similar to shoe shopping, it’s hard to single out just one hairstyle or makeup move and label it my favorite, so I thought I’d feature all of the standout moments (like Solange Knowles’ tangerine liner, Sandra Choi’s buzzed crop, and Emmy Rossum’s inky eyes and inventive nail art) from the evening’s fete: Click here to see the slideshow.

Make the most of your moons with evil eyes like Emmy Rossum.
…or try metallic navy shadow in lieu of basic black.

There were quite a few contenders for best beauty move of the week—among them, the steel underliner sported by Zoë Kravitz and mixed metal bobbies Emma Watson wore to one side. Here, our five remaining red-carpet favorites.
Jennifer Connelly; Noah premiere; Madrid, Spain
The perfect pair: Connelly’s crystal collar and fuchsia lips.
Annie Clark; St. Vincent at the Grammy Museum; Los Angeles, CA
The blue lids and lashes Pat McGrath created at Dior successfully transitioned from the catwalk to the stage care of Clark.
Scarlett Johansson; Captain America: The Winter Soldier premiere; Paris, France
Johansson’s purple cat-eyes took us back to a bright spot in backstage beauty history: Jason Wu’s Fall 2013 runway.
January Jones; Rebel With a Cause Gala; Hollywood, CA
We don’t know which was better, Jones’ windswept waves or fiery lips.
Shailene Woodley; Divergent screening; New York, NY
Woodley revives the loud mouth seen at Rag & Bone’s Spring 2014 show.
At last night’s Divergent premiere in Los Angeles, Zoë Kravitz worked a look we saw on multiple runways this season: underliner. In lieu of the darker pewter band on top, Kravitz rimmed her lower lashes with the shade and winged it out past the outer corners—a technique seen at Thakoon, Giles, and Topshop Unique. To complete the cat-eye shape, a silver shadow was shaped over her lid and around the tear duct, making for an ethereal-yet-futuristic effect. As for her glowy skin and smattering of freckles left untouched across the bridge of her nose: pure complexion perfection.
