Best Eyes

Amy Adams (Doubt)

Strategically lined lashes (her bottoms are defined halfway from her inner corners) and violet shadow make Amy's baby blues pop.

Get the winning look: Sweep a single wash of the purple-ish color from L'Oreal HIP Shadow Duo, $7.99, drugstores, from your lash line to your crease. Then etch a chocolate liner -- better with lavender than black -- on lower lids.

Best Pout

Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married)

Making a Hollywood classic more modern, Anne tones down a classic red lip into something more akin to sangria.

Get the winning look: To take down the intensity of a bold lip color like Lancome Color Design Lipcolor in Sealed with a Kiss, $22, lancome.com, place a tissue over your mouth and swipe your pointer finger across it once.

Best Bangs

Vanessa Hudgens

This High School Musical star makes growing out bangs look like a fashion statement.

Get the winning look: Split your bangs (the longer, the better) down the middle. Style them to each side by twirling them with a round brush like Goody Ouchless Hot Round Brush, $7.99, drugstores, while blasting them with a blow dryer.

Best Style Switch-Up
