New Year’s Eve Sparkle & Outfit

Scroll down to content

Sorry for the delay – I didn’t take any photos on New Year’s Eve (crazy, right?) so I had to recreate the look. The theme was…sparkle!

I’ll start with the clothing:

  • Short black metallic jumper from H&M
  • High waist super skinny black jeans from Dorothy Perkins
  • Black glitter skinny belt from Accessorize
  • Silver and gold long necklace worn doubled up from Oasis
  • Large dark cocktail ring from Monsoon
  • Clear cocktail ring from Dorothy Perkins
  • Betty Jackson Black platform ankle boots (see Outfits to Match the Face: December 2013 here)
  • Black square stud earrings

I went for all black so I could have some fun with my make-up.  As you know from my Red Lips post, I chose one of them and I will reveal it here.

First, here is my face without the glitter and glam:

I’m wearing:

  • YSL La Teint Touche Eclat foundation in 107 Beige
  • Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF12 in Golden 6
  • Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Golden under my eyes
  • Sleek Face Contour Kit in Medium 885
  • Kiko Infinity eyeshadow in 204 from my lids to my brows as a base
  • MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry
  • MAC matte lipstick in Ruby Woo
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to line the top lashline and flick out
  • Lancôme le Crayon Khol in 01 Noir on the waterline
  • HD Brows Palette in Foxy
  • Maybelline the Falsies Volum’ Express Flared mascara in Very Black on top and bottom lashes

I used:

  • EcoTools Flat Foundation brush to apply the YSL foundation
  • EcoTools powder brush to apply my Bobbi Brown foundation
  • Bobbi Brown Cream Blending brush to apply the concealer
  • Models Own angled blush brush to apply the light and dark colours in the Sleek palette to contour my face
  • Models Own blusher brush to blend the contour colours
  • The angled liner on my Bella Pierre dual brush to define my brows in Dark Brown from the HD Brows palette
  • MAC brush 239 to apply the Warm Brown colour from the HD Brows palette to the crease of my eyelids
  • Models Own shading brush to apply the Nude colour from the HD Brows palette under my brows to highlight
  • No7 eyeshadow and blending brush to blend the colour in the crease
  • No7 eyeshadow brush to apply the Kiko eyeshadow
  • MAC brush 209 to apply the Fluidline

Then I added

  • Bourjois Effet 3D Gloss in 18 Transparent using my fingers
  • The dark grey glitter from the MUA Luxe glitter palette in Diva using my Ruby & Millie angled eye brush (no longer available), all over the Fluidline

To look like this:

Unfortunately, although I really like this look, it was not successful! The lipstick did not like the gloss and it went all smudgy, even when I dabbed on the tiniest amount of gloss.  I had to do matte lips for the rest of the night. Worse, the glitter is not party proof.  The house party I went to was great and I love nothing more than to dance. I danced hard and my make-up failed – I ended up with glitter everywhere and looked awful!  I gave this glitter a last chance and it disappointed me.

I should have stopped at the first face as this would have been dance proof. Oh well, you live and learn!
