  1. Rockin' Hair
    Go bold with a pop of color on your lids and a faux-hawk for your tresses, but be sure to balance it out with soft nude lips and groomed brows.

  2. Queen Elsa
    Steal Queen Elsa's look without going totally Disney, think dramatic winged liner and crystal stickers beneath your eyes, all you need now is a crown.

  3. Pretty Pixie
    Step into spring with vibrant purple smoky eyes and a matching flower crown in your hair.

  4. Sequined Eyes
    Sparkle and shine with this sequined eye look, straight hair, and a touch of blush on the lips and cheeks.

  5. Main Tress
    Go glam with '50s one-sided pony with pale peach lips and big crystal earrings. Best to wear with a white wrap around dress!

  6. Braided Ambitions
    Need a working hairstyle to pair a simple sweet outfit? Go for this braided look from your crown all the way down.

  7. Bun Perfection
    Be that star student and accessorize a fanned out bun with hair gems, flowers, or stars! You can even DIY your accessories for a personalized touch!

  8. Dark Horse
    Channel an Egyptian goddess similar to Katy Perry's look with her latest character in Dark Horse. Go for gold to purple gradient on the lids and a bright pink lip.

  9. Singer Vibes
    Are you musically inclined? Let your talent shine through with a singer/songwriter vibe, go for a tight pony with textured bangs and don't scrimp on the false lashes!

  10. Retro Nerd
    A blast from the past can be one way to stand out from the other girls, go for beehive hair a la Amy Winehouse and a classic red lip.

  11. Bad Chick
    You can still rock the hair in a different look by going edgy with dramatic eye liner and nude lips.  But don't forget the leather jacket!

  12. Sleek
    Sport a timeless look with this Demi Lovato inspired hair and makeup, part your hair in the middle and pull it back slightly. Emphasize your cheekbones with a bit of bronzer and be sure to draw in your eyebrows to perfection!

  13. Sweet Frills
    If you want to channel something sweet and pretty, go for a modern ballerina look with pink bubblegum lips, soft eye makeup, and a high ponytail with bow accessories.

  14. Fresh and Glowing
    You can also try this perfect spring time look with fresh peachy tint on the cheeks, lips and eyes. And fill in your brows to achieve that distinct Lilly Collins appearance.

  15. Tribal
    Go for that tribal appeal with gold lids and flushed cheeks, this look is easy and can suit any skin tone.
