It is finally New Years Eve, Millennials and I cannot tell you how excited I am for a new year to begin. Before it does, we all have to end this year right by having a great time tonight with our friends and family. But how do you stand out when everyone is shimmering with gold and silver sequins? By having the perfect makeup, of course. Below, are 5 of my best kept secret products that will help you shine amongst the stars.
#1: The e.l.f. Clay Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is my #1 for a reason. The colors are very rich so each color really pops, which allows your eye color to really stand out. The powders are silky smooth so they all blend quite well so you can easily achieve a bold look for tonight or a more natural look for any other time of the year. Here is a quick tip for a very intense color: wet your brush before applying your eyeshadow. Works like a charm.
But where does the clay come in? In this color palette, Kaolin Clay helps to keep the color locked in place all night. So, you can dance the night away and still look great for the ball drop. You can have this perfect palette for only $6, here.

This is awesome for any New Years Eve party. I have always loved the slight glittery eye and this is perfect eyeshadow to achieve it. It is easy to apply with a brush or even your finger! If you would like to have a more over the top look, it is easy to layer over and over until you can achieve your desired look.
What is super awesome about this eyeshadow is that it can also double as a super bold eyeliner when you use an edged brush. The whipped gel texture is light and fluffy so it won't feel like it is weighing your eyelids down either. And for only $3 on e.l.f.'s website, you can't pass up this shimmery eyeshadow.
#3: The e.l.f. Thick Tip Intense Ink Eyeliner
Of course, on New Year's Eve, everyone wants to have a bold look. (Unless, you are me, I like bold all year long!) So, with this thick tip ink eyeliner, it glides on quite smoothly without smudging, feathering, or running.
As an added plus, the formula is quick drying! This allows a long lasting lash line (say that 5 times fast) and that is the perfect, rich color. For $3 on the e.l.f. site, this pen is perfect for any occasion.
#4: The e.l.f. 3-in-1 Mascara
Looking to lengthen, define, and volumize your lashes all in one simple step? Then the e.l.f. 3-in-1 mascara is definitely for you. The shape of the brush is unique. This, along with the silicone bristles allows each and every lash to get that ultra-dramatic look that we all love.
This is also a long-lasting formula so no need to reapply half a dozen times throughout the night. It is also smudge and budge free so don't worry about your lashes ending up around your eyes. This is a great product to have for only $3, here.
#5: The e.l.f. Sculpting Face Brush
The Sculpting Face Brush is a must have for any Millennial. This brush's shape is contoured and curved so that it can hug the face to expertly sculpt and blend almost any product such as powders, liquids, and creams.
This brush can also be used to contour cheekbones, define the nose, and minimize the look of jawline definition for precision application. You can have this brush for only $6, here.
With all of the glitz and glamor of New Years Eve, it can be very easy to sort of blend in with everyone else. But with the right makeup and techniques, you will be able to shine among the stars. Have fun tonight and every night with all of these awesome e.l.f. products, Millennials!
