New Year's Eve Make-Up Tips

This New Year's Eve, have some fun with your make up. The New Year is a time for change and rejuvenation. This is the time to experiment with your look and try make up that you normally wouldn't wear during the rest of the year. Wow your friends and co-workers with a fun and flirty look that will get the right kind of attention everywhere you go. Below are some make up tips that will help you look fun and fabulous this New Year's Eve.

1. Play up the eyes: There are so many possibilities to be creative and have fun with your eye make up, and New Year's Eve is the perfect time to do it. Create an intense smoky look with different shades of black and gray eyeshadow by blending them with a contour brush or your finger. Apply a dark gray as the base color, a soft black on the inside of your eyelid, and a darker black on the outside of your eyelid. Finish by adding a clear shimmer on your entire eyelid.

You can also have fun by matching your eyeshadow to the color of your clothes. Whatever the color, get a few different shades of the same color shadow, and do it the same way you would for a smoky eye, by blending the colors, with the darkest color on the outside of the lid. Finish with glitter and a thin line of black eyeliner. Having a large assortment of eyeshadow can be expensive, so getting wholesale cosmetics like eyeshadow is definitely the way to go.

2. Play up the lips, too! Normally, any fashion expert would advise choosing one feature, the eyes or the lips. But on this one day a year, pretty much anything goes. You don't want to use a lipstick that's too dark if you're also wearing heavy eye make up, but you can still wear a dark color on your lips and look fabulous. If your focus is on the eyes, choose a color that has a lot of shine in it, rather than a matte lipstick. I prefer the color stay lipsticks with the color on one end and the gloss on the other.

3. Bronzer: Bronzer is great for any time of the year, but especially when you want to add some glamour to your look. Apply your concealer or foundation first. Skip the powder. Use a multi-shade bronzer with a very wide applicator brush and apply it to your entire face with a few light strokes. You don't need much bronzer to get the full effect, especially if it has some shimmer in it.

4. Glitter! I'm not sure when else you can get away with this unless you're 4 years old, except for New Year's. Now, you do want to be conservative with this, because there is a fine line you can cross and end up looking like a made up drag queen. Dab a little glitter on your finger and apply small amounts on the outer creases of your eyelids, your wrists, shoulders, and chest.

Most importantly, have fun!

Getting your cosmetics wholesale from an online retailer like will save you time and money, and you'll get all the make-up you want straight to your door. Try wholesale cosmetics and you'll never get your make-up from the department store again.
