Never one to shy sway from color, Rihanna paired her see-through crimson gown and hot red hairstyle with a wash of shimmery, lime green shadow. The contrasting combo, while unexpected, created a gorgeous red carpet look that definitely wowed.

Ever since her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson has been kicking it up a notch with her beauty choices. Case in point: This bold, burnt orange eye look. By adding a shot of just-juiced color to her crease, ScarJo turned her ho-hum smoky eye into an edgy and exciting style.

Leave it to Katy Perry to wear not one, but two colorful eyeshadows. While we never though to combine a lilac lid with a green under-eye liner, we have to say we're kind of digging the look. It gives her an angelic, yet still ber-cool appeal.

A dab of bright blue shadow in her inner creases gives Jessica Alba a trendy, yet flattering look. Mixing a vibrant blue hue with a metallic bronze shade really helps to make brown eyes pop.

Don't be scared of pink eyeshadow--it can actually be really flattering, we promise! Take a cue from Kristen Wiig here and try pairing a soft, petal pink lid with a thick, smoky line of hot pink shadow. The two complementary shades combine to give you just the right amount of brightening and definition.

As much as we love Rachel McAdam's bright and sunny eyes, we get that yellow liner is probably a look most women won't want to try at home. For a subtler version of this trend, MAC senior makeup artist Jennifer Karsten says to try drawing a parallel line of yellow shadow right alongside your usual black liner--this will add a hint of color that won't overwhelm the rest of your makeup.

The reason Emma Stone's emerald eye works so well? She kept the color close to the eye, so it's subtle, not garish. To get this look, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey says to use a bright eye pencil to line your upper and lower lashlines, pushing the color into the lashes so there's no gap between your lashes and the line. "You want the liner to be a part of your lashes, not circling your eye," says Bailey.

We love Nicole Richie's modern smoky eye--the purple tones help balance out an otherwise strong look, making it soft and feminine with just the right amount of edge. Try it out on date night to create a sexy gaze he won't be able to take his eyes off of.

We consider this relatively demure for the usually over-the-top Nicki Minaj. This is, after all, the same woman who dyed her hair leopard print to match her Grammys outfit. That said, the glittery turquoise liner on her lower lashline is a genius and slightly tamer way to wear this rainbow trend. Ditch the glitter and you've got yourself a sweet spring look.
