Time To Sparkle! 5 New Year’s Eve Makeup Looks

New Year’s Eve is a chance to dress up and put on those sparkly earrings or that sequin dress that may seem a bit over the top the rest of the year. The same is absolutely true for your makeup. Your career may not allow for the shimmer shadows and your weekend evenings may generally be more sedate than smoky eye worthy, that’s what makes New Year’s Eve the perfect opportunity to go a little more bold than usual.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite New Year’s Eve makeup looks below.

  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
