It's NYE, time to get ready!

This year I'm bummed to say I most likely will be taking it easy this NYE because I've been sick...sad face.  Thankfully Tiffany will be going out and having some fun.  Last year we were lucky to spend the Holiday together.  One of our favorite parts of the entire night is getting ready.  Isn't it yours?  

We've put together some of our favorite makeup products that we use while getting ready.    The products listed are mainly for a smokey eye, which is our favorite.  If you 've never tried a smokey eye before, NYE is a wonderful time to try it out.  {There are several tutorial links at the end of this post}

Our favorite base:

Did you know that now you can customize your own color palette at MACI re-created a palette that I bought a while back that has the colors for the perfect smokey eye:

 Here is a wonderful day to day palette too: 

This color is best for the outer edge of the eye:

If you don't already have a favorite eyeliner, this one by Stila is wonderful and easy to use:

But, if you rather not use any eyeliner, you can use a small brush to apply black shadow to trace the upper and lower lashes {whatever you have at home will work}.  All products seem to add up so best to use what you already have on hand!

Favorite Mascara to finish it off:
If you really want to get crazy, false eye lashes can make a smokey eye look dramatic fast.  These ones by Shu Uemura are wonderful and will last FOREVER:

If you plan to try out a smokey eye this year, you can read step by step instructions here, here or  here.  To finish off a smokey eye we love doing a nude lip.  Typically you don't want to do big lips with big eyes.  

Oh and any form of these would due to finish off a smokey eye...a girl can dream:

In many cultures, wearing red brings good luck in the new year!

Thank you for making Deliciously Organized wonderful in 2009! We hope everyone has a safe, fun and spectacular NYE! 

Happy New Year's Eve!


  1. my college roommate was the make up queen. She used to give us all "smokey eyes" every weekend:)

    Love the sparkle shoes! It's like Wizard of Oz for big girls. Sorry you're sick! Feel better soon-

  2. I hope you have a great NYE (even if you're not feeling the best). Thanks for the make-up tips. I bought the Dior masacara based on your earlier suggestions and I love it (same with the MAC eye shadow that I won from you guys - LOVE it!). Thanks for making me more presentable :)

    Happy New Year! I hope you feel better soon.

  3. Those are some outstanding shoes!! Feel better and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

  4. I am really loving all the eyeshadow! Now I'm going to have to try them!

    Happy New Year!

  5. Wish I was going out in my sparkly shoes and smokey eyes. Unfortunately, my NYE will be alot more low key and probably involve watching the ball on TV :) Happy 2010!

  6. Oh I dream of those shoes for my wedding, but they are too tall for me :( Love this post and I am so excited you can make your own palette at MAC now. I am a makeup junkie!

    Have a very happy New Year and feel better soon so we can all go out again!

  7. I feel all decked out if I manage to get a coat of mascara on, but those shoes I am all over, ha! have a happy new year!

  8. If you're going to do fake eyelashes, shu uemura is the only way to go!

  9. Ok MAC cream color base in "HUSH" is amazing! Makes your skin look flawless and glowing!

    Happy New Year!

  10. OMG, I would kill a small, feral animal for the red Christian Laboutins.

  11. Love the glitterazzi and shimmerazzi, is there ever too much for New Years Eve? Love the make up tips and yes I love some long, lush, lashes! Happy New Year sisters!

  12. Hope you're feeling better soon, Happy New Year!

  13. Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2010 :-)
    Get well soon. Cheers, Karen
