Amfar held the fourth annual Inspiration Gala at The Plaza last night, so tons of celebrities showed up to the famous New York hotel in their black-tie best. In a see of designer gowns, what really caught our attention was Lindsey Wixon's 1920s-inspired hair and makeup. She gave her curls a super glossy, but not wet, look. And the same went for her lips. It's the latest hair trend (perfect for humid summer nights), so pay attention to our tips below!

GLOSS IT:Shu Uemura Touch of Gloss, $38 Just in time for The Great Gatsby-inspired hair trends is Shu Uemura's melt-in balm that gives you a glossy finish, medium-hold, without any stickiness whatsoever. To use it, emulsify in your fingers and apply it to dry, already styled hair.

PAINT IT:Saint Laurent Rouge pur Couture in Rouge Philtre, $34 Saint Laurent brings together the best of both worlds when it comes to lip color: the texture and shine of a gloss and the long-lasting, deep color of a stain.

FINISH IT:Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray, $38 Told hold all of those glossy curls in place--spray on plenty of Shu Uemura's sheer lacquer.
