NYE Look!

Can you believe its almost another new year? How will you be celebrating; Fireworks with a few friends? A big party celebration? However you're going to be spending it, we think today's look will be just perfect - its sparkly and fun and so easy to do!

After applying some glow to the face (we love the Gerard Cosmetics BB+ Illumination Creme), we are going to apply our foundation. Using our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki we are buffing and blending some Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation onto the face and blending down the neck.

We then applied some concealer to the underneath of the eyes and on any problem areas. We used our Bella&Bear Ocelot Large Concealer brush to blend the foundation outwards for a seamless finish.

To follow, we set the concealer with a transluscent powder. You could dust over the whole face if you're going for a matte finish. We used our Bella&Bear Leopard brush and the Essence All About Matte powder - this is a fantastic powder at a steal price!

Let's work on the eyes. This is going to be a bold look for a special occasion.

We started by priming the eyes with our Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer. This will keep our eyeshadow in place for hours and will also make the colours more intense.

We then took a matte black eyeshadow and our gorgeous Bella&Bear Black Footed Cat brush and we created a 'wing' on the outer corner of the eye, and bought the shadow along the lower lashline and along the crease of the eyelid to create a softened cut crease. This brush is great as it is angled so you can be really precise with your shadow designs.

We then took our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush and gently blended out the black shadow to give it a less harsh line.

Next, we took our Bella&Bear Pampas Cat brush and applied a golden shimmer shadow to the lid of the eye and into the inner corner. We love the ChiChi Spices Palette for this as it has a great selection of shimmery shades.

If you are going to a big party, or if you want the look to be a bit more special, you could also add some gold glitter here - but please make sure you select a glitter which is safe for use on skin.

To give the eye a beautiful shape we are taking a black liner and our brand new Bella&Bear Serval Angled Liner brush and we are creating an extended wing along the upper lashline. This brush works with gels, liquids, creams - anything, so choose your favourite liner and get creative!

After applying a thin coat of the TooFaced Better Than Sex Mascara we went in with a pair of dramatic falsies. We chose the Eylure Exaggerate #141 and we applied them as close to the lashline as possible using our Bella&Bear Angled Tweezers. You could then apply a little more eyeliner along the strip of the lashes to blend them in with your natural lashline.

Now, to give the lashes time to set, we are going to add some shape to the face. Taking our brand new Bella&Bear Bobcat Angled Blush brush and a matte bronzer (we love Hoola by Benefit) we are dusting the hollows of the cheeks, the temples and down the sides of the nose. This will give the face a beautiful structure and some dazzling definition.

Lets go back and frame those eyes. Taking our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush, we are using the spoolie to brush through the brow hair, forming it to the desired shape. Then, using the brush end and some Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade we are filling in the brows and creating a more defined shape. You can then go back in and brush through the brows to disperse any excess product.

Don't forget to highlight! We're using our Bella&Bear Cheetah Duo Fiber powder brush and the I Heart Makeup Blushing Heart in 'Hot Summer of Love' and we are dusting the cheekbones, the cupids bow, the tip of the nose and the brow bones with it. This will give the face some serious glow and light.

To finish we're applying a pink-nude lip. We want the eyes to be the feature for this look so we're opting for a nude lipstick - we used 'Chauffer' by Makeup Revolution and we used our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip brush to apply it on point! 

As a finishing touch, we spritzed the face with some Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. This spray keeps the makeup in place all night and day and it also gives a gorgeous dewy finish to the look!
