New Year's Eve Makeup

Although the festive season is nearly over, I'm not ready to give up my red lipsticks and glitter just yet, so New Years Eve is the perfect excuse to play around with my make-up. This year I am opting for a brown lip, smokey eye and glittery nails to get me through the night, so I have rounded up a few of my go-to party products.

F A C E | If there's one thing I need to do on New Years Eve it's cover up my dark circles and lacklustre skin from the lack of sleep and too many sausage rolls I've had over the Christmas period. The Clarins Instant Concealer diminishes the appearance of redness, blemishes and puffy eyes. For foundation I follow with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation as the lightweight formula and dewy finish does wonders for my skin, concealing any imperfections and uneven skin tone. 

Adding glow and faking myself some cheekbones is a top priority when it comes to party makeup. The Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder is a miracle worker if you're looking to create cheekbones in a quick swipe of a brush, whilst the Nars Copacabana Illuminator leaves a subtle sheen and helps to accentuate the contour. Next up is blusher and one that continues to brighten my complexion is the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher - Ecstasy, a finely milled powder that effortlessly applies a soft hue to my cheeks. 

E Y E S | On the eyes, the Nars Dead Of Summer Eyeshadow Palette creates the perfect smokey, long lasting eye look that is needed on NYE. This quad is made up of four buildable hues that can be worn both dry and wet on the lid, making for a strong, vivid colour pay off. To finish I lightly line the lids using my L'Oreal Superliner and apply several lashing of my L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara.

L I P S | When you're going on a long night out, a long lasting lip colour is a must have. Although I would usually opt for something like Nars Cruella, this year I have chosen to sport a brown lip in the form of MAC's Spirit. This muted brown hue is the perfect neutral addition to a make up look as it subtly enhances and plumps the lips. 

N A I L S | This year I am opting for a monochrome outfit, so any gold accents are appreciated. Essie's Tassel Shaker and Fifth Avenue are two nail varnish shades that work in sync together to create a gorgeous festive copper look.

What makeup are you going to wear on NYE?
