    a messy bun worth mentioning.

    If you're as sick of celebrities looking way too "done up" on the red carpet as we are, you'll be inspired by January Jones' last appearance. Not only was she rocking a denim jacket, but she threw her hair up in a messy bun and called it a day. We commend her for not trying to hard, but her lazy-cool style raises another good point: the right kind of sleek makeup makes all the difference.

     STYLE IT: Scrunci Elastics, $2.69 All that you'll need for this one is a good 'ol hair elastic and some not-so-fancy styling skills. First gather all of your hair in you hand--like you're about to put it in a PONYTAIL ponytail. Next, wrap that almost-ponytail pony tail all the way around your grip, so that it's in the shape a bun. Then use the elastic to secure the bun and give it shape. After that, loosen the bun with your fingers to get the messy effect.

    Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder & Brush Set, $59 After using a mattifying foundation, set it with powder and a brush for a super dry look like January's.

     PAINT IT: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red, $6.39 Her all-matte theme continues on her lips--it's the opposite of shiny and glowy, but it's the perfect match for her low-key look.
