4. Choose the right New Year's Eve accessories

If you didn't receive any new jewelry treasures to wear at the party, why not make use of those cash gifts from Grandma or the gift cards from your sister-in-law? Chandelier earrings will make a festive statement, look great with simple updos and accentuate your bare neck, but opt for simple studs if you already have a flashy necklace picked out.  Too much jewelry above the neckline also can distract from your facial features, so select something that accentuates, not overpowers.

5. Don't overdo your new Year's Eve makeup

Shimmery eyes are perfect for New Year's, and there are several ways to get the look. Try a soft shimmery cream or dense powder shimmer.  (Make sure it's made specifically for eyes, because body shimmer may irritate the sensitive skin around the eyes.) Apply shimmery shadow above the eyelid's center and on the inner corner. This will open up the eye and help you achieve a bright-eyes look for photos.
