Star for a Night

Six makeup artists on how to give yourself some Hollywood sex appeal.

For Kate Hudson's Sun-Kissed Look
"Try my Light Reflecting Bronzer. It's a unique three-in-one palette in shell, sand, and bronze. Apply it to your cheeks, forehead, and chin with a blush brush, over your foundation or primer." Sue Devitt, who creates looks for the Versace and Dolce & Gabbana catwalks.

Light Reflecting Bronzer in Beausoleil, $30, 888/870-1150,

For Renée Zellweger's Rosy Cheeks
"To give yourself the 'lit up' effect, look at the color of your cheeks right after a workout, then buy a blush that's one shade brighter. Try Inner Glow, just on the apples of your cheeks. Tap it on with your fingers and blend it in with outward strokes." Alison Raffaele, a former celebrity stylist who counts Alicia Keys and Kirsten Dunst among the fans of her makeup line.

Inner Glow in Glamorous and Graceful, $25 each, 800/301-4654,

For Eva Longoria's Dewy Sheen
"Nothing lights up the face like a hint of shimmer, but to avoid an overdose, apply it to only one or two parts of your face. My Shimmer Brick can be used as a highlighter on cheeks or eyes." Bobbi Brown, who started selling lipstick to Bergdorf Goodman in 1991, has become one of the most recognizable names in the business.

Shimmer Brick Compact in Pink, $38, 877/310-9222,

For Scarlett Johansson's Mile-Long Lashes
"Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot with false lashes. They're easier to wear than you think: Cut the strip in two and use the half with longer lashes at the outside corners of your eyes. This'll give you a more natural look. Andrea lashes #53 are my favorites." Carmindy Bowyer, one of the stars of TLC's What Not to Wear.

Andrea Modlash in #53 Black, $3.25 per pair, 800/378-4786,

For Jessica Simpson's Smoldering Gaze
"The hot look now is smoky eyes. Start by applying a neutral base all over the eyelid, up to the brow. Next, use a light color on the entire lid. Then take a charcoal gray or a navy blue and apply it generously on the top outside corner of your lid. Don't forget the eyelash curler and mascara." Paula Dorf, whose products have been used by the likes of Sandra Bullock and Mandy Moore.

Eye Color Glimmer in Prism and Midnight, Eye Color in Hussy, $19, 888/472-8523,

For Cameron Diaz's Red-Carpet Lips
"Coat your lips with a little concealer, then outline them with a red lip pencil. Take a fabulous blue-red lipstick and apply it to the whole mouth. Finally, dab a silverized gloss--or gold if you're wearing gold jewelry--at the center of the lower lip. This absolutely puts you into party mode." Laura Geller, a frequent contributor to QVC.

Crease-Less Concealer in Medium, $28; Dual-Ended Lipstick and Liner in Cherry Bing, $17; Lip Gloss in City Lights, $17; 800/625-3874,
