Tonight’s the night! We know you Gen Girls are going to dazzle the world, but if you’re still figuring out the details of the “how” — let us show you a few of our favorite looks. For hair, we’re digging low maintenance. You want something easy, chic, and will hold through the countdown.
Messy ponies are about as effortless as it’s going to get. Swirl a few strands of hair around your hair tie to maintain that “messy” effect. No hair brush necessary. Loose waves require a little more effort, but we promise it’s worth it. After you’ve taken a few twirls with your iron, run your fingers through to keep them looking tousled. The top knot is pretty darn easy–not to mention convenient. It keeps your hair out of your face and you’ll never need to worry about the weather.
They say eyes are the windows to the soul and we can’t agree more. Keep everyone else’s on yours with a little makeup magic. A smoky eye is a definite showstopper for any party. Utilize those blacks, grays, and browns in your eyeshadow palette! A little bit of glitter could go a long way. Forgo the shadow for an eyeliner and you’ll have a shimmery peekaboo effect. Of course, you can always keep it simple with just black eyeliner. But no one said you couldn’t try a double cat eye.
This past year we’ve seen the rise of nail art. Spend your last night of 2013 paying some homage to your fingertips. Metallic nails are always fun. They’re a different take on the usual glitter. Matte can be dramatic without a lot of fuss. And of course, there’s always glitter. But instead of dabbling it on every tip–try a sprinkle here and there.
Now you’re ready to go. Have fun tonight Gen Girls and don’t forget your BCBGeneration dress.
