NYE: Our Top 5 picks for your MAKEUP look


How to Keep Your Lipstick On Longer 
Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder or HD Powder over the lips, through the tissue. This is a trick you'll see makeup artists doing backstage at fashion shows.  This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder.
Lightly apply a bit more lipstick and your lip color is ready to go the distance!

How to Perfect Your Highlighter
Using your finger tips or a small soft brush apply the highlighter right underneath your brow bone and blend. Sweep the highlighter down the bridge of your nose with a soft brush. If you’d rather not bring attention to your nose, you can use whatever is left on your brush from the previous step for just a hint of shimmer.

Here’s where most people make a mistake—highlighter should go above your cheekbones, not on the apples of your cheeks. Dip a wide, soft face brush into the highlighter, tap off the excess on your wrist, and apply it above your cheekbones towards your temples in a sweeping motion. 

Liquid or gel formulas can be blended in with a brush or your fingers, depending on the finish you prefer.

Shimmering Brows: If you want bold brows, just comb a little glitter through them. Now your face matches the night sky.

How to  Keep Your Mascara from smudging 
Primer serves as a foundation to hold your mascara in place, reducing the chance for bleeding and smudging. When you use primer, wait for it to dry before applying your mascara to get more staying power.

How to Keep Your Falsies on longer
You can add a second layer of glue AFTER your false lashes are placed. After they have set and are right where you want them, run a second, thinner layer on top. This helps to make sure they are going to stay put! You can run your eyeliner over the top of the glue after it dries to help keep it hidden.

Pack your Makeup bag 
At just under 9x9", try a playful pouch that's big enough to hold all your daily makeup essentials but small enough to fit comfortably in your purse.

Hint of GlitzYou don't need five pounds of glitter to make a statement. Instead, apply it on the outer corners of your eyes to add a little extra light.

Carry an emergency kit

Be sure to include cotton swabs, concealer and mascara in your makeup bag wherever you go. This way you can make on-the-spot touch-ups.
