Charlize is a classic Hollywood beauty and her makeup always manages to capture the essense of Old Hollywood glamour. “The key to this look are the gorgeous lips,” says M·A·C senior artist Grace Lee. For the perfect pout, Grace recommends M·A·C's Urgent Slimshine Lipstick, a cross between a lipstick and a gloss, which delivers the perfect amount of colour every time without going over board.

Because the lips are the focal point, everything else on the face should be minimal and soft. “You want to create definition around the eye but not so much that it will fight the lips,” says Grace. Line with a bit of Blaktrack Fluidline dipped into the lash line to define the eye without looking too eyeliner-ish. With a mostly bare face, perfect skin and expertly groomed brows are essential. “Stay on the matte side, but add subtle light on the cheekbones and under the eyebrows to create a flawless complexion.” Try Shroom Eye Shadow for the perfect touch of sheen.

Renee's red carpet look is always fresh and natural looking. The key is glowing skin with just the right amount of make-up to bring out her beautiful blue eyes and full lips. “Start by prepping the skin with Strobe Cream moisturizer to get Renee's healthy glow and blending a touch of the Crème Blush on the cheeks,” says M·A·C senior artist Julie St-Laurent. Balance out any remaining blotchiness with MAC Studio Mist Foundation - its light texture is perfect for a natural finish.

For the eyes, blend Bare Canvas Paint eye shadow on the lid from lashes to brows. “Apply more product on the lid then under the brow to keep it looking natural,” says Julie. “Then use Blacktrack Fluidline eyeliner to add fullness to the lashes and create Renee's signature sultry gaze.” To bring out the eyes even more, Julie recommends using an eye pencil along the bottom lash line and gently blending for a softer effect. Finish with mascara for extra glamour. To complete the look, keep lips kissably soft and natural-looking with a pretty, nude shade.

Indie darling Zooey Deschanel's look is youthful, pretty and all about the eyes. To get her wide-eyed glamorous look, M·A·C Senior Artist Melissa Gibson, recommends starting with flawless skin by using Mineralize Skinfinish foundation all over the face. Next, use the shimmery shadow to softly rim the eye area. “The touch of frost will add a dreamy evening dimension,” Melissa says. Next, take the eye to the next level with a generous helping of mascara or, for the ultimate in glamour, give your lashes a retro boost with mod-inspired false lashes. “Finish by keeping cheeks and lips soft and neutral,” says Melissa. “That way when the paparazzi start taking pictures, all they'll notice is the sparkle in the eyes!”

Keira Knightly's look is smoky, sexy and glamorous. “It's all in the eyes - piercing and sexy,” says M·A·C Senior Artist Caitlin Callahan. “It's not for every day but it's absolutely stunning on the red carpet!” The key to this look is creating a beautiful, dramatic eye. “Use a neutral grey/brown shadow to rim the entire eye and create a mysterious, smoky look,” says Caitlin. Next define the eye using a black liner right against the lashes and add drama by packing on the mascara. Let your peepers steal the show and keep cheeks and lips soft and understated. “Use a soft peach-toned blush to shade the cheekbones and add a dab on the apples of the cheeks, then line lips and fill them in with a warm brown pencil.” For a hint of shine and fullness, add a touch of soft gloss just to the center of the lip.

“Anne's look is the epitome of modern red carpet beauty,” says M·A·C senior artist Jane McKay. The classic smoky eye is updated here with a touch of frosted sheen, playing up the metallic elements in her dress. Don't be afraid to have fun with the latest makeup trends like metallics, nudes and berry tones, but remember, a little goes a long way. According to Jane, the secret to Anne's look is luminescent skin and a shimmery smoky eye paired with a neutral lip. Use grey or even blue or green shadow on the lid to create a cool smoky look and sweep a lighter colour like Kid Eye Shadow in the crease to add brightness. Create definition by lining all around the eye and using plenty of mascara. Highlight just under the brows with a pearlescent cream shadow to catch the light. For the face and lips, all you need is the barest hint of pink blush and a pearly pink lip colour and you'll be red carpet ready in understated metallics in no time.
