Reviewing all the ravishing beauty secrets that will have you celebrating New Year’s Eve in true, impeccable style.
Not to alarm you or anything, but in just a few days, a new year is here. Before we start thinking about this year’s successes and setbacks, let’s focus on finishing this 2022 looking, and feeling, our absolute best. Here are DDW’s tips on how to look fabulous when getting ready to celebrate this New Year’s Eve in true style.
Get into the festive spirit with an elite fragrance
Even if you don’t like making a big fuss out of getting ready for New year’s eve, this special day marks the end of the holiday season and welcomes new beginnings. A spritz of an elite women’s perfume can have a great impact on our mood, and self-confidence and it is a perfect finish to every look you choose to wear, whether you are attending a big celebration or you decide to stay in the comfort of your own couch watching your favourite movies.
An all-time favourite for special occasions is Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent. Just a few spritzes on wrists, neck and top of the head will charm everyone who decides to give you a new years kiss or a warm hug during the night. This intense and oriental scent was introduced in 2014 and it still stays among the top 10 women’s fragrances to go for on special occasions, making it an all-time never-failing classic. The unusual blend of coffee, vanilla and jasmine in the composition of Black Opium with hints of spicy pink pepper and fruity notes give the scent a unique and mysterious vibe.
Be creative with your eye makeup
Welcome the first day of 2023 with a style! Explore and try all the shimmer and bold colours you have been saving in your vanity drawer for special occasions. Play and try something different this year and celebrate big for all the years we have been robbed of parties due to the pandemic.
Draw attention to your eyes
When it comes to the eyes, there’s nothing quite like trying on some fake eyelashes. Whether you wear them every now and then, every day or you have never tried them before, New Year’s Eve celebration is calling for a little seductive drama in your party look. You can combine them with full-on eye makeup or you can create a simpler look – big lashes and classic red lips. Choose a lip colour that makes you feel confident and for extra drama, and don’t forget to top it up with some gloss for that extra bit of oomph.
Bring the glitters to the game
Glitters are always a perfect touch for any festive make-up look, especially when getting ready for New Year’s Eve. Cover your lids with a layer of glitter primer, dab on golden or silver loose eye glitters or use glitter eyeshadows and you are good to go.
Not a fan of glittery eye makeup? How about putting glitters on your cheeks?
Play with the colours
Experimenting with colours is always a great way of taking your look to a new level. If you want to keep it simple, coloured pencil eyeliners bring that elevated twist to the classic eyeliner and mascara look, and happen to be extremely trendy. If you want that little extra glam this year and you wish to keep it that way all night long, don’t forget to use an eyeshadow primer. We then recommend picking a really pigmented eyeshadow, diffuse it out into a wing in the outer corner of the eye and add a darker shade of the same colour to the outer corner to give it the perfect finish. Voilá.
In case you are not a fan of colourful looks, smokey eyes are always trendy and chic, but may need a little practice, so start experimenting a little sooner before getting ready for New Year’s Eve. The key to perfect smokey eyes is always keeping the darkest point at the lash line, not using more than 3 shadows and eyeliner and using proper blending brushes. Achieving a perfect smokey eye may be difficult if you have not tried it before, so to cheat this look all a little, we recommend using a long-wear cream shadow and eyeliner blended together. Simply apply the shadow all over the eyelid and blend it towards the outer corner. Apply the gel eyeliner along the bottom lid and lash line, slowly smudging it with an eyeshadow brush.
