We asked our EIC Kathy Fielder for a few ideas on her beauty regimen and how she would put herself together for New Years Eve. Her advice to us was to focus on the party itself, and let that dictate how you put your outfit and yourself together. Whether you are attending a party at someone’s home or are out on the town or somewhere in between, here are KF’s tips and tricks to slay your beauty regimen This NYE.
Your eyes are maybe your very best asset. There is merit to the old adage,
the eyes are the window to the soul.” Whether you like a classic eye or can rock a little glam, the key for your New Years Eve eye makeup is to make sure you add a little drama, whether its classic or a little over the top. While you may not be going to a formal event or wearing sky high Jimmy Choos, playing up your eyes with a little extra liner or even lashes finishes off your look and says I’m ready to celebrate. See how to put it all together here.
