“When spending time with friends and family over the holidays, I like to look effortlessly chic and ready for any photo op. Nude and blush tones are a big trend this season, so I chose a pair of gray skinny jeans to complement the leather turtleneck top and cream-colored coat. Slip-on sneakers with metallic accents are cool and comfortable.”<br />

“For those who aren’t trying to recreate red carpet hair for a holiday party, I would recommend one of my favorite easy, no-fuss looks. It can be done with almost all hair types and styles, using minimum product and bringing out your hair’s natural texture and movement.”<br />
<br />
<b>Get the Look:</b><br />
1. Lightly apply <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/50/foundation-mist/award-winners:true' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a> all over clean, towel-dried hair. Add a dime-size amount of <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/51' target='_parent'>Gel Sérum</a> throughout the hair. Comb the product through from roots to ends.<br />
2. Put your preferred hairstyle in place—add a part, comb the bangs down, loosen the crown of the hair. <br />
3. Blow-dry the roots, top and crown smoothly using a brush of your choice. Just after each section, while the hair is still hot, use your hands to cool down and roll it into the damper part of your hair to slightly revert its texture. This will help blend the two textures together.<br />
4. Continue to use your hands to smooth, scrunch and encourage any waves or curls that you may have. Let the rest of your hair air-dry.</i>

“I was inspired by an evening look with Cara Delevingne because it really focused on bringing out the eyes. It's perfect teamed with a nude, matte lip and slightly tousled hair.”<br />
<br />
<b>Get the Look:</b><br />
1. Apply a natural base to the skin. Using an angled blush brush, contour the cheeks with a soft bronzer. “Remember that bronzer is used to enhance the features, so it shouldn't be applied over the whole face,” noted Blondie.<br />
2. Apply a warm, brown eye shadow to the eyelid with a flat eye shadow brush. Follow up with a soft, fluffy eye shadow brush and a chocolate brown eye shadow for more definition and a slightly smoky look.<br />
3. Softly apply the chocolate eye shadow under the eye with a pencil brush.<br />
4. Line the waterline of the eye with brown pencil eyeliner. Follow with the same eyeliner to line the top lash line.<br />
5. Apply brown mascara to the top and bottom lashes.<br />
6. Finish with a nude matte lipstick that complements your skin tone.</i>
