2012 New Year’s Eve Makeup Look


Hi everyone!

2012 is right around the corner. Aren’t you excited? Whether you’re staying home for media noche or going out to watch the ball drop (in NYC), you can always rock a beautiful makeup look! What better way to welcome the new year but with a happy, gorgeous, glowing face, right? I filmed this tutorial today, December 29, 2011. I honestly did not have any idea what look to do when I sat in front of my HP V5560U; but I did know that I wanted to do a NYE look for all the ladies out there. I incorporated various techniques that I learned and of course my absolute favorite cat-eye line design. It sexifies any eye look, believe me. So darlings, everything is provided for you in this blog post, the video, the steps, all the products I used and where to get them. I hope you enjoy, and rock that NYE look!

Love, Say

And here’s the blog tutorial:

  1. As always, do your concealing, foundation, and brow routine
  2. Start off by highlighting your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes with any shimmering white eye shadow
  3. Take a silver eye shadow and apply this on the center of the lids
  4. Take 2 strips of tape and apply it on the side of each eye. Wing it out, use the tip of the brow as end point
  5. Take a blue eye shadow and apply this only on the outermost corners of the eyes, pack the color on
  6. Take a purple eye shadow and apply it on the outer V; the tape will create the shape for you, blend subtly towards the center lids but keep the area with the silver shadow untouched
  7. Take a black eye pencil and tightline your eyes. Line your waterline as well, and go further to the inner corners of the eyes.
  8. Take a liquid eye liner and line your eyes, wing it out subtly as we want the colors to stand out
  9. While lining, go further from the inner corners of your eyes, this will create a sexy cat-eye effect that will accentuate your eye shape even more
  10. Take the purple eye shadow and line your lower lashline
  11. Using a silver eye shadow, line the inner part of your lower lashline
  12. Curl your lashes and apply generous amounts of mascara
  13. Cut a full false lash in half, and apply each on each eye, with the fuller side on the outermost part of the lash line. This will make your eyes look even more dramatic and sexy; using demi lashes gives an illusion of longer lashes
  14. Contour your face
  15. Apply blush
  16. Apply nude/soft coral lip color

And there you have it. The perfect NYE look.
