For my New Years Eve I didn’t do anything extravagant (which was perfectly fine by me) so this kind of makeup look suited the plan. With a set of eyelashes and some good contouring it could be made much more intense, but on this occasion less was just what I needed.
I opted for a natural looking finish, I didn’t want anything too heavy so I used the Rimmel Match Perfection. This is my go to day time foundation, and this is the point where I am stopping myself from rambling on about just how good it is, it is just perfect. To keep this is place all night I used Macs prep and prime, I have been using this miniature sample size as my full size one is at my uni house, there is something about miniature sized products I cannot resist. I also used some concealer just to brighten up my eyes and cover the blemishes. A light dusting of the Body Shop bronzer stopped me looking so ill, and that was my base complete.
My last post seen me mention my new love – Urban Decay Naked – and I love this look I created with it, something a little smokey but it’s no where near as dramatic as it could be. I started off by applying Macs Painterly paintpot all over my lids, this is a lovely base for eyeshadows but I use it on it’s own on a day to day basis, goodbye to those annoying veins on your eyelids, and hello to an even base! The shades I used from the palette were naked and darkhorse, I really love the effect from these two shadows and it is nice to go with something other than the brown smokey eye I usually opt for.
Now, I am a follower, I am into the “Kylie Lip” that everyone is raving about. I don’t go quite as brown toned as her but a nude lip is what I have been loving. I recently bought Brave from Mac and it kind of falls under the same category as the Kylie lip colours. Essentially a your lips but better colour which for me is the perfect alternative to creating the lip look that screams “I’ve been watching the Kylie makeuo tutorials on YouTube”.
I know that any evenings I might be going out this makeup look or something similar will be going with me, looking back at the photo’s I’m thinking a little contouring and I will be good to go…
