My NYE Makeup Look
Hi everyone! Welcome to my LAST post of 2015!!! This post is going to show you one of my NYE Makeup Looks! I hope you enjoy!!
Before I apply my makeup, I like to make sure my face is clean and moisturized! I use Origins Skin Serum right after I wash my face. I then apply my Neutrogena Moisturizer for Extra Dry Skin. My skin is SUPER dry in the winter so I make sure to apply my Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream. After all my moisturizers are on, I’m ready to apply my makeup!
I don’t typically start with a face primer (I know I should!) so I didn’t use one for this look either. I started out with my Makeup Forever HD Foundation. This stuff is AMAZING and I swear by it. I apply it with my damp Beauty Blender, of course.
For a look like this, I really wanted to conceal and brighten my under eyes. I used two different concealers for this one! After I applied my foundation, I then applied my Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter in the color “Light Boost.” I blended that in with my damp beauty blender as well. Then, once that concealer was blended, I applied my Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in the color “NC20.” I sprayed my already damp beauty blender with Mac Fix+. Hint: spraying your brush or beauty blender with Fix+ will help with dry skin! As for any problem areas (I have a few right now) I use my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and I blend that in with my beauty blender as well.
I set my under eyes with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It helps brighten my under eyes and keeps my concealer there all day! As for my whole face, I used my usual Benefit Hello Flawless powder.
Now for the fun part!! Its New Years Eve, so I knew I wanted to do something fun with my eyes. I think this sparkly look is fun and believe it or not, it’s easy to recreate! I started by applying my Smashbox Lid Primer. Then I used two colors from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. The first color I used was “Naked.” I used this color as a base color for the look. Next, I used the color “Buck” for a crease color. I wanted to create some definition for my eyes, and this color worked perfectly for that. Next comes the FUN part! I picked up this Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art this morning from the drugstore. This stuff is SO easy to apply – you just swipe it all over your lid and let it dry! After I applied the glitter, I applied my Stila Liquid Eyeliner on my lid. After that, I tight lined both my upper water line AND my lower water line. I feel that by doing this, it really makes my eyes look bigger and more awake! I used my all time FAVORITE eyeliner by Nars for this part. I then went on to use my Urban Decay Perversion mascara and my Benefit Roller Lash mascara (best combo EVER). I put mascara on both my upper lashes and my lower lashes. After mascara, the eye look is complete!
OK for my face, I used my usual favorite products. You can find all of those right here!
For lips I used Milani’s Color Statement Lip Liner in the color “Nude.” I lined my lips and filled them in with this color. On top of that, I used Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Lip Color in the color “Lilac Pink.”
Heres the final look!! PS – find me on Instagram to see more of what I’m doing this NYE!
OK – that’s my complete NYE Makeup Look! I hope you enjoyed and that you all have an amazing New Years Eve!
