Going out VS staying in … Welcome 2012!

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” Bill Vaughn 
Another year is heading toward its end and for me this is the time of the year that is filled with events and parties! It seems like I am always rummaging around my wardrobe for an exciting outfit to wear or running late for a party. So, as the biggest party night of the year approaches, I am actually tempted to get a warm blanket, a good movie and just stay in…I am dedicating this blog to the pros of both – staying in versus going out on New Year’s Eve. Whether you like to start the new year in calm and cozy reflections of what has passed, or party the night away and rock your way into 2012 –  have fun! 

Going Out?

Makeup musts for the last night of the year: racy & ravishing red lips!

My makeup this New Year’s Eve will be clean & simple with radiant skin, black winged liner, a few falsies and a burst of POP art red on the lips! Above are my two favorite reds – POP Aqua Lacquer & Pixi Lip Blush (this one has 8 hour staying power!) I know I am slightly partial ;) but then again, to me those are the best and, believe me, I have tried everything on the market! 
Do a little lip exfoliation, either with your favorite exfoliating lip balm or by gently using your tooth brush to scrub. Moisturize after, letting lips absorb then wiping completely dry before applying the stain.
The Pixi Lip Blush formula is very lightweight so you can hardly feel you are wearing them. If you like a little extra moisture and shine, just apply POP Aqua Lacquer on top.
