New Year's Makeup Look

I was so busy getting my outfit for the New Year' Eve, that I didn't get a chance to plan my makeup look. I know, what was I thinking.
For the New Year's Eve makeup look,  I opted for a modern metallic smoky eye. I wanted to keep the eyes bright and yet smoky. I finished the look with glowy pink cheeks and nude lip. So it's all glitz and glam this New Year's Eve.
And here is the finished look, hope you like it ladies!


Apply a light moisturizer or primer all over your face as a base.
Step 1: Foundation

Apply a sheer foundation all over your face.
Product used:Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow in No 4
Step 2: Highlighter

Apply the highlighter straight down the middle of your nose, under the eyes, the forehead, cupids bow and chin and blend with your fingers or a small due fibre brush.
Product used: Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in No 2

Step 3: Powder

Set the base with a light powder using a powder puff or powder brush. I like to apply the powder only to the T-Zone, and leave the rest of the face free of powder, as it sets into the fine lines and only emphasize them more and also to much powder will make the skin look very dry.
Product used: Charlotte Tilbury
Step 4

Apply metallic brown crème blush to your lid as base and blend with a brush or your fingers towards your brows. The color should be very concentrated on your lids.
Product used: MAC Creme eyeshadow in Constructivist 
Step 5
Apply the same creme eyeshadow to the lower lid and blend again.
Step 7
Line your eyes with a black pencil and smudge with a pencil brush or a cotton bud. Also apply the pencil to the lower lid waterline.

Step 8

Apply a light shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye and just under the brown bone with a small brush.
Step 12

Apply two coats of black mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

Step 13

Brush the eyebrows upwards and define them with an eyedefiner pencil and eyeshadow or a brow pencil.

Step 14: Bronzer

Apply Bronzer to the temples, on the cheekbones and just right under the jaw line in a figure of 3.

Step 15: Highlighter
Apply a powder highlighter straight down the middle of your nose, above the cheekbones, the forehead, cupids bow and chin with a small contouring brush.
