Summer is so close we can practically feel it, and with it brings a fresh crop of beauty inspiration. Britt Robertson is actually, literally glowing, Olivia Palermo has that subtly highlighted-hair-and-tawny-skin pairing down pat, and Emma Stone, for example, shows us how fair-skinned brides can add a little color to their complexions. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Britt Robertson at the Tokyo premiere of Tomorrowland: Maybe her huge grin has something to do with it, but Britt is radiant. The key to getting her seemingly perfect complexion starts with moisturized skin. (Celeb makeup artist Daniel Martin once told us he always uses By Terry's Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum before applying foundation.) Then, forgo blush and use a highlighter on the apples of your cheeks. Add bronze eye shadow, a sheer, bronze lipstick, and you're good to go, or, you know, glow.
Olivia Palermo at the 30th anniversary party for Tommy Hilfiger: There's a way to go bronze without looking full-on orange, and it's this exact picture of Olivia. To emulate her chic, sun-kissed appearance, try pairing rose-toned blush and lipstick with a light layer of bronzer. (The pink tones will keep you looking natural while still adding color to your complexion.) Make it evening ready by adding brown soft, smoky eye makeup and a wispy, center-parted ponytail with a few strategic highlights framing your face. It will look like you've just returned from a day at the beach!

Emma Stone at the Los Angeles premiere of Aloha: Fair-skinned brides can wear nude lipstick without looking washed out. Just take Emma's lead and warm up your complexion with peach blush and bronze eye shadow. (A bit of white eyeliner in the inner corners of your eyes won't hurt either — it instantly makes you look wide awake.) Also: Make sure your lips are exfoliated and thoroughly moisturized before applying lip color, because nude lipstick can make dry patches look super obvious.
