Last Minute Beauty Looks for A Next-Level New Year’s Eve


Maybe you got a last minute invite to a New Year’s Eve soiree, or perhaps you just neglected to put together a lewk. Either way, now you’re caught without the perfect NYE aesthetic. Missing the party isn’t even an option. Fortunately, you can go from everyday meh to ten shades of glam with a few simple tricks.

NYE Nails

Sometimes, all it takes is a flawless manicure to create a polished, put-together appearance. Book an hour at the salon and splash out with your manicure. Stick with visually appealing nail varnish. For New Year’s Eve, go with a glimmering design. Tell the nail tech that you want your fingernails to resemble the Time’s Square ball.

All That Glitters

Glitter dresses up any ensemble. It can take you from shrinking violet to chic in an instant. Pick out a shimmering highlighter. Wear a line of frosted eyeliner above a wing of basic black. Sprinkle glitter in your hair, over your cheekbones, and around your eyes. Use a light touch, though. You don’t need to cover everyone with pixie dust the whole night.

Luscious Lips

It’s not the night to skip lipstick. The right shade will bring together your outfit. Opt for a hue that complements your complexion, but make sure it’s bold. A red lip is an unbeatable choice for New Year’s Eve, but darker, dramatic shades are gorgeous, too. Shop for a lippie that promises to be smudge-proof so it won’t wear off when you kiss bae at midnight.

Lash By Lash

Draw attention to your eyes. Your eyeshadow and liner go a long way toward framing your gaze, but you can’t stop there. Break out the mascara. Feeling bold? If only for the night, experiment with false eyelashes. You won’t believe how much your pretty peepers pop. Protip: brush your falsies with mascara, too.

Perfect Party Clothes

You don’t necessarily have to buy a new outfit for the holiday. Instead, think about putting together an ensemble using pieces you already own. The secret is to wear items that fill you with confidence, elegance, and edge. Wear what makes you feel stunning and hold onto that attitude the entire night.

How will you create a dazzling New Year’s Eve aesthetic?
