New Year’s Makeup Ideas

New Year’s Makeup Ideas

Well hello there, beauties! Another year is almost over for all of us at Blossom & Beauty. We are so excited to start 2017 with the opening of our Seattle team, and couldn’t be more proud of our Portland women as well (they certainly made 2016 a fantastic year to be a bride). This being said, New Year’s Eve celebrations are upon us and there is no better time to get glam! Whether you are attending a swanky party in Seattle, or just getting together with friends and family, make sure that your hair and makeup makes one final statement for this year with our New Year’s Makeup Ideas!


New Year’s always marks a new beginning and a way to send the past year out with a BANG! Achieve this idea in your look by adding glitter to your eye makeup. Pull in some glowing tones with golds, coppers, and bronzes. The look that our owner, Jasmine, created on this model really draws all the attention to her eyes. Her look has a lot of bright notes that are accentuated by placing the glitter toward the inner eyelid and moving outward. Notice that there is even a smokiness going on with this makeup, which gives her a sultry look. Perfect for New Year’s Eve! To finish off the makeup, add a defined brow in your natural color, and a pop of pink to your cheeks and lips to make your look feel fresh and ready to take on 2017!

This look is also wonderful for New Year’s Eve because the hair has ample volume and just enough looseness to it that it feels effortless. Accentuate the look by pulling out a few soft whisps of hair on either side of the face. You can also follow Jasmine’s advice and add a beautiful hair piece like the one featured in the photo below from the fabulous minds of @haircomesthebride.


With this stunning and versatile makeup and hair look, there are so many options for accompanying wardrobe. We suggest trying a few looks to see what you like best! Consider a simpler but dramatic silhouette in a dark tone like black or maroon. Go full out glamour and pair with a gold or silver cocktail dress. Or, be on trend for the remainder of the year and wear a jumpsuit! We love either a bold color or black for this option. Don’t forget some dramatic jewelry or shoes to literally go one step further with your look for New Year’s!

Not sure you can pull this makeup or hair off on your own? Check out Jasmine’s tutorial for inspiration for how to achieve this flawlessly celebratory look!

We love connecting with our brides in Portland, Maui, and now Seattle!
