The New Year is just round the corner and you might have already made plans to attend a few parties. Deciding on a dress is difficult enough but choosing the perfect makeup and hairstyle tops that off.
Don’t lose your mind with all that worrying. Just go over these few New Year’s Eve make up ideas and start 2016 with your best look.
1. Bright Impact: Lush Lips
This year, the trendsetters had more of a 90s concept in their mind and so most of the runway models were seen sporting ripe berry lips (a personal favorite), lush red lips, and a number of other enticingly luscious colors. To get the best look, top off the gorgeous lips with Bronze Shadow.
2. Warm Glow: Bronze Eye Shadow
After a long time, the usual silver and gold eye shadow was overtaken by the new trend of the bronze one. What makes it the look of 2015? Well, the color gives a warm glow to the face and gently makes the eyes more prominent. The metallic look does look gorgeous but it wouldn’t offer the glow that bronze eye shadow does. So, this New Year’s Eve you’ll get the best look that’ll make you the envy of all your friends.
3. Dark Look: Smoky Eyes
This look might never get old. Every girl loves the dark, murky look of smoky eyes and why wouldn’t they? This trend definitely complements the whole look and makes the eyes stand out. But there are many others who might find this dramatic look too intimidating. If you think the same, just try it once and you’ll surely love it. Top it off with the perfect eyeliner to make a statement. Need help with that? Check out this tutorial.
4. Gorgeous Eyes: Liner
The more graphic eyeliners just won’t do this holiday season. Go for a simpler one for your perfect New Year’s Eve makeup. Just go for a straight swipe that would elongate your eyes, giving them a gorgeous look. Another benefit of this eyeliner is that it will help lift up your eyes. So get ready to get rid of droopy eyelids with this simple trick. The best thing is that this look would work best with all occasions whether it is a party or a formal event.
5. The More Natural Look: Flushed Cheeks
Here you wouldn’t need to put much effort. The cold actually helps you in getting flushed cheeks this winter – the flushed cheek look will just make you look ravishing. Do try out this trend for your holiday makeup but do remember not to overdo it. A simple look would do well with your overall look. The less the better.
6. The Perfect Hairdo
Simple blow dried hair would look great. Just curl up the ends and the hairdo will accentuate your face. Just run a flatiron through the front bangs and you’re ready.
And of course you’ll need the most amazing outfit to go with such a nice look. Do check out Fabletics and rock the runway!
Most of us want to have a stylish home, but we often find that having a pet in the family means having to compromise on that style. However, there are ways you can own a pet and still have a home that looks as great as you want it to.
Why have a pet?
Some may argue that a stylish home and a pet are incompatible, but there are very good reasons why owning a pet enhances your life rather than stifles it. Bringing a young animal into your home, such as a kitten or a puppy, is like bringing home a new baby. It is a creature that you can love unconditionally and which will give you love back and provide companionship and joy.
Making your new pet comfortable
To make your pet feel at home, you need to provide it with a space to sleep and a space to eat. This will, of course, mean you have to adapt certain areas of your home for its use. For example, you will probably need to clear a space in your kitchen for a water and food bowl or maybe even integrate these into existing cabinetry for a more streamlined look. You will also need to find a space for the pet’s bed, whether in your living room or hall, or even in your bedroom if are planning to allow your pet to enter that space. However, do not think you have to have a dog or cat basket that is ugly bringing your home’s style down. There are many designer pet beds on the market that will actually enhance your home.
Staying clean and healthy
A home cannot be stylish if it is unclean and this includes the dirt that cannot be seen. When you bring a pet into your home, you are opening the environment to allergens and dirt. It is, therefore, important that you treat your new pet with worm and flea treatments, such as flea-tablets regularly, for their health and your own, and that you keep floors clean.
Small changes to the way you live
If you already have children, you will be used to making your home safe and you may need to do this with a new pet. This may include ensuring electrical cabling is hidden away in trunking to avoid your young dog or cat chewing on them. This will be a plus for you, however, as straggling cables can look ugly, so co-ordinated trunking will help to make your home more stylish. If you have a new cat, consider removing anything that dangles in your home, such as curtain tiebacks, as these will only attract your cat. This may also provide an opportunity for you to reconsider your window dressings and update them for something more modern, such as blinds or window shutters.
Becoming a pet owner brings many advantages to your health and wellbeing, and these days, there is no need to worry that a pet will drag the look of your home down. Plan carefully about design and functionality and you may find that your pet’s presence actually enables you to make some great style choices for your home.
