How-To: Lauren Conrad's Hills' Finale Party Makeup

How-To: Lauren Conrad's Hills' Finale Party Makeup

Since so many of you have been writing in and requesting how to get Lauren Conrad's fresh-faced makeup look, I've decided to give you a little treat in honor of the season finale.

This picture is from the finale party, where LC arrived with a perfect coif, sparkly eyes, and a pretty bubblegum-pink pout. For more insight into beauty from The Hills, check out all of my Beauty Quizzes from Season 3!

And for a full list of product and application suggestions,


  • Face: Begin by using a creamy concealer around the eyes and on top of any red areas or blemishes. Next, take a little bit of foundation and dab it on the forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. Blend well (especially along the jawline) using a sponge. Dust a little bit of setting powder to the skin as a final touch.
  • Cheeks: Begin by dusting the forehead, nose, and all around the hairline with a matte bronzer. Next, apply a sheer-pink powder blush such as Bobbi Brown Blush in Nectar to the apples of the cheeks, blending upward along the cheekbone.
  • Eyes: Getting Lauren's icy-hot eyes is easier than you think. The first step is applying a neutral shadow all over the lid. Next, use a black, slightly-shimmery shadow like Shu Uemura Pressed Iridescent Eye Shadow in Black; blend it starting right above your lashes to just under your crease. Using a black-liquid eyeliner such as Flirt! Cosmetics Opening Line in Ebony Edge, carefully line your upper and lower lashes. Create a thicker line on the top lashes and extend it out just a little bit for a catlike-winged effect. Then, take more of the black shadow and apply it over the liner for a smokier and softer effect.

    Apply two coats of black mascara and attach false eyelashes for additional drama. Lastly, take a silver cream shadow like Vincent Longo's Eye Souffle in Argeto and using a Q-tip,carefully dot and blend the shadow to the "V" along the inner corners of your eyes.

  • Lips: Lauren's lip look is all about a pop of sheer color. Try using a bright pink lip gloss such as Benefit Her Glossiness V.I.P. Lip Gloss in Who Are You Wearing and keep reapplying throughout the night!

I agree with Niki Lovebug; way too heavy on the brows. Makes me think of a villain in an old silent movie.

Eww, too much makeup! Her brows are too dark, she has too much foundation, and I don't like the eye makeup, it isn't working for me! :-)

she looks like she's wearing a LOT of foundation, etc, but her eyes are gorgeous.

I really would love to see what she looks like minus the eye makeup minus it all. She's way to overdone for me. I agree she's a pretty girl however I do think she is a tad bit overrated. I would like to see her mix it up a bit perhaps forget the headband.

ofc she's wearing Mark - I should know, because I actually got an internship because of my video reviews on the brand! they were my first REAL makeup, and I've loved them ever since. though I won't lie, I love Benefit's Her Glossiness, too. n.n

She probably is wearing all mark. She loves the on-the-edge eye liner in cleo. One great way to apply liquid liner if you have a shaky hand (like me) is with an eye liner brush. And keep some concealer close by in case of an accident!

It actually looks like she is wearing a ton of makeup, even foundation...I could be wrong. And I don't think she put the eyeliner on wrong, almost famous, it looks pretty good.

Liquid liner is actually really easy to apply. You just have to practice a bit to get use to the flow and to keep a steady hand

She has to have some eyebrow powder or liner to strengthen the lines of her brows...

Umm She is actually wearing all Mark products here. I would actually be willing to wager money on that.

she's the spokeswoman for mark. cosmetics, so I think its fair to say that all (or most) of what she is wearing is mark., which is fantastic since the makeup is not expensive at all and really fun!
