According to The Makeup Gourmet, Chris Scott, if ever there was a night that women (or men for that matter) want to look gorgeous, New Years Eve is it.
“It is always good omen to start the upcoming year off right by looking beautiful. Though this is often easier said than done, there are a few simple guidelines that will help keep everyone looking and feeling their absolute best,” Mr Scott, added.
Here are the Makeup Gourmet’s Top Five Hot Tips for Unbelievable New Year’s Eve Makeup, along with a few helpful tips on what to avoid:
Go for the Glow
Do try to make the look of the skin a ‘glowy’ one. Adjust the look to the fact that New Year’s Eve means dancing and flirting and the skin will show it. This way the more fun one has, the more their body temperature will enhance the look.
Try to avoid matte looking skin as most people will be fighting it all night long. Having to powder and re-powder throughout the night to maintain the look is such a hassle. It is New Years Eve and one should liberate themselves from this burdensome task.
Monroe not Manson Mascara
If possible wear waterproof mascara or false lashes. For those who just can’t see yourself in false lashes, get a highly-rated waterproof mascara avoids the inevitable meltdown once the party kicks into high gear. For others, false lashes are the best way to glam up a look and avoid mascara altogether.
Remember – avoid standard mascara. New Year’s Eve is a night to look like Marilyn Monroe not Marilyn Manson.
Toss the Gloss
By all means do wear a high-sheen permanent lip color. The beauty of this formula is that there is no transfer or loss of color to regardless as to where individual lips happen to have been previously. Drugstores carry vibrant inexpensive colors so it’s a guilt free purchase even if only used for a night.
This of course means it’s a night to toss the lip gloss, so there will be no need for annoying touch ups. Plus it leaves a forensic trail of where and who anyone might have been playing with.
Damn the Glitter
Select a -like eye shadow and face brighteners. These products give the full effect of glitter without the hazard of getting anything in one’s eyes.
Avoid at all costs loose glittery products above the eyes. It is fun to be glittery all over, however, one small piece in the eye and the rest of New Year’s Eve could be spent hunched over the sink trying to flush it out.
Leave Luxury Behind
Avoid packing high end makeup with you for New Years Eve to touch up with. Chances are a prized lip liner will end up in a cab, a pressed powder case will shatter or a favorite discontinued lip-gloss will be lost forever.
Mr Scott, said: “I do hope that everyone follows these simple tips from The Makeup Gourmet, as it means there will be no need to carry luxury cosmetics when a cheaper version will do the job fine.
“It means everyone arrives at the party looking great, bring in the New Year looking even better, and feel their best as the clock strikes midnight for the dawn of 2010.”
