2014 NYE Party Survival Guide

2014 NYE Party Survival Guide


With New Years Eve just around the corner, we know about the long night ahead. Although the party starts at 8PM, you still want to look picture perfect when the clock strikes twelve! Weve got the low-down on the ultimate melt-proof makeup tips for you!

18:30 – PRIME

While also good for achieving flawless-looking skin, primers are necessary for ensuring your makeup stays put all night long. A primer that does this and more is MAC Strobe Cream (R380). Doubling up as a primer and illuminator, it will leave you looking flawless and radiant in your NYE party pictures.



Selecting a long lasting foundation is next in your mission for sweat-proof makeup. We recommend Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation(R450). Drying off to a natural, semi-matte finish, this foundation has lasting power of up to 15 hours!

A New Years Eve party look isnt complete without sultry, sexy eyes. So, for the ultimate smoked out look, we love the Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette in Smokebox (R440). A dramatic burgundy and shimmering gold will lend a mysterious look.

Last but certainly not least is the must-have accessory of dazzling lips! Whether its a subtle nude or an intense pop of colour, you want to make sure that your lips are midnight kiss worthy. For sexy siren red, we love Lancôme LAbsolu Rouge in Rouge Amour (R375) and for a sultry nude we adore LAbsolu Rouge in Coquette (R375).



For foolproof makeup, a good setting spray comes in handy. We love MAC Studio Fix +. Its components of vitamins and minerals add radiance and keeps makeup looking refreshed. A purse friendly, 30ml version is sold for R130!


With your makeup sorted for the night, its now finally time to shake-a-leg! Be safe this holiday season BB beauties!
