NYE 2016: All That Glitters! Nars Dragon Girl Lip Pencil And Very.co.uk Sequinned Jumpsuit

Hi loves,

 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! 

My NYE was quite a chilled one spent with friends at home. I was also feeling slightly groggy (boo) but I still made the effort to add some sparkle to my New Year's Eve 2016 party look.

I wanted a classic matte red lip for NYE 2016 and in the end I opted for Taylor Swift's fave red lippie, NARS' Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl...


This is one of my favourite lip formulas - the chubby pencil is a dream to apply (you don't even need liner) and the colour payoff is amazing. It's matte, so you'd think it'd be drying, but it's not too bad actually. Nevertheless, it lasted all night! 

 I kept the rest of my beauty look pretty simple, consisting of a slightly dewy base (NARS Sheer Glow Foundation) and a feline flick of eyeliner (Urban Decay Ink For Eyes), topped off with a few coats of Benefit's They're Real mascara.


I wanted something relatively comfortable to wear as I was on hosting duties, but also something glam enough to wear for NYE, so I chose this jumpsuit from Very.co.uk. 

I received it a couple of years ago during a press event and it's been sitting in my wardrobe ever since - clearly waiting for the right event! The top half is a fitted, sequinned bustier and the lower half is a pair of almost harem-style trousers.

I added a statement waist belt from H&M to jazz it up a bit and to match the gold embellished hooped earrings I was wearing.

Clearly, shoes were the last thing on my mind before the party...!

Love,
