Affordable New Years Eve Makeup 2016

 “Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.” 
― Bill Vaughan

New years eve makeup always have to involve glitter and sparkle right? Or am I just using it as an excuse… I never feel more in the party mood then when I have a disco ball on my eyelid, and this year is no different from the last.

Barry M glitter dust is perfect to shimmer in to the new year with, with the added benefit of not burning a hole in your pocket. I’ve chosen to wear the silver dust for my big night out, but the gold version is just equally as pretty and worth a look.

As with all glitters it’s best to apply a cream base on your lid first, otherwise the glitter won’t stick. Any light cream eyeshadow/highlight will do the job.

My eyelashes are the wonderful one pound lash from Superdrug in natural one.

I want the main focus to be on my glitter eyes so I have paired Rimmels East End Snob lip pencil with a light pink lipgloss. Applying a lip pencil around your lip line then carefully blending up your lip with a lip gloss gives a really nice natural ombre finish to the lip, and also means when your lip products start wearing off your not left with a a liner lip.

And there you have it. Simple, pretty, cheap New Years eve makeup. I hope whatever your doing tonight you have an amazing time.
