Eeeeeek - how is Christmas over so quickly? And it NYE rapidly approaching, its time, if you haven't done so already to start thinking about your look to see out 2014. Before Christmas I shared with you a Christmas makeup look from No 7 (click here) so here is the next look in the mini-series.
Named by No 7 as the Day to Night Chic, it uses a classic combination of a flawless base, gold eyes, red lips and lashings of black mascara and eye liner. I've listed all the products at the end of the post, below the photos.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I am loving the Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation which is really breathable whilst still giving a decent amount of coverage. I'm using it more as a daily foundation and will probably crank it up a notch for NYE, but if you are normally a bare-face gal, this would be part-perfect.
To add warmth to your complexion add No7 Natural Blush Cream in Maple Silk to the apples and cheek bones. But as with all cream blushes, they do work best built up, so start off with on a little of the product. Some people find applying with fingers is easy, but I find using a brush much easier (if fact I tend to use Real Techniques Stippling Brush - £11.99 - for cream blushes - even though thats not necessarily what they were designed for!)
On NYE you need some sparkle which comes from the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter used on tops of cheek bones and Stay Perfect Shade And Define in Glistening Ray over the eye lids.
To intensify the eyes use Stay Precise Liquid Eye Liner to frame and even add a party flick if you are feeling steady handed! Then finish with layers of Lash Impact Mascara which is one (many!) of my fav No 7 mascaras.
A red lip is essential for NYE in my opinion, but the High Shine Lip Crayon in Statement is really easy to wear due to its glossy consistency. You don't get any harsh lines that you need to get perfect and is easy for no mirror top ups.
Happy NYE prepping!
