The $8 Makeup Hack Your NYE Beauty Look Needs

Adrianna Barrionuevo


New Year's Eve is right around the corner, and it's the perfect excuse to dust off your favorite makeup palette and embrace a bold, party-worthy look. We're talking smokey eye, dramatic winged liner, and a bright lip. And we all know that a flawless makeup look starts with a perfect base. 

When it comes to glitter-packed eye shadow or vibrant shades, a solid primer is always a must. However, if you're a low-maintenance girl who favors the French girl approach, you probably don't have one readily available for the few times a year you go all-out in the makeup department. No worries, because the folks at The Beauty Department have a brilliant solution: Use a nude lip liner. The double-duty pencil can easily do the trick. Just cover your eyelids in a neutral shade (even better if you have one with a shimmery finish), and voilà! You've got a perfect base for your party look in no time.
