New Year's Eve is upon us and whether you’re hosting a party, attending one, or hitting up the club, one thing is for sure: you have to ring in 2014 looking your best. Not only for the night but for the rest of the year too! While the ball will be dropping in Times Square these products won't drop the ball on your New Year's Eve look.

To start off, apply L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. This miracle cream primes skin while creating a smoother texture to mask any imperfections. It keeps skin moisturized and evens out your complexion without clogging pores. If you are fair skinned don’t be afraid to go for a darker shade like medium; it will allow for better coverage, after all this is going under your foundation. A plus is the cream improves skin over time, so everyday of 2014 you'll be even more beautiful then the one before. Available at Walmart for just $7.96!

If you want to rock the red lips try Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Always Red. The lip gloss like applicator allows for precision. The stain is light weight and has a silk finish to avoid that caked on look. The color is well pigmented and won’t fade after an hour or so like most lipsticks. Available at Sephora for $13.

For the eyes Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette is strongly recommended. You get twelve neutral shades and a double headed brush. Shades range from light to dark and the palette has both matte and shimmery shadows. The shimmer is not over powering, so it won't steal the show from your ensemble, but it will provide just the right amount of sparkle. This eye shadow is high quality, has a super smooth finish, and should last way past midnight. Available at beauty retailers and for $52.

Lusting after lashes that stay put? Use Revlon’s Fantasy Length fake eyelashes. The lush lashes are very flexible and the glue has an extremely sticky consistency. You won’t have to worry about losing them mid party. Available at drugstores for around $5.49.
