From sparkly eyeshadows to hairspray so powerful you can dance the night away, we’ve got everything you need to celebrate NYE in style
New Year’s Eve is looking a little different this year. With Omicron cases growing rapidly in the UK, you may be choosing to stay in with your loved ones instead of heading out for a night on the town. Whatever you decide to do, we’ve got your party makeup and hair covered, so you can ring in 2022 feeling your best.
Whether you are dressing up in your finest party dress, keeping it comfy in your favourite joggers or getting cosy in your PJ’s, you can always rely on your New Year’s Eve makeup and hair to bring a little bit of added glamour, even if you are just playing board games and eating Christmas leftovers (turkey pie anyone?).
We know that getting ready can be somewhat stressful at times, with a million questions running through your head. Will these curls hold all night? Will my eyeliner smudge? What is the best red lipstick for that important midnight kiss? That’s why we’ve rounded up our top hair and makeup products, designed to keep those worries at bay. From seriously good setting sprays to hairspray so strong that no amount of wind can get in your way, these products will soon become staples in your makeup bag.
It wouldn’t be a party without a little bit of sparkle, so we have also included our top shimmering eyeshadow palettes and luscious red lip glosses. After such a rollercoaster of a year, treat yourself to some of our favourite New Year’s Eve makeup and hair products to help make your night feel a little bit more special. You deserve it.
