Nail the New Year Party Look

The true beauty of the festive season is that the celebrations are never-ending. From festive catch-up drinks with old friends to family get-togethers, we have plenty of opportunities to get it right when it comes to party looks. However, with New Year’s Eve remaining one of the most anticipated nights of the year, we want to help you nail your look when it comes to the biggest party of the season.

It can seem that 31st December creeps up on us as we heave our self out from underneath our Christmas duvet full of mince pies, pressies and mulled wine. Yet, there is that all too familiar expectancy in the air on New Year’s Eve as we turn to a high-glam and dramatic party look that turns heads year on year.

At The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, we have spent years helping our guests not only feel but look they’re very best and we have developed a few top tips on the way!

  • Multi-Use Products

Fear not! You don’t have to carry around mountains of make-up if you are ‘on the move’ this festive season. We encourage you to make the most out of your makeup by discovering other ways in which you can use them. For example, we love using the Mii Makeup Radiant Blush for subtle definition on our eyelids too.


  • Glow Up

2018 has been the year of highlight and New Year’s Eve is the perfect time for your cheeks to shine brightly. An iridescent white-gold shimmer is perfect for any party approved finish. Remember to use a Finish Brush to complete the look. Focus on your cupid’s bow, cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose for the ultimate effect.


  • Go Bold or Go Home

For a high impact look, the 31st festivities are the perfect occasion to embrace the shiny red lipstick. A bold and powerful way to enter the New Year with a bang, red lips are classic but sure to make a statement. Remember to wear a lip liner to avoid any bleeding!  Mii Make-Up Alluring Lip Liner in Devotion with the Moisturising Lip Lover in Fearless makes the perfect combination.


  • It’s All About That Base!

You wouldn’t paint a cracked wall, would you? So why invest in make-up before making sure the skin is in tip-top condition. We recommend regular facials to ensure that your skin is getting the TLC that it needs, especially in the cold weather. The ESPA Advanced Radiance Facial is perfect to deeply cleanse and brighten the skin while forming a smooth base for makeup application.
