Celebrities Prove Healthy Skin Is Always In On This Week's Best & Worst Beauty List (PHOTOS)

Forget Makeup -- Celebs Show Us The One Thing That Can Make Your Face Look Gorgeous

We spend a lot of time recreating the makeup looks worn by our favorite celebrities. But if we had to choose just one thing to have, it would be their healthy skin. (Having a Hollywood dermatologist on speed dial couldn't hurt either.)

This week, stars like Emma Roberts, Keira Knightley and Lupita Nyong'o left us absolutely speechless with their radiant skin. And we aren't ashamed to admit that we're totally envious of mommy-to-be Kerry Washington's glow.

Marvel at these healthy celebrity complexions below (plus see more statement-making beauty).

BEST: Emma Roberts

Roberts is channeling a young Jennifer Aniston with this new asymmetrical bob haircut. Her bold brows, lush lashes, glowy skin and pink lips round out this fresh look.

BEST: Lupita Nyong'o

The "12 Years A Slave" star lands on our best beauty list for the umpteenth time thanks to her luminous complexion, which she's accentuated this time around with a neutral smokey eye and burgundy lipstick.

BEST: Keira Knightley

It should be a crime to have skin this perfect. Knightley's casual updo, smoldering eyeliner (with a hint of sparkle) and bright orange lips make for our ultimate best beauty look of the week.

BEST: Kerry Washington

Sure, this "Scandal" star's face is contoured to perfection. But it wouldn't stand out as much if her skin tone was naturally dull. Washington's graphite smokey eye makeup and raisin lip gloss add the finishing touches.

BEST: Gemma Chan

The English fashion model-turned-film star's center-parted locks are super lush and shiny. And Chan's brunette hair color pops against her milky complexion and matte red lips.

WORST: Kelis


We rarely see Kelis on the red carpet, but we couldn't miss the singer-songwriter in these big curls, frosty eyeshadow, dramatic winged eyeliner and nude lip. Paired with the oversized earrings and fringe jacket, this look reminds us of a bad Diana Ross costume.

WORST: Ashley Roberts

There is a lot going on with the former Pussycat Doll's hair and makeup. From the grayish-blonde slicked-back hair and wild brows to the misplaced bronzer and faded purple lipstick, we have to wonder if Ashley looked in the mirror before heading out.

WORST: Lady Gaga

Outlandish is Lady Gaga's thing, but even this look is too far out there for the pop star. Her silver braided wig looks like a mop, and those green crystals on her face are just tacky. But we do love her glossy red lips.

WORST: Claire Danes

Danes could play a character in a remake of "The Stepford Wives" with her overdone retro hair. The 34-year-old actress' skin tone looks washed out with that icy blue eyeshadow and unflattering shade of orange lipstick.

WORST: Juliette Lewis

We highly doubt Lewis was going for George Washington-esque hair, but she nailed it! The dated hairstyle and heavy makeup bring unwanted attention to the fine lines and wrinkles on her face (something every woman can relate to).
