It worked, and equally convincing were the cases Uzo Aduba and Kate Hudson made for vibrantly-hued eyeshadow and short bobs, respectively. Click through to see what we mean, and consider bookmarking some of these for the next time you’re in search of some inspiration.

Was Uzo Aduba smiling because her picture was being taken or because her teal eyeshadow and nude lip looked so good? We're guessing both.

For anyone who's on the fence about cutting their hair short, let this pic of Kate Hudson serve as a reminder that it could be your best look yet. It's certainly one of hers.
