Happy 2010!!!

Many of you have been wondering what I used for New Year's, and here it is!!!  I was originally going to do a silver and black combo, but in browsing through YouTube and the such for inspiration, I felt that look was being worn out.  So, I decided to modify my original idea by using a shimmery pink instead of silver.  Let me know what you think!  :)

On my eyes:
1.  A Hi-Fi Cosmetics not-yet-released pink/green color shifting shade on the inner corners and very lightly as highlight.
2.  "Miracle Mile" from the 2010 Collection all over the lid from lashline to crease.
3.  "Dirty Word Witchcraft" from the 2010 Collection on outer corner and in crease.
4.  Paparazzi Flash Powder in "Sexy Cupid" on top of "Miracle Mile" eyeshadow.
5.  A not-yet-released black-based Paparazzi Flash Powder on top of "Dirty Word Witchcraft".  Blended with "Sexy Cupid" by lightly patting with finger.
6.  Paparazzi Flash Powder in "Forget My Name" mixed with mixing medium and applied to lower lashline.
7.  Hard Candy Walk the Line liquid liner in "Asphalt" on upper lashline.
8.  Ardell demi wispies lashes.

Aron and I right after we arrived...  Too bad you can't really see my eye makeup well in this pic...but I was also wearing NYX blush in "Terracotta" along with Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder in "Rose Gold".  On my lips was Soap & Glory's Sexy Motherpucker lipgloss in...well, it was the plum shade (can't remember the exact name...it was a long night).  LOL.  I layered one of the super shimmery Tarte holiday glosses on top.  (Is anyone else annoyed by the fact that they don't have names?  The last Tarte lipgloss set I bought didn't have names on any of them, either.)

A great number of alcoholic beverages later.......  I look like a total goofball.  LOL.

Here's me in my ORIGINAL application of makeup (with the exception of lipgloss) back at home 6 HOURS LATER!!!  I was actually surprised at how well it all stayed on...especially after the amount of alcohol I drank and the numerous drunken NYE makeout sessions between the hubby and I...  LOL!!!  TMI, I know.  :)  But yeah...this stuff has SUPER staying power when applied over LASplash Splashproof Sealer!!!  I swear by that stuff when I use glitter...it's a really sticky waterproof base that will hold eyeshadow, sparklies, the works!!!    I got it at Ulta, but I honestly can't remember how much I paid for it.

Both eyes...blurred to see the effect of the holo glitter.  By the way, this pic was also taken AFTER the party, around 1:00 AM.

Anyway...let me know what you think!!!  :)  Did any of you use Hi-Fi Cosmetics for your NYE look?  If you did a holiday look (even if it wasn't with Hi-Fi) and have photos of it, post the link in the comments section so we all can see what you did!

I didn't take any photos last night, but I did a simple look with War Child on the whole lid, Tell Me Lies on the Inside, and MAC BlackTrack Fluidline thickly on the lashline with UD's Half Baked glitter liner over it.

Your eyes look FANTASTIC! I used Live Large in my look :)

@Kim Wow! That sounds really pretty! I was wearing Sephora by OPI nail polish in "Worth My Weight", and I almost wore "War Child" to match it...but I really wanted to wear some of the New Year's colors. :)

@Phyrra Thanks!!! I saw yours (got distracted before I got a chance to comment), and I LOVE it!!! :)

Wow, looks gorgeous! When can we buy those beauties? :D

Here is a link to my NYE looks with HiFi cosmetics:


I used Visions of Sugarplums, Tainted love, Universe of Fear, Beutiful & Paparazzi flash powder in Conspiracy <3

Lisa Kate said...

Pretty! I love those flash powders! I don't care for silver/black anymore either...totally over used.

A bit shocking, but I didn't wear ANY makeup on NYE or New Years Day! We just lazed around the house, it was actually pretty awesome XD

BLIX said...

You look beautiful! Looks like you had a great time too. I wore a funny NYE headband as well. :-)
This is the look I wore on NYE:

Veronica said...

@Nea All the colors are available right now except for one eyeshadow (highlight and inner corner) and the darker glitter. :) I love your NYE look!!!

@Lisa Kate Sounds like you had a nice, relaxing NYE. My husband worked all day and got home late, so we ended up having to rush out the door. It was stressful.

@BLIX I LOVE your glittery eyes!!! :)

Gorgeous! It looks like you lived it up for New Year's. Totally the right way to do it, and looking so good, too!

Pixie said...

That is a hot eye look! Works wonderfully with your eyecolor.
