­New Years Party Makeup

Monday, December 29, 2014

Hello gorgeous!

As I said on my New Years Party Outfits post (click here if you haven't read it yet!), I made a New Years Party Makeup look!
I used a mix of high end and drugstore products, but you don't have to buy or use all (or any!) of the products I mention! Use whatever you've got!
Face: I kept the face VERY simple. For foundation, I chose the Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation - just apply a thin layer all over your face and apply a bit more on areas where you need extra coverage (like under the eyes, on random spots or redness). Set everything with a face powder, like the Maybelline Matte Maker Mattifying Powder
For definition and glow, bronze, highlight and blush your skin with the Sleek Makeup Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette in light! 

Eyes: Start by framing your eyes with amazing, polished brows. I chose the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder to define the brows, and the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara to keep the brow hairs in place! 
Moving on to the eyes, I believe a simple nude eye is the key to any party look - specially if you want to look great on photos and in person! The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette  is the perfect little palette to create this kind of look, since it has all the basic shades you need to create any soft or smokey eye look. 
Start by applying W.O.S all over your lid. Then, apply Naked 2 on your crease to define your eyes - don't forget to BLEND! 
To give some extra depth to the crease, take a small pencil brush and apply faint to the crease line (where your lid goes inwards, right under the browbone!), softly blending it with Naked 2, for a seamless look! Remember - we are not going for a cut-crease look - we are just giving more definition to your eyes, by shading and highlighting the natural shades and highlights that are already there! 
Then, take an angled brush and carefully dab Crave super close to your lashline. You can buff it out for a softer look, or leave it as is for a fuller lash effect. 
Finally, highlight your inner corner with Venus. If you need something under your brow to lift it up, take your face powder or face highlight and gently blending it on your brow bone, for a natural lifted look :)
Apply one of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils I chose (from L to R - Delinquent, Gold Mine, Cuff, Uzi, Corrupt and Perversion) on your waterline and smudge it into your lower lash line - OR you can apply Perversion on your waterline and , with a small angled brush, smudge any of the other colors on your lower lashline! 
Then all you have to do is apply mascara. Once again I chose Clinique High Impact Mascara, since it's my fave mascara ever!

Lips: As usual, I give you plenty of options when it comes to your lips, and today's post is surely no exception! 
You can opt for a pretty nude, a light pink, a bright pink, a bright red, a dark red or even violet and plum shades! 
From left to right, these are the lipsticks I chose:
Charlotte Tilbury B*tch Perfect Lipstick - a BEAUTIFUL peachy nude. Super creamy and luxurious. That packaging tho - SWOON!
NYX Butter Lipstick in Big Cherry - a gorgeous cheery red lipstick, very Marilyn Monroe, super buttery (duh!)!
NYX Matte Lipstick in Aria - violet lipstick, super long lasting! It reminds me of Rebel by Mac, but at a much nicer price point :p
NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops - this is the creamy version of the "Kylie Jenner lip color" - it's a perfect nude, which means it isn't super pale and dead looking -one of my all time favorites!
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Deep Red - this is a gorgeous creamy burgundy red. If you want a less vibrant and more sophisticated red, this is the perfect lip pencil.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Licorice  - a very beautiful deep burgundy. I would say this is the creamy version of their Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen. I LOVE this kind of colors :p
NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey - this is a mid-tone blue pink, that will suit almost everyone (it can look a bit ashy if you have a very deep skin color). It's bright enough to make a statement, but not too much to be a Barbie pink (their Macaroon Lippie in Rose is perfect for that, tho!).

And that's it! Let me know what you think of this makeup look on the comments! Also, tell me what lipstick and eye liner you'd wear from my picks! 

Have a wonderful day! Happy New Year!
