It might just be my inner Vegas showgirl talking, but when I think New Year's beauty, I imagine sparkles, sequins, glitter, metallics -- the works. But the truth is, when you're already planning on blinging yourself out head-to-toe with sequin pumps, a brocade dress, and a sparkly headband (not to mention some statement jewelry), piling on full-blown stage-worthy makeup can end up taking your look from dazzling to just plain drag queen. My advice? You can still have countdown-festive makeup that twinkles without taking it overboard. Bright blue nail polish, foiled eyeshadow, and shimmery versions of your favorite blush are great ways to add impact and shine to your NYE look without overpowering your outfit.
