How to Sparkle in the New Year

2016 is already here–we know, we can’t believe it either! As we are all coming down from holiday hangovers, we need something else to help keep us going. There are ways to beat the post-holiday blues, just because the holidays are over, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to get excited about… here are our favorite ways to sparkle in the new year!



The winter weather is notorious for wreaking havoc on our skin and hair. Don’t let the weather dull your sparkle, there are ways to fight it! Quench your skin’s thirst with Birchbox Skin Quenchers—its awesome because it lets you sample a bunch of different nourishing skin products! Make sure to quench your own thirst with some hint!



Sparkle doesn’t need to be overstated, there’s a bunch of different ways to incorporate it into your glam look! Our favorite way to add some sparkle is with Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eye shadow pallette. This way you don’t ALWAYS have to have actual sparkles in your look, just add some when you feel like it!

Highlighters are a good way to add some incognito sparkle to your look. Highlighters attract light to your face, adding brightness and height to your features. So while highlighters usually don’t contain actual glitter, they will make your features sparkle 😉 Try out Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette, $80 may seem steep, but for what you are getting, it’s really a steal – it’s a $132 value—AND it includes all the highlighter products you could ever desire!


The best way to beat the post-holiday blues is to have other things to look forward to! Pack your calendar with cool events going on in your city. One of our favorite ways to find them is through Eventbrite!



When you think New Year’s Eve, you think sparkle, why should the rest of the New Year be any different? We’re not saying you need to rock sparkle head to toe, but why not add a little something to your outfit? Usually when we picture sparkly accessories, purses or clutches come to mind. We LOVE how this Kate Spade New York “tiny metro embellished leather strap watch” adds a bit of sparkly oomph to any outfit in an unexpected way!


There’s a sparkling variety of hint, hint fizz, add some hint sparkle to your New Year!
