New Year's Eve Makeup

I can't believe how fast this year flew by! first up on the agenda New Year's Eve makeup! This year I wanted to create something bold and shimmery yet still quite glam and pretty. I think this look is suitable for many parties and special events but I will be wearing it on New Year's Eve this year.

For this look I used:
EYES:
*Urban Decay Primer Potion
*Makeup Forever Aqua Brow gel in dark brown (for eyebrows)
*Outer V: Blackout from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
*Crease: dark silver from the Coastal Scents 120 palette (tray 1) 
*Above crease: blending color: Tease from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
*Lid color: bellapierre loose eye shadow in the color Tin Man (frm my Beauty box 5)
*Eyeliner (top lid) NYC liquid liner in black
*Eyeliner (bottom lash line) blinc eyeliner in black
*Brow bone highlight: Foxy from the Naked 2 palette
Lips:
*552A Just Garnet by Wet n Wild

Face:
*Sweet black tea & ginger mattefying moisturizer by Jura Skin Care
*e.l.f. face primer
*MAC Studio Fix liquid foundation (using the Sigma F80 brush)
*MAC Pro Long Wear concealer (using the e.l.f. flawless concealer brush)
*Ben Nye banana powder (to set under my eyes)
*Makeup Forever high definition powder
*Blush: NYX in the color Pinched
*e.l.f. bronzer (from the blush and bronzer duo)

For nail polish I like essie's Ignite the Night:

  13. I love how you went with blue instead of the typical gold or silver! It looks great on you. I am probably just going to go with something regular for NYE :p

    1. It is actually sliver not blue lol, maybe it looks blue because I blended the silver with darker silvers and black so it appears a bit blue but it is actually silver :)
