Life-of-the-Party-Sparkle: 6 Makeup Musts for New Year’s Eve

By now, we bet you’ve got a great dress, sky-high heels to match, and a plan for gorgeous, happy-new-year hair.

But what about your makeup? Hopefully you already have your metallic Stila foil eye shadow ready to go. (If not, run out and snap one up STAT!) If you want to really sparkle on New Year’s Eve, do you have the proper products in your beauty arsenal?

We have some suggestions. Check out our six wonderfully festive, life-of-the-party picks.

1. Bobbi Brown Luxe Sparkle Powder, $44
This lovely light powder produces an all-over shimmer that’s sexy, but still subtle. Add a light dusting to your eyes, cheeks, neck and décolletage. We’re in love with this easy-to-apply (and purse-friendly) instant shimmer adder.

2. Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer, $28
Add a little of this argan-oil-infused illuminizer to your moisturizer or foundation, and you’ll get a fresh, dewy face that radiates a healthy, youthful glow.

3. Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Rosy, $22
Complement your illuminizer with this sheer color stick, which contains just a hint of sparkle and can be used on both your cheeks and lips.

4. Stila Sparkle Luxe Gloss in Dazzling, $21
This gloss’s rich texture and ultra fine pearl shimmer will add a decadent, glistening sparkle to any pair of party-ready pouts. Vitamin E is added to keep your lips moisturized throughout the night.

5. Too Faced Glitter Glaze Transforming Shadow Top Coat, $21
You can layer it over your existing shadow for an added dose of shimmer, or use it on its own for a subtler lid look. There are two shades to choose from: Silver Spark (pictured) and Goldie Rocks.

6. Essie Luxe Effects Nail Polish in Jazzy Jubilant, $9 each
Essie has introduced six new shades to its Luxe Effects collection, and we love them all. The color-fueled, chromatic glitter topcoat of Jazzy Jubilant makes it the perfect polish for a New Year’s Eve night out.
