New Years Eve Inspired Makeup Look

New Years Eve selfieNew Years Eve is the perfect way to say goodbye to the old and look forward to the new. And what better way to honor the year than with a great face of makeup? This year I made my eyes the focus: contoured, bold, and dark. A statement you could say. The face was kept matte and the lips neutral. But on the eyes, I did not hold back one bit.

I chose to stay true to my style as well. I prefer the slightly more edgy style of makeup. I like contour, I like sharp eyeliner, I thoroughly enjoy my darker color palettes. A pop of color here and dash of sparkle here to glitz this looks up for New Years and we were ready to go!

After going through my skin care routine a while before, I primed my skin with my moisturizing primer. Then I relaxed and let the primer settle so I could achieve a smoother application of my lovely foundation. After the appropriate period of waiting, I applied my foundation with my angled kabuki brush. Once my face had successfully been coated in foundation, I used a fluffy powder brush to apply my translucent powder. With my face set, it was time to add eye primer to my eyelids. Then, while the primer settled I brushed my tinted brow gel through my brows.

For the eye look, I took a domed detailing brush to apply black shadow in my outer v and up through my crease. After each layer of shadow I blended with a pointed blending brush. When working with a dark, messy shadow like black, it’s important to have a light touch. Building your shadow is infinitely simpler then trying to take it off. Once I had created a contoured shape and sharp outer edges with the black, I used a pointed blending brush to blend some dark brown shadow into the black shadow and the outer corner to transition the dark colors. For a pop of color, I again used the pointed blending brush to blend a thin layer of deep pink onto the center of my lid. Then, I took my shader brush to pack on a bright, shimmery shade to the inner third of the lid. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with a matte white shade.

With the shadow finally complete, I moved on to eyeliner. I used liquid liner to create a thick wing and thin line. But to give it something extra, I added some silver glitter eyeliner along my eyeline. To finish off the eyes I coated my lashes with mascara. With the eyes done, I finished my face with my typical contour, bronzer, blush, and highlight. As the finishing touch, I applied my lipstick. To keep the focus on my eyes as well as to create contrast in the look, I kept the lips very neutral. And New Years Eve was spectacular!
