New Year's Eve Makeup - Metallic Lips & Sparkly Eyes

Do you need a fun and festive look for this New Year's Eve? I know I did!

As I was perusing Walgreens last week looking for anything new and interesting; a display of Milani lipstick caught my eye. I know, lipstick! Who'da thunk it? If you don't know about my lipstick woes, read more here.

I've seen these metallic lipsticks online and had wondered about them, so when they were staring me down in the store I knew I had to try one. So I grabbed the Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme in the color 04 Cinematic Kiss. A really pretty magenta pink color, that has warm undertones.

To compliment the sheen in the lipstick, I wanted very glowy but natural skin. I used a luminous tinted moisturizer that I've been testing from Laura Mercier with a glowy finishing powder from my NYX Contour palette. I finished with my shimmery Milani blush and Physician's Formula highlighter.

And now the lipstick, I have to say, it's beautiful! I never would've thought a metallic would grab my attention, but here we are and I'm in love. I can't believe what depth and extra punch it adds to this makeup.

To go with such a bold lipstick I wanted to do a more simple eye. Plus a little sparkle, because it's New Year's Eve and why the hell not?! I stuck with a taupe eyeshadow in the crease, some sparkle on the lid, and a bold winged liner to bring out my eyes.

I think this look would look great with your party attire and would wear well throughout a night of dancing & drinks or board games & family... whatever you're doing this New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year to you all - I hope 2017 brings wonderful things!
