One of the hottest nights to have fun with makeup happens right in the middle of the coldest season. New Year’s Eve: that sultry, late-night, bedazzled splendor of toasts, wishes and broken resolutions is the perfect time to look festive. Letting your light shine on the last night of the year doesn’t necessarily mean just throw glitter on it. In the words of fashion designer, Marc Jacobs: “To me, beauty and makeup and color is like the finishing touch on everything.”
There are sophisticated compromises to be made between fun and glamorous. But not to worry—there’s no reason why the light in your eyes shouldn’t match the bubbles in your glass. The right makeup, hair and nail tips will help you create your perfect New Year’s Eve look. Here are some to get you started.
