This post has been hard work I tell ya. I’m at the tail end of my horrible Christmas-ruining illness and my god my skin/general self has been on the ugly to horrific side for the past few days, leading to several failed attempts at getting some quality images.
As if it’s almost New Year’s Eve? The festive month flies by but unlike most people who seem to be in shock at how quickly 2014 has passed, I couldn’t be more different. It’s been a long old year, with things that happened last January and February feeling like years ago. I’ll have more on 2014 reflections in a post at the end of this week.
As for a make up look for the 31st of December, if there was ever a time to go all out on the whole glitter-eyeliner-bold lip shebang it is now! I’ve been loving Maybelline’s 24hr Colour Tattoo cream shadows and layered the shade On and On Bronze, a really shimmery warm bronze, over Creamy Beige, a great day to day matte taupe as part of the Leather Effects collection. For liner, I donned the pot and flat brush technique in a dark brown as I find it much easier to gain perfect precision than with free hand liners.
For lips, I filled them in with Rimmel’s Lasting Finish lip liner in the shade 011 Spice, a really rosy tone that was a pleasant surprise in its impressive formula, and then popped the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade Cruella to vamp up the whole look.
Whatever you are doing this New Year’s Eve, I hope you have a bloody wonderful night! See you next year! 🙂
