Party Makeup Look For New Year’s Eve Day

Party Makeup Look For New Year’s Eve Day

Say goodbye to 2017 in style with this party makeup look for New Year’s Eve day

Turn Day to Night

 

What I have found handy when doing my New Year’s Eve day makeup is to create something that I can then easily vamp up for the evening. That way it saves you having to take off your daytime makeup to then reapply everything and more for the evening.

 

Not to mention, applying makeup, taking it off, applying it again and taking it off again all in one day and night will play havoc on your skin and I’m sure you don’t want to start 2018 with unwanted blemishes.

 

New Years Eve Day

Prep & Prime

If you want to prep your skin with something amazing, try the Stila Illuminating 10-in-1 Beauty Balm. It does so much more than a regular primer. Whilst prepping the skin for makeup application, you are likely to see that it reduces wrinkle depth (by up to 84%), helps to banish blemishes and reduces pores, redness and excess oil. This is the perfect product to kick start New Years Eve day makeup as it will keep your makeup in place all day and night.

 

Perfecting Complexion

When it comes to foundation, who said expensive is best? I have recently discovered an incredible, inexpensive foundation. It’s the EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear Liquid Foundation. I’m not shy when experimenting with foundations, I’m constantly on the look out for great foundations for myself and for my makeup kit.

This oil and fragrance free formula, glides over the skin for a solid medium coverage with a luminous finish. Their guide to choosing the right shade for your skin tone is ideal and at just $11 for a 30ml bottle, it’s such a bargain.

 

Shade & Light

Save some space in your purse, get chiseled, highlighted and all with the compact Pur Cameo Dual Ended Contour Stick. The 2-in-1 contour and highlight formula works to sculpt and define the natural contours of the face. Use the darker shade to add depth to the hollows of the cheek-bones, around the forehead and the jaw. Use the lighter shade to highlight under the eyes, over the cheekbones and just under the brow bone.

 

Let It Glow

Enhance the high points on New Years Eve day and get strobe-like radiance with Illamasqua Beyond powder. This baked highlighter powder has an iridescent finish and is available in 4 mesmerizing shades. When you see them you’ll understand why I’m obsessed with all of them. The four shades work to compliment different skin tones.

The Beyond Powder Guide

When it comes to applying the powder, I use the beyond powders on any of the high points I want to accentuate. If you go too heavy on the highlight it can potentially ruin the look of your makeup, so the brush you use to apply it can make it or break it. The best brush to use with these highlighters is the Sigma F42 Strobing Fan Brush.

 

Subtle Or Smokey

Let the Pixi Get The Look Palette – It’s Eye Time, effortlessly take you from day to night. Perfect to transform your New Years Eve Day Makeup to your New Years Eve evening makeup. The palette is made up of 12 gorgeous blendable shades, from soft hues to deep browns.

Why not try a subtle nude eye during the day and a super smoky eye for the evening. You could always add some trusty wispy eyelashes to flutter your way into the New Year and you can’t go wrong with classic Ardell Wispies.

 

 

Pucker Up

Unusually, on this occasion, for my own new years eve day makeup I would rather go bold on my lips during the day and team it with a soft nude eye. Then in the evening, switch it up and go really smokey on my eyes in the evening and pair it with a light nude lip. As I’ve said before now, it is the party season so anything goes. If you would prefer a chic smokey eye and a daring red lip- got for it!

 

Knock Em Red

My red picks are, NYX Professional Slide On Lip Pencil in ‘Knock Em Red’ and the INC.redible Pushing Everyday Semi-matte Lip Click in the shade, ‘Out Of Office’.

The NYX lipliners are such good buy, they blend effortlessly so forget pressing over your lips with a heavy hand because these velvet-like lip pencils are so smooth and highly pigmented. Pair this up with the ‘Out Of Office’ red lip color by INC.redible and you’re sure to make a statement!

 

Buff Beauty

My nude preference is the Contour Cosmetics Lip Contour Kit, ‘Stud’, this lip duo is literally everything you need to get gorgeous defined lips. The set combines a creamy lip pencil and a matte liquid lipstick. This color is the perfect nude, the finish is like smooth velvet and even better it lasts all day!

 

 

 

There you have my makeup guide to take you from New Years Eve Day to New Years Eve Night. When it comes to touching your makeup up, I always find I need a little concealer under my eyes to make them look fresh, a little retouch of foundation, a revamp of my eyes and a lip change.To finish, I set my makeup with the Colorescience Clarifying Setting Mist to lock in the makeup. It keeps it looking fresh and keeps the oil/shine at bay and I should also mention that it smells awesome.

 

 

I really hope you enjoy all of the festivities and have a wonderful time. Remember if you have any questions, simply fire them over on twitter.
