New Year’s Eve may be the one night you can get away with three of our favorite things; a sparkly dress, a smokey eye and a statement lip! We all know this is the most photographed night of the year, and we’re guaranteeing you a fabulous profile picture to ring in 2012 in style with one of our designer picks.
So you’ve ordered the dress, but now how will you wear your hair? Have no fear, RTR has you covered!
For something out of the ordinary, we love a Kardashian-inspired sleek sky-high pony to be the perfect way to add runway flair to your already fashionable attire. To achieve this look follow a few easy steps:
Add a texturizing spray to add thickness to damp hair then blowdry
Flat iron if desired for extra smoothness
Using paddle brush, bring hair to high pony
Secure with elastic leaving a one inch section out to hide elastic
Take one inch of hair and wrap around elastic securing with bobby-pin
If bumps arise in front, take a comb through to smooth
Add shine serum and finishing spray to complete!
With this complete look you’ll be sure to cause more attention than the ball dropping itself! Remember, this is your night to shine!
Whether you're jetting off to Rio or hitting the slopes in Aspen, ring in the New Year looking your best with RTR!

Who says the holiday lights are the only things that get to sparkle? Just because the weather is getting drab doesn't mean your skin has to. Blush is the perfect pick me up to add the extra excitement you need for these gloomy winter months. We love our Lancome Golden Hat/Powder Blusher not only because of its adorable packaging (can you blame us) but because it supports the Golden Hat Foundation, a non-profit created by beloved Ambassadress Kate Winslet to raise funds to better the lives of children living with autism. To support her inspiring philanthropic endeavor, Lancôme has worked with her to create a stunning holiday collection that brings to life the spirit and message of the charity. The new multi-compacted powder is an original interpretation of the Golden Hat, symbol of her non-profit. Her personal signature dresses the limited-edition black packaging in a glamorous gold script.
No matter how fair or deep your complexion, everyone can benefit from this product. This dual-purpose blush and powder is the perfect addition to your cosmetic bag or stocking stuffer for your bestie. This all-over sparkling pink powder adds a flawless glow even J.Lo would be jealous of! Are you ready to shine like a star?
Heading to a party this New Years where you’re sure to dance the night away? With cutouts and sparkle you’ll be the best dressed in the room. Pair this Badgley Mischka sequin mini dress with simple accessories and a Judith Leiber clutch for a stand out ensemble. For a daring but chic outfit, work the Pencey Dance To The Beat dress with a Janis Savitt statement necklace.
If you have a date this New Year’s Eve, go bold and classy in raving red or molten metallic. We love this one-shouldered number by Black Halo that is ultra glam when paired with gold accessories. Go with a champagne colored clutch and gold drop earrings to round out your perfect date night look. If you’re more of a neutral girl, try this metallic strapless See by Chloe number with unique black accents. To add texture and shine wear this Elizabeth Cole bracelet and a Cara Accessories chain braided necklace.
For a dinner party with friends this New Year’s Eve, go casual glam in sheer black or bold blue draping. We love Milly’s Flutter dress that can be dressed up or dressed down. Rent a vintage Chanel necklace to make your night that much more memorable, and pair with a metallic clutch. If you’re heading out after dinner, wear this gorgeous blue Yigal Azrouel dress and you’ll surely be the envy of all your friends. Accessorize with a statement Erikson Beamon ring and stardust Kara Ross clutch.
If you have big plans that require black tie attire this New Year’s, make sure you dress the part. We are loving one shouldered gowns for winter that combine glitz with glam. Wear this celeb-worthy Carmen Marc Volvo gown with bold crystal drop earrings and a stone cuff and you’ll light up the room. For an eye-catching look, try this gold sequin gown by Blugirl paired with a hammered cuff and gilded clutch.
What may have been considered a fashion don’t and regret of many of the 80’s is back and we’re not feeling sorry about it! Blue shadow may seem a bit daring at first sight but this color is surprisingly flattering on a wide range of complexions, and may just be the oomph you need in your cosmetic bag!
We love our Lancome Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Midnight Rush because it gives us total freedom to play. The five shadows are beautifully paired for the perfect smokey eye in one easy to use compact. Within the compact you have your classic charcoal and silver, a white shadow for instant brightening and a stunning black for liner in addition to the bold blue.
To get a look right from the runway, wet an angled eye-liner brush into the blue shadow to glide across your lower lash lines. The color will instantly pop and add the wow factor you want to any standard smokey eye.
Since this compact calls for dramatic eyes be sure to keep the rest of your face fresh with a simple nude gloss like Lancome's Juicy Tube Lip Gloss in Hallucination.
