Celebrities may have a whole beauty crew to make them up for their red-carpet moments, but sometimes their makeup is simple and easy to re-create. We sifted through some of our favorite looks from recent events to serve as beauty inspiration. Go on and find a new look to try this Spring!
If you're a fan of a five-minute style, then the knotted hair trend will be your favorite this Spring. Celebrities have been spotted out and about with quick and carefree topknots that are easy to get at home. Whitney Port kept her half-up hairstyle casual by whipping it up into a precarious knot at the crown. Ashlee Simpson's topknot was constructed by twisting hair around and securing it front and center, and Julianne Hough opted for a simple yet unexpected knot along her fringe line. Sometimes the best styles are left undone.
Sarah Jessica Parker is an unstoppable dynamo of style, and today she turns 48. SJP just gets better with time, and hopefully she'll be making red-carpet appearances for decades to come. Celebrate her big day with a look back at how her style has changed over the last three decades.

If there's one product you buy for Spring, make it a gorgeous makeup palette. Urban Decay never disappoints in this category, and this season the brand is showcasing two fresh palettes with 16 brand-new shades. Lorac's palette is convenient as a clutch, and NYX makes creating a smoky eye a cinch. Preview our favorite five before you purchase in today's Beauty Review. On Kirbie: Yumi Kim blouse.
Kerry Washington is a big fan of headbands, and she's worn them at a bevy of red carpet appearances, including her Django Unchained press tour. But her delicate silver number at the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala Dinner last night renewed our faith in these hair accessories being wearable and not overwhelming the rest of the outfit. Whether you're keeping your fringe off your face or adding some femininity to an otherwise simple style, a thin silver headband is an ace hair accessory to have in your arsenal. Inspired by Kerry's pretty headband? Shop the look below!
This weekend, Nicole Kidman wowed the crowd with two different beauty looks, and you can steal them both for day-to-night inspiration. At an Omega press junket, Nicole wore her shoulder-length hair slightly curled on the ends with a rosy lip color. But for the Omega gala, she boosted her look with a head full of tight ringlets, flirty lashes, and a dark pink lip hue. On both occasions Nicole looked stunning, but which was her winning moment?
Lucy Hale contrasted her classic white ensemble with a bold pink lipstick at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend. Find out the exact products to use if you want to re-create this look at home when you read more.
