You've put your time in for your family for the holidays now it's your time to shine.  It's the holiday season. A time filled with parties and togetherness. So, of course you want to look good.  It's time to break out the party dresses ladies! There are a few simple looks that you can try to give yourself the extra wow factor for the new year. Glitter and shimmer makeup products really add a touch of intensity to your look that's sure to get you noticed.

Rather you want to go all out or not is up to you, so be creative.  Just a touch of highlighter around the eyes or cheeks can give you that little something. Soft creams, pinks and gold highlighting will always look good. You can add small amounts to the apples of your cheeks or along the brow bone and underneath the eye. It works in all areas. Adding gold shimmer eyeshadow to highlight your matte colors will give it some pop. The classic smokey eye is always a crowd pleaser. Choosing a different color other than black to create the look works well too. Dark blue and purple shadows with a hint of shimmer are gorgeous for the night time. You can also choose a dark green or go lighter with some pinks and light golds. It's all about making a statement for the new year.  If your a false lashes girl or not there are some glitter mascaras on the market that give you that extra party look, but ladies try not to od on the shimmer you still want to draw attention to your outfit! Topping off your look with some sexy lips is always a must. Whatever you think will go the best with your look, but remember the more done up your eyes the less the lips. If your a lipstick gal corals pop. If you prefer lip gloss the shinier the better, make your look fun tonight. Sugar products for the lips are a beautiful finishing touch. Add a little sparkle to the bow of your lips or add a clear gloss to the center of your bottom lip if wearing lipstick, doing this also makes them look more plump.

Be prepared for you night out and bring a small makeup bag in your clutch. Wearing dramatic shades of color need the occasional touch up, especially if your under the mistletoe all night. Above all have fun and be creative. Don't be intimated by color. Put on your dance shoes and grab a fake afro because your disco diva look is sure to please.
