3 Last-Minute Makeup Ideas for New Year's Eve

Although I make it a point to spend every New Year's Eve with family, it's safe to say that many people seek out a good party to ring in ~*the New Year*~! If you've already picked out your outfit, but just aren't sure what makeup to pair it with, here are 3 last-minute makeup ideas!

1 // Glitter-Based Smokey Eye
Let's face it: you can never really go wrong with a well-executed smokey eye. Add glitter on top of that, and you're all set for your sparkly soiree! My personal favorite glitter products to achieve the look? Revlon makes incredibly sparkly powder eye shadow, and Urban Decay makes incredible glitter eyeliner that you can also use all over the eyelid in place of a shadow.

2 // The Dark Lip
If NYE isn't the best night to go all out with your makeup look, then idk what is!!!! Go bold or go home, friends... Think: vampy reds, dramatic blacks, titillating plums. Great brands for this are NYX, Lipstick Queen, and Lorac!

3 // Ice Princess
Match icy eyes with an equally icy pout to truly capture that "I'm-so-Winter-Glam-aren't-I-just-a-shimmering-princess!!!!!" +5 bonus points to you, good madam, if you use highlighter by your brows (pssst: YouTube has many a tutorial~~) and don't forget illuminating serum on your cheeks and cupid's bow! *cue sassy hand flip*

Psst...if you have a friend who's stressing out about this NYE (we all have one...), feel free to share with her and make her life a little bit easier! ;)

What's your go-to New Year's Eve makeup look? Do you stay home with family, or go out & be wild!?

Blogger Secret Santa!

Merry Christmas, to those who celebrate! Even though I'm not a Christian, I love partaking in the cultural aspect of Christmas - the spreading joy and cheer and loving everybody like family/kind strangers in the supermarket or hair salon or something lmaooo!/friends/etc and giving/receiving gifts and eating baking cookies and just enjoying life, in general!

A bunch of bloggers decided to do a Secret Santa event, and I absolutely love what Sophia B. of Simply Sophia gave to me as my gift! You should also check out her Insta, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts! :)

How cute is this stuff!? Even the box is awwdorable and right up my alley! I've even already began writing in one of the journals - so, so cute! Sophia knew -exactly- what I would love... thank you so much!

Happy holidays, TPL readers! <3

New Posts Coming Soon!

Hey guys,

I've been busy getting my life together (aka casually slaying the last few weeks of classes~) and final exams end next week. I've got a few posts that I'd been working on, but naturally, I didn't finish them because I've been werkin' on college classes.

New posts coming soon, next week. I can't wait to share them with you! <3
