A NYE Party MakeUp Tutorial

One of my friends from high school is a make up artist so I asked her if she wanted to do a makeup tutorial for a New Year's Eve party look, and she did! Tess is a costumer (she works on movies, so cool!) and also has a personal style consulting business as well. She splits her time between working on in LA and with her consulting clients in our hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. She's an awesome and fun girl, so it was a blast having her do the look on me!

5. Apply two to three coats of MAC Pro Lash Mascara.

6. Go over top smudged lash line with MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (feel free to wing it slightly out!)

7. Highlight brow bone & inner eye corner with MAC Pigment in Naked.

8. Add NARS Mini Soft Touch Pencil in Ballets Russes in inner eye corner & pop a bit in the center of eyelid to help accentuate a bit of bling for the New Year.

10. Add Ardell Single Lashes in Medium Black by using tweezers & slightly dipping each lash into Duo Eyelash Adhesive in Black. Start with the outer corner & go 3/4 of the way into the lash line placing each lash as close as comfortable to your natural lash line.
