Happy New Year! I'm so sad to see 2011 go because it was THE BEST year of my life. I got to experience so many new things that I don't know how 2012 is going to top the year I just had. However, I must say that this year has started off quite well. Last night I went out with my closest friends to a New Years Eve party. I had such a fun time.
I really liked how my makeup and hair turned out. As you know, I pretty much NEVER wear colour, so I decided to change up my usual makeup for something a little more dramatic. I wish I would have taken better makeup photos, but since I got ready at night, my natural lightening was gone and flash photography never works out well for makeup photos in my experience. I self tanned two nights in a row so I'm quite dark at the moment. My skin was actually lighter than my lightest foundation, so I was in need of some colour because I didn't want to go out and buy a new foundation.

As for hair, I was wearing my Foxy Locks clip-in hair extensions. This was the first time I curled them and I used a 1" barrel curling iron to make loose waves/curls. I also parted my hair down the middle, which I never do. I was trying to recreate "Kardashian" style hair, and I think it turned out really well. The curls also lasted all night so I'm even more impressed with my Foxy Locks extensions!
I ended up throwing on tights, my favourite House of Harlow Black Resin necklace, and my new Sam Edelman spiked heels! Wish I would have got a picture of the whole thing together :( The dress I picked up at Forever21 for $11.50!
What did you do for New Years Eve?
