Glitter and sequins are always a good way to go when it comes to the New Year’s Eve party outfits; however, we can agree that these are a bit predictable. Slipping into a full-sequin dress is not the most creative solution you can opt for, but that doesn’t mean that you should completely exclude bling from your outfit. Matching a fabulous sequined skirt with a simple monochromatic shirt and black opaque tights is a winner combo which wasn’t seen too many times before – that’s exactly what makes it so irresistible. Your choice of shoes will largely depend on the type of look you want to achieve. If you would like to go for a more casual outfit, a nice pair of black leather ankle booties with a block heel will do the trick. On the other hand, if you’re going for a full glamorous look, you can always pick simple black stilettos with sky-high heels. These will definitely elongate your legs and make you appear much taller. Don’t forget to accessorize – if you decide to pull your hair back into a messy bun, a statement ear cuff may be a perfect solution when it comes to jewelry. However, if you’re up for something more glitzy, long crystal earrings aka ‘shoulder dusters’ are exactly what you’re looking for. Get a ring that follows the same style, and finish off your look with a stylish clutch that matches your shoes. Once that’s done, the only step left is your makeup!

When it comes to a perfect makeup look for an upcoming party, there are actually no set rules – you can really wear whatever you like, as long as it follows your outfit. Smoky eyes are always a good idea, since this look gives a depth and a whole new dimension to your eyes and face in general. Before you start off, make sure that you apply a primer to your lids – blend it out well, so that your eyeshadow doesn’t smudge all over your face. Use a dark shade from your lashes to crease, and don’t forget that a smoky eye should have no harsh lines – it should be blended out to perfection. A Q-tip brush will help you manage that. Once that’s done, apply a few coats of your favorite black mascara and move on to the rest of your face. Use your Skinstitut Vitamin C Powder as a fantastic base on your skin, since it’ll rejuvenate your face and even out your skin tone. Apply your foundation with a beauty blender, and then use your favorite highlighter to accentuate the cheekbones. As for your lips, red is definitely a good choice. However, it may look too strong in combination with dark smoky eyes, so going for a nude shade would be a great alternative. Finish off your makeup look with a few mists of setting spray and you’re good to go!


Here you go, the ultimate style and makeup guide is right in front of you, ready to be used in the best possible way for an upcoming New Year’s Eve party. Remember that sequins are always a good choice for the festive season, as well as statement jewelry and simple yet effective shoes that match the whole combination perfectly. As for the makeup, it’s important that it follows an overall festive style you opted for in the beginning. Once your look is all done, you’ll be ready to jingle at the party!
