Head-to-Toe Holiday Looks

The holiday season brings plenty of opportunities to show off your personal style. This is your chance to dazzle! We’ve put together some head-to-toe looks to get you party and event-ready.

The Dress: Metallic gold polka dots dance across a black ground, giving this A-line dress from Vince Camuto a luxe look. The pleated skirt flatters most figures while the short length appeals to your flirty, fun side.

The Rest: Play up the metallic shine of this dress with the sophisticated goldtone pave drop earrings from Vince Camuto. Go sky-high with these Dyvine T-strap platform pumps from Steve Madden that visually lengthen your legs. Smooth any figure flaws with Tight-End shaping tights from Spanx and comfortably shape and slim  your tummy, hips, thighs and rear.

Add some starlet glamour to your look with the powder pearl eye trio from Bobbi Brown. As the night goes on, add a little coverage with a coordinating Vince Camuto feather caplet with red carpet-worthy black faux feathers.

Shop the look: Vince Camuto A-line Dress, Vince Camuto Goldtone Pave Drop Earrings, Steve Madden Dyvine T-strap Platform Pumps, Spanx Tight-End Shaping Tights, Bobbi Brown Powder Pearl Eye Trio and Vince Camuto Feather Caplet.

The Dress: This JS Boutique dress outshines the Christmas lights at the office cocktail party with dazzling sequins.  Royal blue glitters with every step, mimicking the beauty of a starry night sky.

The Rest: Old friends silver and blue meet when you wear these Julie pumps from Gianni Bini with allover glitter. Continue the theme with deco-inspired blue and silver drop earrings from Cezanne.

Emphasize eyes with the help of MAC’s Fluidline gel liner, Lancome’s Definicils Precious Cells High Definition Amplifying Mascara and Bobbi Brown’s Caviar & Oyster shadow collection.

Shop the Look: JS Boutique Dress, Gianni Bini Julie Pumps, Cezanne Drop Earrings, MAC Fluidline Gel LinerLancome Definicils Precious Cells High Definition Amplifying Mascara and Bobbi Brown Caviar & Oyster Shadow Collection.

The Dress: Lustrous floral beading and chiffon combine to create this resplendent gown from Adrianna Papell. A one-shoulder silhouette creates drama, while a draped sleeve adds timeless grace. The long, slightly flared skirt mirrors classic movie star elegance.

The Rest: Glisten down to the floor with these jewel sandals from Gianni Bini with rhinestone accents. Keep the silver sparkle going with Nadri crystal teardrop earrings.

Start the night off right with a glowing face to match your dress with MAC Prep + Prime Skin lotion.  Color Design Infinite 24-Hour Longwear Eye Shadow from Lancome gives you shimmering eyes without the worry of turning into a pumpkin at midnight. This luminous color stays true for 24 hours without creasing. Play up your pout with vibrant color from Dior with this Limited Edition Diorific lipstick — it even comes in a luxe vintage-inspired gold case.

The Rest: A row of studs evoke edgy shimmer on these equestrian-inspired Billie boots from Arturo Chiang. Just as sequins and beads enchant on an ornate dress, these studs complete the casual look with style.

Your face will stay flawless all day with Double Wear Stay-in-Place makeup from Estee Lauder. Its lightweight and comfortable formula stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity and nonstop activity. Add a pop of color with the high shine of Origins Liquid Lip Color and high-potency hues of the Limited Edition Fade Resistant Gloss Shine nail polish from Lancome Vernis in Love.

Twilight & Turquoise: Inspiration for the Newest Bobbi Brown Collection

Bobbi Brown’s latest collection, Desert Twilight, was inspired by end-of-day light in the desert and rich southwestern turquoise. The lovely palette transitions effortlessly from summer to fall and creates a flattering, light-catching look.

We love the Bronzer/Blush Duo with its warm and tawny glow. The new limited edition nail polishes, aptly named Turquoise and Twilight, make your manicure the perfect season-spanning accessory. The Desert Twilight Eye Palette contains 8 shades that complement most skintones. Feeling bold? The Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Blue Moon will add a bright pop of color to your look.

To learn more about the inspiration behind this limited-edition collection from Bobbi herself, check out this video.

Bronzers: Get a Sun-Kissed Glow

One of our favorite beauty products to use for summer? Bronzers. They give you a healthy glow, add a touch of delicate shimmer and create face-flattering contour.

Products to try: 1. Lancome Star Bronzer Long Lasting Bronzing Powder Natural Glow 2. Too Faced Peach Leopard Bronzer 3. Guerlain Terra Soleia Tan Enhancing Bronzer Face Decollete

Tool: 4. MAC 150 Large Powder Brush (it’s less dense than a bronzer brush so it won’t pick up as much product)

Application: Sweep the bronzer across your hairline, temples, cheekbones and jawline. Dust a tiny bit over your nose, collarbone and (if your are wearing your hair up or pulled back) over the tops of your ears. Doing this will give you that lightly kissed-by-the-sun look. If you choose a product that has added shimmer you can even sweep it across your shoulders when you wear something strapless for an added touch of light-catching shine.

Products to try: MAC Bronzing Powder, Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star, Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder

Tools: Studio Gear #15 Angled Bronzer Brush, Dior Backstage Cheek Brush, MAC #109 Small Contour Brush


  1. Starting with your bronzer brush and bronzer, suck in your cheeks as hard as you can and make a “fishy” face. Apply your bronzer in the hollow area this creates. Guide your brush upwards along the curve of the hollow. It should be similar to the line and angle of your jaw.
  2. Now, get your blush and blush brush. Give yourself a big smile in the mirror and apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks (the apple is where your cheeks poof out the most when you smile) and then sweep it up towards your temple.  Next, without adding any additional blush to your brush, blend it in with your bronzer to smooth harsh lines. If you move your brush in small circles, you will achieve a natural-looking blend.
  3. Lastly, get your powder brush and highlight color. Dust a small bit (a little goes a long way) right below the eye and onto the cheek bone. If you smile again your cheekbones are easy to find — it’s the flat part above the apple. Pull the brush out towards the temple, and you are finished. Just like that, you have a contoured and defined cheek!
