The turn of a new year often comes with a ravaged complexion, less than fresh highlights and the dehydration that comes from one too many flutes of Möet. But, it’s also about starting afresh, and getting excited about new things. In our case, getting excited about the beauty looks that kicked off the year we can get inspo from. To break up your first day back at work, Here’s a look at some of our favourite NYE looks, ready to screenshot for a go-to beauty hit to get you through the first day back at work…

Shanina Shaik

Aussie beauty Shanina looked incredibly chic NYE in a cut out black dress that flashed a lot of her perfectly toned figure. We’re obsessing, though, over her piled-high curly pony. Natural curls are set to be big for 2017, and Shanina has jumped on the beauty bandwagon early. Leave a few strands loose for an island-like vibe.

Jennifer Lopez

Draped in glamorous fur, Jenny from the block rang in the new year in Vegas with rumoured new beau Drake. Fluttery lashes and a subtle smokey eye complemented her celebrations in sin city just perfectly (lets just hope there was no Elvis-approved shotgun wedding). To copy her exotic eye, we love Socialeyes lases in ‘desire’.


Lais Ribeiro:

All of the VS Angels look amazing celebrating beach-side in Brazil, although we’re particularly fond of Lais’ braids. Perfect for the balmy weather, we’re copying this style for the last few summer soirees and beach barbeques of the season.

Happy New Year from Brazil ????☀?

Taylor Hill

The thick brunette mane, the pillowy lips, the subtle dewy highlight; Taylor Hill’s face is nothing short of perfect for new years eve. Low-key but undeniably sultry, try a plumping sticky lip gloss like Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme over a pinky balm (we love Mecca Tinted Lip De-lucious in Raspberry) for a plump pout in the New Year.

It’s now 2017 ??

    How long does the Too Faced lip injection last when you put it on?

      Hi Evelyn,

      I find it lasts a few hours- We reapplied twice during a night out!

      Hope this helps,
