On New Year’s Eve, nobody wants to spend two hours primping and getting ready, so plan ahead by mapping out your look in advance. If you’re in the market for some new favorites to add to your makeup bag, here are a few of our favorites:
Cara Delevingne, Kim Kardashian, and Lily Collins have proven that it’s important to have your eyebrow game on point, so make sure yours achieve their full potential with Ardell Brow Pomade Dark Brown, available at CVS ($6.99, 111 Main Street, Southampton, www.ardelllashes.com).
Want lashes with extreme volume and length? Then GrandeMASCARA, available at The Quogue Salon, ($24.95, 2 Midland Street, Quogue, www.grandelashmd.com) is a must. And, not only will it leave partygoers with lash envy, its lash-boosting serum improves the appearance of your lashes over time.
When the clock strikes midnight and your date goes in for that New Year’s kiss, a pearly white smile is essential. For a grin so bright it can’t be missed, trust the Supersmile Professional Whitening System from White’s Pharmacy ($36, 81 Main Street, East Hampton, www.supersmile.com).
New Year’s Eve is the time to go bold and pick a color that will stand out in a crowd, like Osmosis Colour Lip Pencil in Sassy (the name says it all), available at More Than Skin Deep (10 Duvall Drive, Hampton Bays, www.osmosisskincare.com). If you’re sticking with a subtle hue, we love MAC Le Disko Dazzleglass in Sugarrimmed, available at Macy’s ($20, 190 West Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays, macys.com). Its sheer sheen has just the right amount of sparkle.
Options are always a good idea when it comes to makeup, so go for an eyeshadow palette. The Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palettes, available at Rite Aid ($11.49, 82 NY-27A, Southampton, www.covergirl.com), were created to be blended together, meaning you can mix and match until you find that just right shade.
Do you want to copy Taylor Swift’s winged eye liner, but have trouble getting that perfect curved line? The lash-hugging gel liner featured in Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push-up Eyeliner Mini, available at Macy’s, ($12, 190 West Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays, macys.com) makes penciling in the ideal angle super easy.
And to finish off the look, add just a hint of shimmer with BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold ($38, www.sephora.com). A swipe or two (depending on your intended level of drama) and you’re good to go.
