My vision for my NYE 2018 look: Very dependent on what dress I wore! I chose this navy blue dress from Tobi (trendy clothes btw, would recommend, although sizing is a little weird.. for reference I’m an XS or S depending on the item..). Since navy blue is dark and cool-toned, I decided to do a cool-toned makeup look to match. So, I avoided yellow/gold/peach colors and the warmest I went for was a bronze (lip/bronzer). For hair, frankly I was crunched for time and didn’t have time to curl my hair, so I decided to leave it straight BUT half up + hairspray-ed to give it some volume. Since I chose some bronze colors, I went for rose gold jewelry – both my earrings and necklace (from Korea, don’t remember any brands) are rose gold. Overall, I wanted a sleek and cool look to step into 2018.
Key products/techniques for this look:
Primer: TheFaceShop Air Cotton Makeup Base in 02 lavender – this hue brightens your whole face. I also have dry skin so the more layers, the better (usually)
Bronzer: Physician Formula Glow Booster in medium-dark – they didn’t have light so I got this because the color seemed fine. It’s fine haha. Some shimmer that might be too much for the daily~ but pretty on point for NYE 🙂
Highlighter: Becca champagne pop, a cult fave. Not too gold so perf for this color scheme
Blush: Sephora Winter Flush palette, shades 1/2 (the top right hand corner shade). It’s a dark pink that shows up more light pink when applied. Cool-toned (versus peach shades for example)
Lip: Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics in Molten Bronze. This was less metallic than I thought. It’s metallic when light reflects off it. So, to give it extra oomph (whatever that means), I topped my lip with Colourpop Crystal Lip Balm in Rose Quartz. I think the shade of the crystal balm isn’t important, if you’re thinking of getting it. All it did was add some iridescence to the lips. Pretty moisturizing, too.
Eyeshadow: white/bronze/taupe colors from Colourpop’s Golden State of Mind palette & dark brown cool-toned color called “Beyond Bronze” (just looked up the color; of course that’s the name haha) from Tarte’s miracles of the Amazon palette. Darker near the eye on the top eyelid, whiter towards the eyebrow. Just use any glittery/shimmery palette with similar colors!
