New Year Makeup Tips

Say goodbye to 2008 looking like the most glamourous you and unleash a touch of shimmer- Give Posh spice’s cheekbones a run for her money and brush a touch of shimmer across your cheeks for super sexy highlighted shine.  This makes them pop- I love Bobbi Browns Shimmer Bricks- It always makes my cheeks look defined and dewy in photographs.

Strong black clothing seems to be everywhere at the moment especially in eveningwear- match this with a set of statement lips that get you noticed – choose a creamy or satin finished lipstick in cherry red, fuschia or tangerine .. you never know they may look so good they may get you that coveted midnight new years eve kiss! Red – She Said lipstick by MAC is a total holiday dazzler.

If you’re out partying the night away; you want to insure your makeup stays on – so try using a good primer or base over moisturiser but underneath your foundation and/or makeup- this helps insure that your makeup lasts- Laura Mercier makeup primer feels great on the skin and comes in normal, hydrating for dry skin and oil free for oily skins. For longer lasting eyeshadow – try using Lemon Aid by Benefit – keeps eyeshadow on the lid and is fab for when applying loose eye shadow pigments to the lid as it really gets it to grip and stay put.

If you were lucky enough to get some new makeup for Christmas or you decide to go out and buy a new cosmetic for New Years Eve- make sure you have a little practice with it before the night- there is nothing more frustrating when you’re running late to go out trying to figure out how to use a new makeup item- you can make a total mess and will probably shove it in a drawer where unused makeup goes to die…. dont let that happen- just have a mini makeup dress rehersal before the night to insure you end up looking like the star that you are!
