Nothing spells NYE style quite like glitzy sparkle. From glittery skirts to sparkly jewels and every eye-catching accent in between, every girl will be stepping out in her best pieces to ring in the New Year in style. In that same glimmering spirit here’s a rounded up some of the best in holiday beauty to get you looking your absolute best this New Year’s Eve.
The eyes are the most fun to dress up for any occasion, especially one that allows a bit of shimmer. While this event calls for some playful colors and sheen, please don’t go overboard and become a walking copy of the Times Square NYE Ball. To get this look all you need are a few beautiful colors from the BareMinerals Vision In Velvet holiday shadow collection ($70, bareessentuals.com). This magnificent set includes twenty irresistible shades (10 matte and 10 satin) that can create stunning looks to fit any style. This look requires the use of the three flattering satin shades; Satin Sage, Satin Plum and Satin Lilac.
Start by priming your lids with BareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer ($18, bareessentuals.com) and apply Satin Sage from the lash line to your crease. With a clean fluffy crease brush, buff Satin Plum onto your outer crease. For a deeper smokey eye, apply extra product to the crease and blend out any harsh lines. To soften the look, apply Satin Lilac to the tear duct with a small pencil brush. Finish by lining the upper lashline with liquid liner. Skinn Cosmetics Felt Tip Eyeliner ($18, skinn.com) is the ideal product to achieve a precise line with ease. The structured felt tip glides along the lash line and helps you achieve a clean wing tip. Best of all, you get an intense black hue with a singular application. Top off your look with wispy, long lashes with Skinn Cosmetics Wow Factor Collagen Volumizing Mascara ($22.50, skinn.com)
A flawless complexion is a must for evening outings especially NYE. For a smooth foundation application make sure to prime the skin with a lasting primer that feels light and silkily sets on the skin. Too Faced Primed & Poreless Skin-Smoothing Face Primer ($30, toofaced.com) is an amazing product as it provides a perfect canvas for foundation and keeps it looking fresh throughout the night. With a small blush brush contour your face with a matte bronzer, bringing the product from your temples to the cheeks and down the jaw line, blending out as you go to avoid strong lines. Dust a light blush in your favorite hue along the apples of the cheek. Lastly, use a small stippling brush to apply a highlighter above the bronzer, down the bridge of your nose and on the cupid’s bow of the lip for an illuminating effect. BareMinerals Ready Luminizer Highlighting Power in Love Affair ($26, bareessentuals.com) provides an incredibly delicate peachy sheen that flatters all skin tones.
Your pucker should be dressed in its best kissable shade for its midnight lip lock. While some may be sporting some daring shades like this fall’s killer oxblood color, a subtle nude will look just as festive. ILIA creamy, natural lipsticks are the perfect choice for this evening. These organic lipsticks have an almost balm-like consistency and offer the perfect satin finish on the lips (and kiss safe!). ILIA lipstick in Humble Me ($24, iliabeauty.com) is the ultimate light neutral lippie that ties the look all together. If you wish to be daring, try a red lipstick with this look. ILIA Wild Child ($24, iliabeauty.com) is the way to go as it can be layered or blotted to a stain-like lip that is sure stand up to multiple glasses of champagne.
Whether it’s subtle or dramatic, make sure to add a touch of shimmer and shine to your NYE beauty look. From fresh highlights to glimmering lids, you will surely illuminate from within. Follow these easy steps and welcome the shiny New Year in style.
