Another get ready with me aren't you lucky ;) I am off to my friends for a New Years gathering which I can't wait for! I really want to show you my makeup as I am hoping to go all out. I have also picked out some old favourites too because I don't like people thinking that maybe I just buy something and never use it again because some of these products are essentials.
For primer I am using the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Primer. The formula is gel like which I love because a little can go such a long way and I can easily blend it around my face. It makes your face velvety smooth and ready for your foundation to be applied giving that amazing blurred look.
The foundation I have chosen is the Revlon PhotoReady of course for any major event which once again photos may be involved! It has such a buildable coverage which can make you look flawless without any cakeyness. It also has a subtle shimmer which I love (although criticised) as I love a good glow! It lasts all night which means I don't have to be stuck in a bathroom reapplying it.
I dust my powder of choice on my face to set my foundation which is the Rimmel Stay Matte of course which sets my foundation so perfectly and gets rid of that shine I don't want!
For blush I am using my new Christmas present which is the Tarte 12hr Amazionan Clay Blush in Blissful which I can never stop looking at, its a work of art. I have always wanted a Tarte product so badly as so many people I know in the US rave about them as a brand but they truly do live up to all expectations and recommendations. It provides such a pretty flush of colour which looks so effortlessly done. The blush does actually last for a good ol time too!
I am also using this Beauty UK Baked Blush for a highlight on my cheeks also.
For contour and bronzer (its weird how I try to make two in one but oh well) I use the Sleek Face Form palette which I completely forgot I had until I was rummaging through my acrylic storage earlier and thought ooo I love this product why I have I stopped using it? Therefore I just grabbed it and used my fan brush to define my cheekbones and the champagne shade is really pigmented so I apply this to my upper cheekbone and the length of my nose. The tone/shade of the brown just really warms your face and for me enhancing my complexion so much, making me look healthy.
For my brows of course I am using my Sleek Brow Kit, can someone recommend a great brow powder product below please as I am needing some variety soon!
To create (of course) a smoky eye I've gone for my beloved Naked 3 palette which I have raved about so so much and you can check out a full review here! The colours are so beautiful and I have had this product for over a year now and it still is so stunning to me. I knew never knew how many different looks you can create with neutral eyeshadows.
For eyeliner I am using my favourite GOSH cream eyeshadow stick which I just adore and just goes so well with this dark smoky eye I am going for.
I am priming my mascara using my Urban Decay Superversion Lash Primer as it is amazing! It's a white formula that you apply beforehand which makes your eyelashes longer, fuller and have a lot more volume.
On top of this primer I've applied my Loreal Miss Manga Mascara as I have lost my Loreal one!! Sad times. This is a perfect replacement though as it does what it says on the tin and provides 'mega volume'
For my lips I am using the Loreal Lipstick called Made For Me Naturals Lipstick in 303 Rose Tendre. It is a beautiful sheer lipstick which looks so natural and I adore the frost finish. I just love the colour as its so cute and reminds me of Barbie or something.
And this is my outfit......
I have just opted for a cool knitted jumper and used accessories to jazz it up a little as I am going round my friends house so I want to look casual but also look like I have actually made an effort which I have through my makeup and jewellery. I have also painted my nails a green/gold to match my jewellery too. I will wear some heeled boots and my faux fur gillet also.
I am really sorry but for now all I have are some Snapchat pictures of my makeup but tomorrow I will upload some nice ones!
There we go! I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great new years eve, paryting the night away! Love you all and happy new year.
