HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LC! Ex-Hillsie and fashion/beauty mogul Lauren Conrad celebrates her 26th birthday today! That, of course, means that this first day of February is a designated team holiday for MTV Style consisting of pastel cupcake trees and a sparkling punch fountain. OK, maybe that's just in our dreams, but we are definitely right there with The Beauty Department, digitally tossing up a cheers to one of our favorite MTV alumna turned fashionista's day of birth. In honor of LC's special day, we've pulled out a few of our favorite beauty looks she's rocked this year.

We're all about Lauren's perfectly poufed high bun, which she recently revealed she sometimes dyes with chalk. The thick lashes, matte complexion, and rich deep red lip complete this prettily prim look. LC's day-to-day beauty look is effortless and glowingly natural. Peachy tones on the apples of her cheeks and a glossy light pink lip let her cascading ombre waves shine. Finally, Lauren's updated nod to old Hollywood glamour was probably our favorite. The asymmetrical finger waves are defined to the point of being unmistakably retro but loose and just disheveled enough to still look contemporary, while the exaggerated winged cat-eye liner and that bright pink pout bring the beauty look into the 21st century.

Lauren. Our early morning beauty experiments would be three times as long without the help of your tutorials, and for that, we owe you the world. Ball hard today, girl. xoxo
