PhotTGIF: It's time to get excited to sleep in, brunch with your BFFs, and try a new look on your night out. But because we know how tempting it is to fall back on your go-to beauty routine, we're recapping the best celebrity hair and makeup looks of the past month — from the red carpet to Instagram. Consider it a gentle nudge in the direction of that glittery liner collecting dust in the bottom of your makeup drawer. Come back every Friday afternoon for your weekly dose of inspiration.

Whether your weekend plans involve a low-key picnic in the park, a black-tie affair, or an '80s night, we've got your hair and makeup covered. Celebrities didn't play it safe with their beauty game this week — and our mood boards are better because of it.

Solange's color-blocked lids couldn't be any cooler or easier to recreate. Dip your brush into a pigmented cream (we love MAC's Paint Pots for this) and sweep it windshield-wiper style from corner to corner, just past the lids.

Grab your bestie and go undercover for the night like Jenna Dewan Tatum and Chrissy Teigen. The only question is: Are you a Mia Wallace or an Alex Owens?

Shay Mitchell
Thank you, Shay, for giving us this recipe for total sex appeal: Start with an I Dream of Jeannie ponytail, mix in two fluttery falsies, and top it all off with a dab of sparkly gold lipstick. Not included, unfortunately: Pat McGrath's magic touch.

Rita Ora
Your three essentials for recreating Rita Ora's Bardot-esque style? A teasing comb, a velvet ribbon, and a really, really good detangler for the morning after.

Kendall Jenner
Jenner does Victorian romance for the modern girl with tousled tendrils falling from a mini ponytail and skin that's highlighted in all the right places.

Jessica Alba
Love Ariana Grande's signature hairstyle more in theory than practice? Alba's half-up take is the perfect compromise. Just remember to wrap the elastic in a strand of hair for a polished finish.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley takes matchy-matchy, mono makeup to a brighter place in shades of soft magenta. The trick: The shiny, semi-sheer lipstick feels more effortless and summery than a matte formula.

Joan Smalls
We're in the final stretch of the summer season and all we want is one more chance to get near water and palm trees. When we do, we're copying Smalls' balmy, baby-pink lips and air-dried hair. (Long live the beauty of frizz!) And — of course — we can't forget a baseball cap for extra sun protection.

Lily Aldridge
We're suckers for sparkle — especially when it's done in a fresh way — which is why we're loving this look. Take Aldridge's lead this weekend and dip your finger into a jar of loose glitter from the craft store, then press it onto your lids. Pro tip: A base product like MAC Mixing Medium will help hold the flecks in place. And don't worry too much about technique; a small scattering is enough to make you really twinkle.

Sophie Turner
The Game of Thrones actress' bronze-y, pinky makeup palette is gorgeous, but it's that temporary kiss mark tattoo on her collarbone that's won our hearts. Beauty girls, unite!

Shanina Shaik
Red lips, a thin line of black along the upper lashes, and flowing waves are a recipe for old Hollywood glamour. But, if you want to take things in an edgier direction, all you need to add is a little leather and a slit of skin.

Peyton List
You can score List's brunch-worthy updo in a flash. Divide your hair in half horizontally, then section the top out of the way. Divide the bottom into three sections and braid each up to the back of the crown. Gather the ends of the braids, then grab your top section, and wrap everything together into a tight, high knot. That alone is enough of a statement, but if you want to go big with red lips and lashes, too, we're fully in support.

Keri Hilson
The singer piled on the mascara until her lashes were thick, voluminous, and even a touch clumpy (in a good way!) on top and bottom. If you're feeling bold, why not add two rows of falsies? Hey, Twiggy did it!

Bryce Dallas Howard
Hairstylist Adir Abergel calls this an "architectural take on a ponytail," and it's so simple to do. Just gather your hair into a ponytail at the nape, but don't pull it all the way through on the last loop. Then, grab a bobby pin (or gold barrette if you're feeling fancy) and pin the inside of the resulting loop flat against your head.

January Jones
"The '90s called me and I picked up," is how Jones captioned this Instagram post of her matte, brick-red lips and smudgy, slept-in smoky eyes. Brush up your brows, flip your hair, and hit the town.

