How to have a great New Year’s Eve

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!

Bliss Kisses!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
