Enter the New Year Glistening

I was totally stressed this time yesterday about what I would be wearing to our friends big New Year’s bash this year, until I remembered a cardinal fashion rule:  the very best outfits are defined by details.  I put together a classic ensemble in greys, silvers and blacks and spiced it up with the following:

For eyes:  I moved away from my overdone smoky eyes and went for something simple with a touch of drama.  Lined the inside corners of my eyes with a white liner, and a thick black liner on the outside of my eyes.  Mascara to follow.  A bit of glitter on my cheek bones sets of my eyes perfectly!

For lips:  To balance out the simplicity of my eye makeup, I chose DuWop’s Pink Shimmer Lip Venom for plumpness, flushing and plenty of shimmering pink.

For hair:  Down and curly, I used Catwalk’s Your Highness Gel Creme and Hairspray to control and hold my style.  Flexible for bounce & swing with the perfect amount of shine.

For nails: Here’s where I had some fun- OPI’s new Alice in Wonderland Mad As A Hatter polish features a crazy multi glitter sparkle to help ring in the new year with some extra glitz.

For shoulders and arms:  Dirty Girl’s Glitter ball adds glitter to exposed skin, while Booty Parlor’s Luminizing Body Butter adds a subtle sheen all over skin.

Glitz and glitter in the smallest details not only make a perfect New Year’s touch, but they are definitive of what runways, cosmetics lines and our favorite celebs are telling us are perfect for 2010.
