The New Year’s Eve Makeup Look That Will Kick 2013 Off on the Right Foot
New Year’s Eve is just three short days away, and for us that means it’s time to break out the glitter! Whether you’re attending a big, fancy shindig or a small gathering with friends and family, you want to feel special as you leap into 2013. We’ve got just the look for you—watch as makeup artist Stefanie Syat transforms Birchbox staffer Deepica for a big night out.
Even if you don’t want to go all out with glitter, you can still look special on New Year’s Eve. Editorial Director Mollie shows us her go-to special occasion makeup look.
Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails- and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.

It’s time to ring in the new year! While I don’t know what you have planned for NYE, I do know that this night usually means big things: an awesome outfit, sultry makeup, dancing shoes, and a great mani! Since I’m still not sure what polish I will be rocking tomorrow, I decided to round up some inspiration. From the classic combo of black and gold to matte ombre sparkles to colorful confetti glitter, these are a few of my favorite festive ideas.
