New Year's Eve Looks

Happy New Year to everyone! For New Year's Eve and general Christmas party looks I have been using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette that was launched last month. It is ideal for a bright-eyed look and the colours are extremely blendable with very little fall out. I used the hot pink (Harajuku) and dark navy blue (Danger) shade in the crease, which resuulted in a very wearable look – not at all like a six-year-old playing with blue eyeshadow thank goodness!

This palette contains a really good mix of colours and a variety of neutrals – even those with cool skin tones will find that the colours work for them. It's an everyday palette but the brighter colours make it ideal for when you want to create a look that's a little different.

For the look below, I used Verve from the Naked 2 Palette on the lid. Then, with a thick angled brush by Real Techniques Brush Starter Set, I used Danger from the Gwen Stefani palette from the outer corner, along the crease of the eye. I used Harajuku and a fluffy brush to blend the colours, focusing on the outer crease. The angled brush was used again to put Danger underneath the eye, before eyeliner and mascara was applied. It wore well throughout the day and although colours were noticeable, they didn't stand out too much. 

This is after 11 hours of wear and without setting spray. Despite some fading, the colours lasted well and didn't overpower. 

Whilst I was banging out the pinks and blues, Jen looked super swish in a LBD with red nails, champers in hand! 

We hope that you all had a fantastic New Year's Eve too and that 2016 brings more champagne, fun and festivities....with some excellent beauty products thrown in for good measure! Happy New Year!
