New Year’s Eye is a great holiday for branching out of your beauty comfort zone and trying out glam makeup looks and chic hairstyles. Whatever your plans are, and whatever beauty look you choose to rock, you’ll surely want to keep your New Year’s Eve makeup looking great all night long. Before you head out the door for the evening’s festivities, simply toss a few go-anywhere makeup items into your clutch so you’ll be prepared for any touch-ups needed throughout the night—you’re essentially creating your own New Year’s Eve survival kit. With your fab look remaining perfectly maintained as the night goes on, we’re confident you’ll catch someone’s eye before the clock strikes midnight. Here are the six must-have items to ensure you—and your makeup look—survive ringing in the new year.


In our opinion, it’s not really New Year’s Eve without a bold lip color! Reach for a lipstick that will actually last until midnight, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge lipstick. This innovative formula lasts for hours and will help keep your lips nourished and comfortable. With ten different shades, you’re sure to find the right hue for you.

For a sultry look…pair a brown smoky eyeshadow, such as the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bottomless Java, with a wine-tinted, Bold Bordeaux lip.

For a romantic makeup look…pair two purple eyeshadows, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Smoldering Plum and Perpetual Purple, with a sweet, Rambling Rose lip.

For a lighter look…pair a nude eyeshadow, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eyeshadow in Endless Pearl, with the shade Unending Kiss—which just so happens to be perfectly named for NYE.


New Year’s Eve can be a long night and you might feel your skin starting to look shiny or your makeup starting to blur, especially if you’ll be on the dancefloor for most of the night. No problem—just pull out your L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder. With the power to absorb excess oil and reduce shine, this lightweight face powder is a must for any night out.


This really is the perfect holiday to amp up the shimmer, and what better way to ensure that you’ll be sparkling all night long than with a portable highlighter stick, like the L'Oréal Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks. The formula is buildable, so you can customize your level of shimmer, and the take-anywhere tool is perfect for when you’re on the go or planning to be out all night. To touch-up your look, swipe it onto high points of your face, like your brow bone and cheekbones, then blend out with your fingers for a diffused glow.


When it comes to concealer, whether you’re just touching up your makeup throughout the night or looking for a formula that will help mask any skin imperfections or discolorations, you want a product that really works—not to mention one that won’t wipe or wear off within just a couple of hours. Enter the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer. Throw it into your bag for the night and pull it out whenever you need to make any quick fixes. To use, apply directly onto any of your complexion concerns and blend with your finger. It’s that easy!


For your New Year’s Eve look, any old eyebrow makeup won’t do. Just like the rest of your makeup, you’ll want to find a brow product that will last throughout the evening and is easy to touch up if need be. Reach for the L'Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel, which will thicken your brows and last all day (and night) without smudging! It’s also sweat-resistant, in case you're lucky enough not to spend your NYE somewhere completely chilly. If you notice your brows need a touch-up, just swipe a bit of product onto sparse areas.


At the end of a long night, after lots of champagne and a midnight kiss, you’ll hardly want to perform your regular nighttime skin care routine, and we can't blame you. It’s a holiday, after all! But, you still won’t want to fall asleep with your makeup on. After the ball drops and you’re headed for bed, wipe off your makeup look with a few swipes of a makeup remover wipe, like the L'Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes. Toss a pack into your clutch for the evening and you can even get clean on the cab ride home. The wipes are easily transportable and they’ll remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup, so you can go to sleep and wake up in the new year with clean skin.
