New Year's Eve Makeup

One of my favourite things about New Year's Eve is that I get to experiment with makeup and get dressed up. This year I'm opting for a long-wearing base, brown smokey eye and nude lip, which is more of a natural look than my previous few years. Here are my top picks: 

For my foundation, I was torn between using my new Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation, a luminous, lightweight base and my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, a trusty offering that offers longevity and coverage. I've gone for the latter as I want my complexion to look completely perfected and last throughout the whole night. I am going to set it using the Glossier Wowder Powder as this mattifies the face without making it look dry and it does wonders for how long my base will last too. 

I wanted to go for something classic when it came to my cheeks, so the Hourglass Euphoric Fusion Blusher* was top of my list, as the mauve-berry hybrid adds a subtle wash of colour. I want to contour a little bit, so I'm going to opt for either the Fenty Amber Match Stix or my new addition, the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand, as it looks like the perfect hue to add definition to my cheekbones. For highlighter, I think I'm going to go for the NYX Liquid Illuminator and then decide whether or not I would like to set it with a powder just before I leave. 

The Urban Decay Naked Palette* is my eyeshadow palette of choice for NYE, as the array of matte browns and shimmering golds make for a magical, yet dreamy smokey eye look. I love applying darkhorse along the lash line to define the eyes, whilst I run naked all over the lid and buck in the crease. When it comes to the evening I might throw in a touch of highlighter to the inner corner, in the form of Nars Rigel Eyeshadow, to help add a pop of shimmer to my peepers. I finish off with a pair of the Eylure Fleur Loves Lashes* to add volume and length. 

I find it really difficult to pick what lipstick I'll wear on the night. For longevity I would opt for the Huda Beauty Girlfriend Liquid Lipstick* as it's easy to apply, comfortable and is a gorgeous colour too. The Kat Von D Magik Lipstick and Nars Bahama Lip Pencil are two of my other top picks.
