Goodbye Hills, hello glamour!

Lauren Conrad, 24, wowed fans at the series' wrap party in Hollywood Tuesday night with her sophisticated Bohemian style. The reality vet's hair and makeup team tell UsMagazine.com how to steal her look.

"Our overall inspiration was a chic California girl with a '60s twist," M•A•C makeup pro Gregory Arlt tells Us.

To get Conrad's dewey complexion, he played up Conrad's natural beauty by using neutral colors.

"Mix a pea sized drop of M•A•C Studio Sculpt foundation with two drops of Jasmine oil on the back of your hand," Arlt tells Us. "The oil will extend the foundation, allowing it to apply harmoniously to your skin."

Begin blending the foundation with a sponge at the center of your face, paying close attention to under the eyes and on the cheeks. Next, apply powder with a large fluffy brush for in a circular motion. Lightly add M•A•C "Margin" blush in a circular motion on the apples of the cheeks.

Arlt chose not to use eye shadow on Conrad, opting instead to play with M•A•C Mineralized Skin Finish powder in "Light/Medium" on her lids.

"I used the lighter one on the lids and under the brows with a dense, stiff brush," Arlt says. "I contoured the crease of the eye with a darker powder and fluffy eyeshadow brush. Apply that on the brow bone in a back and  forth fashion to blend."

When applying M•A•C's "Haute+Naughty" mascara, do so diagonally on the outer lashes, forward on the middle lashes and downward toward the nose for the inner lashes. This will create a wispy, fan-like effect. Next, apply M•A•C "Blacktrack" liquid liner to the eye (thinner toward the inner eye and thicker toward the outer eye for a graphic cat eye). Finish with a dab of clear lip gloss.

To get Conrad's flirty ponytail, hairstylist Kristin Ess created messy waves in all different directions using 1" and 1 1/4" curling irons. She then created a small ponytail in the back of her head using about half of the hair from the middle back. She then took the remaining hair and made a ponytail over the original ponytail and left it slightly messy.

"When you're dealing with thick hair like Lauren's, doubling up the ponytail like that insures that it won't slide down or loosen up throughout the night," Ess tells Us.

To keep her tresses in tact, Ess sprayed a light veil of hairspray over the look, shaking the ponytail as she sprayed it for an extra bit of texture.
