6 Ways to Add Glam, Glitter, Gold to your New Year’s Eve

Looking for that final touch of New Year’s Eve pizzaz?

Here are 6 ways to amp up your look by glazing with gold, shining with sparkle and glamming up with glitter.

IDEA 1 : Grab some false eyelashes that already have glitter happening. There are lots of variations available at Sally Beauty Supply, in many colors and lash styles. These two examples from Andrea (silver sparkles) and Ardell (Black glitter #184) are 100% New Year’s Eve approved!

IDEA 2 : Gotta have some glitter, glow or shine on the nails, right? Here are three ideas, all available at Sally Beauty Supply. “Golden Glaze” by Fingerpaints (top), “Copy Cat” by Fingerpaints (middle), “Gilded” by Nina (bottom).

IDEA 3 : Don’t want to paint your own nails? Going a bit more conservative or classic with your New Year’s look but still want to display a little fun and sparkle? Try some ready-to-go airbrush nails like this cool take on a French manicure from Bella Nails. The package comes with the glue needed to apply the nails and the design adds just a subtle touch of “ringing in the New Year.”

IDEA 4 : Get some glitter lining those eyes! So many choices from pencils to liquid liner to gel crayons. Below are a few options. Femme Couture glitter eye pencil in “silver.” Palladio glitter eye liner in “silver sparkle.” Palladio herbal gel crayon in “gold dust.” Femme Couture glitter liquid eyeliner in “gold” and “pearl.”

IDEA 5 : If you’ve never tried a baked eye shadow, now is the perfect time. Rich color, staying power. A little goes a long way. A perfect color for New Year’s Eve is Femme Couture “Fools Gold.”

IDEA 6 : Last but not least, the lips. Here’s an easy way to sparkle. Apply your favorite lipstick or gloss and grab a few specs of household glitter and just dazzle it up by randomly flicking a little on the lips. Maybe sprinkle some over your whole body?! It’s the one day of the year that, for sure…glitter is golden and so are you. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

HOW TO : Sleek Day Eyes

Sleek Eyes Closed Open

A simple, sleek day eye. Professional, pretty and quick to accomplish!

STEP 1
Apply Flawless Touch Eye Primer to your entire lid – even up to the brow line. The primer will create a smooth, blank canvas for color, help shadow last longer and prevent creases and lines.

HOW TO: Sleek Eyes for a Night Out

There are a ton of holiday parties on the calendar this month, and there isn’t always enough time to create a new makeup look in that short, precious window between work and that night’s event. Luckily, day eyes can easily transition to a sleek and sophisticated evening look with a few simple updates.

STEP 1:

Using the darkest purple in the Femme Couture Smokey Eyes Palette (third down on the left side),  smudge the shadow along your upper lid line, blending with the previous liner. This will create a softer, smokier look. Layer the purple until it reaches the intensity you desire.

STEP 2:

Apply a bright purple (second down on the right side of the palette) across entire lid up to the crease of your eye, blending outward with the brush.

STEP 3:

To highlight those peepers and add a little sparkle, dab the champagne shade in the corners of each eye. This will make you look bright, alert, and ready to celebrate.
