The NYE make up look

3:37 PM



I wasn't planning to do this blogpost, but hey, New Year's Eve make up is only one time in a year ! 



Prep - Skin Care

In the midst of studying for my upcoming -dreadful- exams , I got sick and I've been lacking a bit in my skincare layering (article to come) franzy. My skin isn't looking as fab as it could be, so I used a Tea Tree Mask from Innisfree featured in my last Testerkorea order to ease up the blemishes and break outs. I used this mask 2 days prior to NYE, and I suggest you don't start to experiment with new products the night before if you don't want to end up with a possible break out.




Primer

 


I've used the deluxe sizes primers I've got from Smashbox : I'm applying the Photo Finish (Oil Free version) all over my T-zone to prevent any excess shine and the Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer, to moisturize my under eye area. 
Tip : To keep your t-zone matte all though the night, set your primers with a mattifying setting powder. I'm using Innisfree's No Sebum powder to set my t-zone.

 The Eye make up

 I don't wear eye shadows ever if I don't have a special occasion or party, so when I do wear some, I try to step it up a little here with a mix of drugstore and high end products :
I'm using Maybelline's Color Tattoo in 70 Mettalic Pomegranate all over my lid , a gorgeous plum cream eyeshadow with gold sparkles in it. Then, I also use a tiny amount of shade 05 - Pink Gold in the inner eye to highlight that area a bit.
With my trusty Naked 1 palette from Urban Decay, I pick Toasted and use it to define my crease and the outer part of the eyes with a dense blending brush. I then take the mattest and blackest black eyeshadow ever : Blackout from Urban Decay and use it to define my outer portion of the eye : Doing a V-shape in the outer part to intensify the eyelook and smoke it a bit. 
I go over my highlighted inner corners with my all-time favorite highlighting eye shadow : Urban Decay's Vanilla. 

Brows

I go over my brows with nearly finished NYX's eyebrow pencil in Dark Brown and because this bad boy is dying, I finished my brows with some dark eyeshadows from Smashbox's Full Exposure travel palette.

Eyeliner

I end the whole eye look, with a winged liner using the most waterproof liquid eyeliner ever : Kiko's Definition Waterproof Eyeliner. Lining my upper and lower waterline with UD's Perversion pencil eyeliner. Last but not least, I used my all-time favorite mascara : Benefit's They're Real . Now, is also the time to use falsies if you feel like it, I would've if I didn't rip the last pair I had. Time to order some ! 

The face make up


(Missing from the picture : MAC's Fix + powder)

Using NARS' Sheer Glow foundation in Barcelona with a F80 brush from Sigma, I buff it all over my face using circular motions. Mixing NARS' Radiant Creamy concealer in Ginger and MAC's Prep and Prime Highlighter in Bright Forecast, I apply it under my eye with a F86 brush to highlight this part of my face and end the application with a beauty blender for a more seamless application. I also extend MAC's highlighter on the bridge of my nose and center of my forehead to avoid having my undereyes as the only lighter part of the whole look. I set the whole thing with Ben Nye's Banana setting powder. I also set my T-Zone slightly (really just a tiny bit) dusting MAC's Fix + powder in NC42.


Taking The Balm's Bahama Mama bronzer, I contour my cheeks and nose for a more sculpted look.

My favorite step : Highlighter : I couldn't decide between my all-time favorite liquid highlighter or The Balm's Mary Lou-manizer, and I ended up going with the last thinking that I should get out of my confort zone. I used the highlighter on my cheekbones and browbones.


Lips

 

 


As I'm sporting a heavier eye look (although I can assure you it's not an overly dramatic smokey eye yet) , I went for a softer lip color mixing MAC's Taupe and a bit of MAC's All Fired Up.

Last but not least , to keep the whole thing fixed and loose the powdery finish : I used MAC's Fix + all over my face.




As you can see, I'm using mainly 3 brands because I tend to stick with my trusted product for big night outs like new year's eve. And this was the last post of 2014, let's meet again in 2015 !
