The city is already buzzing as people start to countdown the hours until their NYE festivities. I was supposed to be heading to the True North (NYE Van) event at the waterfront but my other half is sick with who knows what and I’m stuck at home taking care of him. When I say “stuck” I really mean I’m more than happy to do it! However, a really big part of me wishes I was going to be utilizing my NYE Makeup Essentials on a night on the town!

Speaking of NYE Makeup Essentials, it’s time to talk about the key makeup items you’ll want to add to your collection for the New Year, along with the ones that will help you wow everyone you’re planning on seeing tonight.  I recently told you all about the Smashbox Light it Up collection, and for those of you who don’t know much about those items we’re about to talk about them again now.

While you may not need ALL of the Light It Up sets, I definitely recommend you get the  Eyes, Contour & Lips Light It Up Set for $29 (an $85 value!). It’s one of the best deals and it has all of your basics covered. You can also create a full glam look using this kit like I did in the video below. In addition to the Eyes, Contour & Lips Light It Up Set for $29 (an $85 value!), I also used the Studio Fix Foundation in shade 2.1. If you don’t use Smashbox foundation right now, you should seriously consider shaking up your routine. I have very sensetive skin and  have been able to get that full-coverage look without any breakouts since I switched over. Why is it the best? Well, it’s the only beauty brand with Flashbox Lighting Lab, where they test and create the perfect color in any type of light. This is why Beauty Bloggers REJOICE over this stuff.
