Can you believe that 2014 is almost over? This year flew by, fast! In just a few short days, we will be bidding goodbye to 2014 and ringing in a bright New Year. My husband and I, wild party animals that we are, like to spend a quiet New Year's Eve together. Dinner, popcorn, a great movie or two, then grab the remote and flip through the TV channels, watching Kathy Griffin drive Anderson Cooper out of his skull and the ball drop in Times Square. Sometimes, we watch various objects drop as Midnight strikes across the country and toast one another at midnight, he with his Coke, I with my Crystal Light. Or... We're both flaked out, snoring by the time the New Year begins.
Told you. Wild party animals, we.
Whether you are going out for a night of hardcore partying, making the rounds with family and friends or spending the evening with that special someone, Mirabella has what you need to look and feel your beautiful best on New Year's Eve and well in to the New Year.
I favor a more neutral makeup look, most of the time. Now, neutral doesn't have to mean boring. I used products from the Mirabella Faerie Collection to give my New Year's Eve makeup look a touch of shimmer, a bit of glow.
Some of the beautiful products I used to create my look are the Swirling Pearl Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder, Myth Visionary Long Wear Eye Shadow, Luminosity Colour Luxe Lip Gloss and the Gossamer Colour Luxe Lip Gloss.
This is a typical evening look for me. Neutral, soft, with some shimmer on my eyes, lots of mascara, and a glow on my cheekbones.
On my eyes is the Myth Visionary Long Wear Eye Shadow along with other shadows to complete my eye look. on my cheekbones, to catch the light and give me a soft glow is the Swirling Pearl Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder. On my lips is Colour Luxe Lip Gloss in Gossamer, a soft, wearable pink with a beautiful shimmer.
If I want to punch it up a little, add a bit of drama and glamour, a quick lippie change takes my look from soft and gentle to classic evening.
All I did was apply a great red lippie then I topped it with Mirabella Colour Luxe Lip Gloss in Luminosity. This beautiful translucent gold shimmer gloss is the perfect way to add sparkle and gorgeous shine to a bright or bold lip colour.
My hairstyle is also easy, yet made special with a simple, sparkly touch. I used a one inch barrel curling iron to make large pipe curls all through my hair. After the curls cooled, I gently ran my fingers through my hair to break up the curls then gently brushed it to smooth. I gathered the top portion into a half-up, gave it a little twist in the back, letting the tail curl around then anchored it with a sparkly hair pin. A little hairspray to keep things in place and done. Kind of quiet and ladylike in the front...
Party in the back. #sorrynotsorry One of these days, I am going to solve my crazy lighting issues and maybe my photographs will be a bit more consistent!
My earrings are part of the Stargirl Ear Adornment Set from Bauble Bar.
