Tis the season to be glamorous, so The Daily is counting down the “12 days of Christmas beauty.” Consider these the hautest holiday looks to get you through every occasion.

Day 5: On the fifth day of Christmas, my beauty ed. said to me, “Behold! Five golden tiaras!”

The Look: Crowning Glory

Get It: A simple way to up your holiday glam is with an ornate hair accessory. We’re partial to the gilded crowns spotted on the Dolce & Gabbana Fall runway, paired with blushing cheeks and pink pouts for a youthful touch. To complete this angelic look without making it too precious, add a Bardot-esque cat eye with liquid liner.

Wish List: TIARAS: Dolce & Gabbana crystal-embellished tiara ($3,195), mytheresa.com; Erickson Beamon Rington gold-plated Swarovski crystal headpiece ($930), net-a-porter.com; Jennifer Behr Marisol Headband ($750), bergdorfgoodman.com; Siman Tu Gold Three Flower Tiara ($1,898), sophiescloset.com; Eugenia Kim Autumn Leaf Cocktail Headband ($170), eugeniakim.com; EYES: Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancing Liquid Liner Pen in Black ($48.50), trishmcevoy.com; CHEEKS: La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow ($70), laprairie.com; LIPS: Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Raspberry ($16.50), clinique.com

Day 4: On the fourth day of Christmas, my beauty ed. said to me, “A blue smokey eye is eas-y.”

The Look: Dramatic Eyes

Get It: Add a four shadow quad to your beauty arsenal to create a strong smoky eye for cocktail hour.  Dark glittery hues – blue is a fresh take on black – make for a knock out statement.  Layer the darker shade building it up gradually to the lower lids and under eye and finish with a dust a of silver at the outer rims. Finish with lashings of black mascara and keep the lip neutral. 

Wish List: PALETTE: Givenchy Prisme Quatuor in Impertinece ($58), sephora.com; SHADOW: Tom Ford Eye Color Duo in Crushed Indigo ($60), tomford.com; SHIMMER: Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Silver Moon ($33), bobbibrowncosmetics.com

Day 3: On the third day of Christmas, my beauty ed. said to me, “How about updating your classic French mani?”

The Look: Graphic Tips

Get It: While everyone is donning the typical snowy white tips, play up your nails with a statement (and easy to create!) French edge. Apply a coat of a clear or natural shade base like Essie Mademoiselle. Then make a reversed “V” shaped line in the middle of each nail using one coat of a bold-colored polish (like the berry red, above, seen at Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall show). Recreate the same line using a coat of black or even white polish depending on how you want to offset the colorful shade or match your festive attire. Finish with a top coat to seal, and voila!

Wish List: BLACK: Christian Louboutin Nail Colour in Kohl ($50), us.christianlouboutin.com; RED: Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Rita ($18), marcjacobsbeauty.com

Coming tomorrow: A day-to-night quad palette
