NYE Make Up Look


Hello everyone!

Hope this year has been amazing for you and your upcoming year is even better, it's so hard to believe 2015 is almost over! 

I've done this look for one of my blog posts and thought this would be a perfect look for New Year's Eve, it's very cool toned and a really easy smoky eye.

I have combination skin so I always use primer in my T-zone when I want my make up to last all day and the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector is perfect for that, half way through the day and my face still stays oil free and make up stays in place. Regardless of my combination skin I still love having the strobed and dewy look, so always on the hunt for a good dewy foundation and I love the Loreal Lumi foundation (my shade is n1-2) to achieve that. I have major dark circles so I always use my MAC Studio Conceal and Correct in mid peach under my eyes before applying the UD Naked serum concealer (light neutral) on top. I buff in all of the skin products using my beauty blender, I have stopped using brushes for my skin, I love the seamless finish I get with the beauty blender. To keep my skin looking dewy I just apply powder on my under eyes and my t-zone to lock in the foundation and concealer. 
I barely ever contour my face but go heavy with the blush and highlight, for blush I love Tarte, it stays on all day and the color is a very pretty neutral pink that goes with every look. On to highlight, I love layering a powder highlight on top of a cream highlight so I love doing that on days when I really want my highlight to pop. I use the liquid version of Becca Opal on the high points of my face and then apply the powder version. I love the strobed look this highlight gives to my make up look.

I already have thick eyebrows but to fill in some of the sparse areas I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in dark brown. On to the eyes, for all the eye shadows I used the Naked Smoky Palette, I love this palette and the packaging is sleek and pretty. In order for the eye make up to stay on all night especially such a dramatic look I use my too faced shadow insurance, apply it all over the lid and then took the 'combust' shadow applied it over the primer to lock it in. I then go in with the shade 'whiskey' and 'password' in my crease and used 'combust' as a transition shade to help them blend more seamlessly. Then to make the shadow pop more I applied the L'oreal silkissime black eyeliner all over my lid, it's a very creamy eye pencil so it's perfect as a base and then applied the shade 'Armor' all over the lid. I then went in with the shade smolder in my outer V to create more dimension to the eye look. I used the shade password on my lower lash line and then smolder in the outer edge to give a more smoky effect. I used Becca Opal to highlight my brow bone and my inner corner. I also use the L'oreal silkissime liner to tight-line my upper lash line and apply the Kiko nude liner in my water line, both these steps make your eyes look bigger and defined. I definitely wanted to go all out with this look and wanted to do lots of mascara and a winged liner. I used my favorite Kat Von D Trooper liquid liner to create the wing, I love this liner it makes it so easy to create a wing and stays on all day long. I got the chance to try the new Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Masacara and I love it! If you like very voluminous lashes, then this is definitely a winner. Although, it can get clumpy if you use too much so use it sparingly. Personally I love that full lash effect so I didn't mind and applied it to my lashes after curling them.

For the lips I have two options, I originally wore a neutral lip gloss from Julep in the shade 'Charming' but then since the look is so cool toned I thought 'Lolita' from Kat Von D would look perfect with it, I have pictures with both lip options on below. To finish everything I always dose my face in Urban Decay All Nighter spray.

Hope you guys liked this make up look and get some inspiration for NYE or any event coming up and have a great and safe New Year's Eve and Happy New Year! Thank you for always checking out my posts and all the sweet comments on Instagram.
