Pretty New Year! Bold lips & Neutral eyes

Pretty New Year to all of you!

To start off the year (and 2015’s very 1st weekend) I chose to wear a bold lip and nude eyes. I met up with a few friends and went to the Foodhallen, a super duper food court located in Amsterdam West. Food, Friends & Fun ūüôā

I posted this picture on my Instagram:

and as promised you can find the list of products below. Of course, most of the products are from MAC, unless specified.

‚óŹ FACE: Fix+, @benefitcosmetics Porefessional (on my T-zone), mixed @covergirl Outlast Stay Fabolous 3 in 1 foundation in nr. 857 (Golden Tan) and @lorealparisfr @lorealparisusa True Match foundation in W6, NW30 + NC35 concealer, NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat¬†powder foundation, Kiko Perfect Glow Compact Foundation in nr. 12, Give me sun! on the cheeks.

‚óŹ EYES: Soft Brown (above the crease), Saddle (crease), Swiss Chocolate¬†(outer V), @rimmellondonuk Lash Accelerator mascara on top and bottom lashes, @maybelline Go! Colossal Extreme mascara on the top lashes (2X).¬†I used the same eyeshadow colors to define the lower lashes.

And, of course, the most important part of this look: I used MAC’s lip pencil in the color Vino and filled in the lips, then finished them up with¬†Smoked Purple.

I defined my eyebrows with Anastasia Beverly Hills diprow pomade in Dark Brown. A lot of people ask me how I do my eyebrows, for those who know me I do not have many…anymore ūüė¶ BUT I found a way to bring them back to life. I actually posted a pictorial about it, here is the link:¬†https://nynamakeup.wordpress.com/2014/03/02/eyebrow-power-how-i-perfect-my-almost-non-existent-brows/

 

Here is my final look, with a tiny bit of editing due to the horrible lights:

Even if I L-O-V-E my eyeshadows and I absolutely adore wearing heavy eye make-up, this kind of make-up is so much easier to do and can easily be adapted to anybody. If you do not feel like wearing such a dark lip color, go for a red. If you are still scared of bright colors, you can opt for a nude/pink/mauve lipstick.

Simplicity is your best friend ūüôā
