Mila Kunis, Zoë Saldana, Emma Stone and more show how switching up your makeup can instantly take your look from casual and cool to sexy and evening-appropriate
No need to lug your whole makeup kit to work just because you’re going out later. Transition your look with just one product as Mila does. Her subtle smoky eye gets sexed up with nothing but dark metallic shadow applied all the way to the brow bone.
After rocking her trademark golden glow poolside, the Hills alum adds dramatic liner and a cranberry lip stain for the MTV Snow Jam VIP launch event.
With delicate features and a rosy complexion, the stylista easily transitions from fresh-faced to vamp with a sweep of merlot lip stain and heavy liner.
She looks totally laid-back and lovely with a hint of purple shadow and barely-there gloss, but bright red lipstick and a slicked-down style prove that the actress is a style force to be reckoned with.

SJP opted for a simple sweep of mascara one day, then added complementary shadow and inky waterlines for an after-dark look.
The red carpet pro proved that daytime makeup doesn’t have to mean less makeup by playing with blue shadow and a coral lip (the perfect complement to her flirty do). Then, for a night on the town, she went with a wash of smoky shadow and fuschia lipstick.
Rosy pink lips are all the star needs to look polished, but she also looks great glammed up with a deep plum pout and long lashes.
She coined the term “smize” (as in “smile with your eyes”) and Tyra made quite the statement with her peepers when she ditched her shimmery-yet-subtle eye shadow for an ultra-dramatic application of winged-out smoky shadow.
Dewy skin and a light pink lip was low key and lovely for a daytime event, but Jessica Alba opted for drama with gold eye shadow and a classic red lip to play up her Old Hollywood ensemble at the Met Gala.
The diva usually opts for the ultimate guy-hot look (glowing skin, major lashes and glossy lips), but on a recent red carpet she dialed up the drama with more girl-hot makeup: intense eyeliner and a deep berry pout.
A swipe of bronze shadow and a little pink gloss was all Leighton needed to look polished for a sunny bash. For a night event, she pulled back her hair and wore a deep burgundy lip shade, plus a few extra coats of mascara.
Mascara on the upper and lower lashes and a bit of rosy blush, as seen on Emma, is fresh, flirty and helps you look awake when you’re heading out the door. Have a few more minutes to prep before going out for the evening? Play with sparkly, colorful shadow, highlighter and contouring.
The star shows that heavy liner can work while the sun’s still up as long it’s paired with a neutral gloss and a little bronzer. Once the sun sets, though, wing out upper lids with a carefully applied shimmery black shadow, plus an extra coat of liner below.
