Excuse the awkward looking face, I wanted to show the Givenchy colour kajal eyeliner up close because it's so so gorgeous and you cannot really see it in the first photo. It's so difficult to capture as I am currently without a tri-pod, but hey ho you get the jist. This is a look I put together as something I would wear on New Year's Eve. I don't actually have plans this year as I am not too fussed about New Year, I think me and my Mama might go for a few drinks and then munch away at a platter of scrumptious delights in front of a DVD, which sounds more like my kind of fun. I am in love with Givenchy make-up at the moment, the Prism Quatuor eyeshadow quads are stunning, and this one is ideal for the party season; super glittery, lovely shades. They are actually darker than I expected, but after priming my lids with MAC's Bare Study I used the silver on the base, with the purple in my crease and a light dusting of the pink on the outer corners, all finished off with violet eyeliner on my bottom lash line. My eyes are very deep set so I struggle with eyeshadow, however I am trying to get back into it and might even treat myself to the cult classic Naked palette soon. I added a bit of Rodial's Eye Glow to my inner corners, which I think really makes the eyes pop and look more awake - what a saviour for tired eyes like mine! If I were to go out, I would probably add on some falsies to this look, but I rarely can be bothered with those, even if my eyelashes are awfully non-existent. No New Year party look is complete without a bold red lip, oh yes what a cliche? I went for the Topshop lip bullet in Joyride, which is super creamy yet lasts a pretty long time. I have been trying out this new NARS foundation that my friend gave me after not getting on with it, and I can't say I am the biggest fan. I adore Sheer Glow, but this just seems a bit too drying for my dehydrated skin. I do like the coverage of it though, so I guess I shall persevere for a wee bit. I also really need to sort my eyebrows out, they don't match and annoy me. What products will you reach for this New Year?
