New Years Eve Make Up..

Monday, January 02, 2012

Hey Lovelies!

So first and foremost Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2012 already? I can't but it's exciting isn't it! I hope you all had a brilliant new year's and weren't too delicate yesterday. I feel like I was the only person who didn't really drink on NYE but we'll blame my two day illness for that one! So with any big night, the most exciting part for me is the make up. Even though we were just off for a meal, I wanted my make up to be a little bit more than normal, I mean if you can't up the drama with your make up on new years eve then when can you?

I decided to go with a bronzed base, smokey eye and big lashes! I used a mixture of new and old products and lashes were courtesy of Eylure Double Lashes which sadly after being used four times are now needing to be put in the bin as they seem to resemble dead spiders. Lovely.




Products Used:
Body Shop Mattifying Day Cream
Eyedew eye drops
Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation
Estee Lauder doublewear foundation
Estee Lauder doublewear maximum cover foundation as concealer
YSL Touche Eclat
L'oreal True Match powder
Bobbi Brown Matte bronzer
MAC Melba blush 

Eyes:
Bobbi Brown eye palette- ivory (all over lid & brow bone) champagne quartz (lid only) and mahogany (crease) 
Urban Decay Naked Palette- Half baked (lid) and Darkhorse (Outer crease and corner)
Eylure double lashes 202
Maybelline gel eyeliner 
Models own smokey eye kit- for eyebrows

Lips:
MAC Myth lipstick
Body Shop Roll on lip balm- used as gloss 

To Fix:
Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist to keep make up in place all night 



So there we have it, my NYE face! Did you do anything special with your make up for NYE? I'm kind of glad Christmas and NYE is all over now as I'm ready to have a rest as the past two weeks have just been non-stop! I hope you all have a lovely day and I've finally got round to making some YouTube videos today so look out for them which will all be uploaded very soon :) Have a lovely evening!
