New Year's Eve is upon is and, TBH, I spend more time deciding how to do my eyeshadow than wondering who I'm going to kiss when the ball drops. If you're planning to slay (and maybe play) this Dec. 31, check out these New Year's Eve makeup ideas and get your look in order. With less than a week left until 2018, there's really no time to waste.

Choosing how to do your makeup on an average day can be daunting. Do you pick the nude or the pink lip? Do you stick to your everyday eyeshadow, or  attempt a graphic wing this morning? Picking which look you want to  usher in the new year wearing can be damn near impossible. I bought my sexy leopard-spotted outfit over a week ago, and I'm still oscillating between a bold red lip à la Dita von Teese or a dramatic cat eye liner like the Marc Jacobs runway models. If you're majorly indecisive (like me) or unsure of your desired 2018 vibe, why not just turn to astrology to determine your fate? After all, the stars haven't steered us wrong before.

So let your sign be your guide and take all the difficult decision-making out of your NYE this year. Ring in the new year in makeup meant for you.

Nothing suits a Capricorn more than a classic NYE look. Keep the eyes subtle, but push yourself out of your comfort zone with a bold, glossy red lip.

Carefully placed pops of aquatic navy against a wash of gold will make you feel right at home, Cancer. Just make sure to use waterproof liner in case you get emotional as the ball drops.

You're already the center of attention, Leo. So play up your favorite features, but let your stellar personality really take center stage. A garnet eye will bring out the feline in you, but a soft rose lip will keep you down to Earth.

If anyone can rock a bold eye and a bold lip, it's a Scorpio. Just douse yourself in glitter, apply your favorite red lipstick, and call it a day. If you're really extra, give false bottom lashes a try. You'll be addicted, I promise.
