When you want to shake things up beauty wise, don't be afraid of a little color! Zendaya proves a bright-pink pout is a total showstopper and it stands out in photos better than a pale-pink lipstick. Plus, her flirty cat-eye adds just the right amount of drama to the overall look.

This is the year for braids, and Ariel Winter's thick, loose version is one of our faves! Get the steps to master it here, then try it out at home!

Vanessa does low-key glamour better than anyone! If you want a fun, no-fuss hairstyle, try pulling your hair back into a loose low bun and leave a few face-framing tendrils out for a flirty finish. Try eggplant or charcoal shadow on your lids and smudge black liner across the waterline. Complete your look with a little clear gloss.

Just because it's prom doesn't mean you have to go the traditional route with your hair and makeup. Miley said she feels more amazing now—with her short faux-hawk hairstyle—than she did with super-long hair.

Looking to have a fairytale evening? Then you're going to need princess-inspired hair and makeup! Sarah's glossy berry lips, glam lashes, and curly updo is a winning combo!

When you're the queen of pretty side twists like LC, why stray from your signature style? Curl your strands with a one-inch barrel curing iron, then apply a shine mist all over and twist a small section of hair behind your ear to get her flawless look.

If you have dark features like Lucy, lighten them up with a pink lip and rosy blush for a seriously sultry look! Her fresh makeup instantly glams up the LBD.

Stand out in a sea of smoky black eyes with bold metallic blue! This shimmery shadow looks especially great on brown-eyed gals.

Kristen's bright fuchsia pout makes her totally party-ready, but the actress was smart to balance her bold lips with bronze eye shadow instead of dark brown or black, which would have been too harsh.

Emma proves that it doesn't take a lot of makeup to create a glam look. All it takes for this A-lister to get gorgeous is a great foundation, a light liner, some mascara, and a dramatic red lip. Emma's simple wavy 'do is also a great style to choose if you have shoulder-length locks.

We're all about a matchy-matchy moment and Demi's sun-kissed glow complements her sun-kissed top-knot perfectly! The trick to achieving the X Factor when it comes to this 'do is not to over-think it. The more undone the better!

Buns are always pretty for prom, but they can get a bit too common. Try pinning your bun to the side of your head like Monique does here, to update this hairstyle.

Ashley's messy bun updo is so cool and chic! Plus, her kohl-lined eyes, light-pink lips, and blush-colored cheeks stay true to her effortless look, but still say, "Look at me!"

Glitter-spray will add glitz to any prom hairstyle!
