    This look is perfect for either New Year’s Eve or other festivities that you might have coming up. I will talk you through how to recreate this look step by step, explaining what products I used and how I used them!

    Step 1

    First of all, we need to create a good base for the makeup that we are going to use. So, after applying my daily moisturizer, I applied the Max Factor Facefinity All Day primer all over my face. This primer will make your makeup last all night long.

    Step 2

    Next up, foundation! My personal favorite at the moment is the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions foundation. I have this in the shade 02 ‘Fresh Ivory,’ but since this is a bit too dark for me, I mixed it with the MAC Studio Face and Body foundation in the white shade. Using the Primark stippling brush, I applied and blended this combination of foundations.

    Step 3

    Because I wanted the foundation to set for a moment, I moved on to the eyebrows. I filled them in using the Beauty UK High Brow All in One Brow Definition kit. With the Real Techniques Brow brush, I made sure my eyebrows were as even as possible.

    Step 4

    It is now time to work on the eyes! But just like the rest of the face, the eyes need some priming. For that I used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease eye shadow primer.

    Step 5

    For my eye shadows, I used the Makeup Revolution ‘I Heart Chocolate’ palette. I started by blending a few of the gold shades together and applying these all over my lids. Then, with a dark brown shade, I created some depth, putting this on the outer corner of my eye and a little bit higher into the crease. Make sure you blend everything together so there are no harsh lines! I also put the matte highlighting shade onto my brow bone and the shimmery highlighting shade on the inner corners of my eyes.

    Step 6

    After curling my eyelashes, I applied a few coats of the L’Oréal False Lash Wings waterproof mascara, and then I also applied the Ardell Natural Wispies false lashes to make my lashes look even longer and fuller.

    Step 7

    The eyes are almost done! All that’s left is some eyeliner. I used the Eyeko Black Magic eyeliner for a thin line right above my lash line, and then I used the Sephora Long Lasting Kohl pencil in the shade 07 ‘Infinite Beige’ on my waterline to brighten my eyes a little bit.

    Step 8

    Now that the eyes are done, we can go back to the face. First off, some concealer is needed. I used the MAC Pro Longwear concealer in the shade NC15 wherever I felt like I needed it, blending it out with my foundation brush.

    Step 9

    To make sure that all of this makeup was long-lasting, I used the Clinique Stay Matte Sheer pressed powder in the lightest shade.

    Step 10

    All that’s left are just a few final touches, like some bronzer and highlighter! With the Real Techniques Multi Task brush I applied the Beebee bronzer in the shade 9 ‘Natural Tan’ to give my face a bit of color. After that, I used the Real Techniques Contour brush to apply the MUA Undress Your Skin shimmer highlighter in ‘Pink Shimmer’ on the cheekbones for that festive glow.

    Step 11

    Last but not least: the red lip. I used the LookX lip & blush stick in the shade ‘Red Carpet.’ I also set my makeup with a few sprays of the MAC Fix+ but of course that is totally optional!

    So this was the entire process I went through to achieve this festive look. I hope you like this look and maybe even try it out yourself. Good luck!
