Five Steps to Achieve New Year’s Eve Glam

The holiday season is coming to a close – but it’s going out with a bang. New Year’s Eve is the closing ceremony of the year and is a holiday that calls for much celebration.

Some people make plans for the holiday months in advance while others might not have a NYE agenda until moments before the ball drops in New York City. Whether you happen to be a planner or a go-with-the-flow type of person, these five steps will take you from drab to fab in a pinch.

The “Little Black Dress”

Although we probably sound like a broken record, we just can’t tell you enough that you can never go wrong with a little black dress.

‘Tis the season where they come out to play, so pull yours from the back of your closet and glam it up with your favorite accessories.

However, if you’re looking for a new LBD to start 2016 off with a bang, try some fun styles that might include cutouts or sheer pieces of fabric. You’ll be sure to turn heads with this classic garment that will never go out of style.

Complimentary Accessories

The holidays are the perfect opportunity to play with chunky accessories.

Whether you happen to be a jewelry junkie or a plain Jane, this is the time to go out of the norm.

Mix metals and experiment!

Glitter – Everywhere

NYE is one of the few times where dramatic, smokey eyes is welcomed and loved. Glam up your eyes by topping your go-to makeup look with some finely-milled glitter.

If you’re in a time crunch, stop by your local drugstore on the way to the party – glitter can be found in almost any makeup section for cheap. Grab some glitter hair spray, too, if you’re looking for that extra sparkle!

Pops of Color

Reds, Berries, Fuchsias, oh my!

Bust out the color when it comes to lipsticks and shoes. Not only will they steal the show, but they’ll also dress up an otherwise plain look.

The Clutch

Your NYE plans will almost always include a trip to the restroom to powder your nose and touch up your lips.

Pick the perfect clutch to complete your look. They serve as a great accessory and double as convenient storage for your gum, lip-gloss and other essentials.
