In the morning, splash your face with ice water for instant radiance. Build a deep tan that looks natural by applying self tanning lotion the night before an event and applying bronzing liquid to the high parts of the face. When you're tan, make sure your foundation doesn't appear too muddy or too orange. Tinted moisturizer is the best bet for women who don't have a lot to cover.

Give your eyeliner and shadow maximum intensity and staying power by painting on a layer of primer and layering, layering, layering. Begin with black pencil liner to act as a stencil for the next layer of liquid and set it with black powder, applied wet or dry with a stiff, slanted eyeliner brush. Stick to a shadow palette that flatters: taupe, gold, bronze and navy blues look brilliant on any blond.

look isn’t complete without lacquered lips. Remember, lots of gloss looks fetching, but keep the color subdued.

Volumizing shampoo and conditioner add bounce, but don’t use them daily as they tend to cause dryness. To get hair like Gretchen Rossi, blow dry with a paddle brush in the opposite direction of growth for maximum root lift and put some bend in your bangs with a large Velcro roller. Sleep on a satin pillowcase overnight for buttery-soft strands. --Stephanie Simons
