The Best Under-$40 Liquid Eye Shadows That'll Last Through Your Wildest New Year's Eve
It's 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and time is running out. Your best friend is getting in an Uber, en route to pick you up for the big New Year's Eve party. You're dressed in head-to-toe sequins, hair twisted into the only kind of updo that can potentially withstand the excitement of the ball drop, and yet . . . still no makeup. And you totally thought the most stressful part of your night would be choosing which bar to go to with your 30 closest friends. Then, you got to your vanity and realised ironing out a party eye makeup is harder than you imagined. Our advice: go with a liquid eye shadow.
Instead of worrying about finicky cat-eyes and messy powders, we suggest opting for a liquid eye shadow on New Year's Eve. The milky fluid is not only the easiest and fastest way to complete a full look without all the fuss, but the best formulas out there are surprisingly affordable. In fact, we've found a whole bunch of options for less than $40, ahead.
