FESTIVE FACE TIME
By: Evelyn Chen
With New Year’s Eve around the corner, it’s the perfect time to pull out all the stops and play with sparkles, glitter, and rich colours. The best part of New Years is that you can get away with luxurious looks you may not necessarily dare to wear the rest of the year. Whether it be that sparkly glittering dress to a simple minimalistic look, we’ve got you covered.
Sparkles meets Smokey
Dress: Oak + Fort
If you’re donning a simple sparkling dress, try pairing it with a classic smokey eye. For the dare devils, try incorporating rich colours with your smokey eye. The perfect palette for both of these is Urban Decay, VICE3 Eyeshadow Palette. The best friend of a smokey eye is a glossy nude lip. The Make Up For Ever, Lab Shine Lip Gloss- D16- Shimmering Beige works for all skin tones and gives you that added sheen without the mess.
Simply Get Glittered
For simple minimalists, take advantage of your clean slate and add pop of colour, glitter or both! Make Up For Ever, Gold 1- Metallic Yellow Gold pigment will attract eyes, while the dark alluring colour of NARS Audacious Lipstick, Liv- Deep Aubergine creates a beautiful contrast.
Gold Goddess Glamour
A classic look never fails. To get an intense black winged eye try Make Up Forever Aqua Liner, 13 Mat Black. To finish your look, indulge yourself with the limited edition Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Courture, 9 Rouge Laque. A classic red for a classic look.
Mix and match to see which one fits and have fun with it. Let’s rein in the new year with a little bit of sass.
