New Year’s Eve glam sorted – we’ve rounded up a list of the best looks to try for the night

New Year's Eve beauty

As New Year's Eve rolls around, and with us once again allowed freedom, we ponder the thought of actually putting in some effort this year when it comes to our beauty look. With the last 18 months spent prominently in sweats, the idea of actually putting on a face seems more inviting to us. Being in the Southern Hemisphere, we have the luxury of being in the height of summer when the clock ticks over. This makes the prospect of putting together a daring look for the night all the more acceptable. Consider this your opportunity to bring about your punchiest, boldest looks yet. As the old adage goes, how you spend your New Year['s Eve is how you'll spend the rest of your year. So why not have a little fun with it?

The summer beauty du jour, with La Niña currently on the horizon the last thing we need to worry about is the state of our hair staying put on the night. Enter the slicked bun, the answer to all of our hair prayers. A chic time saver that always looks the part of simple perfection for any NYE Instagram story. Try accompanying it with an orangey red lip for extra summer glow.

Tis the season to be vibin' a rock n roll revival. We've seen a return to the smudged out look that made the likes of Lily Rose Depp and Cara Delevingne famous. It's been slowly gracing our feeds again over the last few months and we'll happily take it on board. The night couldn't go any smoother with the likes of a quick smudge under the waterline. Try it with an ombre lip look and some, summery au natural hair.


 70's tousled waves

The trend that is more than welcome to stay in 2022 – we're seeing no signs of stopping and we wouldn't want it any other way. If you were considering getting a fringe chop before NYE, let this be your reason to put the scissors away immediately. The more grown out the better. Let you strands naturally air dry and use some texture spray like Oui's wave spray to add some extra oomf.

Life is too short to be covering up all the time, this NYE make more time to catch up on those missed connections and don a fresh face. We are loving the natural look of brushed up brows and bare skin. Try the edition of a luminous skin perfecting tinted moisturiser like Charlotte Tilbury's Healthy Glow and let the rest shine through.
