by Megan Bakva

Without fail, I laze my way through the holiday season, in all my candy cane–crusted comforts, until December 31 when panic sets in as I scramble to come up with New Year’s makeup ideas.

Someone once told me that the way you spend New Year’s Eve is the way you will spend the year to come. That person was Lauren Conrad on an episode of The Hills and, really, who knows better than LC? So, among the cookie decorating, hall decking, ugly sweater wearing, gift shopping and making resolutions, I make it a priority (albeit a last-minute one) to go out with a bang on NYE.

Luckily, I’ve gotten pretty good at throwing together beauty looks to suit whatever plans arise that year. Using only the contents of my makeup bag and a few household items, I can hack and multitask my way to high-glam glory. And you can too. Did you wait until the last minute to make your makeup plans? Keep scrolling for the ultimate procrastinator’s guide to NYE makeup.
