I know Christmas is what we’re probably looking forward to the most, but New Years Eve is a big occasion too right? So. I have here a New Years Eve Makeup Look I would happily rock on the faithful night. I went for a subtle glittery eye with a matte pink lip. I think this combo would work for any night out not just New Years but it’s nice to have an excuse 🙂
Base, brows and eyeshadow primer dunzo!
Then onto the good stuff, I’m using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette.
Isn’t she a beauty? I have a full review of it here if you want to see it up closer.
I grabbed the shade Stark to begin and added a wash of it to my crease just to makeup everything blend better on my lids.
To deepen the crease colour more I took some Anaheim and blended that over top.
To conceal any discolouration on the brow bone and lighten it, I applied some Skimp. It has a little bit of sheen to it but nothing too crazy.
Punk is one of my favourite colours in the palette.
I used a tapered brush to apply it on the outer v of my eyes, and blended it across my crease slightly.
To just add a base for the pigment, I patted some Baby over the rest of my lid.
And then some more blending happened 🙂
I don’t think this step was really necessary, because the pigment is more of a shadow than a glitter, but I did it so I’ll add it in.
I applied a really small amount of Duraline onto my eyelids (I have a full blogpost on Duraline here).
I pulled out Makeup Geek’s pigment in New Years Eve for a bit of festive sparkle and because it’s aptly named for a New Years Eve Makeup look 🙂
I applied this with a flat brush over where I placed the Duraline.
I just deepened up Punk in the outer corner then.
I used the colour Blackout, from the Gwen Stefani Palette to line my lash line because lashes have to happen…it’s New Years Eve Makeup. 🙂
I chose Ardell Demi 120 false lashes, I like that they flare out on the outer corners.
To hide the false lash band a bit more, I applied a line of liquid liner across them.
I concealed and then went onto the lower lash line. I added some of the Punk shade on the outer end of my eyes, the same as the top lid.
And then some Baby on the inner part.
Mascara time then.
I wanted to darken things up a little more so I tight lined with some black liner.
For some inner corner brightness, I used the shade Pop.
I wanted to go with a somewhat strong pink lip. I lined my lips first with Nyx Lip Pencil in Pinky.
I chose one of my favourite lip products the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the colour Ole Flamingo.
I did some loose curls in my hair for the occasion and then we’re done 🙂
Let me know what you think!
Have the best Christmas and of course New Year ever, and thank you so much for reading, I really really appreciate it.
