Another Christmas has come and gone, and we are still in recovery from dealing with bat-sh*t-crazy family members and gorging on festive food (and, okay, maybe the odd drink as well). This ‘hangover‘ can make getting yourself sorted for NYE a lot more taxing, but we’ve made it easier for you by rounding up 10 beauty buys that will bring all the shimmer and shine that you can shop right from the comfort of your home/bed. You’re most welcome!

Shine bright like a diamond this NYE

Even the most glitter-loving peeps among us know that there is a time and a place to cover yourself in head-to-toe shimmer. One of these times is New Year’s Eve. This is when we party up a storm and say ‘adios‘ to the year that was and welcome in the new, hopefully better, one. For many people, this is the only night of the year that we actually stay up until midnight (me!) and what pairs better with warm, balmy summer nights and raucous parties than glitter? Other than streamers – not much.
