New Years Eve is, without a doubt, my favorite holiday. How could a girl not love a night that is all about sparkly dresses, champagne cocktails and a romantic (or sometimes not so romantic) midnight smooch? This year, I’m planning on having a low key evening with some friends (I think I’m still recovering from Bourbon Street last year) but that doesn’t mean I still don’t like to dress up a little bit. Since I’ll probably be going the LBD route, I know I want to spice up my normal beauty routine with a tripod of updates: a bold lip, a dramatic black lined eye and a glittery nail. These three makeup tricks really can elevate your normal face/nails and add a big punch to an otherwise ho-hum look.
