Hey Beauty Lovers! New Years Eve is almost there, just one day left and this is the look I came up with that I will be wearing. It's important to start with the outfit, depending on what you will be wearing you can then create a fitting beauty look that will be in tune with the style. I have decided to keep it chic and wear a black dress, but because it's a rather special night I have also gone for a bit of sparkle. Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 85 Mirifique is the perfect match, as it's a black cream/mousse textured eyeshadow with lots and lots of black and silver fine glitters! It is a stunning shade, I'd highly recommend it!

So to create this rather stunning smokey eye I have first applied a base, I find the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadows sit much better when applied over a base. In this case I used the MAC Paints in Sublime Nature [a neutral shade], over the top I layered a generous amount of Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Marifique. If you prefer a sheer look one layer will be enough, but I repeating this step twice as I was going for a more pigmented look, and it also makes the eyeshadow last much longer. Then for extra definition I have lined the lid with MAC Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline, which is a very intense black, blending it with the eyeshadow. And on the waterline and under the lower lashes I applied the Charlotte Tilbury Rock 'N' Kohl  Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black, which is a soft black and it's absolutely smudge-proof, it will last a whole night without transferring under the eyes.

Because the eyes are so intense I chose Chanel Powder Blush  in 84 Accent [a must-have], it's the most gorgeous bronzy shimmery shade, very natural and warm. And of course I wanted my skin to look fresh and glowy, so I added a touch of Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Skin Gilding Highlighter, it can be used on the face and body, so I applied it on the top of my cheek-bones and also highlighted my collarbone! And as for the lip I wanted to keep it nude-ish with a touch of pink and quite light. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 8 Pink in Confidence, is perfect for this type of look as it is super moisturising and really lightweight and sheer. To make it also last longer I applied it over the Cosmetics a la Carte Plump & Prime lip base, which makes any lipstick look even better!
