New Year’s makeup: some glitter please

Last year our Christmas night was kind of relaxed and homey. This year I plan to practically do the same; a lovely home-made dinner and some fun movies. Both Jimmy’s family and mine are far away so we have each other to keep company and celebrate new traditions together.

My mother-in-law and my brother-in-law are coming to visit and spend New Year’s Eve with us so I hope we have some time to go out and celebrate!

I was searching for some make up inspiration on Pinterest and decided that this New Year is going to sparkle big time. I am going for shimmer and glitter!

Here I present you my inspiration for New Year’s Eve makeup.

Eyes: fabulous gold eyeshadow

I have brown eyes and I have learned what colors suit me and what colors make me look like I had a fight with a makeup artist.

Gold looks good on brown eyes because it is part of that color palette (what the heck, gold look good on everything!). I like to wear a smoky eye and then fill it with gold on the inside crease. Sometimes I wear black liner on the top lid and a small golden line under the eye. Looks pretty good if you ask me.

On the bottom I have posted three makeup tutorials I found on Youtube. Enjoy!

Cat eye, red lips inspiration

We have to thank Ms. Marilyn Monroe for this one: black eyeliner and bright red lips are a fashion statement I love. I have to confess it is a high maintenance lip color because I find myself reapplying it several times. There are some nice no-smudge-long-wear reds out there but it’s not for me. My lips get weird and you better like the color because it is a-pain-in-the-neck to take it off.

So for this week I present you the cat eye-red lips inspiration:
