Even with access to the industry’s top hair and makeup pros, these A-Listers stick with their tried and true beauty looks. And why not? As they say, if it ain’t broke…
Jennifer Lopez: Top Knot
From award shows to premieres, JLo’s swept up style has made an appearance all over Hollywood. It’s chic, gives everyone an instant facelift plus it’s super simple. Just tie hair into a high pony and wrap into a bun. If your locks need a boost, try using a bun tool to add thickness.
Eva Longoria: Smoky Eye
With a come-hither stare that could stop anyone dead in their tracks, Eva can’t go wrong with her go-to smoky eye. Although she typically stays in the gray shadow family, you can recreate the look with brown, blue and purple color groups as well. Use a medium-toned shade all over lids, the darkest hue in the crease and don’t forget to use a dark black liner to frame eyes. Finish with a few coats of mascara or even false lashes if you’re feeling extra sultry.
Eva Mendes: Cat Eye
If you have big doe eyes like Eva Mendes—and a steady hand—then you’re all set with this look. The hardest part is achieving a straight edge across your lashline, but with a little bit of practice you’ll be a pro in no time. Plus, keeping eyes strong yet simple means you can play around with a bold lip. Hot pink anyone?
Jessica Alba: Braided Updo
Kudos to the hot mami for mastering a hairstyle that looks great rain or shine. We love that she always finds a way to make it red-carpet worthy and not Heidi-esque. It’s also super-versatile: you can create a single braid around the crown of your head or multiple ones tied up into a bun.
Camilla Belle: Bold Brows
Lucky for Camilla, bold brows make a statement all on their own. If you too were blessed with thick brows, just tweeze stray hairs and use brow gel to keep them in place. For thinner ones, use a brow pencil a shade lighter than your (natural) hair color and use small, thin strokes going in the same direction as hair growth.
