5 Ways To Look Glamorous on New Year’s Eve

Monday, December 31, 2012

 

Make your look as special as the New Year with these glamorous looks and how to get them.

New Year's Eve may be full of clichés (champagne, midnight kissing, party hats and noisemakers) but why not embrace the fun on this mystical winter evening and opt for a little fantasy beauty? Here are five ways:

Go for the gold

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Gold Star is a lustrous metallic that will shimmer with each bat of your eye. It's subtle and spectacular at the same time and while not exactly your usual neutral, won't overwhelm. At Macy's, Auburn Mall.

Sprinkle some pixie dust

Victoria's Secret Gold Fragrant Shimmer Powder brushed on your shoulders, neck, and even arms will have you sparkling AND smelling divine. Your skin will catch the candlelight while giving off a beautiful bergamot and gardenia scent he'll find irresistible. At Victoria's Secret, Auburn Mall.

Hair bling

Add a little sparkle to your hair with Jerome Russell B Wild Hair Glitter. This easy-to-wash-out spray will give your locks a stunning after dark look that won't soon be forgotten. At Walgreens, statewide.

Icy nails

For cool glacial glitter, go for a metallic nail polish. Essie Steel-Ing the Scene is a burnished pewter with just the right edginess. Pop on a fun silver or pearl cocktail ring for added attention grabbing glam. At Ulta, Northborough Crossing.

Opalescent lips

Micronized pearls give Maybelline Color Sensational Pearls Lipstick its sparkling appeal but the creamy formula is made for brisk winter nights. Your lips will be soft, full-looking and subtly frosted with one of ten luminous shades. At Wal-Mart, statewide.

And while we endorse icy loveliness on the holiday season's iconic night of merriment, a little sparkle goes a long way. Opt for just one or two of these suggestions and you'll be as delicious and delicate as a crystal flute of midnight bubbly.
