New Year's Eve Beauty Inspiration
ROONEY MARA: Mara’s stint as the girl with the dragon tatt seems to have permanently infused her red carpet style, as she does glam goth ridiculously well. Her dark plum lips or burgundy eyes and always severe bun need only be accessorised by her perfectly groomed brows to look amazing.
New Year's Eve Beauty Inspiration
SCARLETT JOHANSSON: How breezy and gorgeous is Scarlett Johansson at the premiere of Her? This is basically the perfect summertime party look. A bouncy and slightly dishevelled high ponytail to keep you cool, minimal eye make-up so things don’t get smeary, a matte orangey red lip and a bit of illuminator on the cheeks.

LUPITA NYONG'O: We love how the hot new actress always experiments with new colours: she shows us how to pull off a bold lip, bright cheek and geometric cat’s eye all at once. Who says you can’t do a strong lip and a strong eye at the same time...
New Year's Eve Beauty Inspiration
KATE BOSWORTH: The actress often rocks a messy side ponytail, which is a great option for an afternoon barbecue that will turn into an all-out party. It has plenty of volume up top, so looks more party ready than the I’m-just-heading-out-to-yoga vibes that can sometimes accompany a simple plait.

LEA SEYDOUX: Lea Seydoux’s slick side-parted hairdo is the perfect option for when you're in the festival scene and haven’t had time to wash your hair for the past few days – after all why not work with greasiness rather than against it? Pair with a berry lip tint and subtly bronzed lids to appear effortlessly chic. How do the French always manage to do that?

With our NYE party just hours away, we thought we'd trawl through some of the recent red carpet snaps to seek out inspiration for something a little more left-field than the traditional smokey eye, red lip or blown-out waves. 

Here are our picks..
