Whether you want to cry because it sucked or cheer because it was one of your best years, 2011 is leaving us. I love when the new year rolls around because it’s always a sign of renewal. Everyone’s slates are wiped clean when the clock hits midnight. So, let your makeup be as exciting as the anticipation of a new year! If you don’t feel so inclined to do an entire look, settle for pretty nail polish or mascara with a ton of volume. Whichever way, it’s your year to shine!
If it’s an eyeshadow look you’re going for, Wet ‘n Wild’s Color Icon Icon Collection Eyeshadow Set, Blue Had Me at Hello ($4.99 on drugstore.com) is an absolute beaut. This palette contains eight gorgeous eyeshadows of various textures. But don’t worry—if you aren’t an eyeshadow-applyin’ master, the palette conveniently has suggested locations for where each shadow should go. How sweet and considerate of you, Wet ‘n Wild.
