I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I certainly did, just the exchanging and opening gifts part because that’s always fun. 😉 I have a quick post today and it’s a makeup look for New Years Eve. I decided to go for a more bold and smokey eye look because when I think of NYE, I think of glitter and sparkles and bold, bright colors and that was what I chose for this look.
For this eye look, I went back to my trusted Naked Palette just because it has most of the colors I needed. The star of the show is the shade “Sidecar”. It is a nice neutral taupe color with chunky glitters in it and I thought it would be perfect for this makeup look. As for the rest of the eyes, I used the shade “Naked” as my transitional shade, “Darkhorse” and “Creep” for the outer corners while creating a slight “V” shape, and “Buck” to blend the colors together. I also added Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Eyeshadow in the shade “Bandit” for an extra warmth on the eyes and applied it right above “Buck”. I used “Virgin” to highlight my inner corners and also my brow bone.
For the rest of my face:
MUFE HD Foundation (128) mixed with Loreal True Match Lumi in (w5)
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard), MAC Prep + Prime (Light Boost)
MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Powder to set concealer.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Medium Plus)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Give Me Sun) for Bronzing
NARS (Laguna) for contouring
Coty Airspun Translucent powder for baking under contour.
Kat Von D Everlasting Blush (Wish)
Becca x Jaclyn Hill (Champagne Pop) for higlight.
To finish of the eyes, I used Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for my lashes and I used ABH Brow Wiz in Chocolate for my brows. Since this is a more dramatic makeup look, I decided to pair it with a nude lipstick and top it off with a nude gloss.
So here’s my final look. If you do try to recreate it, remember that you could always use similar colors that you have to recreate this look. And, this look could go with any lip color you desire.
Thanks for reading and have a fun and safe New Year!XOXO ❤
