The beginning of a New Year is the ideal occasion to rejoice and get glammed up on New Year's Eve. You want to make sure your makeup lasts the entire evening, though, because there will be a lot of dancing, drinking, and kissing. Here are some tricks for applying makeup for a smudge-proof, long-lasting New Year's Eve celebration:


Step 1: Prep your skin


Starting with a well-prepared canvas is essential to applying makeup that lasts. Prior to applying any makeup, make sure your skin is primed, cleaned, and moisturised. This will ensure that your foundation and other cosmetics apply evenly and easily and last longer.


Step 2: Choose long-lasting makeup products


Choose cosmetics with formulas that last as long as possible for your New Year's Eve party look. This is particularly crucial for lipstick, eyeliner, concealer, and foundation. Pay attention to products that have the labels "transfer-proof," "smudge-proof," or "waterproof."


Step 3: Set your makeup


Make sure to use a setting spray to set your makeup after applying it. This will assist in keeping your makeup in place all night long and stop it from fading or smudging.


Step 4: Touch up your makeup as needed


Throughout the evening, your makeup can still start to smear or fade even if you heed all of the above advice. Make sure to include your cosmetic bag for the celebration so you may touch up your look as needed.


Eye makeup


One of the most crucial elements of a New Year's Eve party look is eye makeup. However, it's also one of the most prone to fading or smearing. Here are some tricks for applying eye makeup that is smudge-proof and long-lasting:


Applying an eyeshadow primer is the first step. This will keep your eyeshadow from creasing and help it remain in place.

Use waterproof or long-lasting eyeshadow formulas.

Set your eyeshadow using a powder that is transparent.

Use a waterproof eyeliner.

Apply a waterproof mascara.


Lip makeup


Another crucial component of a New Year's Eve party outfit is lipstick. However, it's also among the most prone to fade or transfer. 


Here are some tips for creating long-lasting and smudge-proof lip makeup:


Exfoliate your lips first. This will ensure that your lipstick applies evenly and smoothly and that it lasts longer.

Put some lip primer on. This will stop your lipstick from feathering and help it remain in place.

Use a long-lasting lipstick formula.

Blot your lips with a tissue after applying lipstick.

As needed, reapply lipstick during the evening.


Here are some more suggestions for applying makeup for a smudge-proof, long-lasting New Year's Eve celebration:


Avoid using too much powder. Too much powder can make your makeup look cakey and it can also dry out your skin, which can lead to smudging.


Use a blotting paper to remove any excess oil from your skin throughout the night.


If you're going to be sweating or dancing, be sure to use a waterproof or sweat-proof foundation.


If you're going to be kissing, choose a lipstick that is transfer-proof.
