New Years Glam!

It’s almost new years eve, what’re you all gonna do to celebrate?!
Well, for today’s tutorial, I’ll be doing a new years glam look, featuring my one and only sister in law Ada Chung.
For this look, I’ll be demonstrating two different techniques to create the look.  Ada will be wearing the toned down version of the look, (suitable for those who want their make up to look less exaggerated);  and I will be wearing the full on version that will give you all the drama you need for the night!

First and foremost, prep and prime your face as always.

Eyes:
Using a synthetic brush, dab a pea size of silver gel/cream eye shadow and mix it with some white shimmery pigment shadow like so:


Mixing the pigment powder with the cream shadow will give you more shimmer without using glitter, as glitter can sometimes be really messy! 


On Ada: apply the well mixed cream shadow all over your lids, just up to the hollows of your eyes.  The shape of the eye shadow should follow the natural shape of your eyes, in Ada’s case, a circular shape.  Make sure you apply it on the inner corner of your eyes as well.

On me: apply the well mixed cream shadow all over lids, up to the hollows of the eyes and taper it to the outer corner of your eyes, creating a V shape.


On Ada: Using a dark forest green eye shadow, apply this on the crease line, and blend well.

On me: Using a dark forest green eye shadow, apply this on the crease line and taper it out to the outer V following the silver cream shadow.  Use a black pencil eyeliner, trace the outer V of your eyes.  This will create a template for you when you apply the black eye shadow later on.


On Ada: Using a black eye shadow, apply just a tad bit, close to your upper lash line, and bring it out to the outer corner of your eyes, tracing along the hollows of your eyes, (remember to blend well and that a little bit is enough as you don’t want an over powering look).

On me: Using a black eye shadow, apply it close to your lash line and wing it out to where you’ve traced the outer V with the black eye liner.  Blend well around the hollows of your eyes, make sure you don’t cover the forest green with the black. There should be a gradient of colours.


On Ada: Using the same dark forest green eye shadow, line the bottom of your eyes half way.  Line the rest of your eyes with a white shimmering pigment powder to open up the eyes.
Use a black eye liner and tight line the top and bottom lash line.
Apply a pair of natural false lashes to bring out your eyes even more.
Finish off the look by filling in your eyebrows and applying a nude lipstick so that you keep the focus on the eyes.
Apply blush and an illuminator on your cheek bones and the bridge of your nose to create that radiant effect.

On me: Apply the dark forest green eye shadow on the lower lash line, just half way and finish the rest of the liner with a white shimmering pigment powder.
Using a black pencil eyeliner, tight line the top and bottom of your lash line, with the bottom going all the way into the tear ducts, this will create a more intense look.
Apply a pair of thick false lashes to give your eyes more drama.
Finish off by filling in your eye brows, blush and apply a nude lipstick on your lips.
Don’t forget to highlight your cheek bones and nose bridge!

And your look is complete :)


In the picture above, you can see the difference in technique for applying eye shadow and how it affects the entire look.

Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial, and have a safe and fun new years eve !
