New Year’s Eve Fashion for Moms

New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to get fabulous.

Especially for Moms.

Whether you (miraculously) found a babysitter and are actually going out for the night, or staying in with your partner and a cold bottle of champagne, why not try one of the latest beauty & fashion trends while ringing in the new year?

Sure, you spend your days in really, really old yoga pants, and your idea of make-up is Chapstick and running your less-sticky hand through your hair a couple times.

But that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to shine!

With a little inspiration from Pinterest, some of my Mom blogger friends and I put these trends to the test, proving you, too, can make them work. So get on it!

I’ll be staying in on New Year’s Eve, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make the glittery lips look work from my couch. Look out, honey: it’s time for a count down kiss!

crimped hair

Alicia of NapsHappen hasn’t used a crimping iron in twenty years, but that’s no reason to shy away from the re-emergence of this wavy trend! Dust that bad boy off, break out the can of Aqua Net & go to town!

Robyn of HollowTreeVentures has never shied away from her artistic side. It may not be butterfly season in her neck of the woods, but that didn’t stop her from crafting a solution to her headpiece needs.

Trend #4: THE WET LOOK

multi-color mani

ToulouseAndTonic has fingernails and her kids love to paint. What better than to let them give her THE manicure of the season?

Trend #6: OMBRE LIPS

Rebecca of FrugalistaBlog has proved her beauty and fashion sense many times over. Now her ability to pull off the ombre lip look proves you can do it, too.

Nothing is more on-trend than facial hair.
No one makes it sexier than Kelley of Kelley’s Break Room.

Trend #9: BOLD BROWS

If you have beautiful eyes like Kerry of HouseTalkN, a great way to draw attention to them is simple make-up with a bold brow. Don’t you agree?

patterened leggings

Great legs, like those of Jessica from FourPlusAnAngel, can rock patterned pants. No one will ever be able to tell they’re homemade. No one.

Andrea of Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess makes the right call: this classic color combo begs to be paired with dancing shoes!

cat eyes

Anna of MyLifeAndKids is dedicated to looking gorgeous. She used liquid liner to draw on her cat’s eyes, and a pair of pliers to yank out her two front teeth for the trend-setting gap-toothed look. Anyone with a pair (and a strong grip) can do it!

Trend #14: SALLY DOLL


Taking inspiration from her kids’ toy collection, Meredith of MomOfTheYear masters the most youthful look of all: re-creating a Sally Doll on her own face.
It’s like she’s a kid again!

    Since I ascribe to the old adage that MORE IS MORE, I think I’ll try them all on New Year’s Eve. Even though I’m staying home. It’ll take me so long to get ready, I’ll have to take off my butterfly net and go to bed immediately after the final touch. Cheers and Happy New Year!

    Holy crap, seriously??? Gap teeth are a trend? Do you have to have the cat eyes? Cause I can draw those on and be so trendy it hurts!

    That is lough-out-loud hysterical! Sorry I didn’t join on the fun! Maybe next year!

    The “wet look” slayed me. With that and all the glitter and netting and butterflies and bright colors it’s like the practical jokesters of the fashion industry are trying to turn us into psychedelic mermaids. You guys are awesome! Happy New Year! (I’ll be rocking the “asleep” look this NYE…)
