As you might expect, at the 2013 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards, it is all about the dresses, the shoes, and the accessories. Celebrities, models, and designers go all out to show support to the Guccis, Pradas and even the smaller guys -- Phillip Lim, Thom Browne, Proenza Schouler.

But exactly how to do hair and makeup that won't outshine your dress? Kind of an art form.

The key for this year: KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). Think loose waves, loose buns, and minimal makeup. The result was a group of perfectly polished women with their dresses still at center stage.

This concept isn't just for the CFDA Awards though. You can easily try it whenever you've got a party dress or statement accessory you want to show off (like that sample sale number that cost more than your rent). Follow these examples and you'll see how you can finish your look with hair and makeup that works with your outfit rather than against it. Tips worth trying even if your statement dress is more Ann Taylor than Zac Posen.
