I loveeee ( like loooovveee ) New Year’s Eve.

It’s so fun to get dressed up & feel all girly especially knowing the next day is a new year/fresh start.

And honestly, there’s something refreshing about a new year while you’re rocking glitter & feeling confident.

When it comes to makeup/hair/outfit on New Year’s, I’m veryyyy specific.

Typically I go for Marilyn-esque hair, a red lip, a little glitter, BIG ( BIG/HUGE/FLARED) lashes, a pop of gold, a flowy skirt, & a glass of bubbly.

For this NY look I curled my hair two days before, slept on it, brushed it out a little bit, & sprayed it with a bunch of hair spray ( totally feeling a deep, deep side part for 2015 ).

For my makeup: I used this red lipstick & Kylie Jenner-over lined my lips with this liner. I LOVE this red lipstick because it doesn’t do that flake-y thing…no one wants flaky, New Year’s lips.

Ok, so LASHES ARE KEY. I’ve been using Urban Decay’s ‘Perversion’ for the past six month ( see: totally used bottle, lol ) & it’s literally the best mascara I’ve ever used. If you’ve read The Skinny Confidential Book you know I like to prime my lashes, curl them, add mascara, & repeat so the mascara needs to be the ‘right mascara.’ Meaning it can’t be clumpy or gooey. This mascara’s texture is a serious dream come true.

For an extra pop this NYE I’m thinking of trying these fake lashes with a pop of glitter. Fun right? Sometimes I’ll even cut the lashes in half for a more flared look.

Soooo, here’s specific directions for makeup:

1.) add primer, foundation, & bronzer ( a little contour never hurt a flea ).
2.) fill in brows.
3.) add red lipstick AND THEN lip liner. I like to do it the opposite way!!
4.) prime lashes, curl, add mascara, repeat.
5.) use fake lashes to capture that flirty, flared look.
6.) add a little silver glitter underneath the lower lash for a total NYE look.
7.) sprinkle a little clear glitter on your chest or mix it with arm/leg lotion for some extra sparkle!

Outfit-wise I’m OBSESSED with the gold-lamé look. It’s sort of 80’s but at the same time classic. By the way, this top isn’t a top…it’s a leotard!! To complete the look I added some Nippies ( because duh ) & a black flowy skirt, & an arm band.

Sooo ta-da, that’s how I get New Year’s Eve ready!

Would love to hear: what’s your favorite NYE look?

CHEERS!
