New Year’s Eve is all about gilt loaded and platinum popped bashes everywhere in the town and you sure want to look utterly fantastic, amidst the glimmer and shimmer. Partying like a rock star on New Year’s Eve is passé, the trend this year to rock the party with oodles of glitter, glitz and drama. Amp up your look with a sparkling makeup infused with lots of metallic and daring colors, to look uber chic when you ring in New Year tonight.
Shimmer make up is de rigueur, and can make you shine like a star in your soiree tonight. But shimmer is quite tricky, apply too much and you look like a flashbulb and too little is like why bother. An overdose of glitter can drop down your look from uber classy to completely trashy. Not to worry lovelies, we have a master class to make you the girl-about-town with luminous skin, glittery lips and metallic eyes.
A radiant shimmery foundation is the best way to give our skin a soft luminous complexion. Prep your face with a good moisturizer, and because you wish to draw attention to your gleaming cheeks, keep your eyes and lips neutral with a matte finish. A hint of gloss for your lips and fairly neutral makeup for your eyes will be just perfect. For the rest of your face, a little shimmer will nicely highlight the apples of your cheeks, your chin and the bridge of your nose. Don’t overdo, the trick is to just blend it more girl!
If you are the shy, coy types and going all shimmery, glimmer is not your style, you can still rock the party tonight with shimmer blush on dewy, sun kissed face. You may try tinted moisturizers to prepare your skin with a healthy glow; it also acts as a protective shield.
Glittery glosses with bright and vibrant colors will ooze a delicate charm and make you a sensuous seductress. Be brave with lots of metallic and glittery sparkle, with light reflecting particles make sure you light up the whole town with just a flash of your smile. For a perfect lip statement, outline your lips with a liner along with the lipstick. When you have dramatized your lips, it better to skip the shimmery eye shadow and accentuate your eyes with a stroke of mascara.
Glitter looks best only when applied on a slight matte surface, so when you are going to play up with your eyes keep the face and your lips matte. Dab on some translucent powder so as to catch bits of glitter falling on your cheeks, and ensure a fairly matte finish. If you want to buck the smoky eyes and nude lips bizzo, using a glamorous thick metallic eye liner would be a great idea. Metallic colors like silver, bronze and gold are great to be blended close to your upper lash line.
Try out all these and dazzle up the eve and start your new year with a sparkling glow with these tips!
