Being the lazy ass comfort junkie I am, dressing up for new year’s eve is a no go for me; besides I recently discovered that I actually hate new year’s eve celebrations. However, I will not deny that it’s a wonderful excuse to overdress and that includes overdressing your nails too. Sparkle, glitter, stones or foils – anything that most probably looks absurd on a day look would look absolutely appropriate on your nails once the clock hits 00.00. [metaslider id=32583] .
Two reaons this is going to be your favorite make up trend this winter: 1) You can skip the make up part all together and just drink two glasses of red wine at the beginning of the evening without having to explain to anyone or checking your lips every 5 minutes 2) You can put on this make up and don’t care about what you eat&drink or kiss all day long because it simply can’t smudge. How to achieve? First frame your lips with a nude lipliner or lipstick, then use a lip marker or apply the lipstick, lip pencil or crayon of your choice by dabbing your finger lightly on your inner lips. For the ombre look you can use a lighter & darker shade of the same color or simply dab more inside and less closer to the lip frame.
Couple of days ago when I saw a beautiful girl out in the daylight with a super natural golden eye shadow and no other makeup on her face (of whom I wanted to take a photo so bad but was afraid to look like a freak) I realized that gold eye makeup is an overlooked fraction of daily beauty routine as well as party looks. Especially now that it’s officially winter and we all need that little shimmer around our eyes to replace the gleam in them, I propose we lightly use gold eyeshadow especially around the inner eye corner if not under brows and compliment with black mascara only. I refuse to give in to the winter moodiness, not quite yet.
