Electric Blue

Blue makeup is so mesmerizing and it creates so much depth in the eyes. The trick is to find a blue eyeshadow rich in pigment, or the pigment (think Dark Star 006) itself so you can create desired effect.

False Eyelashes

New Year’s Eve is a perfect night to bust out a pair of falsies! For this occasion, you can even exaggerate with unusual styles(you know the one you see in the store, and you don’t have an idea who would buy those) On the other hand, natural eyelashes can instantly enhance your look without much trouble. If you are not used to false eyelashes, read our guide on how to apply falsies.

Stained Lips

One of the biggest trends this season is perfect for the occasion. Light foundation, good highlighter and stained lips are all you need if you want your look to be fresh and minimal.  It’s all about blurred lines, so forget sharp red lips and perfect winged eyeliner.
