My New Years Eve Look

Happy 2012! My new years eve celebration was a fun filled night with a great traditional last dinner with my family continued with some dancing and a few drinks!

My day started out around 10am and had a great big breakfast with my girls then I went up to get ready for work. I wanted to do something different but with knowing the fact that I was going to be making ladies pretty all day long and I knew what the #1 request of the day was, I did the traditional silver glitter and black eye look.

I also noticed that most YouTube makeup gurus all had some version of the silver and black NYE look. The look is quite simple. A cat eye shape with black shadow, leaving the lid bare, just with primer.  I applied non latex eye lash glue with a wet fiber concealer brush and applied silver cosmetic glitter on the lids. I applied a liquid liner close to the lashes with a little wing. Under the eyes I lined the waterline with a white Kohl pencil and just below the bottom lashes I smudged black shadow. I applied a silvery white shadow on the brow bone and used a mid matte brown to blend and soften the black shadow on the crease.
I used a volumizing mascara and some false lashes.

The rest of the face I kept very minimal. I used a bronzer to give me warmth and a peachy blush.
Lips were very glossy and lined all over with a natural pencil.

How did you do on NYE?
