Live it up this New Year's Eve with perfect makeup
Christmas is now over, meaning it's time for fashionistas to enjoy rocking their new duds, and more importantly, figure out what they're doing for New Year's Eve. From fabulous bashes with friends to a more laidback night with your best guy, ringing in the New Year is not complete without the perfect makeup.
Real Simple Magazine recently broke down exactly what leading ladies need to try out this New Year's in order to shine as brightly as the ball being dropped in Times Square.
Just because red may instantly work to help you look gorgeous, doesn't mean it is easy to apply. In fact, it takes a few steps to get it right.
First, you'll need to ensure your lips are soft and flake-free by wetting a face cloth with warm water and then applying it directly on your pout for one to two minutes. After the allotted time, start rubbing your lips with the cloth in circular motions to remove dead skin.
When your lips are baby soft, you'll want to line them in a nude liner in order to lock the color in so it doesn't end up on your teeth or anywhere else. When the lips are lined, swipe on the main event starting in the middle and moving out toward the edges. Apply a top layer of gloss if you're feeling a bit adventurous.
Rosy cheeks and dazzling nail polish are also a must for this event.
