Now, I'm no stranger to glitter and bold looks but this New Years Eve I decided to go for a more understated glamour with my makeup so that I would compliment (not overwhelm!) my very detailed beaded dress! It's fun to really go for it with your makeup but sometimes it's the subtle simplicity that flatters the most!
1 After smoothing on a foundation primer, buff on your foundation, add concealer in area's of concern, and set with a translucent powder!
2 Buff a shimmering bronzer through the backs of the cheeks, temples, and hairline. Touch it to the nose and chin as well.
3 Pop a light peachy pink natural looking blush to the apples of your cheeks and lightly blend back through the cheekbones.
4 Pat an eyeshadow primer all over the lid and then pack a warm brown eyeshadow all over from the lash line to the crease. Connect this shadow on the outer corners of the eyes and bring it lightly along the outer half of the lower lashes.
5 Blend your brown shadow through your crease very well for super soft and smokey edges. Highlight the brow bone and inner corners of your eyes with a light pink champaign shadow.
6 Press a reflective glitter onto the inner half of the lid and bring it all the way up to the brow on that inner corner/half.
7 Gently line the top lash line with a black liquid or cream liner and add lots of mascara to your lashes!
8 Apply a neutral and natural looking lip colour with a glossy finish!
