I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate. The season is truly magical, right? I think I was just as excited for Christmas morning as an adult watching B open his gifts as I was as a child. Right before we left for Pittsburgh, I chatted about my love for the new Amope products and how fun it is to party prep with them, so now it’s time to talk about our makeup routine for New Year’s Eve! (And you can enter to win these 2 really cool products below!)
First and foremost, does anyone else feel like they are in limbo between Christmas and New Years Eve? It’s almost like I’m trying to push forward with goals, cleaning, life in general, but I’m stuck. B is home from school until the 4th and I’m just kinda waiting for our regular routine to pick up again.
Anyways, I wanted to share two MAJOR beauty products that I have added to my beauty bag that will get you through the big night with minimal touch-ups. So whether you are out partying and drinking champagne or toasting at midnight with your loved ones on the couch, your face will be flawless!
A great night starts with a great base. So, after you apply your regular daily moisturizer (right now I am obsessed with this Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Daily Lotion), apply this Lumene Bright Now Blur Line and Pore Minimizer. Then once you add your foundation, you will notice how the Lumene Bright Now instantly smoothes out any fine lines on your face, hides those unwanted pores, and keeps your makeup, including foundation, intact for the whole night. As a little added bonus, it helps to control shine overall and gives your face a great matte base for applying all of your colors.
Once your makeup is done to your liking, you are going to obviously finish off your New Year’s Eve look with a great lip. The last thing that we want whenever we are spending time with people that we love on this special night is to be thinking about running off somewhere to touch up our lipstick. So, I recommend one of the newest plum shades from Smashbox! I wore the shade TABLOID the whole time we were away and got so many compliments! I will confess though, trying out this vibrant shade was a little bit out of my comfort zone, but there is no better time than the holidays to experiment with something fun and bright!
