Emma Stone Always Does These 5 Things & No One Has Noticed

Emma Stone is that rare breed of celeb who manages to toe the line between aspirational role model and BFF. She's the kind of girl you might go to for career advice (seeing as she's the highest paid actress in the world) and validation on a new haircut.
Sadly, the chance of tapping Stone for advice of any kind seems miniscule, so until we manage to breach her inner circle of friends, we'll have to make do with stalking her red carpet beauty looks. Turns out, there's a lot to choose from: We're talking colorful cat-eyes, throwback hairstyles, and vibrant pastel hues — and those are just three of the five trends she always has on rotation.
Looking to channel your inner Stone? In honor of the star's birthday this Monday, we've rounded up her best looks in the slides ahead.

1. Retro Hairstyles

Emma Stone loves a good throwback moment — especially if it comes in the form of vintage curls. She's often seen on the red carpet sporting glossy waves reminiscent of the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood.

A classic Hollywood wave is smooth at the root and falls into a waterfall of shiny, undulating curls toward the mid-lengths and ends. Need a step-by-step how-to? We created this handy guide to recreating the technique.

2. Blue Underliner

Over the past year, colorful underliner has swept Hollywood and clearly, Stone got the memo. On multiple occasions, she's been spotted using blue eyeliner to define her lower lashline. The versatile trend can be paired with everything from purple shadow to cat-eyes.

Not feeling bright blue? Reach for navy instead. The shade still adds a little unexpected color without feeling over-the-top.

3. Pretty in Pastel

Stone may be known for her smoky eyes (she loves a good smoked-out lashline), but the star often whips out bold colors for red carpet appearances, too — namely of the pastel variety. Here, she paired baby blue shadow with a soft peach lip.

The best part about pastel makeup? You can go as bold or subtle as you like. Here, Stone wore a swipe of matte pink shadow (we love this one) in her crease to complement her cat-eye and red gown.

4. Creative Cat-Eyes

There's a reason everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Alexa Chung has made the cat-eye their signature look: It's a foolproof way to instantly brighten and lift the eyes. Stone loves a cat-eye, too, but rather than stick to neutral hues like black and brown, she mixes it up by employing fun colors like turquoise.

This look is everything we love about cat-eyes and smoky eyes. The hazy wash of winged-out green shadow opens up and lifts, while the layer of bronze shadow on her lower lashline keeps things nice and sultry.

5. Funky Updos

When Stone's not rocking retro hairstyles, she's usually mixing it up with the help of stylist Mara Roszak. From the front, this 'do looks like any old half-pony, but take a peek at the back and feast your eyes on Roszak's intricate bow-like creation.

This double-bun 'do is one of our favorite Stone styles. Separate your hair into two sections at the crown and base of your head. Then create two small buns, fastening with hair pins and elastics as you work. Finish off with some hairspray and you're good to go.
