Just one quick glance at this week's roundup of the best celebrity beauty looks tells us everything we need to know about up-and-coming hair and makeup trends. Keen to know what's on the ever-so-beautiful horizon?

Long, lustrous hair is in, so if you've got it, flaunt it — just like Sofia Vergara and Kristen Stewart did over the week. And eyes? Well, if they aren't making statements, we don't know what is. Click through the gallery to see who rocked some serious eye art recently, and discover exactly what needs to be on your beauty radar now. Go on, it's so pretty in there!
