Gold Glitter & Teal Makeup WITH VIDEO

TGIF Beauties!

Since it’s Friday and some of you are probably planning a fabulous night out, I thought I’d bring you a “going out” makeup look. This makeup is super -wearable but still has nighttime elements like glitter and smoke.  Ooh-la-la!

This is a great makeup look to try if you have a ton of bold, bright eyeshadow colors and have no idea how to use them. Don’t be afraid of color! Instead of smearing it all over, line your lower lid with it. You will get a pop of color without feeling like you went overboard. Balance everything out with a light lip and natural skin. I skipped lashes for this look, but if you’re feeling a little vixen, go for it. Lashes have a way of finishing the look, kind of like the frame around a masterpiece- it’s also the reason celebrities always look so put together on the red carpet.

New Year’s Eve Makeup: Sparkly Smoky Eyes

I hope everyone’s holiday season went well and you were all with your loved ones. This was our first “married” holiday season, so we really made an effort to be with both sides of the family. We went to Big Bear Lake with my folks and sister, then swung down to Orange County to be with my in laws. Busy busy busy!

I feel like everything’s been going by really fast since Christmas ended. Can you believe New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night?! If you are looking for makeup inspiration for the first night of 2013, look no further.
