Aside from shopping for or at least hanging up that Christmas dress and New Year getup, have you figured out your makeup look? The season gives a lot of possibilities: the strong lip, smokey eyes, and lots of glitters. It’s then quite hard to pinpoint which one you should go for.
This is why we put together a few photos of your favorite celebrities. Choose from this to get inspired on what you want to do for your upcoming dinners and the cocktail hours. We also added vital products to help you pull it off.
