Well didn't Emma Stone steal the show at the NYC premiere of Friends with Benefits? Her teased ponytail, winged-out liner and bubblegum pink lips create the perfect party look and it's one of those easy-to-create looks that's especially good for going from desk to drinks in five minutes flat.
HAIR: To add some texture to help hold the style in place, give your hair a bit of a boost with Evo Haze Styling Powder ($29.95). Part hair in the centre and section off the front strands, about two inches down the part line to give you a guide. Next, section the rest of the hair into two. Leave the bottom section of the hair to one side, but backcomb the other section to give some height to the style. Pull both of those two sections of the hair roughly into a ponytail — just use your fingers, it doesn't need to be too perfect-looking — and secure high on the head, a few inches above the occipital bone (the pointy bit at the back of your head). Next up, use a tail end comb to tease some sections and use a small curling tone to add a few bends into the ponytail and to style the face-framing fringe. Finish with hairspray.

Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust in White Gold ($28) is a great colour match. Now, to get a perfect wing like Emma's try using a product that is already slanted, such as Bloom's Shadow Liner in Charcoal Grey ($25), for a precise winged line. Finish the eye with a brown eye pencil like Jane Iredale Basic Brown Eye Pencil ($43) on the lower water-line and some fake lashes on the outer, upper lash line if you wish. And for a soft pink finish on the lips, try Too Faced's Cupcake Lipstick ($45). Use your finger to dab a little of the colour onto cheeks for a pretty flush, too.
