The only thing missing from this outfit is a sparkly tiara! To ring in a new year, this metallic green dress with embellished shoulders is the perfect thing to wear for the big party. So when the clock strikes twelve, I’d be starting the next chapter on the right foot, or heel shall I say? One of the reasons why I love wearing dresses that have a lot going on is because, then I don’t need to hunt down accessories to pair with the outfit. A bold dress is statement enough to carry the entire look, but since I have my hair clipped over to the side, I wanted to wear earrings to balance out the side. I wore my pale pink tassel earrings so it does not take too much away from the awesome dress, yet they are still large enough to add drama to my bare ear.

For my makeup, I wanted to have a dark and sparkly eye look with minimal face makeup. I used a smudging brush to blur out my eye liner and applied a glitter rose shadow over my lids with a taupe base. I love using taupe as an eyeshadow base because for my skin tone, its a great in-between shade. It’s not as dark as brown and not too light to blend into my skin color. Having a taupe base can help add dimension to my eyes without too much drama.

I actually started this look with the lip color I wanted to wear. It is a blend of the flirtiest pinks in the collection. Whenever I think of a princess, their lips are always very pink, while queens are in reds (dark red/berry if you are an evil queen). A light pinky pink make you look more youthful and approachable!
