I haven’t done a tutorial on youtube in what feels like forever! I wanted to get one done for Christmas but as I missed that I thought I’d better get on with it if I was gonna make it before NYE!
When I think of New Year I think of family, we always have a party with friends and neighbours and usually run with some kind of theme so I don’t get to do the NYE party dress and sparkly makeup deal (this years theme is “bad taste” ugh) but if I was to go out on the town this New Year I would definitely hit the sparkly trend HARD!
I went for something that’s still pretty subtle and wearable from a distance but upclose it’s an explosion of glitter on your eyelids!
I used my new MSF in Comfort and elf HD finishing powder ( I LOVE) to give me a glowy, bronzed base.
I am really liking the Urban Decay Stardust shadows, they are packed with sparkly glitter and as it’s so fine the fall out isn’t as terrible because it’s just a dusting of shimmer on your cheeks as opposed to full on chunks of glittery mess!I used 2true eyeliner in silver and UD 24/7 liner in Oil Slick. On my lips was a MAC gloss in Flurry of fun from the “to the beach” collection.
As my main eyeshadow base I used this TopShop palette which I must say I’m not impressed with!
It didn’t blend well and the colours had little impact. They weren’t heavily pigmented.. I guess I’ve just spoiled myself with the ultra blendable UD shadows I wear everyday but I don’t know if I’ll be using this again… Good job oit was on sale! You could use any light/silver and grey/black colours to achieve the same look – with the quality of these I would say you’d probably get a better effect!
So that’s my New Years Eve look!
