New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and when it comes to getting ready for the ball to drop, you want to look your absolute best.
While you definitely don’t want to go with a look that’s so far out of the box that you’ll never be comfortable, you do want to take your everyday look and elevate it so that when the people around you catch a glimpse, you leave them wondering…
How does she do it and how can I look that amazing?
Well we’ve got five tips to help you do just that to help you perfect your makeup and stay looking glam long past midnight.
#1 – Get Camera Ready
Before applying your foundation, be sure to swipe on a primer to minimize fine lines and ensure that your makeup lasts through all the hours of the night.
Our Camera Ready Face Primer.
It delivers a natural makeup base, with a matte finish, that will leave your skin flawless and ready for anything this New Year’s Eve might bring.
#2 – Let Your Glow Out
When preparing to ring in the New Year, you want to shine as bright as the holiday lights surrounding you. And, the best way to do that is to use a luminizer either under or mixed with your foundation.
This one step gives you the lit-from-within, dewy glow and instant highlights.
That’s why we recommend our Sheer Glo Lotion in either Glo Pink or Bronze, depending on your skin tone, to illuminate and brighten your complexion and amp up your glam.
#3 – The Eyes Have It
New Year’s Eve is all about enjoying yourself and stepping boldly into the next chapter of your life, so don’t be afraid to start with your eyeshadow choice.
Layer on rich shades of brown to go beyond the traditional smoky eye and get a look that is gorgeous no matter what your skin tone.
Try out our highly pigmented eye shadows in a combination of Eyes Closed, Toffee, and Fixated for an instantly upgraded look.
Also, don’t forget to choose an eyeliner that keeps going as long as the celebration too. Our recommendation is our Miracles & More Longwear Eyeliner, which is easy to apply, waterproof, and smudge-proof.
#4 – Layer Your Shimmer
For even more dazzle, sweep a liquid highlighter right under your eyebrows, beneath your brow bone, along the inner corners of your eyes, above you cheekbones and Cupid’s bow, and down the bridge of your nose.
This adds a finishing touch to your makeup and gives you a seamless shine.
The one we recommend is our Blak Liquid Shimmer Eye Lights, which is infused with light-reflecting pigments to last for a full 18 hours.
#5 – Show Off Your Lips
Finally, it’s important to show off your gorgeous lips.
Whether you choose a neutral shade like our Miracles & More French Kiss or go bold, red with Russian, you want people to notice your pout.
But, before you apply that lipstick, there’s one important step that you don’t want to forget…
A Lip Primer.
That’s because a high-quality primer, like our Eye & Lip Primer, can set your lipstick and keep it from feathering, in spite of the party snacks and glasses of bubbly you enjoy this New Year’s Eve.
Of course, there’s more to looking glam on New Year’s Eve than your makeup, so to learn more about how to look your best, be sure to check out our 6 Easy Tips to Get Glowing Skin for the New Year.
