For me, on New Year's Eve there are two things I can't go without: my cheesy champagne purse that's been around for years. . . and well, champagne. When it comes down to it, the bubbly also turns out to be a perfect color in cosmetics. The universally flattering goes-with-everything hue typically pops up in soft pink makeup shades with a bit of shimmer — just like the drink itself.

Seriously, who doesn't look good in a neutral shimmer? When I interviewed Three Custom Color Specialists' Chad Hayduk back in August, he agreed. "Neutral colors have equal parts warm and cool," he said. "Think of true red and champagne, which is equal parts of gold and silver." Pretty nifty.

More on those true reds, here, and in the meantime, take a look at my widget below for some beauty products inspired by champagne — some even made with this delicious fizzy drink. Champagne wishes.
