Beauty: 5 Festive Products For Your New Year’s Eve Look

December 30, 2013 • Beauty, Magazine


I’m not sure where the past year went but soon it will be New Year’s Eve. Every year during the holidays there is always one more party or gathering I have to attend and needless to say, it can become exhausting. But I’m never tired of the makeup looks I can create. If you are heading to a New Year’s Eve party, there is nothing more festive than a little glitter and glowing skin. I have just the right products for you to create your fabulous 2014 look.

You must always start with flawless canvas, and because I’m so into BB Creams I was excited about Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme Makeup. If you are looking for an all-in-one product, this one is like no other. This five-in-one product is used with a buff brush. It’s is a balm, that mattifies, primes, moisturizes, protects and covers. It’s one of the first BB balms of it’s kind and I promise you will love it!

Upon seeing this next product, I squealed … literally! Stila’s new Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow will make you want to own every single color. It’s one of the most festive holiday products you can own. These buildable, high metallic cream shadows sparkle and will have your eyes looking radiant and oh so bright. The set comes with a Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer, which preps, primes and creates an adhesion to lids.

Next we need for your skin to have a glow, and I don’t have a better product than HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Powder. These universal powders, come in 6 colors, but are gorgeous on any skin tone. They highlight your face beautifully and feel very soft and luxurious…perfect for an evening glow (read more about Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder here).

Through wine sipping, hors d’oeuvre’s, and countless smooching, you need a lip color that will stay on all night. That’s why I love Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. Unlike most other formula’s that dry your lips this one is moisturizing, and doesn’t make your lips feel like paper. It’s a creamy, full-coverage lipstick that has amazing pigment and last for hours.

Last but not least is one of my favorites. No, this is not a yea- round product, but great for holidays and New Year’s Eve. Layered on top of your favorite mascara, Sephora’s Glitter Eyeliner and Mascara will give your eyes the extra pop of sparkle you will love. The applicator has both a liner brush and mascara bristles, so you can line and layer your lashes full of glamorous glitter.
