As the ball drops in Times Square, you don’t want to have dropped the ball on what you choose to wear on New Year’s Eve. If you need a little inspiration as to how to shine this New Years Eve, you’ve come to the right place. An A-Listers budget may be out of your reach, but it doesn’t mean their style has to be and a little sparkle can make us feel like a million bucks. Without going too overboard, you can add shine without shame in a few simple ways.
Back in middle school, glitter was the most-used product in our make up bag. Whether it was hair mascara, lip gloss, or eyeshadow, nothing was too glitzy or shiny. Even as adults, our love of the sparkly stuff has endured the years and there’s no better time than now to rock glitter makeup again. The key to wearing sparkly makeup as an adult without looking like you’re trying to relive your teenage days: It’s all about moderation. Too much glitter on the eyes can result in an animated effect. Instead, opt for a translucent gloss with micro-fine sparkles for a chic look that won’t look cartoonish when paired with the rest of your makeup.
You can also accomplish your glitter goals by pairing your glitter makeup and accessories with neutrals. I’m a fan of wearing all black with my accessories which is why I went with this black romper.
Take It From The Top
Step away from the everyday staples and add some sparkle to your life without going over the top with a glittered hem or frill. If you are looking to make a big impression, go for a top full of sequins to ensure you are the centre of attention as the countdown begins! You could even wow your co-workers by adding some shimmer to your shift. Who says work has to be routine? Always remember though, if opting to sparkle on top, pair with black jeans or trousers to ensure you don’t go overboard with opulence!
All That Glitters
With advances in technology, it has become increasingly difficult for the naked eye to differentiate between natural diamonds and cubic zirconia. Cubic zirconia is a man-made material that is optically flawless that can either be colourless or produced in a variety of shades to emulate other beautiful stones such as rubies, emeralds and sapphires. Stunning pieces of jewellery can be purchased quite cheaply in most department stores adding beautiful bling to any outfit. If you choose to look for the real thing and invest in a real diamond piece, would you know where to go? Helzberg Review – Do they make the cut? Your Diamond Guru Review can guide you through this very sparkly minefield and just where to get your hands on your statement piece!
Dress It Up
If you want to stand out amongst your friends, instead of sinking into the background, then opt for a sparkly dress. Nothing says sparkle more than sequins so release your inner Ke$ha and shimmy your way on to the dancefloor. Just how many sequins to go for is entirely up to you. Many pieces have side seam sequins designed to catch the eye as you saunter past or you may choose to go all out and dazzle from head to toe!
However you choose to bling it up this New Year, may your 2018 shine!
