Once again we are at the dawn of another new year. With the holidays behind us and friends and family still on our minds, New Year’s Eve provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon years past and to ponder with excitement the New Year ahead.
It’s with this excitement and anticipation that we begin to think about our New Year’s Eve makeup and attire. There are so many makeup options to choose from! Smoky eye, natural eye, red lips, natural lips, whatever your makeup of choice SkinStore has you covered. Here are some of our favorite makeup kits that provide endless beauty options for you.
For longer lasting and true color wear, we always suggest that you begin with shadow primer and a foundation primer. Primers will give you a beautiful smooth canvas that will ultimately give you flawless looking skin once your makeup application is complete.
Starting with the eyes, one of the most popular looks that remains a staple for an evening party look is the smoky eye, The Too Faced Smokey Eye Collection gives you a color palette for three smoky eye looks, Day, Classic and Fashion. The kit includes 9 colors and three “how to” application cards so that anyone can achieve the look they desire.
Moving on to all over beauty, the Laura Geller Baked and Beautiful Kit gives you all the basic’s from a primer, to bronzer, blush, eye makeup and the fantastic Dream Creams Lip Palette. The color options in the kit provide you with everything you need to go from the office to the afterhours New Year’s Eve party with ease.
If you need a cute but practical travel ready kit, the Too Faced Fierce and Flawless Value Set is perfect! It comes with a leopard print wristlet, blush, eye shadow, mascara, and primer, that is pretty much everything you need for an evening out or an overnight New Year’s Eve destination.
For a more natural look that can easily go from day to night the Philosophy Supernatural Play Time to Party Time set comes with everything you need for flawless radiant looking skin. The colors in this palette are highly pigmented for true color that stays put.

All of us have beauty tips that we’ve picked up along the way that have helped us out in a pinch or have provided beauty relief in a new or previously undiscovered way. Extending makeup wear is a popular subject as most of us are dashing from place to place with little time to fuss with our makeup all day. Look pretty as a plum all day long with these quick tips!
If you suffer from runny eye makeup change to waterproof liquid liner for extended stay put power and all day wear with no re-application.
For all day wear lashes that can last through the office, to the gym and then out to dinner waterproof mascara is your best friend. It will stay put all day and doesn’t require touch up.
Lip stain is perfect for extended wear. Unlike lipstick which is topical, lip stain will actually stain your lip with a light pigment that will last much longer than traditional lip gloss or lip stick. In a pinch, use your lip stain as blush that too will stay in place all day
Use primer before applying your foundation and your makeup will look better and stay much longer
And finally, if you have oily skin, don’t reapply makeup all day, blot it with oil absorbing blotting linen. In a pinch, tear off a piece of a ladies room seat cover and blot away

We all want that “au natural” look, but how are you supposed to get that with thick, goopy foundations and cakey powders? No one wants to look like they have a mask on. Our make-up should enhance us, not hide us! The make-up Gods are shining down on us once again and have brought us the Luminess Air System.
You can apply all of your make-up, from foundation to blush and bronzer! You can even get your bronze goddess on with the tanning options Luminess Air offers. The easy to use airbrush tool sprays the Luminess make-up in sheer layers, concealing imperfections and diminishing wrinkles along the way, leaving your skin looking flawless and beautiful.
Luminess has foundations to match any skin tone, as well as blushes, bronzers, their special “Pearlizer,” which acts as a highlighter, and a primer/moisturizer that is perfect to use before or after foundation application.
Spray your way into a flawless looking complexion, and stay tuned for a special Pink Luminess Airbrush GIVEAWAY!
It’s tough having oily skin… a shiny midday forehead doesn’t scream “fresh & polished”. To make foundation and powder last longer and go farther I always invest in a good primer, but in my opinion the most important step in a makeup regimen is the setting spray. You don’t have to have oily skin to use a setting spray to make your makeup last. If your skin is dry you probably know how uncomfortable that tight, powdery face is… and it surely doesn’t look any better than it feels. A spritz of setting spray allows for your skin to look beautifully radiant and smooth while allowing for your makeup to last and last without touchups, no matter your skin type!
Our favorite and best-selling makeup setting spray line is Skindinavia. It’s a tired and true celebrity and makeup artist favorite. In fact, Scandinavia is used backstage at huge theatrical productions, and it’s always a favorite at fashion week across the world.
Recently Skindinavia updated their packaging to sleek black bottles, and the best part is that you’re now getting MORE for LESS! At $39 a pop these 8 ounce bottles are a steal. Oily skinned gals (and many guys, too) really love the No More Shine Makeup Finish, it’s great as a midday spritz that allows makeup to adhere better to the skin, and it works wonderfully for those on TV and on the stage. The Skindinavia 10 Years Yonger Makeup Finish is amazing for those of us concerned with lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and scars. Because this spritz cools the skin upon application it rapidly sets powder and foundation in a smooth layer, rather than allowing the skin’s heat to push the product into crevices.
A special occasion calls for very special makeup, that’s why the Skindinavia Bridal Makeup Finish is our go-to for exceptional events. This color dispersing mist helps to keep blended coverage of foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer through perspiration and tears! Great for wedding photography and always a prom and homecoming must!

Thanks to Luminess Air we can all have a VIP ticket to flawless, red-carpet ready, celebrity skin from the comfort of our own home. This top of the line air brushing system is easy to use and the results are great. The coverage is customizable and it perfectly blends in one quick and painless application. You can go from foundation to blush to bronzer and then to a full body tan all with one system.
Luminess Air foundation does not cake like traditional makeup while it minimizes the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Also a great benefit is that it eliminates the risk of cross-contamination that traditional make-up brushes and sponges can’t guarantee (great for acne-prone skin!).
Welcome to a new approach of make-up application that hydrates, accentuates and illuminates better than we thought possible.
