New Years Eve Makeup Looks
December 28, 2011
When it comes to makeup, New Years Eve is the perfect time for a daring dramatic look, whether you chose to accent your skin, eyes, lips or all of the above. Step out in sultry, sexy, glamorous makeup, puting your best face forward. It is very important to create a flawless face that has staying power especially for the ladies who “party like a rockstar.”
Eyes: Take your inspiration from the runway and also take advantage of this festive evening to be bold and dramatic. Experiment with metallics: Chose gold or silver eyeshadow to highlight the eyelids. Add a bit of shimmer and sparkle to the eyelid area to make your eyes pop. Next line your eyes with liquid eyeliner in black. The caviar-like shine of the liquid liner will frame the eyes perfectly giving them a smokey smoldering effect. For an extra punch, line the tear line (bottom inside of eyelids) with black pencil eyeliner. Nothing gives eyes more drama and sex appeal then long fluttery eyelashes. Therefore false eyelashes are a magnificent way to pull the focus to your eyes. My personal favorite is using individual eyelashes because I can control the intensity I want to achieve. However eyelash strips come in a variety of styles in terms of volume, length and thickness, and are easier to apply.
Skin: A seamless complexion is a must and can be easily created with the right foundation for your skin type and color. For super staying power start with clean moisturized face, smooth foundation primer on to your eyelids, forehead, nose and chin (T-zone area that tends to get oilier and shinier then the rest of the face). Apply foundation with a foundation brush for smooth, even application and blend it well into the neck line. (There is nothing less attractive then seeing the separation of skin and foundation at the chin). To help your foundation last longer dust your face LIGHTLY with a setting powder. Cheeks get highlighted with blush first and then a touch of golden bronzer for flushed skin that appears radiant and luminescent from within.
Lips: Accent your lips with a bold bright color such as red, orange, or hot pink. There are a variety of lipstick textures from creamy to shiny or matte. It’s really up to you.
New Years Eve is a great opportunity to show off a dramatic, sexy makeup look, that is a bit more daring and extravagant then on any other night of the year!
