main
While you may have already found the most stunning long-sleeve frock for New Year’s Eve, the last thing you want is the rest of your look to fall anything short of glamorous. And that’s exactly why we’ve rounded up the best beauty hot-spots around town. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your peepers or want a flat-out gorgeous mug, we’ve found four must-hit locales to get your best look of 2012. Don’t mind if we take partial credit when you land that midnight kiss.

Beauty Company
Even though it's winter, you might not want your complexion to match the snow on the ground. So, for a warm, natural-looking glow, we suggest hopping inside The Beauty Company’s tanning booth that lets you customize everything from scent and shade to shimmer level and antioxidants for $50 dinero.
Beauty Company, 2325 Polk Street (between Green and Union streets); 415-567-8740.
Morphic
For an envy-inducing ’do, there’s no better alternative than FiDi’s Morphic salon, which specializes in ombré coloring, smoothing treatments, and braids. Morphic even has a dedicated bar section for fancy twists and twirls, customizing your locks any way you please — from high-drama crowns to fishtails.
Morphic, 660 Market Street (at Kearny Street); 415-789-6682.
M.A.C.
Sure, there are plenty of cosmetic destinations to get dolled up around the city, but we think M.A.C.’s dramatic looks are most appropriate for the last day of the year. Plus, the intense color pigments serve to last the entire night and ensure that all eyes fall on you.
M.A.C., 2011 Fillmore Street (between California and Pine streets); 415-885-2966.
Lashfully
If there’s ever a time to lash out, it’s on New Year’s Eve — and this Marina faux-eyelash destination offers both top and bottom sets. Lashfully makes your peepers nice and lush in the bat of an eye, and since the set is semi-permanent, the lengthy look will last you well into 2013.
Lashfully, 1954 Union Street (between Buchanan and Laguna streets); 415-673-3240.
