Perfect Party Makeup


I´m still not sure what my New Years Eve outfit will be (nor do I know what I´ll be doing for that matter, my fiancé is taking care of the organization this year so it will be a surprise), but I´m already pretty sure what my makeup will look like. I´m a huge fan of smoky eyes, but I never really got to love the classic, black version. Maybe it´s because it always looks so harsh on me. I love to experiment with various color palettes, and greys and greens are definitely my favorites. This time, I´m going for an unexpected Union Jack combo: silver, blue and a hint of magenta. Can´t wait to see how it turns out! Several coats of jet black mascara are a must, as well as a swipe of fuchsia gloss. Essie´s Size Matters is my new favorite, and it´ll look wonderfully festive with a glittery copper top coat.


Do you already have your makeup in mind? What it will look like?

  1. I hate the smokey eye look in black on myself as well, mine is normally in purple or green to bring out the green in my eyes.

  7. Your make up sounds great! I am the same way I don't like the smokey eye on me, I feel like I never do it right! And I need to find a sparkly outfit for NYE! Hope your week is going well!

  8. Love this post!! What does the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage do? Is it a concealer? And while I am asking such important makeup questions, what kind of pressed powder do you like best for setting makeup? :)

  9. i wanted to do a bold red lip for new years but it will get messed up when i kiss my man friend at midnight! So, Im thinking a cat eye with nude lip instead! I donno what Im wearing either! I need help deciding. I wanted to stray away from a little sexy dress and this year I am thinking of either wearing black leather leggings with a sheer white button up blouse or a black pant suit with a gold glittery top. Any thoughts?
