The $8 Makeup Hack Your NYE Beauty Look Needs



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.

The self-sharpening liner allows for a smooth application every time and the formula is infused with jojoba oils and aloe. It doesn't get better.
