Gemma Arterton at Runner Runner premiere: green dress, red lips

by Kathy Saunders -

Gemma Arterton is one of those actors who tends to stick with tried and true beauty looks - aside from the odd foray into earcuff trends - which is exactly what she did for the Las Vegas premiere of her latest film, Runner Runner.

Alongisde Justin Timberlake and his similarly-dressed wife, Jessica Biel, Gemma rocked the red carpet with a classic beauty look and a long dark green dress.

With red lips, a little black eyeliner and an understated updo, the British-born Quantum of Solace star proved to us all that sometimes, the classics are the best when it comes to hair and makeup.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it - copy it!

There are a whole host of reasons why Gemma's red carpet look is something anyone can and should try out. Not only are red lipstick and a subtle amount of eyeliner pretty darn sexy when put together, they also go with just about any outfit.

It's the perfect party look, as championed by iconic beauty queens such as Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and - more recently - Hollywood stars such as Nicole Kidman, Zoe Saldana, Lily Collins and Amanda Seyfried.

So, you would be in good company if you did decide to ditch the nude makeup trend for a night!
