Tutorial: ..And a Sparkling new year!

Since I missed chrismast makeup tutorial, I'm giving you a New Year's tutorial instead!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX Jumbo pencil Milk
NYX Loose Pearl White Pearl
NYX Loose Pearl Black Pearl
Gosh effect powder Holographic Silver (Discoball from NYX glitters)
NYX Candy Glitter Liner Disco Queen
NYX eyeliner Black
Dior Blackout mascara

Start with priming your eye with your favourite eyeprimer:

Then create light, a bit sticky base with NYX jumbo pencil Milk:

Take NYX White Pearl and apply it to the lid, from inner corner towards middle of the lid. I used Sigma's E50 travel brush:

Then take your crease brush ( I used Sigma's travel E45), and apply Black Pearl to crease:

And to outer V:

And blend a bit too:

Then take small brush ( mine is Sigma's travel E20), and add a hint of Black Pearl on the lower lashline:

Then take black liner (you can use liquid, gel or pencil, I decided to use pencil this time), and line your upper lashline:

I also lined my upper waterline:

Then messy part.
Add NYX Glitter liner Disco Queen to lid, don't even try to make it even:

Use your finger to pat it even:

Then take holographic gliltter, and apply it over the still wet liner (I used  Sigma's old SS224 brush ):

Finally add mascara, and some silver to your lower waterline, and the look is done!

Also, I reviewed and swatched Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl luminizer at MakeupGeek:


  1. Oh I have everything for this look! I'm going to try it for New years eve :D

  2. as ever, excellent! I did an ice queen look ( and used a lot of holographic glitter too, but it was quite tricky to do.. I defo shall be trying using a glitter liner next time to help it stick!!
