Lady Gaga has never looked so golden. The pop star turned actress took her new warm complexion to the red carpet and she looked amazing. This look is perfectly bronzed  in the perimeter of her face which is just in the time for the holidays when its cold, but you want to keep a soft glow on the face.

If you are looking for a softer look then look no further than Olivia Culpo’s super soft pink lips. Just a soft hint of pink without being over the top, but its way more color than a nude. Its the perfect amount of pink to balance out her winged eyeliner. This look is ultra romantic and great for an evening holiday party.

Kim Kardashian’s Smokey Eye

Kim Kardashian hasn’t done a super smokey eye in a while, but when she recently attended the 2018 LACMA Art+Film Gala she sported her old eye look– a super gorgeous and intense black smokey eye. If you try (and nail this look) this super sexy look then be ready for all the compliments. The look was courtesy of Kim’s new KKW Beauty Glam Bible. ”Love this Lacma look using the intense black shadow and liner from the new @kkwbeauty Glam Bible, including our lashes and mascara and new lip color and liner.” Check out a general tutorail on Kim’s smokey look.

Gwen Stefani Signature Red Lip

Gwen Stefani Holiday Look

Gwen Stefani is known for her platinum blonde hair, annnnd her rich red lips. While we have seen Gwen change up her makeup looks in recent years, she will always be known for her red lips. And red lips couldn’t be easier. Line lips with a similar red lipliner and pair with a simple eye, just mascara ( or a pretty false eyelash) and you are done. Check out Gwen’s step by step tutorial on her signature lip on Billboard.

Jessica Alba’s All Natural Look

Jessica Alba let her natural beauty shine through at the Baby2Baby event recently. The actress turned entrepreneur flaunted the best no makeup- makeup look. Jessica’s look is pretty simple. A flawless foundation with just a hint of a flirty eye and a soft lip. #NotBasic

To Recreate Jessica’s gorgeous makeup look, start by applying the Everything Primer Glow all over and the Everything Primer Matte to the T-Zone to ensure skin shines in the right places before buffing on Foundation. Brush on the Luminizing Glow Powder in Dusk Reflection to the hollows of the cheeks to add warmth and definition and dab on the Creme Blush in Pink Rose and Plum Berry for a pop of color.

Using the eyeshadow palette apply Iced Cotton to the entire lid followed by Chrome metal and soft Bronze in the crease. Next, create a cat eye with a wet eyeliner brush and Magnetic ink and add some drama with a few coats of the Extreme Lengths Mascara + Lash Primer. Swipe on the Lip Crayon in Sheer Blossom for a nude pout and complete the look by sweeping the luminizing powder in Midnight Reflections across the highpoints and top with the Magic Balm for a dewy finish.

Shay Mitchell’s Vampy Lips

Shay Mitchell's Holiday Look

Shay Mitchell’s vampy lip is similar to Gwen Stefani’s red lip, but it just so much more moody. Its a mood kind of lip look. With so much concentration on the lips, Shay kept her eyes more natural and neutral. Just add a defined brow and some mascara for a simple look.

Camila Cabello’s Double Liner

Camila Cabello Holiday Look

From far away Camila Cabello looks like she is just wearing a basic winged liner but up close its a different story and far from basic. Camila sported a double winged liner for the red carpet and we were in love with her double flick which looked so cool and modern. You will need a longlasting liquid liner to achieve this look–it will just stay put longer than a pencil and will give you a sharp line.

Check out the cool tutorial below.

Kylie Jenner’s Golden Eyes

Kylie Jenner may be the queen of lip kits, but her eyeshadow game is on point. The beauty maven may have made her millions with her lip kits, but we love when she does up her beautiful eyes. For this look, Kylie went golden to accentuate her light brown eyes, but anyone can copy her look. This look is quite of opposite of her older sister Kim’s super smokey eye.

Sabrina Carpenter’s Undone Do’

Sabrina Carpenter Holiday Look

Sabrina Carpenter’s gorgeous updo is elegant and romantic and perfect for a holiday party at work, school, church or just anything in general. This is such a classic look that can go very easily from day to night. We love the loose tendrils framing her face.

Yara Shahidi’s Glammed Up Braid

Yara Shahidi loves to switch up her hair all the time, but we thought this totally glammed up braid was perfect for a holiday party. Although the look appears simple you will need hair extensions if you don’t already have waist length hair. After clipping in a few wefts of hair, you will gather all your hair on the top of your head. Next do a 3 simple braids down the length of the hair, slightly angling your hair to the front. Secure the bottom of your braid and add a fun hair clip to the top of the braid and voila….a cool braided look!

Beyonce’s Old Hollywood waves

Beyonce Holiday Look

We haven’t seen Beyonce in these old Hollywood Glamour braids in years, but this style is perfect for a holiday night out. While this hair takes a little longer to get down pact it’s well worth the sacrifice for beautiful hair. Its definity a hair look for when you have time to dedicate to it.

Zendaya Slicked back low ponytail

Zendaya Holiday Look

When in doubt go simple. Zendaya may have killer makeup skills, but even she knows the value in a simple side part which will accentuate her makeup. This a clean and easy look that comes off super chic. Make sure that the part is off center and extra crisp with gel or pomade. Secure in the back and leave as a loose ponytail or wrap into a low bun. Spray with medium to super hold hairspray.

Rihanna’s Delicious Top Knot

Rihanna’s hair looks delicious, like a sweet donut on the top of her head. RiRi made sure to smooth out the front of her hair before securing at the top of her head. She smoothed down her baby hairsand then twisted her hair into a bun (adjusting to achieve the shape you want) and securing into place with bobby pins.
