Yes, it’s finally time to bring that glitter out hibernation because this post is about NYE makeup. I love NYE! It’s one of the only nights of the year that the dress code is ‘go crazy’. To make this look perfect for NYE I used the two fundamentals of dramatic makeup: black and glitter.
It can be hard to compete with all the beautifully executed makeup looks at every turn on NYE. Especially if, like me, you’re no makeup expert. So, I’m here to present to you this SUPER easy but still super dramatic makeup look that hopefully you’ll love to wear to your party of choice on NYE.
Naked palette ‘creep’
Naked palette ‘virgin’
KIKO High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow Shade 44
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘London’
BareMinerals Original Foundation (my shade is fairly light)
SLEEK Makeup Brow Kit in Light 817
Collection Fast Stroke Defining Lash Waterproof Mascara
Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner
Collection Bronze Glow Ultimate Sunkissed
Boots Essentials Natural False Eyelashes
NARS Eyeliner Stylo
Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer
Remember it’s not essential to buy all the products for this look. Obviously, for it to look EXACTLY like mine the best option would be to have the same products as me. However, you can always substitute for similar products you already have at home to create a look that’s just as good!
So, let’s get started!
Apply primer across the whole face including eyelids.
Apply foundation evenly across face and cover up any blemishes using concealer (I use a little BareMinerals with a tiny drop of water, it’s good I promise).
Start with a flat brush and apply ‘Creep’ to the whole lid.
Take the KIKO powder with a fluffy brush, blend into the crease and right up to the brow bone.
With a smaller brush apply a little virgin right under the brow and at the outer corner of the eye.
Apply winged eyeliner.
Trace the top line of the eyeliner with the silver glitter.
Apply mascara and false eyelashes.
Taking a large fluffy brush apply bronzer in a circular motion to the top of the forehead, bringing it down to the temples, cheekbones and finally the jawbone.
Use the London lip cream on the lips.
A whole NYE look in ten steps… I told you it was super easy.
I hope you like this look and find it easy enough to complete. Let me know what you think!
Hi I’m Jess, I’m an animal lover from Leeds, U.K. I started my blog because I hated the idea of animal testing for beauty products and wanted to make a difference. I felt that if I could make it easy for people to use cruelty free, I could inspire people to stop using products tested on animals. So, I started to create reviews and easy tutorials that anyone could follow. I’m also working on expanding my blog to include vegetarian health and fitness in the future.