Rita Ora
Gold accents would be the obvious way to celebrate the Olympics this weekend, but we're taking the torch from Ora. Her dip-dyed ponytail is on fire, and you can get the look for one night only with temporary paint or clip-in streaks.

Ariana Grande
Grande revealed a major hair change on social media last month, but it wasn't until this week that we got the full reveal. Her new bangs are giving us fringe envy, and were perfectly paired with soft makeup and her favorite high pony. [Ed. note: Should I get bangs?]

Margot Robbie
We've been keeping close tabs on the Australian actress' most noteworthy beauty looks, and her appearance at this week's world premiere of Suicide Squad was no deviation from her killer track record. Moreover, the seemingly effortless low bun is giving us the best sort of hair inspiration — the achievable kind!

Cara Delevingne
At the same premiere, Delevingne also made waves — and we're not just talking about her glam, Old Hollywood 'do. She paired matte, red lips with super-sparkly shadow, and we applaud the actress' beauty gusto yet again.

Salma Hayek
Gracing the stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past Tuesday, Hayek opted for a peony-pink tint on her lips, cheeks, and lids, proving that mono makeup is still very much alive and well.

Selena Gomez
Selena has us convinced that big, long hair will always be en vogue. Who else has blowout envy right now?

Nina Dobrev
Copy this sleek side-braid and pair it with bold, red lips for your next night out — the combo will have you oozing elegance and takes no time at all. Win-win!

Cara Delevingne
If there's ever an excuse to break out your makeup superpowers, it's Comic-Con. Makeup artist Molly Stern swept cobalt-blue, winged liner on Delevingne, which — when paired with her knit top — made for a cool Star Trek vibe. (Two shots of Delevingne in one slideshow? We told you she's been killing it lately!)

Mila Kunis
Hit the refresh button on your standard half-up style by wrapping a thin section of hair from the ponytail around the elastic and down an inch, as hairstylist Renato Campora did on Kunis for the premiere of Bad Moms. Secure it in place with a bobby pin, then finish with a shine mist.

Margot Robbie
Another shot of Robbie from her press tour for Suicide Squad — and perfect weekend beauty inspo. To wit: If a mermaid crown is too much for you, the next best way to channel a magical sea babe is with beach waves, fishtail braids, and iridescent orange eyeshadow.

Kendall Jenner
Hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons took the words right out of our mouths in his Instagram caption of this look: "Chic AF." Tell us, when does a red-lip-and-topknot combo not work?

Justine Skye
Since you can't avoid the heat this weekend, you might as well make it your BFF and embrace dewy shine. Add a slick, clear lip gloss over your signature red, then highlight your chest and shoulders with shimmery body oil.

Teresa Palmer
Hairstylist John D was behind the actress' gorgeous braided ponytail — and the style is actually easier to copy than it looks. Mist damp hair with salt spray, then roughly blowdry it with a diffuser. Start creating a regular French braid down the back of the head (don't worry about making it perfect; this style looks cooler when messier), stopping at the nape. Tie it off with an elastic, and you're ready for brunch.

Chanel Iman
This is the perfect style for getting your hair off your face on a hot summer night. Grab a small chunk of hair from each side of your center-part and weave a diagonal cornrow (pulling pieces under instead of over) toward the back of the head. Once you reach behind the ears, finish the braids and secure each with a small, clear elastic.

Gigi Hadid
Has anyone ever made the case for matching your manicure to your makeup as convincingly as Hadid does here? We think not.

Zendaya
When you're all dressed up in your finest party attire, but also kind of want people to think you don't give a damn, take a page out of Zendaya's playbook. Spray your hair with texturizer, pile it high into a knot, and encourage flyaways and short pieces to fall as they may.

Halston Sage
Pairing black, white, and red is a little predictable. Which you're not, obviously. This time, try deeper lips in the purplish-red family and keep your skin bare and highlighted.

Shay Mitchell
Big hair is bigger than ever — and Mitchell's version couldn't be more envy-inducing. Bonus points if you wear big hoops, too.

Kendall Jenner
When she wasn't sweeping her hair back, Jenner was wearing cool rocker waves with tons of shine. But we especially love her lash look — which requires nothing more than a killer lengthening mascara and some tightlining skills.

Mila Kunis
The actress let all her hair down — and took us back to the days of That '70s Show — with her flowy, floral top and big, brushed-out waves.
