Whether you’ll be partying till the early hours or keeping it casual and cosy with a night in, we’ve rounded up the best New Years Eve beauty companions for you.
If you’re going out out:
If you can’t wear glitter in the festive season then when can you? For a fuss-free, no-glitter-glue-needed sparkle, apply the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow, £24 Harvey Nichols. Use straight on the lid and tap out with finger tips for an effortless eye. Our favourite shades are Rose Gold Retro for a pink hue or Smouldering Satin for a classic bronze.
Nothing amplifies a look like big lashes. Keep it fluttery and flirty with these faux mink Doll Beauty, £10 Topshop, pair. Gradually increasing in length, this lash gives the perfect illusion of natural, luscious lashes. Also reusable up to 20 times, you can keep them going for all your festive occasions, and don’t forget your lash glue, Duo Striplash Adhesive, £5.99 Boots, is the industry favourite.
Once you’ve done all the hard work, don’t let it go to waste by dancing it away. Keep everything locked in place with Morphe Continuous Setting Mist, £15. Prevent caking, fading or melting – ensure you can party all night long with this micro-fine mist.
If you’re staying in:
Start the year as you mean to go on and bring in 2019 with soft, supple skin. Have yourself a merry little pamper with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque, £34. Described as an instant facial, this will regenerate and brighten the whole face ready for the first day of the year.
Rest those dancing feet and soak in an aromatherapy bath with the Honest Skincare Relaxing Bath and Body Oil, £30. Simply pour into running bath water or take some time to massage into the skin after washing to feel the calming, soothing benefits of lavender, black pepper and patchouli.
After a festive season of products, styling and heat, your hair may well need some TLC too. Restore it back to its original condition with the OUAI Treatment Masque, £25 Selfridges. In a handy sachet, it provides you with the perfect amount to repair and hydrate your locks, and is also great if you’re travelling.
