FOTD: New Year’s Eve

3 Jan

HAIR – These loose curls are the remnants of a dry roller set on jumbo rollers after several days of wrapping it at night. My bang area was looking kinda wonky (half curly/half straight), so I pinned it back & came up w/ this hairdo…

Now onto THE MAKEUP!


PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt

SHADOW: I applied matte pinkish-burgundy e/s (from the Shany 120 palette) to my crease, using my Sonia Kashuk crease brush & used sparkly, blackened purple e/s (from the Wet N Wild Lust palette) to deepen my outer v. Then I used matte peach e/s (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette) to highlight my brow bone. I used a flat brush to pat this pewter-ish glitter dust onto my lower eyelid. I’m 87.3% sure that it’s one of the LA Splash Diamond Dusts, but I don’t know which one. See I broke the original jar ages ago & transferred it to this generic container, so there’s no label. So let’s just call it “moondust” LOL!

OTHER DETAILS… I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy brow wax & CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with Wet N Wild cream liner in black & my waterline with Ulta glitter eyeliner pencil in Silver. I also used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010for light to medium complexions).

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Magenta Mint

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Did you get glammed up this weekend? What’d you do to celebrate the new year?

    @fabo: Sally’s BSS sells cosmetic glitter. A few of the Wal-marts in Montgy sell glitter by this company called Hard Candy. If you’re going to Ulta, they have a few choices too (for example NYX cosmetics & LA Splash). If you’re shopping online you can buy glitter @, or

      I’m a habitual procrastinator, so I didn’t have time to film that day. But I’ll put it on my to do list. 🙂

    Very pretty. I wish I knew how to master applying makeup. I guess practice makes perfect.
