All dressed up and nowhere to go. Or is it the other way around? New Years Eve is the social event of the season to show off your new goodies from Christmas. Especially your new make up. For all you girls out there wanted to dress to impress this year, you still need killer makeup to complete the look! Here are a few simple things to vamp up your everyday makeup.
Winged Eyeliner: Yes, the biggest trend of 2014 was winged eyeliner. That doesn’t mean that it’s too old to ring in the new year. Take something classic and give it a little twist. Instead of one wing, make two. Make the wing longer, bolder, or even a neon color. Show your girls that you don’t just follow trends, but makes them.
Smokey Eye: Nothing beats a nice dramatic smokey eye. New Years Eve is the perfect time to pack on the dramatic color and make a statement.
Bold Lip: If you just aren’t into the bold eyes or sparkly dresses, bold color lips are a great feminine touch. That doesn’t mean red though. Although red is classic, purple and deep burgundy are not only different but add more drama to your look.
Glitter: New Years Eve is the night you bring out the shimmery and glittery clothing in the back of your closet. If you do not have these New Year’s Eve staples though, you can always incorporate in your makeup. Glittery eye shadow, eyeliner, or lip color is just enough shimmer to add a little shine to your look. Avoid body glitter however. This isn’t third grade, or a strip club.
Crazy Colors: Go nuts with color. Try some neons if you are wearing a LBD. Color can make your makeup pop.
Fake Eyelashes: This is a special occasion! If you have short eyelashes, plop some fake ones on when mascara just isn’t enough.
Nudes: If you aren’t into dramatic makeup, don’t sweat it. Stick with a beautiful nudes and pinks to highlight your natural beauty. The Naked3 Nude Pallet has a great range of colors that are warm and subtle.
No matter what your style, New Year’s Eve is the time to experiment and have a little fun. End the 2014 right with a little shimmer and shine!
