5 Party-Hopping Essentials for New Years!

Gilt’s glam Lifestyle editor, Chassie Post, reveals her on-the-go beauty arsenal for celebrating (and dancing!) the night away.

With New Years just around the corner, here's some party perfect beauty inspiration. Chassie Post, lifestyle editor of Gilt (one of our go-to fashion shopping sites) knows a thing or two about getting ready on the fly. We asked her to divulge her on-the-go beauty arsenal—items with big beauty benefits that are small enough for a sexy clutch.


Christopher Drummond Beauty Enduring Eyeliner - Absolutely Black
I never go anywhere unless I am armed with my trusty black eye liner. This eye liner is not only waterproof, but budge-proof, making for less time spent in the powder room reapplying and more time on the dance floor. Even though this vegetarian-based eye liner is all natural, it still creates jet black, smoky-eyed drama!


Christopher Drummond Beauty, Pressed Eyeshadow, Aphrodite
This is the perfect shade for a smoky eye. Loving the deep, very on-trend navy pigment with a glamorous shimmer—stays on without creasing or fading the whole night long. Plus, it comes in a chic little compact with a mirror—and it fits neatly in my clutch.



RMS Living Luminizer
I am obsessed with this highlighter and love its accentuating sheen and glow (its made with nourishing oils and crushed mica). I use it on my cheekbones, temples, brow bone and add a touch above my brows for some dewy illumination.



Lip2Cheek, Smile
For a dewy, fresh look, a cream blush is my go-to fave. This does double duty as both a cheek and lip color, and I also like to give a dab to the outside creases of my eyelids to amp up my eyeshadow. I've been loving coral pinks on the apples of my cheeks this season, plus, it's hydrating (with jojoba seed oil & organic shea butter) and it stays put. 


Innocent Lip Gloss, Soft Pink
Last but not least, is an all-purpose lip gloss. The soft pink sheer hue is the perfect topper and blends well with other colors, leaving my lips shiny and moisturized. There are all sorts of great ingredients in this lip gloss—it looks as good as it feels!
