Lawson usually goes for the natural look at public appearances (left). But at a book signing this week (right) she showed up with an extreme vampire-style look - blood-red lips, pale skin, and dark hair. Perhaps the star is a fan of Twilight or True Blood?

Yikes! Does Ms. Miller own a mirror? From the looks of her orange lips and thickly penciled brows, the answer seems to be no. All Sienna needs to look camera-ready is some mascara, a touch of blush and pretty pink lips.

Posh's dark eye-shadow and eye-pencil emphasise her chocolate brown eyes and her neutral lip colour compliments her skin tone perfectly.

Not long ago Amy's signature beehive, winged eyeliner and pale lips made her stand out in the music scene - in a modern, iconoclastic way. Today, the hard-partying songstress looks as though she's had one big night too many, and neither her body nor her foundation has survived intact.

Kelly's jet black hair, bright red lips and ghostly skin look a bit too Marilyn Manson inspired. It's good to see she's got a healthy glow back. Kelly's statement eyes and neutral lip gloss look gorgeous too.

Okay, we know you're a girly-girl. But, honey, you're only 25, which means that now's the time to play up your fresh-faced sweetness. The too-blue shadow, bold black liner and overly-oranged cheeks age you. Even you look surprised.
