When it comes to holiday beauty, we're overwhelmed with options. From rich lip colors to glittery liquid liners, there's a lot to take in. We're all for kicking things up a notch, but don't want to run the risk of looking like a disco ball at a sophisticated soiree. 

When we ran into beauty maven Lauren Conrad at the Chateau Marmont, we had to get her expert opinion on getting glam for the holidays. Here's what she told us:

1. Just add sparkle. "The holidays are a time to have fun. Play with sparkle and experiment with new colors." Translation: don't be shy!  If you're prone to wearing neutral shadows, try a rich plum shade or a gold-flecked liner for experimentation, but tone down your lip color for balance. 

2. Bigger is better. "Go big with your hair! It's a time to celebrate. I use a line called Big Sexy Hair which keeps my hair soft and manageable and protects against heat damage." 

3. Accentuate your eyes. "There's a liquid eye liner by mark that I love and have used for years and years," the style icon told us. Play up your peepers for a dramatic look. 

And there you have it! Follow these creative tips and you'll be the belle of the ball all season long.
