Celebrity Eyebrows Are Inspiring Us In This Week's Best & Worst Beauty (PHOTOS)

With the start of a new year, most women are itching to try new makeup. While we're all for experimenting with edgier lipstick colors and adventurous eyeliner, none of this matters if you've got jacked-up eyebrows.

The celebs on this week's best beauty list remind us how important brows are to the face. Inspired by Miley Cyrus' bold brows and Aishwarya Rai's perfectly arched brows, we plan on spending this weekend in the mirror with an eyebrow kit.

See which stars are giving us total brow envy (plus more standout hair and makeup) below and tell us what you think.

BEST: Miley Cyrus

If there's one thing that we're copying from Miley, it's filling in our brows to look just like hers. The "Bangerz" singer looks almost angelic with her casual undercut 'do, wispy lashes, contoured cheeks and matte red lips.

BEST: Aishwarya Rai

The L'Oreal Paris ambassador looked breathtaking when launching the brand's new Kajal Magique eyeliner. Rai's smoldering smokey eye balances out her glossy pink lips and black cherry hair color.

BEST: Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge was definitely in the Christmas spirit. We love how she brought a bit of the green from her elegant hat to her eyes with a subtle smokey shadow. And, of course, she amplified her new mom glow with pink blush and lipstick.

BEST: Elisabeth Röhm

We can't stop gazing into the blue eyes of this "American Hustle" actress. The flecks of green metallic eyeshadow makes her eyes pop, and that red-orange lipstick is absolutely stunning with her retro waves.

BEST: Chrissy Teigen

Here's another example of green eye makeup done right. Teigen rang in 2014 alongside her smoking hot hubby (lucky girl!) sporting a peridot smokey eye with her new ombre hair.

WORST: Heidi Klum

This proves that even supermodels have off days. Klum went a bit overboard with the white eyeliner at her waterline. The eye-brightening trick drew unwanted attention to the fine lines on her face.

WORST: Juliette Lewis

Lewis appears to be reliving her high school prom with this sparkly headband and loose ringlets. Her pretty makeup would have worked better with a simple chignon.

WORST: Kim Basinger

We're getting a migraine just staring at the legendary actress' severe ponytail. Basinger's bright red lipstick loses its feminine touch with such a taut hairstyle and menswear-inspired suit.

WORST: Kristen Wiig

We wish Wiig would put a bit more effort into her red carpet looks. Her complexion appears washed out with the face powder, frosty eyeshadow and unflattering lipstick shade.

WORST: Jessica Jarrell

The barely legal pop star has covered up her natural beauty (and not her cleavage) with heavy hair and makeup. Jarrell looks more like a circus clown with those drawn-on eyebrows, purple eyeshadow and red lip color.
