But as Charlize Theron demonstrates, even with an eye doused in layers of sparkly gray and heavy charcoal, she is still sizzling. 02 of 10 Scarlett Johansson's Dark Brows Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage "It was a little bit '80s," says makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato, who created this look. He calls the dark brow with her super-blonde hair a touch Madonna, a bit Old Hollywood and overall very sexy. 03 of 10 Natalie Portman's Tan Skin Steve Granitz/WireImage Rules, like 'no white after labor day' and 'tan skin is for the summertime,' are made to be broken. When Portman extended her glow into the fall (with almost frosty, sunblock-coated lips), she announced that her classic good looks don't always follow the rules. 04 of 10 Jennifer Lopez's Bold Smoky Eye L. Gallo/WENN To achieve what he calls a "powerful" look, makeup artist Scott Barnes layered shades of gray on Lopez "because her eyes are brown with a lot of gold in them and the gray picks that up and makes the gold even more intense." 05 of 10 Rihanna's Electric Blue Mascara Steve Granitz/WireImage There were two reasons makeup artist Mylah Morales chose this unusual choice of mascara for Rihanna: "It's a subtle splash of color without overdoing it. And it opens up the eye and makes the whites look even whiter." 06 of 10 Rebecca Romijn's Pin-up Red Lips Dennis van Tine/LFI "She has always reminded me of the original Barbie doll from 1959," says makeup artist Krisofer Buckle of Romijn, so he played up that aspect with a bright pout, liquid liner and false lashes. "She was wearing red patent shoes that looked like candy so I made her lips match." 07 of 10 Alicia Keys's Rosy Cheeks Jamie McCarthy/WireImage Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff wanted a clean look with a few punches of color, especially on the cheeks. "I wanted them to look like flowers in the garden," says Sheriff. "And I added an element of fun with turquoise and blue eyeliner close to the lash line." 08 of 10 Eve's Multi-Tonal Liner Steve Granitz/WireImage "We wanted to step outside the box and away from the natural look," says makeup artist JJ Jacobucci, who used M.A.C shadows (pink pigment along the bottom and amber lights on the top) to get this unique combination of eye-popping pastel hues. 09 of 10 Mary-Kate Olsen's Heavy Lower Lashline Lorenzo Santini/WireImage It could be an ode to A Clockwork Orange-the pale skin, dark lips and lower lashes-but enhancing the lower lash line looks modern and helps to add width to Olsen's round eyes. 10 of 10 Thandie Newton's Lilac Eyeliner Chris Jackson/Getty It takes a makeup daredevil to pull it off, but by rimming the eyes with a bold shade, the eyes become the focal point on the face and the whites of the eyes become whiter. And that's worth the risk.
