I love the celebration of NYE: the getting glammed-up, the marking of the passing of one year into the next. The schizophrenic emotional cocktail of expectation, hope, and relief. The sense of letting go of what was so that we can be ready for what will be. This year, I have an intense urge to wear gold makeup all over my face and maybe continue that trend right up to Memorial Day and I'm not sure what that says in terms of my emotional state! Instead, I'll probably settle for just a little more gold in the new year and playing it safe with one feature at a time. Below I've compiled some of my NYE makeup and nail inspirations and a few perfect-for-NYE outfit picks from Velouria. And whether you're at home in sweatpants, sleeping through the countdown or dancing in the New Year confetti-and-champagne-style, have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve and here's to 2014!
