A Red Lip

Normally a nude-lip fan, Decker makes an exception during the holidays. "I love doing things that feel festive, and a red lip is perfect for that," she says. She wears Lancí´me L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in 160 Rouge Amour ($30.50; lancome-usa.com—pictured) with MAC Lip Pencil in Brick ($16.50; maccosmetics.com).

Once embarrassed by her big, thick brows, Decker now thanks her mom for discouraging her from over-tweezing as a teen. She uses this brow pencil in Medium Brown ($23; macys.com) for natural definition.

Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions

Decker has been getting professional eyelash extensions for six years. But if you're not up for the commitment or cost involved, she agrees that temporary strip lashes work just as well to give your eyes a lift. Try Ardell Professional Natural Wispies ($4; ulta.com—pictured). When she can't make it into the salon for a fill, Decker uses Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($8; target.com) to add fullness and gloss to her lashes.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Decker reaches for liquid liner for its clean, precise look. Her pick: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($19; sephora.com). Getting a straight line takes practice, so Decker recommends using a pencil liner first (easier to erase mistakes), then tracing over it with a liquid version.

Fave4 Texture Takeover Oomph Enhancing Hairspray

Fave4 Texture Takeover Oomph Enhancing Hairspray

Decker admits to going up to three days without washing her hair. (We love her for that.) On the days she styles, she uses Fave4 Texture Takeover Oomph Enhancing Hairspray ($18; fave4.com), which is a texturizer, dry shampoo, and hairspray in one. Like Decker, this hair brand has roots in the South, so it's no surprise they've bottled the secret to big hair.
