My New Years Eve Makeup

New Years Eve Makeup

Hello Beauties! I cannot believe it is the last day of 2016! I have had a thoroughly amazing year but in some ways I am glad to see the back of it! I am so so excited to see in the new year, as I have lots of things I'm looking forward to. We are planning on buying a house together this year so that's the biggest thing I'm excited about - I can't wait to see what house we end up buying! Hopefully we'll also be able to re-book our holiday after we had to cancel Bali this year, although where I'm not too sure just yet! Anyway, it's only a quick one today, so for my last post of the year I thought I would share what makeup I'm wearing for New Years Eve!


New Years Eve Makeup

For my base I'm wearing my Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation. I love the finish of this and the way it looks on my skin but the shade I've got (30 Beige) is a bit dark so it only works when I've got fake tan on. I should buy the right shade in it really because I do love it! Then I'll set with my usual Armani loose powder and bronze with Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light. This is a really good bronzer for neutral-yellow toned skin and it never looks too terracotta! I'm going to use my new Rimmel Sculpting Palette for contour and highlight; I bought it in Italy as a 'quick-fix' because I forgot to take a highlighter and I really like it! For blush I'm going to use Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Uber Beige with some of the blush from the Rimmel palette on top. I adore the BB Pot Rouge, it gives the skin such a nice glow! 

For eyes I'm using my Tom Ford Eye Quad in Golden Mink. The glitter shades in the palette are so pretty and perfect for New Years Eve! I'm using my Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink smudged out for more of a smokey look and then BB Smokey Eye Mascara (not pictured) - it's so good for a false lash effect and gives so much volume I love it! On my brows I'm using my NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe (not pictured) - this is a new purchase that I bought before we went away and I love it! It's such a good colour for me as it has no reddy-brown tones in it all. 

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Kim KW and MAC Cremesheen Glass in Boy Bait

On my lips I'm going to wear my new Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in Pillow Talk which I got for Christmas and on top a Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Kim KW. To me it is such a perfect pink shade and it works so well with a smoky eye. On top I'm going to use a MAC Cremesheen Gloss in Boy Bait - it matches really well with the lipstick so doesn't change the colour too much.

And that's pretty much it! I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and a fab start to the new year. I don't really have any resolutions, as even when I do make them I never keep to them! I loved starting this blog this year as it has given me something so creative to work on and the blogging community is so supportive, I have really enjoyed doing it. It is something I really want to continue and improve on in the new year! Do you have any resolutions?

HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
