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.
