Sooo...NYE plans changed. After spending a huge amount of money over Christmas and burning a hole in my pocket, I decided to cancel downtown. Instead, we are having drinks and appetizers at my place and then going out by the beach...which just happens to be walking distance from my house. I still think it will be a great time! Noelle, the best friend, aka Beautygirl24 is coming to go out with me and we will most definitely take pictures! I went to the store tonight and got loads of champagne, noise makers, fruit, ice and all the necessities to ring in the New Year right.
I wanted to do a test run of my makeup tonight and I am happy with how it came out. I wish the glitter would show up more in the camera because I used gobs of it..but you get the idea...I used several new makeup products I bought recently from Sephora with Christmas gift cards :)
I did a "professional" foundation routine for this look. I wanted a matte and dewy face all in one and I find the way to get that is patience and quite a few face products.
Face: Benefit: primer, erase paste, boi-ing, lemonade, eye-bright Mac: foundation in NC25, blush in pink swoon, highlighter in pearl Nars: Face powder in Beach; MUFE: Bronzer in #4, HD powder...phew that is a lot of products..I don't do this everyday, but for special occasions, this is the way to go..trust me..your face will look flawless in pictures...
Eyes: Midnight Cowboy by UD, Smog by UD, antique gold glitter by Mac, black cream el by Loreal Paris, zoom lash mascara by Mac...on NYE I am slapping on the falsies
Lips: Mac pro lipcream in Overtime, MUFE aqua waterproof lip pot in #6 and a tad bit of Mac dazzleglass in sugarrimed.
I know it sounds like a lot, but trust me peeps..this makeup will take you all the way through midnight and the next day!
Here is a close up of the lips...This is waterproof makeup, so buyer beware..if you do get a Mac prowear ls and the MUFE lip pot, be sure you are in love with the color, because it will stick around whether you want it to or not!
This is the necklace I am wearing on NYE..I love it!
This is my lips AFTER scrubbing the product off and there is still color deposit.
I wanted to do all gold and off white this year. I decorated the tree with some of my pearl necklaces, hair clips and star fish from around the house. I was very happy with how it came out :)
Time for bed now...:)
Happy Happy Happy NYE!
