Lily Collins

It’s all about the natural-looking long lashes and bold brows with Collins. (Hint: She’s a fan of Lancôme's Lash Idôle Mascara.)@Lilyjcollins/Instagram


As the star behind Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin, you can count on Rihanna for no-makeup makeup brilliance. The angled, lightly filled brows and dark lashes make this look.@Badgirlriri/Instagram
