After the decadent indulgences on X-mas Eve (looking at you, pretty Holiday macarons!) and the all-over food coma that is basically December, it can come as quite the shock: NYE is coming, and you really really want to look like the best version of yourself on the most festive night of the year. But what glam look will complement your party outfit best, and will make you feel totally on point when you welcome the new year? For the third and last part of our Holidays 17 with Chanel mini series, I put together my favourite glam look for the Holidays this year, or how to glam up like a goddess. And here's the best part: it really only takes a couple of items!
Finding a cute party dress is one of those things that sounds easier than it is. Especially in Winter, it can be daunting to find cute pieces that are dance floor-proof, but don't make you freeze your butt off when you drag yourself home. Enter: a mini dress plus booties combo! I find that a patent leather dress is pretty awesome when paired with a faux fur coat and simple black sock booties. You don't have to worry about finding the right complementary pieces with a statement article like that. I only added my favourite party accessories from the Chanel Cruise 17/18 collection: a shiny black embellished minaudière (totally obsessed!) and a golden cuff around my upper arm (idem). And then it's just a matter of glamming things up! I looove this year's Chanel Holiday make-up collection, especially the punchy red limited edition Rouge Allure lipsticks (I'm wearing No. 4) and Rouge Coco gloss (pictured shade is Romance), the matching Le Vernis nail polishes, and the Trait de Caractère eye palette (the green & maroon shades are so pretty). See, you only need a few products to put inside your little bag for touch-ups throughout the night, and off you go! Happy dancing, everyone!
What's your favourite glam for this NYE? Are you going to go all the way this year? :)
