NYE Makeup Look

I have created my ideal New Year's Eve makeup look using some of the products given to me in my recent swap. My friend, Rita, was kind enough to send me some incredible products all the way from Portugal! Here is what I have come up with (and I have also incorporated some products I already owned):

I started out by priming my eyelids with my current obsession: Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight. This gives you a lovely base and allows your shadow to stay on all night without creasing. It has a nice gold sheen, which makes this product ideal for NYE. 

KIKO Eyeshadow in 208

Next I went in all over my lids with my new KIKO eyeshadow. This gorgeous gold shadow is the perfect shade for this fun evening. Bonus: these eyeshadows are highly pigmented and long-wearing; they can also be used wet or dry.

It is no surprise that I had to reach for my trusty eyeliner to create the perfect wing for tonight's look. This eyeliner is my go-to for looks that last all night. 

For some voluminous lashes, I went with the obvious choice. The Miss Manga mascara gives me that  "clumpy in the best way possible" kind of look. And I am all over it. After several coats, my eyes are ready to go.

Moving right along with foundation. The NARS Sheer Glow was an obvious choice. It is my ultimate foundation pick for the wintertime because I do not want my skin to look too matte and dull. This foundation gives me just the right amount of coverage too. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 (Fair)

To conceal any blemishes or redness, I am reaching for my handy new concealer from Rita. This is great because it is a bit of a higher coverage concealer and blends seamlessly into my skin. 

Bourjois Bronzer + Highlighter Duo

I had to use this chocolate-scented duo to give me a bit of a glow. Even if it is the dead of winter, I don't want my skin to reflect that. This bronzer-highlighter combo is quickly winning a place in my heart. 

To add a little warmth to the cheeks, I went for this Hourglass blush. I am aiming for that "I just returned from a walk in the snow and my cheeks are flushed" look (a mere dream in California). This is not only the ultimate winter blush but the ultimate NYE blush as well. 

Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Chic

To round things off, I topped my lips with my new Tanya Burr lipgloss. I went for a nude lip with this look to leave focus on the eyes. This lipgloss is not only good for a night out but for everyday use as well. 

What products are you reaching for this New Year's Eve?

Be safe. Have fun. Happy New Year!
