The countdown to 2019 is well and truly on! To celebrate, we have rounded up 11 products to inspire your New Year’s Eve beauty look! When it comes to beauty and fashion choices over the party season, our motto is ‘go hard or go home’. We are talking glitter, bold lip and nail colours and even more glitter. Whether you are someone who normally takes a backseat on the beauty bus, or you are a makeup aficionado, our product list will have something to suit everyone. Remember at the end of the day, makeup isn’t a commitment and will wash right off if you don’t love it. So, experiment with colours and textures – and most importantly, have fun with your look!
Using a sheet mask is the easiest way to look like you have been sipping green juices and relaxing on an island for the past week. Simply pop it on clean skin, relax for 15 minutes then voila! Your skin will be left glowing and perfectly prepped for your makeup. We love the Go-To Skincare Transformazing sheet masks as they are enriched with skin-loving ingredients like Kakadu Plum and Finger Lime.
There’s something just so satisfying about giving your skin a good exfoliation, especially before an event. The cheeky Australian brand Frank Body is renowned globally for their incredible coffee scrubs. Although the scrubs leave your shower a tad messy, they leave your skin ultra-hydrated and feeling like silk!
These liquid glitters have been a bestseller since their launch for a good reason. With one swipe, you can achieve a beautiful glittery eye without it falling all over your face. Whether you are a beauty novice or expert, using this product is a cinch.
While wearing a bold lip on its own is classic, it is also the perfect addition to compliment a glitter eye. Look for a long lasting matte formula that will go the distance because let’s be real, no one wants to worry about touching up their lipstick all night long! We love the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips in Screen Siren as it’s a rich and vibrant red that stays put.
If you don’t feel like rocking a bold lipstick, then a lip gloss might be a more suitable option for you. The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb gives your lips the glossiest sheen minus the unpleasant sticky feeling. This particular shade even has a subtle sparkle to get your lips truly shining.
When you’re tearing up the D-floor to Britney Spears songs on New Year’s, you want that highlighter to be poppin’. BECCA highlights are cult classics because they are finely milled and give your cheekbones an intense sheen - all without looking like you painted a silver stripe across your face. Apply this product anywhere you want to glow like J.LO, such as your cheekbones, brow bone, cupids bow and even the bridge of your nose.
In this busy day and age, time is of the essence, so we tend to multi-task wherever possible. Applying our makeup shouldn’t have to be any different. This portable palette from MECCA MAX contains all of the eye shadow and cheek colours that you’d need for a complete look.
Coming all the way from Brazil, this non-sticky shimmering body oil is the perfect finishing touch to complete your New Year’s Eve look. This nourishing product will illuminate your skin with a subtle golden glow and leave you feeling like a Brazilian goddess!
So, maybe bold makeup isn’t your thing. If you do want to include a little bit of glitter somewhere, or you are going completely all out with the glitter, a nail polish will be your best friend. If subtle is your middle name, one coat of glitter polish will do the trick. However, if you are after an ultra-glam look, apply two-three coats.
A texturizing spray is a simple way to achieve cool French girl ‘I woke up like this’ vibes. Spray this product into dry natural hair to enhance your own texture, or spray through freshly curled hair for beachy-waves. We love the Sam McKnight Cool Girl Texture Spray as it gives the hair texture without making it feel sticky or weighed down.
Using a setting spray is key to ensuring your gorgeous makeup stays put through all the New Year’s festivities. The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray cools the skin down to prevent sweating and locks your makeup into place. Think of a setting spray as like an insurance policy for your makeup!
