Princess-y New Year's Eve
For a truly fabulous New Year's Eve, it can't be a plain old Saturday night where you dress in your third favorite dress and go out to the bars you always hit. This needs to be a spectacular whirl-a-gig of fun, parties, sequins and champagne. This needs to be something out of a fairy tale.
For the hair, think soft waves cascading down your back. A simple bun with some small pieces of hair to look just this side of deconstructed - Cinderella would have had that one down easy. If you've got short hair, go either super slicked down ala Emma Watson or add some mousse and spike it up, adding some oomph!
Finally, embrace the casual ease of the Rockabilly style combined with classic fairy princess. Heavy emphasis on ruby red lips and light make-up on the eyes, maybe a slight cat eye swoop if you're feeling sassy, which I bet you are, Quail Bell(e).
With these few tips, your New Years Eve will not only feel just like a fairy tale, but it'll set the stage for a truly fantastic 2012.
