To channel Dianna Agron's day-to-night style, begin by applying Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Purple Passion with a damp brush (to minimize product fall off) over the middle of the lid, blending upward and toward the outer edges. Line water line with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx and top with a couple of coats of mascara. Dust a powder bronzer onto cheekbones, along temples and across bridge of nose and forehead for a soft healthy glow. Try Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer in Medium Deep.

The secret to Julianne Hough's luminescent complexion is highlighter. Add instant charisma by applying a white pearl crème highlighter to the center of your nose, the high points of your cheek, and to the inner corner of eyes.


To create Julianne’s perfect red pout, apply a lip conditioner, then line lips with Jouer Lip Definer in Rogue. When lining lips, start at the “v” of top line and then the rounded part of lower lip, connecting the two. Apply Jouer Hydrating Lipstick in Simone with a brush. To keep lips from feathering and create a velvety matte finish that will last all night, place a single tissue over lips and apply Jouer Mattifying Translucent Powder with a big brush over the tissue, then apply one more coat of lipstick.
