Apricot and peach tones shine this time of year with just enough sparkly to feel NYE appropriate. Swath a shimmery shadow across your lids and leave the rest of your style bare-faced to highlight the glimmer, or go bold with a heavier, deeper tone to shade the cheekbone area. Either way, this hint of tint is a simple and chic way to ring in 2017 without all the pomp and circumstance of powder and liner.

Do not forget about your crown this New Year's with the addition of tulle, feathers, rhinestones or all of the above. Let your hair's natural texture run wild and free for a rocker girl take and best of all, this style only gets better with second day hair so props to you for a next day brunch-ready 'do.

For those interested in a little seduction, a smudgy eye—lined just along your waterline—is the perfect intensity for a long and late evening. Try a luxurious cream eyeliner to keep the pigment rich and deep. Balance the heavier eye with a lighter lip in one of this season's orangey tones and keep hair fuss-free and pulled back.

If the lips have it, try a metallic blue-toned shade to standout in the crowd. The silvery-blue hue is sure to set your Instagram aflame. A few tricks of the trade before applying any powerful pigment: be sure to exfoliate and dab a touch of concealer on lips to help soak in and set the color. Keep it simple and sip cocktails from a straw if possible to keep this blue-hue lasting long past the midnight bell.
