Lets be honest, when getting ready for a night like New Years Eve you end up with one major decision, a bright lip or nude? I play a bright lip strategically, as generally it has more of an upkeep than nude so I like to keep this to events when you’re not eating in lengthly sittings, smaller events that are only a couple of hours, or in a situation where you can pop back to the bathroom for regular upkeep. This New Years Eve that wont be the case so i’m going for a makeup look with longevity and that after hours of wear will still look fresh. And an even bigger bonus, that new years kiss will go down a lot more seamlessly with a nude lip!
Going for a bronzed smokey eye works for my eye colour and using a brown kohl eye pencil keeps it relaxed and soft. I used Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy 5 colour eyeshadow palette in Rebel Metal, Lancome’Le Crayon Kohl’ Eyeliner in Black Coffee and Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring length + volume mascara in black.
Contoured with Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar bronze and glow, and used a base from my previous beauty post on How To Get That Glow using a mix of Clarins Beauty Flash balm, Dior Nudetan BB creme and Laura Mercier illuminating primer. I use Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit in honey , and gave the inner corners an extra lift with Mecca Cosmetica’s Beauty Sleep Eye Brightener.
