I always have so much fun getting all dolled up for New Year’s Eve, which also happens to be my birthday, and this look is great for an evening out or a festive house party with friends and family! Because the eyes are so intense, I decided to go with a nude lip. Also, red lips can be a hassle to maintain with all the eating that goes on!
First I applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lid as a primer, and then I applied Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Tough as Taupe in the outer corner and crease of my eyes. From my Lancome Colour Design eyeshadow quad I applied “Designer”, a deep shimmery emerald colour, over the centre of the lid, and then I applied “Volcano”, a deep shimmery taupe colour, in the outer corners and crease. Over top of Volcano I applied “IT List” in the very outer corners and took it just lightly through the outer crease. Above my crease line I applied the darkest shade from my Clinique Colour Surge eyeshadow duo Chocolate Kiss, and blended it out. To highlight the brow bone, I applied “Latte” just below the arch in my brow. I lined my outer lower lash line with “Volcano”, and then in the centre of the lower lash line I applied “Designer” and blended the two colours together. To finish, I applied a thin line of black eyeliner on my top lash line and smudged it out to increase the smoky effect, and then finished with several coats of mascara.
Have fun recreating the look, and happy New Year!
