The menswear trend is major right now and Camilla rocks it just like a lady. Pairing a white dinner jacket with a crisp white tuxedo shirt, she pulls it all together with a traditional tie and sheer black printed scarf. Her hair is perfectly coiffed with a vintage 1940s feel, while her make-up is subdued yet sexy. Herrera tells us why this winged eyeliner is the perfect complement to this look. "The wing-tipped eye liner gives her whole makeup look some sophistication. The wing is not too pronounced. Paired with the lashes she looks perfect for the red carpet."

"Angelina adds a hint of drama with the wing-tipped eye liner to an otherwise simple face. It brings up the makeup just a notch," Herrera explains. This look exaggerates her eyes and defines their almond shape making her impossible to ignore. Herrera tells us about her favorite products to get this look: "I like to use a gel type eye liner and a precision brush. It lasts a long time and once you nail the technique, it's a cinch!"

"This exaggerated liner gives Kate a rock and roll look. It helps pull together the whole outfit," comments Herrera. Want to try this look at home? Follow this tip from Herrera and never get it wrong: "Put a little dot where you want the liner to end and draw out to the dot. This will help both eyes be even in length and placement," she says.

Katy is all about stage presence--and this look stands out. "Katy wears winged eye liner so well. The whole look is very retro and fits her persona perfectly," Herrera comments. Want to recreate the retro look? Follow these tips: "To create the perfect wing, take a Q-Tip with some makeup remover and clean up the outside of the line to make sure it is straight. Then take a fine-tipped brush and use a lighter foundation to go right up against the line you just cleaned up. The highlighter will help make the liner pop and give it dimension," explains Herrera.

It looks like Beyonce just stepped off the set of Mad Men! Herrera tells us how to get this retro look at home. "I love this whole look, the houndstooth jacket all the way down to the red lips. Beyonce made her eyes look amazing with very little shadow concentrating on the liner and lashes. It gives her a very glamorous feel."

"Lourdes lined both the bottom and top of her eyes with a very heavy black eye liner, which gives her a rock and roll, edgy feel," comments Herrera. The beauty look works well with her fashion choices. After all, what could be better with a leather jacket and skull-patterned scarf?

Jennifer looked nothing but glamorous on the red carpet. "Jennifer used the wing eyeliner to create an alluring beauty. She lined the top of her eye with precision and kept the line under her eye almost non-existent. Lining only the top opens up the eye and makes it look bigger," says Herrera.

"Nicole is incredibly innovative when it comes to fashion and the same applies to her beauty routine. She added drama with a double-winged liner and dramatic shadow. It gives her a very high fashion look and perfectly complements the sequined shades of her gown," comments Herrera.

"I think Lauren looks so glamorous and beautiful here. Everything works together--her hair, eye makeup, red lips and beautiful vintage-looking dress are all in perfect harmony," says Herrera. Want to steal this look for yourself? Follow these tips: "A good way to make sure the winged look stays sophisticated and glamorous is to use a shimmery light eye shadow. This way the eye liner can stand out and be the star. She also left the bottom lashes bare, which I love," says Herrera.

Katerina's look is dramatic and doll-like! Love this look and ready for a night on the town? "This is a very edgy and exaggerated look. Her thick black liner both on the top and bottom of the eye only works because the rest of her makeup is nude and understated so the eyes are the star. It is a cool nightclub type of look," says Herrera.
