Quick and Fancy NYE: Quick Tips & Giveaway

December 20, 2016

New Years Eve is synonymous for sparkle, glam and pulling out your fancy pants.

But it takes time to doll up – time we don’t have! The hair, the makeup, the outfit… So this year we want to make your big night a simplified – but still totally glamorous – affair with these NYE Glam Quick Tips.

Problem – It’s ten minutes before 10PM and you have tickets to a neighbourhood NYE party. The problem is, you are currently sitting on your couch munching on left overs with no makeup on.

Solution? A sparkly lip!

Add a little sparkle to your NYE makeup and you can go from un-done to dolled up in a swipe.

Some lustworthy sparkle factories are Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick Kit.

This kit comes with two highly pigmented lipsticks, a clear gloss, one gold and one red container of loose sparkly pigment.  Swipe on the lipsticks, glide on the gloss then press on the pigment. I mean, look at this picture from Sephora – that lip is down right enchanting.

My fave, stila, also has the perfect sparkly solution. This year they curated five of their sought-after liquid lipsticks and created a holiday kit called ‘stay all day, sparkle all night. What makes this kit sparkle is their Glitterati topcoat. Glittery magic in a tube, this topcoat can go over any matte lipstick, adding a pop of shimmery glittery in one swipe.


Problem – It’s ten minutes before 10PM, you are meeting friends at your local pub to ring in the New Year but you have been sitting around in your Rudolph onesie all day.

Solution? A quick spritz of luxe perfume.

When I want to feel instantly glamourous, I always find spritzing on a ‘special occasion only’ perfume from my collection does the trick.

Some of my new favourite scents are available at Murale across Canada and will wipe away any trace of onesie, immediately.

First – Prada’s ‘Candy’ – this fresh, powdery scent is pretty and clean smelling, so you can totally fake you just got out of the shower.



Want to have a little more fun? Customize!

With CLEAN’s new Layering Trio – you can customize your scent for the night.

Their ‘Rain’, ‘Warm Cotton’, and ‘Shower Fresh’ Eau de Parfums are bright, sexy and fantastic to mix up. Two squirts of Rain and one squirt Shower Fresh and you’re out the door…just remember to take that onesie off.

You don’t have to spend ages primping for a great, and glamourous night out…especially if you win the CLEAN Layering Trio and stila ‘stay all day, sparkle all night’ liquid lipstick kit!!!

Yes, we are giving one lucky reader our faves for a NYE that is glam…in a flash!

  1. They all sound wonderful – but I think that Shower Fresh will be my favourite!! Thank you Santa Oprah!! 🙂

  2. Great post! I will admit I have not tried any of the CLEAN scents but have wanted to which is why I would love to win. I love clean fresh scents and would be very excited to try them. #GoOprah

  3. How to decide?! The pat McGrath kit caught my eye on Sephora as did the stila kit. Love those long lasting lips! I’d love to see if the shine option lasts as well!!

  4. I love the CLEAN brand! I’d be interested in trying the layering trio for sure. I’m not a huge perfume love but alway love fresh scents vs chemical. This sounds awesome!

Looking forward to reading your comments!
