New Year's Eve Makeup Tips

Have you recovered from Christmas?  I almost am.  My tree and decorations are still up, but I've been just relaxing and trying to unwind.  I spent some late nights packing orders for my Etsy shop, and I was mentally and physically drained.  Hopefully, this week I can get some major organizing and purging done and then be back to my regular schedule the next week.

One thing I am doing this week is looking over my yearly blog stats, so I would really appreciate it if you would take a moment to fill out my survey.  It will just take a minute, and it will help me learn more about my readers.

Do you go out for New Year's Eve?  I'm married with three kids, so we usually stay home.  The kids usually do stay up until midnight, and we celebrate with some sparkling juice and snacks.  It's been a few years since I've gotten to go out on NYE, but if I did, I'd want to look amazing to ring in the new year.  Here are some New Year's Even makeup tips to help you look stunning!
