New Years Eve Makeup

A little New Years Eve inspiration for you in case you were stuck for ideas. This is pretty much the same makeup I wore for my birthday and I got lots of nice comments on it on my vlog. So here you go… 

I started by using my NARS Sheer Glow for a nice coverage and to avoid a ghost face in the Facebook photos the next day. A bit of powder to keep my concealer in place and my usual bronzer and blusher routine, it’s subtle but important to add definition. I kept the lips simple and nude using MAC’s Patisserie with Boy Bait cremesheen lipgloss on top. I think when the eyes are this dramatic it’s nice to keep the lips simple. 

The eyes are the main focus of this look. I started with a cream bronze base using my finger to apply Maybelline’s On and On Bronze. On top of that I build a deep and dark smokey eye using MAC’s Handwritten which is a dark, matte brown. I also took this brown under the eye to really make it look smokey. New Years Eve without sparkle is like a Christmas tree without lights, so on top of the shadow I pressed on Concrete from Bobbi Brown. This is the most gorgeous taupe pressed glitter shadow and I love the effect it gives. To finish the eyes I made my lashes look a little fuller by adding some liquid liner to the top, some kohl liner to the inside and lots of layers of my favourite mascara. 

So there you go, a smokey, glittery, pretty New Years makeup look. Fancy giving it a go? 

I hope you all have a wonderful new years eve! Remember, bread at the beginning of the night, water at the end 😉 

Happy new year!!
