beauty tips for new year party

Can you believe we’ve already reached the end of the year? In just a few days we'll be stepping into a brand new one. So it's fitting to cover a few simple tips on how to look fabulous over the party season, and how to prepare yourself for the year to come. 

New Year Eve parties are a time to enjoy friends, celebrate the year’s successes and forget the year’s setbacks. And what you wear and how you feel should say just that. 

Whether you put on one of our famous bandage or bodycon dresses or are dressing down in jeans and t-shirt, we have a few tips to ensure you bring the new year in with style. 

Explore, and start the year looking and feeling your best.  

Get Exercise And Eat Properly

It sounds crass but preparing your body both mentally and physically will help you enjoy yourself more over this party season. You'll feel better, healthy and be more vibrant, ensuring you get all the right attention too. 

Getting exercise and improving your diet are excellent ways to make a big difference in your outlook, focus, and attitude as you celebrate the end of the year and start the new one fresh.

Here are some tips to help you get started.

Start Exercising

If you are already doing it, stick to it. If not, now is the best time to start

If you are already exercising, stick to it over this busy part of the year, your body will thank you. If you're not, now is the best time to start. It's never too late to tone your body and keep at it. 

Choose any physical activity that you like as long as it gets you moving, your muscles flexing and your heart working. 

When you exercise regularly, it has a positive effect on your mood and overall health, which brings radiance and a definite glow to your face.

Eat The Right Foods

Choose to eat more lean proteins, vitamins, and healthy fats.

What you eat has a significant impact on how you look and feel. 

So in the run-up to the New Year (and beyond that), choose to eat more lean proteins, vitamins, and healthy fats. Eggs, berries, walnuts, fatty fish, green tea, and leafy vegetables are some foods that you need to add to your regular diet. 

Talk to a nutritionist to find the right diet plan for your lifestyle and budget.

Avoid Unhealthy Foods

Resist the temptation to indulge in some unhealthy gorging if you want to keep your toned, glowing look.

At the risk of sounding boring, we have to say this – resist the temptation to indulge in unhealthy gorging if you want to keep your toned, glowing look. 

Highly processed foods, canned juices, sodas, sugary baked goods, and deep-fried, greasy dishes are to be kept away at all cost.

These do nothing for your health or looks and instead can lead to acne and other unflattering problems. 

Also, keep a check on your alcohol intake and make plain water your drink of choice to keep yourself hydrated and fresh.

Take Care of Your Skin and Hair

Making simple lifestyle changes gives you long-term positive results and taking better care of your skin and hair is a priority. 

Here are a few beauty tips that can give you a natural glow effortlessly.

Exfoliate Your Skin

Try a pH-neutral product for a gentle skin cleansing that will not agitate or irritate your skin type.

You need to scrub your skin at least once a week. Use products best suited for your skin type to keep your face looking fresh and glowing (and to keep those ugly blackheads at bay). 

Try a pH-neutral product for a gentle skin cleansing that will not agitate or irritate your skin type.

Alternatively, prepare some scrubs at home using all-natural ingredients. Honey mixed with coffee or sugar mixed with vegetable oil present some excellent options.

Maintain A Skincare Routine

One of the most simple and effective ways to keep your skin healthy is to stick to a CMT process every day

CMT is the use of a skin cleanser, moisturizer, and toner before you go to bed every night. This process can make a massive difference to your skin. 

Make it a habit, and carry it into the next year as well.

Keep Your Hair In Good Shape

Keep your tresses healthy and conditioned for flawless tresses.

Dry, damaged hair can spoil the best of looks. So begin taking better care of your hair to achieve your New Year beauty goals. 

Keep your tresses healthy and conditioned for a flawless look. Use lukewarm instead of hot water while washing your hair, and condition every time you shampoo.

Do not undermine the wonders of good quality oil. Massage coconut or olive oil deep into your scalp to keep dandruff and dry hair away. Leave this on for at least an hour before washing it off with a mild and herbal shampoo.

Pay Attention To Your Hands And Feet

Get a manicure and pedicure before the party starts

Most of us tend to focus just on our face. But remember that your little black dress or bandage dress will show a lot more than that. 

Get a manicure and pedicure before the party starts, so that your hands and feet look as beautiful as the rest of your body. 

Keep them clean and moisturized at night so that you don't have to deal with dry, chapped feet or hands.

Think About What to Wear

As the New Year approaches and your parties await remember that what you wear sets the tone. 

Dressing the part is essential to stand out at any gathering, so choose an outfit that combines style and comfort. You also want to be confident in your body and look. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Choose A Dress That Looks And Feels Good

Pick the right type of dress according to your body type

One sure-fire way of dressing to impress is to pick the right type of dress according to your body type so that it highlights all your right features.

Whether it is a cocktail dress or a different kind of outfit, make sure that you feel confident in it. Comfort is imperative because you will be mingling and possibly dancing all night long.

Balance Your Look

There is nothing wrong with adding a little bling to your look. However, do not go overboard. 

If you are wearing a sparkly mini dress, layer it with a simple shrug or cropped jacket. If a two-piece outfit is what you are planning to wear, keep one piece simple and add bling to the other. 

For example, a sequined fitted skirt in a metallic shade looks great with a monotone top.

Think About Your Footwear

Wedges add a few inches to your height without you having to deal with blisters and sore feet

Stilettos and high heels no doubt bring sexiness to your look like nothing else, but when it comes to picking footwear for a New Year’s Eve party, comfort plays a big part. 

Think about the kind of event you will be attending – if it is a formal dinner, you can go with sky-high heels. 

But if you plan to meet up at a club or have a dance party with friends, a pair of platform shoes or pretty wedges is recommended. 

Wedges add a few inches to your height without you having to deal with blisters and sore feet on the first day of the New Year.

Know Your Accessories

How you accessorize your dress can completely transform your look

How you accessorize your dress can completely transform your look, so spend some time picking out the right pieces. 

Keep the jewelry minimal and straightforward if you are wearing a shiny dress to achieve the right balance.

If you are wearing something simple, choose a statement piece for a bold yet understated look. If you are planning to wear a bodycon or bandage dress in a simple cut and color, add a beaded belt.

Belts not only add an instant glam factor but also accentuate your curves perfectly.

Plan Your Hair and Makeup For the Party

As you prepare for your New Year’s party and activities (and other events) also consider your hairstyle and makeup.

As you prepare for your New Year event, consider your hair and makeup. For your party try a hairstyle that is beautiful and versatile so that you can keep your new look into the New Year.

Smokey Eyes

Smokey eyes are always trendy, and they work for parties. Get the eyeshadow out for that rock ‘n’ roll look. Try going with navy or mix black and gray for a smoldering, mysterious look. Use neutral colors for a look that is soft and natural.

Bring On The Red

Say what will, but a dash of red lipstick can never go wrong when you are out partying. Go for a soft, velvety texture in classic red with an LBD or non-blingy dress for an elegant yet flirty appeal. Wear your hair in shoulder-length bouncy waves to complete the sophisticated look.

The Sculpted Look

Sculpted cheekbones with just the right amount of bronzer give you a straight off the runway style. Complete your party look with statement earrings and a high ponytail.


Now that you have all the beauty tips you need to look ravishing at every New Years Eve party (and beyond), the only thing left to do is act. Don't wait, instead start right away, avoid common beauty problems, and be the best new you today.
