New Year’s Eve is the only night of the year that a 28 year old can get away with wearing glitter eye makeup and you get bet I’m going to take full advantage of this! Ever year I like to switch up my NYE look, but one common factor is that I always include a touch (or a little more than a touch) of glitter. This year I decided to go with a smoky gray eye paired with my signature winged eyeliner, but sparkled it up by lining my lower lashes with loose glitter. These photos don’t do this glitter eye makeup justice, but I had to post them anyway because I love the way that this shiny pink lip looks paired with it!
Funny story about the day I shot these photos. I did my makeup and took these pictures right before I went to the dentist and let’s just say the hygienist was a little distracted during my cleaning. She couldn’t stop talking about how much she loved it, but I just can’t believe I didn’t think to wash it off before I left the house. To say that I was a little too “done up” for a Thursday afternoon is an understatement.
Still can’t figure out what to wear on New Year’s Eve? Check out What to Wear on New Year’s Eve & 6 New Year’s Eve Outfits for inspiration!
