New Years Eve Makeup

New Year’s Eve is one of my favourite nights of the year because it’s the one night we can go all out with our makeup. I am typically a less is more kinda gal but on NYE more is more. I am very excited to share my New Years Eve Beauty Must Haves with you.

Let’s embrace sparkle:

Why not fully embrace all the glittery fun products  available to us to achieve dazzling makeup looks.

These products and tips will ensure you are the centre of attention. Let’s unleash that inner Beyonce ladies!

Ultra glowy skin

Use an illuminating primer – to achieve the most glow possible. I like to mix a pump of my illuminating primer into my foundation. This gives me an instant all over radiance and sets the tone for a sparkle filled New Year’s Eve Makeup.

Take it a step further by setting your face with a powder that has a glow to it rather than a matte option. Laura Mercier’s iconic setting powder comes in a glow option this season and I can not get enough of it. It’s also perfect for adding a bit of dazzle to the collar bone area and can even be used to give bare legs a shimmer.

Highlighters are all the rage right now and we can go all out with this trend on NYE. Thanks to Laura Mercier achieving Instagram worthy highlight is easy. Glossy cheekbones are what the doctor ordered and can be achieved by using the Laura Mercier Mood Lights Illuminating trio. Simply swipe it onto the highest points of your face: cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupids bow and you are selfie ready.
