12.31 Last Minute NYE Makeup Ideas
Waited until just before the ball drops to decide what to wear for New Year’s Eve?  No problem!  Here are three easy makeup looks to compliment your celebration, whether you’re sipping champagne at home, hitting the town, or hosting a soiree.  Pick the feature you want to accent and then play it up with one of these easy looks:

  • Bold Lips – This is the easiest look to pull off in a hurry!  Keep the rest of your makeup simple and understated while opting for a power pout.  Pick a bold lip color like classic red or a seasonal dark berry.  Scrub lips with a soft toothbrush to remove flakes, line, and then apply color using a lip brush.  Apply a dab of gloss to the center of your bottom lips for a little glow.  Don’t forget to pop on the cap and slip your brush in your purse for touch ups.
  • Sparkly Eyes – Nothing says fun like an eye full of sparkles.  Find a gold, bronze, or sparkly black and create a simple smoky eye.  Complete your eye look by stamping on a brown or black liner with a flat liner brush as close to the lash line as possible.  Finish with a few coats of mascara.
  • Statement Brows – Go classic with bold brows paired with a classic makeup look like nude lips and a simple winged liner.  Use a lash and brow groomer to comb through brows, then apply a tinted brow gel using a mini angled brush.  Make sure to apply color to eyebrows instead of the skin.  Go over brows one more time with a powder brow color and pile on mascara.

No matter what your look, don’t forget the false lashes! NYE is the perfect time to pop on a pair of fake eye lashes!  Need some more ideas?  Check out our video tutorials here!
