AD | Christmas may be over, but the New Year’s Eve preparations are in full swing. I hate taking down my tree and decorations but knowing I have the opportunity to get glammed with all of my girls in just a few short days makes it all a bit more bearable. Will you be in your PJs and in bed by 10.30 pm or celebrating with a glass of bubbly? New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to embrace everything sparkly and covered in sequins. When I think of NYE glam, I immediately picture a rose gold mini, a gold glitter cut-crease, towering powder pink heels, beautiful fine jewellery and a sparkly clutch. What’s your NYE style?
Charlotte Tilbury, Pillow Talk Luxury Palette HERE (£39) | Boohoo, Boutique Sequin Cap Sleeve Shift Dress HERE (£28) | AU-Rate Obelisk Pendant HERE (£80) | AU-Rate, Circle Necklace HERE (£96) | AU-Rate, Pearl Pendant HERE (£710) | River Island, Sequin Open Back Mini Dress HERE (£35) | AU-Rate, Double Mini Gold Letter Charm Pendant HERE (£240)
The bestselling Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk palette contains effortlessly beautiful colours which are easy-to-wear and her formula is well-known for its rich pigment and buttery texture. Yes, it’s pricy for only four shades but this combination of colours is well worth the investment and if you can also get your hands on the iconic muted-rose lipstick it’s one of my all-time favourite beauty products. Every year I make the most of the Boxing Day sales and pick up a new shade of the Stila Magnificent Metal Liquid Eyeshadows to add to my collection. The liquid eyeshadow contains varying sizes of pearl and glitter which gives a truly captivating shimmer with minimal fuss or effort. The water-infused formula glides on effortlessly and is surprisingly lightweight and easy to blend. It dries down quickly and is very long-lasting, making it perfect for NYE.

I’m no fashion expert but I think there’s something really dreamy and romantic about rose gold. It’s the perfect option if you want to wear something luxe and pretty without looking cheap and garish. AU-Rate has some beautiful rose gold accessories at fair prices including delicate chains, geometric designs and stackable rings. As for party dresses, Boohoo is great if you want something affordable and they also have a fab plus-size collection which now goes up to size 24.
What will you be wearing this New Year’s Eve?
