Ah, New Year's. A time for us all to decide which party to go to and which friends to party with. Should we head to NYC to watch the ball drop? Should we go skiing up in the mountains? House party with some close friends? The decisions are endless, as are the decisions on what to wear. Everybody wants to look glam, damnit, and it can be hard to know just how to pull off that special look. Well, we are here to help. Here are some options to make your decision-making a little more easy.
Make-Up: First and foremost, the right makeup on New Year's Eve is so important. No one wants their eyeliner to run or their lipstick to fade as the night goes on. Make sure you start with a primer to keep that make-up lasting into the wee hours of the night. We like Benefit's That Gal Brightening Face Primer ($29) so give those cheeks an extra glow. If you're going for a bold lip, there's nothing better for NYE than Susan Posnick's Coloressentials line ($19). The lipsticks come in fun, bright colors and is super moisturizing and shiny, plus it's very compact so can fit into the smallest clutch for touch-ups. Make those eyes pop with Lashfully's Lash Appeal Kit ($38). The kit contains two sets of eyelashes with adhesive and tweezers and will provide the most natural and lusciously long lashes for you to don. With the most essential make-up musts out of the way, it's time to move onto what to wear.
Outfit: There are three types of outfits one can wear on New Year's: one that stands out, that's simply classic, or one that's totally different. Nothing screams New Year's like a good sequined dress. So if you want to stand out, pick a fun and flirty color and stick with it. We love BCBG's Maura Sequin Evening Dress ($338) for a look that'll have all eyes on you. Picture this slim fit with those red lips and you will definitely be turning heads. For something you won't find on any other girl, try Bebe's Iris Studded Feather Dress ($198). This dress is classy, sexy, and just a bit different from your typical NYE attire. If you want to stick to classic, nothing is better than a LBD. We love Nasty Gal's Tied Crochet Skater Dress ($48), with just enough embellishment to not be boring.
Accessories: Sometimes accessories can be the most important part of an outfit - they can totally make or break your look. Nobody looks good completely covered in jewels so make sure to pick and choose wisely. We love the simple, yet stunning effect that Sima K Jewelry can add to an ensemble. Pair a Sima K ring with a cuff for just enough sparkle for the evening. Don't forget to grab a clutch and a killer pair of heels and you're all set!
