Party Looks For NYE

Leading up to the new year, I am going to be featuring some party looks using my editorial tearsheets from December and January issues of Simply Her magazine in Singapore.

The look above is a smokey reddish brown using a solid base of MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork (cream eyeshadow) all over the lid. Paint Pots dry fast so you have to work fast using your fingers or a sponge. Next step, use a shimmer/ metallic color like a reddish or dark orange working in the shape of a half moon across the crease (Halfway into your lids) and all the way into the tear duct. Note – use a blending brush like this one by MAC (or any other brand just note the fan shape of the brush), and blend the colors in a circular motion so they mash together nicely). Makeup technique takes time and practice so don’t get frustrated – watch how the pros do it! I really like Pixiwoos tutorials.

I should add the brows were filled in using a Kohl eyeliner pencil. If you want eyes to go the distance, dab a little bit of Makeup Setting Spray over the eyelids and eyebrows (see my post here about this topic).

Lastly, the lips were done using a lipstain base – you can use Revlon Bitten or Cover Girl Outlast, cheap and very good for long lasting strong colored lips. Over this, you can apply a matte lipstick of your choice (MAC or OCC liptars are the best).
