Before you know it, you’ll have bubbly prosecco in hand & legendary Bopper Dick Clark on the tube. 5, 4, 3, 2, …but before you bid farewell to the old and ring in the new, consider these glam slam beauty tips.

Jason shares…

Here’s my best beauty tip for New Year’s Eve: Imagine that your makeup look will set the tone for your new year. You want to shine in 2012, don’t you? I don’t need astrology to tell you that 2012 is yours…especially – if you start the year with fabulous makeup.

New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year to go all out on color, but I do prefer a heavier eye balanced with a lighter lip because you are sipping champagne and sharing kisses all night long — you don’t want to have to reapply too often.

Right now, I am loving our limited edition eye shadow palette for holiday — Les Ombres de Nuit #10 (212 872 2734). It has an amazing combination of a light and deep silver, cobalt blue, and aqua. These shades are a great way to smoke up your eyes with colorful drama and the combo will catch the light beautifully in any venue. Blue shadow tones are a glamorous way to play with a smoky eye and add a touch of flashiness to your overall look. Yes, “flashiness”! Isn’t that the point of New Year’s Eve?!

Adding shimmer to the décolleté and shoulders is an absolute must for New Year’s, particularly with low-cut and sleeveless ensembles.  I may bring a Météorites Perles de Nuit (212 872 2734) with me on New Year’s for any woman I spy with dull, winter skin. Guerlain does a shimmer version of our Meteorites Perles for every holiday season and this year’s could be my favorite because it gives a very natural looking glow and adds warmth to the skin. Stick to the décolleté and shoulders and skip the face because there’s a lot of dancing on New Year’s and you will want to avoid adding shine to your complexion.

Calling all: Drama Queens! If you are looking to add more drama to the mix, stir up a little excitement by adding black eye liner pencil or loose kohl liner to the inside of the lower rim of the eye. This takes the whole look up a notch. And if you simply cannot deny yourself a bold lip — first line lips for long wear and then fill in a deep plum, like Rouge Automatique in #170 (212 872 2734), or a truly vibrant pink.

The real measure of success for New Year’s Eve is how good you look the next day. No matter what condition you’re in when you get home, wash your face and apply Guerlain’s Midnight Secret Late Night Recovery Treatment.  It works overnight to energize the skin. You’ll wake up looking like you had eight hours of restful sleep. Happy New Year!
