Looking gorgeous on NYE is a no-brainer. There’ll be lip-locking at midnight, unforgiving digital cameras present (too much flash, not enough light, too many green apple martinis=bad photos), and a long night of whatever shenanigans you plan on participating in.
What’s a girl to do?
1. Stay hydrated. It’s going to be hot, you’re going to be dancing, and you’ll probably have some lovely beverage in your hand that isn’t water. This looks like a recipe for dehydration if I ever did see one. Beauty comes from within, ladies! I hate drinking plain water, but throw some kind of low-cal fruity flavor in it and I’m good to go. David Kirsch’s vitamin super juice does the trick for me.
2. Be prepared! There is nothing worse than dancing away and all of a sudden you’ve got a blister somewhere that leaves you limping for the rest of the night. The pirate look is out this season, sister! Problem Salved is a purse friendly (it will fit into my tiniest of clutches) beauty fix that does it all. It helps blisters, fly away hairs, unruly eyebrows, etc. Just don’t put it on your lips. I mean, you can, but try explaining to your midnight kiss why your breath smells like your shoes. Just sayin’…
3. Wear something flattering. We’ve all seen *that* girl who’s wearing something a little too small or a little too inappropriate even for New Year’s Eve. If you think your beloved grandmother would have a stroke if she saw you in that dress, give it to your niece for her Barbie and buy a new dress! Also, wardrobe malfunctions a la Janet Jackson are a no-no. Gather the girls, ladies! If I can keep my extra large bust under wraps, so can you.
4. Get ready for the morning after. Sure you looked great last night, but I know you’re not going to remember to remove your makeup when you get home. The next morning, do some damage control. I don’t tell many people about my little beauty….Baggage Handler is every party girl’s best friend. It de-puffs with cucumber and hydrates the under eye area with wheat proteins for long term hydration. Just what the doctor ordered for the morning after!
