We haven’t always been the biggest fans of matching our makeup to clothes, but Ali Larter’s look at the opening party of the CH Carolina Herrera Boutique on Rodeo Drive completely changed our minds. The trick to pulling it off? Don’t go for the exact same hue, “pick a shade within the same color family but go deeper or lighter depending on your mood,” said Larter’s makeup artist Lauren Andersen, who painted the star’s lips with a coat of Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Berry Smooch. “Going with a deeper shade really anchored the look.” Pick up your own tube for just $5 at avon.com.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are heating up the box office this weekend with their latest flick! Returning to her Miss Congeniality days, Bullock once again stars as an FBI agent in The Heat, but instead of competing in a beauty pageant, she’s partnered with a testy, street-smart Boston cop (McCarthy) to bring a ruthless drug lord to justice. Long before she was fighting crime, the star did stunts of a different sort when she was part of her school’s cheerleading squad back in 1982.
