Blondes CAN wear heavy eye makeup, as proven by Diane Kruger. The key is to have well-manicured brows (they will provide a good frame for your eyes) and also add illuminator to the inner corner of the eyes, this will lighten the whole look and tie in the dark shadow with your complexion.

Bella Heathcote has one of those faces that don’t need much. Purple shadow is great for bringing out light eyes and the sheer gloss feels right for summer. Always use a bit of blush in the warmer months to ensure you have a healthy warm-weather glow.

So you know the rule that says you can only accentuate your eyes OR your lips? Well, like all rules, sometimes it needs to be broken. Here Jen has candy pink lips AND long lashed and shadowed eyes - and she looks beautiful. The key here is restraint: you can play up both features by keep things fairly simple and no clashing colours.

She often wears a lot less makeup than this so it’s nice to see Kristen Stewart really dolled up. The red lips really suit her, and with that bronzed smoky eye she has a real va-va-voom factor here.

So if you have amazing olive skin and perfectly groomed brows like Eva Mendes all you need is a slick of gloss and some mascara (because no one looks human without these two things), and voila you’re party-ready. For a dewy look try some lip-gloss or facial oil on your eyelids and you cheek bones.

Make your shadow the focal point by layering it on thick and keeping your other makeup softer. We love how Olivia Munn’s creamy orange shadow brings out her eyes.

When you have brows like Hilary Rhoda, they should always be the centre of attention. So keep the rest of your face sparse, a great base and some mascara will do, brush your brows with some gel to keep them in place, and that’s it, you’re done.

If there is a quintessential party makeup look then this is it… Taylor’s soft pink pout and dark smouldering eyes (from underneath heavy bangs) are just perfect.

Amy Adams rocks a barely-there look amazingly well. The key to this style is skin prep before your big night. So lots of face masks, plenty of moisturiser and loads of water, then keep your base light and dewy, with illuminator on key areas like your cheek bones.

Want to know how to do the perfect seductive eye? Don’t look further than Marion Cotillard’s smudgy style. The key to this look is eyeliner lining the inner rim of the eye the whole way around, loads of liner/shadow smudged on the bottom and upper lash line and about a kilo of mascara.
