The best beauty inspiration for New Year's Eve
Talk about a precise ponytail. Guy Laroche's spring 2015 hair is sleek but blunt and topped off with a simple metallic barrette. 
A messy top knot is a business bun for getting business done. In Suki Waterhouse's case, the business is effortless elegance. 
A deep side part on messy hair is an easy way to get a retro cool effect, as seen at Coach spring 2015. 
Jessica Chastain's brushed back hair is a glamorous statement-making look. 
A sparkly simple headband is like a modern crown, even if you don't have the same kind or length of hair as Lupita Nyong'o. 
Loose waves, as seen at Emilio Pucci spring 2015, are a refreshingly sexy look. 
The double tie ponytail at Giles spring 2015 gives structure to long hair without sacrificing volume. 
Lea Seydoux's smoldering and sparkly purple eyes are dark enough for evening glamour but light enough to not cross into goth territory. 
The frosty white cat eye and spidery lashes at Nanette Lepore's spring 2015 presentation create a '60s look that is both innocent and striking. 
At Sophie Theallet's spring 2015 presentation, dark brown eyes stood out against contoured faces and glossed lips. 
Give your lips all the attention with a dark plum color, as Kerry Washington demonstrates. 
Dark eyeshadow doesn't have to always be so smoky. Lupita Nyong'o's defined eyeshadow strengthens her brows and enlarges the eyes.
A racing stripe of bold color on the eyelids brightens often-dark winter fashion while remaining powerfully feminine, as seen at Honor spring 2015. 
Can't decide between bold eyeliner and festive glitter? Chanel's spring 2014 beauty look proves you don't have to choose! 

Why not set the tone for an adventurous 2015 by ringing in the new year with a bold beauty trend? Bust out the silver glitter you've had hanging around for months and have been wondering what to do with and plug in that curling iron while you're at it, just in case. A sophisticated and unexpected beauty look elevates any outfit, saying, "Hello, New Year. I'm going to grab you by the balls now!"
