New Years Eve is here, bringing with it distinctly gilded style cues. From subtle pops of metallic shimmer to illuminating sheens, this time of year’s most coveted looks embrace a youthful spirit. And we here at Beauty Coach agree: There’s something undeniably whimsical about glitter.
But you might be wondering how you can take glitter-inspired beauty buys from flashy, to chic. Read on to discover our simple tips and tricks, perfect for helping you to step up your end of the year style, with ease.
Tip 1: Try a manicure that pops. Ultra-glamorous, glittering nails are a delightful New Years Eve treat – but it can be difficult to get a rich, opaque look from lacquers imbued with glitter. Forgo slightly transparent sparkle – and instead, make a bold statement. Get the look by starting with a solid, white base, which boasts even coverage. For radiant color, we like Burberry Beauty Nail Polish No. 104 Stone. Follow with a chunky glitter polish such as multi-colored Deborah Lippmann Glitter & Be Gay Nail Polish. For opulent results, allow for at least two coats of glitter.
Tip 2: Try glitter rimmed lids. Making a bold statement can be a snap with a glitter-laden liner. Forgo extravagant flicks and cat eye shapes, and instead, aim to apply a basic line, working from the outer corner of the eye to the tear duct. Beauty Coach likes Tarte Limited Edition Tarteist PRO Glitter Liner. Featuring a metallic, quick-dry liner with an ultra-fine tip to define eyes, plus a no-budge glitter liner that dries instantly, you’ll get a gorgeous look – no muss, no fuss.
Tip 3: Try a get-noticed pout. If you’re after a bold lip, try a fresh take on an iconic red hue. Lipstick Queen All That Jazz in Hot Piano touts an on-trend molten metal appearance that guarantees you’ll achieve the status of a sizzling siren. With a tantalizing texture and a sparkling, festive finish, the ultra-hydrating formula will keep your lips soft, sensuously smooth – and coated in color.
Beauty Coach quick-tip: Compliment glittering lips with a bare face, a full, bold brow and paired down eyes accentuated with just a swipe of highlighting fluid.
Mastering a bejeweled look while keeping your chic style intact can seem like a daunting task, but wearing glitter with sophistication can be simple and fun. Using the no-fuss tips and tricks included here, you can easily create dimensional eyes or a sparkling manicure – and feel confident that you’ll look fabulous this New Year’s Eve, and beyond.
