Step 1: Prep the skin with a radiant primer infused with light reflecting liquids (I used Laura Mercier Primer Radiance) to get a head start on the silver and gold complexion.
Step 2: Correct the skin with foundation and concealer; set with powder.
Step 5: Take a matching gold eye shadow and set the pencil for long-lasting wear. Use a soft shimmer that matches the skin tone along the brow bone. Finish top lash line with a final swipe of gold liner.
Step 6: Repeat the same pencil/shadow steps along the lower lash line. Curl and coat lashes in black mascara.
Step 7: Choose a warm rose blush to complement the gold eye shadow.
Step 8: Finish the look with a cheerful holiday red lip with a warm undertone (we used NARS Audacious Lipstick in Lana). Skip the pencil liner for a modern fresh look and apply with a precision lip brush. Blot with tissue, then reapply a final layer for lasting effect.
Step 1: Pull hair into a ponytail on top of head.
Step 2: Separate into two sections. Then, tie a basic overhand knot across the front.
Step 3: Tuck each section around the knot. Then, secure with bobby pins.
Step 4: Press the topknot down and secure into with bobby pins.
