NYE is one of my favourite nights of the year but it's also SO overrated. I love it because I get to spend time with my favourite people, dress up and put lots of glitter on my eyes!! This year I'm wearing a navy blue bandage dress from Missguided so I want to go for a gold smokey eye and a nude lip. Today I'm sharing with you my NYE makeup picks so if anyone is looking for any last minute inspiration then this might help you.

After moisturising my face, the first step is applying my Benefit Porefessional Primer all over the face then go in with my Too Faced Born This Way foundation using my flat top kabuki foundation brush. I also use my primark oval makeup brush too to blend the foundation. To conceal I use my trustee Collection Concealer before contouring using the bronzer in my Sleek Face Kit. I like to apply a lot of this bronzer as it's not got a glitter in it so it's a dirty colour which is great for hollowing out the cheeks. I then apply a little but of the blush in the sleek kit on the apples of my cheeks before using a dusting of MAC Gold Deposit over the contour and the MAC Soft and Gentle for my highlight. I like to wet my brush slightly before applying the highlight so that it pops.


For my eye base I use my MUA Eye primer before applying a matte brown shade in the crease. I then apply a gold all over the lid before smoking out the outer v using a black shade from the Makeup Revolution Palette. I also then go back in with a bronzy gold to blend everything together. Like my highlighter, I also like to wet my brush before applying the glitter shade so that it is more pigmented. I like to then apply a pearl shade to the inner corner of my eyes to make them pop. I apply my trustee L'Oreal Supercat Liner with a subtle wing on the eye before applying my new Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. I then move onto my eyebrows before applying lashes. For my brows I use my favourite Freedom brow pomade to shape and define. I use the Ardell Demi Wispies for lashes and apply with the DUO lash glue.

For lips I always apply my all time favourite Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream before doing the rest of my makeup. Once that's sunk in I over line my lips slightly using my MAC lip liner in Whirl and then apply my favourite pinky nude L'Oreal Lipstick in 604 Erotique.



  1. My NYE will be at home, make up free. I just don't feel like putting make up on, I'm a bit lazy today. But you look great and make up is pretty!

    1. Thank you - sometimes the best New Years are the ones snuggled up watching Netflix eating all the chocolate. Happy new year lovely.
