New Year’s Eve is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing it’s PARTY time!!!
Whatever your plans are for this New Year’s Eve, it is always fun to glam up a bit more than normal – and add a little sparkle and bling! Have you chosen your outfit yet? If not, I wanted to give you a few tips on how to look amazing this New Year!
Most people have an overall “Warm” or “Cool” appearance. For some people, it is much easier to determine. For example, red heads are usually “Warm” and anyone with silver, grey or platinum hair is usually “Cool”. For others, it might not be so obvious. As a redhead, I know that I look awful in silver and that gold lights up my face, making me look fresh, alive and, well, just more healthy!
Wearing something with a blue base or cool undertone just drains me, makes my teeth look yellow, emphasises my fine lines and makes me appear pale and sickly. Yuck! Let’s look at jewellery. If you think you have colouring similar to me, you should choose stones such as coral or golden toned pearls. Stone colour should focus on more earthy tones such as browns, oranges, greens, yellows, peaches, corals. Anything turquoise will look fab on you.
The best eyeshadow colours for you are browns, oranges, yellows, coppers, and, of course, gold. Go for a peachy blush and an orange based red lip.
Somebody with a “Cool” look, will not look their best in yellow based colours which will make their skin appear sallow. However, wearing a blue based, cool colour will make them look radiant! Silver metal will make their face come alive and their face will become luminous and healthy. If this is you, choose white pearls or diamonds. Stone colour should focus on jewel tones such as pinks, purples, blues, reds, and magentas.
For your eye shadow, silver, grey, heather and mauve will all look amazing. Keep your cheek colour pink based and for your lips, a blue based red or cool pink will look stunning.
Of course, just to confuse matters, you *could* be neutral, in which case you have the best of both worlds and will look fabulous in either.
Have a fab New Year’s Eve and see you in 2015!
