Today we celebrate the last day of the year. The last day of 2016 and all the good things it has brought to us. We make our new year’s resolutions for 2017, but before we get started on them, we party one last time.
We eat too much, we drink too much, but while doing so, we make sure we look damn fine!
So for tonight, I created a make-up look using L’Oréal products.
Before I start explaining the steps, I’ll list the products I’ve used:
- Eyeshadow – L’Oréal, La Palette Nude
- Brows – L’Oréal Brow Artist
- Lips – L’Oréal Color Riche, La Palette
- Lashes – Max Factor, Masterpiece Max
- Eyeliner – Victoria Secret, liquid liner
Alright, let’s get started, but be kind, it’s my first make-up look on the blog ;).
I started off by putting the darkest color on the outside of my eyelid, and the lightest one on the inside.
I repeated these steps on my lower eyelid, using an angled brush. Light on the inside, dark on the outside. I continued the line upward creating an eyeliner effect from your lower lashline
Next, I added my liquid eyeliner. I created my ‘wing’ parallel with the line from the lower lashes.
When you are pleased with the result, add mascara!
I’ve been using the same mascara for a long time now, the Masterpiece Max by Max Factor. For me it works best for my lashes.
You could also go for false lashes, but since I’m a small town girl, that would be too much ;).
TIP: When I feel like my mascara bottle is almost empty and I buy a new one, I don’t throw away the other bottle just yet. I use it to apply mascara on my lower lashes, it still contains just enough product to put on my lower lashes, because I find that the new bottle sometimes gives of too much product, wish is good on the upper lashes but can cause clumps on the lower lashes.
We’re almost there! I already have rather dark eyebrows but since the current rage is the darker the better, I don’t mind making them a little darker as well, and evening them out.
I must say I’m really pleased with the L’Oréal brow kit and the brush that was added.
Et voila! This is the finished look. Red lips to give some extra va va voom and you’re ready to conquer the night!
That might even be one of my wishes for the new year, that every woman finds the confidence to wear bright lipstick. It’s just so much fun!
Hope you all have a blast tonight!
See you next year!
Lots of love,
