New Year’s Eve Glam Makeup – 4 Looks

Hope you all enjoyed some time off over the holidays! Food, drinks,  time with friends/family and maybe some good Boxing Day deals? I’ve been spending time with family and enjoying Poppy’s first Christmas so haven’t really given a lot of thought to getting out to do any Boxing Day (which has turned into boxing week) shopping but I did notice that there were several websites with some great discounted beauty items. Sephora had several $15 specials on boxing day, MAC had up to 40% off on certain sets and limited edition releases, Hudson’s Bay and Bobbi Brown also had deeply discounted items. Some of them are still going so you may want to take advantage now before things run out.

And now that the excitement of Christmas has died down, it’s time to get ready to ring in 2017. New Year’s Eve is coming up fast and it’s always fun to get dressed up and put on a glitzy outfit and some glam makeup for the night.

Here are four different makeup look ideas across various price ranges to help you ring in the new year:
