My New Years Eve Makeup

I am still trying to get my head around the fact that it’s new years eve tomorrow. I think 2016 has been a bit of a roller coaster for all involved and there have been their definite ups and downs. I cannot wait to see what 2017 will bring to me and my family, of course wishing it is good. Before it was too late I wanted to share with you the makeup that I will be wearing tomorrow night! It involves this super sparkly smokey eye and an ombre lip. I wanted to do something a little more out there but still really wearable and I am in love with this look. If you want to find out how I created this look then keep reading…

I started by priming my eyes using my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Creme De Nude. I then set this with my regular face powder before going in with shadows. This just helped everything to blend together smoother. I knew that I wanted to use a cooler toned lid colour so to balance that out I decided to go for some warmer shades in the crease.

For this look I used my Makeup Geek Eye Shadows and started with Peach Smoothie. This shade is great as a transition but it is very warm against my skin, I buffed this all over my crease and just made sure that it was blended out really well. I then took the shade Frappe and applied this into the crease focusing on the outer corner. Once I had blended that I then went in with a mix of Cocoa Bear and Concrete Jungle. The reason I mixed both a super warm rich brown and a slate grey was because I don’t own any neutral browns in my collection, so this way just the easiest way to tone down the warmth of Cocoa Bear but keep the depth. I applied these shades on the outer third of my eye making sure to blend it out really well. I then took the time to apply all of the shades onto my lower lash line, making sure to blend each shade out before going in with the next one. I then took the shade White Lies and applied this to my inner corners quite heavily, and lighter on the brow bone.

For my lid I used ColourPop Koosh Eye Shadow. This shade is an ultra metallic and comes across super sparkly! I have been loving this shade and I love how it reflect both taupe tones and silver tones. It is such a unique shade!

I will probably wear lashes tomorrow night but for the photos as you can see I just have mascara on and I love it even with just mascara. I used my trusty Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and put a couple of layers on to give a more dramatic effect.

Lips

For my lips I wanted to try something  a little bit different. I started by lining my lips with the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Obsession. This shade is gorgeous and is the perfect vampy deep plum shade. I lined my lips and filled in the outer corners ready for my next lip colour.

I then applied my ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Bianca. This shade is a gorgeous nude with more pinky undertones. I was going to use Trap but it was more purple toned and I wanted to keep this lip more on the pink/nude side . I then blotted my lips together to blend the two colours together and patted over the edges with my lips to make sure that everything was smooth.
