Take your party time palette to the next level this season with a little help from the spring runways. By referencing 4 gorj beauty looks from Helmut Lang, Dolce & Gabbana, Rodarte and Jason Wu, you’ll be ready to take on holiday dinners, chic cocktail parties and NYE extravaganzas looking (and feeling) as glamorous as ever.
If glitz and shimmer isn't your thing, you can still look chic and glamorous sans sparkling eye makeup. We adore Helmut Lang's spring '14 beauty look for its minimalist-chic style. Rock a vampy red pucker paired with bold brows and a sleek side part to your next holiday fête. It will look best paired with an edgier, monochromatic ensemble or all-white cocktail dress. Thoughts?

The Haute Headband
There's no easier party pick-me-up than an eye-catching hair accessory. Here, we're feeling majorly inspired by the tousled updos at Dolce & Gabbana's spring show. Whether you're game to channel the look as is, or prefer a sleek and straight mane, the crystal headband is just the add-on to top off your look.

Make an impact with your eyes by mirroring the major makeup look of Jason Wu spring '14. Effortless to recreate, simply coat your lids in a taupe eyeshadow, followed by a light (or heavy, depending on your preference) application of loose shimmer or glitter. For the finishing touch, line your lids with a skinny black liner. Voila! A runway-ready gaze totally worth lusting for. Photo: Jason Wu spring '14 courtest of FirstView.
Larger than life and completely covetable, the side-swept 'dos at Rodarte spring '14 are a no-brainer hairstyle choice. Accomplished with just the right amount of mousse, a blowdry using a round brush and a bristled one to tease the roots, Rodarte nails our evening-appropriate mane game du jour.
