FOTD: New Year's Eve Makeup

We spent New Year's Eve at a friend's pub having some not-so-quiet drinks, and whilst it was definitely a big night, it wasn't a particularly dressy one.  I decided to go with simple but sparkly makeup - and I couldn't resist the lure of false lashes.

Excuse the slightly terrible lighting, trying to take photos after dark in winter is bloody impossible.

These lashes are Shu Uemura Soft Cross False Eyelashes, and I've worn them many, many times.  They're soft and full and give a great voluminous look which isn't too OMGLASHES.  

I used one of my favourite glitter products on my lids - Makeup Forever Glitter in 13 Silver Multicoloured - which is a gloriously holographic loose glitter.  I wore it last New Year's Eve.  I wear it to pretty much every party I go to.

Anyway, here's the lowdown on all the products I used...

Guerlain Meteorites in Mythic 01

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Smoked Palette* (specifically Mushroom eyeshadow and Perversion eyeliner)
Makeup Forever Glitter in 13 Silver Multicoloured
Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara
Shu Uemura Soft Cross False Eyelashes 

Benefit Sugarbomb lipgloss*

  1. I love the lashes and the lips!

  2. I can't get over how beautiful your hair looks! You're inspiring me to cut a fair few inches off mine.
    And I need those eyelashes.

  3. Thanks ladies! Chopping of my hair was such a good move - it's so much healthier!
