New Year’s Shimmer

17 Dec

Say goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011! To celebrate the ending of another year, we’ve put together a makeup look with dazzling blue and silver colors. Inspired by the drop of the ball, the fun and excitement of the New Year’s countdown, and a midnight kiss, this bold, Asian eye makeup look is perfect to end 2010 with a bang!

This makeup look is chic and glamorous, a perfect look to accent the New Year’s festivities. So, enjoy the end of the year with our New Year’s Shimmery Asian eye makeup look.

How to get the look:

1. Start with fresh, clean skin before applying the makeup look. Apply a moisturizing cream to your for smooth makeup application. For a long lasting effect, use a primer before applying your foundation.

2. Prep your skin with a natural foundation matching your skin tone, using a foundation brush for an even finish. Use a large powder brush to set your foundation with pressed powder, lightly dusting over your T-zone to mattify and conceal shine.

1. Use an eyeshadow base for a long lasting hold. Dust shimmery, white eyeshadow on your eyelids, using a large eyeshadow brush to blend color from lash line to eyebrow.

2. Dust on iridescent, light gray shadow onto your eyelid.

3. Using a blending shadow brush, blend a deep blue eyeshadow into the crease and outer edge of your eyelid making a C shape.

1. Apply a dark turquoise eyeliner along your bottom lash line, stopping halfway to the inner corner of your eye.

2. Line the bottom lash line from the inner corner of your eye and into the deep blue shadow you applied in the last step, using a small eyeshadow brush.

3. Line your top lash line with matte black eyeliner. To achieve a thin even line, apply with a small, angled eyeliner brush using small strokes.

4. To accent your eyelashes, apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes.

The Cheeks

Apply peach colored blush with a large blush brush to your cheek bones, blending from your hairline to the center of your cheeks.

The Lips

Apply a shimmery light brown lip gloss, using a lip brush for an added touch.
