Well firstly let me start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR babes! Hope you had a kick ass day and night Ive seen a whole lot of glittery looks around for NYE but as I was going out for New Years Day, I wanted something a little different so read on below for a step by step tutorial
~ STEP 1 ~
Prime your face and eyes. As I want my makeup to stay on all day and into the evening I need to make sure I’ve primed both my eyes and face so as to hold the makeup in place. For my face I used my Embryolisse 24Hr Miracle Cream and for my eyes I used my new my new Too Faced Shadow Insurance which I bought from the new Mecca Maxima shop at Warringah Mall).
~ STEP 2 ~
Taking Creme Brulee by Makeup Geek – I use my E45 brush by Sigma and blend it into and just above my crease.
~ STEP 3 ~
Using the same blending brush from before I take CocoaBear by Makeup Geek – blending over the top of where I placed Creme Brulee.
~ STEP 4 ~
Taking a large fluffy brush I use a mixture of Vanilla Bean and Beaches and Cream and blend that up onto my brow bone.
~ STEP 5 ~
From my “A Few of My Favourite Things Palette” by Too Faced I take the colours Honey Honey and Crisp Apple Strudel and place that on my lid with my MAC 217 brush – blending it out evenly over the whole lid. I bought this palette online from Tarazz – however any light golden shade will do.
~ STEP 6 ~
I wanted to smoke out the look more so I took my Sigma E36 brush and used Mocha by Makeup Geek and placed it directly into my crease and my outer V.
~ STEP 7 ~
I then wanted to add some sparkle so going back to my A Few Favorite Things palette I took Moon on Their Wings and just patted that on top using my MAC 217 Brush. Again you dont have to use this palette – you can either skip this step or choose a lighter golden sparkly shade or pigment.
~ STEP 8~
I chose to go over again with Mocha and darken up my crease and outer V so as the golden shades would stand out more.
~ STEP 9 ~
I then applied my favorite liquid liner – Schwing by theBalm and my mascara – I used Mega Plush and Colossol Volume – both by Maybelline.
~ STEP 10 ~
Then taking my No. 1 lashes by Lashes in a Box – I applied them for extra flair. I then go on and apply my foundation and concealer.
~ STEP 11 ~
~ STEP 12 ~
Taking Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Violet Plum I ran it under my bottom lash line.
~ STEP 13 ~
Using Drama Queen by Makeup Geek I use my MAC 217 brush and press it along where we placed Violet Plum. Cleaning up any fall out with some concealer.
Finishing off by applying a few coats of Goddess Mascara by Eye of Horus along my lower lash line and of course brush my brows into place.
Well I hope you liked this look – let me know what you think
Till next time babes xx
