NYE Make-Up looks for 2011

The New Year is upon us! And what’s a better way to ring it in than with a glass of champagne (or sparkling cider!), good company, and a fun make-up look!
Smoky eyes are always a great choice. A smoky eye is a timeless look that suits every gal! A smoky eye is always easiest to perfect with a pre-made shadow kit. We’re in love with Philosophy Supernatural Eye Palettes Smoke and Mirrors. It’s a kit with silky, fade-resistant mineral powders for lid, crease and shimmer effect, plus a long-wearing, wet-to-dry powder liner for quick definition and an easy finish.
If you like a pop of color for your smoky eye, try incorporating an emerald green or a navy shade along with your blacks and grays. Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette is a fun little kit with 9 different shades, and “look cards” that will enable you to create professional looks at home!
If you’d rather opt for a bold pout then try a festive red lip. First exfoliate your lips for a smooth canvas. Use a dry toothbrush in a circular motion over your lips, gently buffing away dead skin cells, or use a lip scrub like Philosophy Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub. After you’ve buffed, apply a bit of lip balm to smooth your pucker. Line your lips with a feather-resistant lip liner, and fill in your entire lips with the liner you’ve lined with! Stila Long Wear Lip Liner – Passionate is amazing! Then apply a coat of bold red lipstick or bright red lip gloss… we like Philosophy the Supernatural Superglossy Open Your Heart. Keep the rest of your makeup very simple- just a bit of bronzer and mascara will do!
And of course… what is NYE without a bit of sparkle?! Alterna Caviar Glitterati Shimmer – Sparkling Shine Spray is a great sparkle spray for your hair that adds jewel-like brilliance and celebratory shimmer! If you desire a sexy glow and flawless-looking skin then bareMinerals Body Lingerie is your go-to body product. The subtle, natural vanilla scent completes this perfect finishing touch!
We wish you all a HAPPY, HEALTHY and SAFE New Year!
Happy 2011!
