Winter Party Look.

29 Dec 2014

While Christmas is now over, it's still the winter party season with New Year just a few days away. While I don't really go out for new year and we just spend it at home with friends it's nice to make a little bit of an effort to welcome the new year so here's what make up I'll be wearing and hopefully it will give yourself some ideas.
Starting with the base is a new and expensive foundation which is the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in 3.5. I don't want to give a full opinion on the foundation as of yet but I will say for the sake of this post that I know it's a great long lasting foundation so will last all the way till 2015 if you where it on New Years Eve! To conceal under the eyes I used my usual 17 Stay Time Concealer and my Collection Lasting Perfection on any blemishes; as you can see from the photo my concealing wasn't really on point on this certain day as well as having a particularly spotty day. To contour, again, will come as no surprise, I used the Sleek Face Form Kit in Fair. For this look I just contoured and then used the highlight in the palette with no blush.
Eyebrows. I took my Naked Basics palette and the shade Naked 2 to fill in my eyebrows and then used my Rimmel Brow This Way to set them in place. For eyes I decided to get some use out of my MUA Heaven and Earth palette. I started by taking the shimmery white shade all over the lid but concentrating mainly on the inner corner before taking the shade next to it onto the outer half of the lid. To intesify the look slightly more I took a dark shimmery purple/brown into the crease as well as the outer corner. For lashes I used my amazing new discovery which is the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara. The lengthening this mascara does is insane and great for people who want full, long lashes with out the fuss of fake eye lashes. After applying that to my top and bottom lashes, I took my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder over the face focusing on the T zone and under the eyes. 
Finally lips. Everyone loves a good berry red and is why I included my 17 lipstick in Rich. You've seen me wear that before so I opted for a new combination of my L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick with my Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Chic.

And that's it!I hope you enjoyed this post. 
What make up look are you going to rock for new year?
Hope you're doing great,
