How are you doing? I know, I know, I bring you yet another makeup post, following Monday’s Christmas Makeup one. What can I say, this season’s so festive and filled with opportunities to wear more elaborate looks that one just can’t run away from them.
So, today I’m sharing with you my New Year’s Eve makeup look, as you might have already figured out by the title of this post. I’m not one to go out, nor have a big celebration on New Year’s, but I do love an opportunity to play with makeup and create a more elaborate look, so I couldn’t turn a blind eye to that.
For my base, I used the same products I’ve been wearing all month (here), but for the eyes I went for it!
I brought out my Naked 3 palette that I’ve been neglecting ever since I got my hands on the Tartelette in Bloom one, but I’m so glad I reunited with this one, it’s simply stunning and has some of the prettiest shades I own.
I started by applying Nooner (1) on the crease, slightly going upwards on the outer corner. Then I drew a thick, sloppy line with the Khôl & Contour eye pencil by Bourjois in ‘Ultra Black, which I smudged with a pencil brush that I had dipped in Darkside (2). I also applied some of that eye pencil on the outer corner of my lower lash line, which I also smudged using the same brush, with the same eyeshadow.
After that, with my finger, I applied Blackheart (3) all over the lid, slightly pressing as I went since it’s a shade that had little specs of purple sparkle / glitter and I wanted them to show up. To finish the look, I applied Strange (the lightest shade in the palette) to the inner corners, I tightlined with the black pencil and applied a creamy nude one to my waterline (Sephora’s long lasting khol pencil in ’07 infinite beige’). And added a very generous coat of mascara!
Since I wanted the focus to be on the eyes but still wanted a festive lip, I decided to combine my favourite lipstick (NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Bahama’) with Urban Decay’s Naked lipgloss in ‘Liar’.
And here’s the final look!
What do you guys think? Would you recreate it?
