New Years Eve Glam

Posted by Marielle T on

Pop, clink, fizz.

In less than two short days, come midnight, that will be the sound heard round the world as 2014 turns into 2015 and we begin an exciting New Year. It’s the perfect opportunity to start fresh, make resolutions, and celebrate the passing year. It also happens to be a great opportunity to break out sequins, glitter and all things gold to go all out looking gorgeous.

With that in mind, this final blog post of 2014 features three different ways to style sparkles and glitter so you can turn heads as the ball drops on New Years Eve.

                                              VINTAGE HOLLYWOOD GLAM 

This look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe herself, with a flowing halter style dress, is best styled with 3 Hollywood must-haves:

Big Blown Out Hair: Bumble and Bumble All-Style is the perfect hair treatment for allowing your to blow-dry like a professional without weighing down your locks, leaving you with nothing but shine and perfectly coiffed hair. Then simply back-comb your crown with a teasing brush for extra volume and spray with B&B Dryspun Finish to give you impossibly sexy, bouncy hair.

A Shimmery Glow: Especially when wearing white, make sure you bring a bit of colour to your checks and eyes. We love the RMS Shimmer Shadow, for its creamy and easy to apply formula.

Lashes for Days: New Years Eve is the perfect occasion for false lashes. Smoke & Mirrors lashes will turn heads and perfectly match this timeless look, making you as memorable as vintage glam.

                                                          BLACK TIE FORMAL


Black on black sequins in the perfect way to wear something with glitter to a formal night out. And since the dress will be grabbing so much attention keep the accessories and make-up minimalistic with the exception of one stand-out feature.

Nailing It: Jin Soon’s Tuxedo Manicure collection was made for New Years Eve. With bold neutrals and confetti glitter, it will set off your dress by complimenting the glitter, without ever looking overdone.. It’s simply the perfect glitter polish for the woman with impeccable taste.

                                                                THE IT-GIRL 

This look is as one-of-a-kind as you are, featuring a white glitter top with embellishments and detail that will make you the shining center of attention at any party.

Neon Angel: Speaking of unique, break the norm with a bold neon pink lip, daring to be different than the expected bold red lips that have ruled the holiday season. Ilia Neon Angel not only looks stunning on everyone, but like all Ilia formulas moisturizes to give you a flawless soft lip.

                                                                 THE DETAILS 

The devil is in the details, and so don’t get caught underprepared when prepping for your big night out. These three simple products will ensure your night goes off without a hitch.

Best Face Forward: Masker-Aide moisturizing linen sheet masks will ensure your makeup goes on smoothly to a well moisturized, glowing complexion.

Bronze Goddess: Unless you spent the last month in Mexico, you could probably use a little shimmer and bronzing on your legs, so you resemble the bronze goddess you were at the end of August. This must-have will transform you into that summer stunner in less than 5 minutes.

Pucker Up: As the year clicks over and you look to find someone to share the first kiss of the New Year with, you’ll be happy you remembered to brush your teeth. Marvis toothpaste‘s flavours tend to linger so your breath will still be fresh and sweet come midnight.
