Make sure these New Year’s Eve beauty essentials are tucked away in your purse this year, and you’ll ensure you look fab all night long – no matter how long you stay up to ring in the new year.
1. Blotting Papers
To absorb excess oil and shine without ruining your makeup, keep a packet of blotting papers stashed in your purse. Whether you’re party hopping all over town or need to look perfect for that New Year’s eve kiss, blotting papers (like these from Boscia) will ensure a matte, gorgeous complexion all night long.
2. Volumizing Powder
You want your style to last all night long, but if your hair falls limp and flat somewhere between cocktails and dancing, give your ‘do a boost with a volumizing powder you can tuck in your purse. Just a little of Not Your Mother’s Girl Powder Volumizing Hair Powder will instantly add volume to limp locks, ensuring you’ll be rockin’ your holiday hair until your next shampoo.
3. Lip & Cheek Stain
Minimize the amount of touch-up’s you need during the night with a two-in-one lip and cheek stain, such as Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink. A long-lasting lip and cheek stain is great for a New Year’s Eve party, because you won’t have to run to the bathroom for touch-up’s every hour and your makeup will stay fresh and gorgeous until the wee hours of the morning.
4. Foot Petals “Heavenly Heelz”
Chances are, you’re wearing a killer pair of heels and partying until the wee hours of the morning – save your soles with these Foot Petals, which help prevent blisters, cushion feet and prevent your foot from sliding out of those strappy sandals you just had to have. Trust me – when you’ve been dancing up a storm, you’ll be thankful you had these on hand!
