With New Year’s Eve being just around the corner, the chances are you’re looking for the best ways to get gorgeous for the big night. Whether you’ll be kissing someone at the stroke of midnight, or dancing the night away — here are a few ideas that may make getting ready (and staying glam all night long) much easier!
Have no idea what to wear? That’s okay! Get thee to Rent The Runway, ASAP. They can ship you the designer dress of your dreams at a fraction of the price it would cost to own it. When you’re finished with it — you simply ship it back in the provided pre-paid bag via UPS. I’ve rented countless dresses from them (they have plus sizes, too!), as well as accessories, and I’m impressed. You can get $25 off your first order when you join now with code FIRSTRTR25P.
If makeup and hair aren’t exactly your forte, or you’re in need of a little pampering after the hectic holiday season, try Glamsquad. When you book on their app or website — they deliver a vetted beauty pro to your own house! (Major metro service areas — Los Angeles, New York, and Miami.) You can get blowouts, updo’s, makeup application, manicures, and pedicures — even nail art and gels in the comfort and privacy of your own home. This is especially great if you can’t get into a salon because they’re booked — or you just don’t have the time. Get $25 off your first appointment by using code WELCOME25.
If you’d like to DIY, but don’t know where to start with your makeup for the night, try YouCam Makeup. You just break out your phone, take a selfie — and in the app, you can see exactly how you would look with just about any makeup look! You’ll be able to give yourself a virtual makeover, check out tutorials, get great ideas, and you can also edit your photos to perfection. Choose from hundreds of makeup looks and hairstyles, or create your own. This real-time makeover and selfie cam is a lot of fun, I’ve used it several times for inspiration and photo editing.
