You're standing in front of your mirror, surrounded by discarded clothes, and you have no idea to what to wear. Your phone is ringing thanks to countless phone calls from friends who want to know where you are and what's taking so long, but you know you're still nowhere near ready. To avoid this chaotic situation, refocus your attention next time... Think beauty, instead of clothes. No, I'm not telling you to not wear clothes, what I'm saying is that you should pay more attention to your makeup. Makeup has the ability to transform a regular outfit into something totally unique, and we have a few of our favorite looks below to show you how!

Tip #1: Go Bold (with lashes): Try out Kate Mara's look by layering up on different mascaras. If you're really bold, but still want something natural, try individual falsies. They happen to be really easy to apply and aren't too expensive, making them a great addition to your makeup collection.

Tip #2: Go for the Grey: I tried this look once, and I promise you it actually looks as pretty in real life as it does on Mila Kunis (I know, it's hard to believe, but I swear). To get this look, apply a light grey or silver eyeshadow all over your lid and underneath your lower lashline. Blend a taupe or lavender on top, and add more of the latter shade to the crease, and lower lashline if you want it to be smokier. Line your upper lashline and waterline with black eyeliner and top it off with some mascara!

Tip #3: Embrace Color: Yes, it may seem really intense, and a bit scary, but a little color can be good. Olivia Wilde is able to combine a smokey eye with a hint of purple, and it works. Next time you're doing your makeup, swap out your black eyeliner and look for a color which complements the color of your eyes. For me, it's darker blues, purples, greens and golds (my eyes are brown/hazel which makes for more options), and I love smudging some of these colors on my upper and lower lashlines and finishing off with mascara and a simple lipgloss.

Tip #4: Get Glow: Yes, I might be just be a bit obsessed with Blake Lively, but I honestly think her makeup is always spot on. She's able to rock that effortless, glowy look and it works. If your outfit already has a lot going on, try out this look. Apply a hint of bronzer to the planes of your face, so cheekbones, bridge of your nose, temples, and along the jawline and chin. Make sure to blend well! Finish off with some highlighter on your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and browbones. For eye makeup, apply some champagne shadow to your inner and outer corners and throw on some mascara to get fluttery lashes. Swipe on some lipgloss that's close to your lip color, and call it a day.

Tip #5: Embrace Your Cattiness: By embracing your cattiness I do not mean, be rude or catty, I just needed to use that pun... Sorry for being cheesy, even if I'm not that sorry, I had to do it. Anyways, next time you go out try a cat eye. You can keep it simple and wing your eyeline and call it a day, or you can take a smokey eye to the next level by winging it out slightly. I absolutely love how Jaimie Alexander pulls this look off, and I think it could take a simple black dress or jeans, booties and a casual top to the next level. Just make sure you don't go too overboard, it's not Halloween quite yet!
