New Years Eve Makeup And Resolutions

Hey everyone! I'm so sorry for being gone for a while, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! It was a great one for sure. Santa Claus brought me the new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette in my stocking, it is gorgeous! I know it was a really popular gift this year(if you're a cosmetic junkie like myself!) so today I want to share a New Years Eve look with you all.

Lets get started!

List of products used:
-Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette(Nooner, Buzz, Liar, Strange, and Blackheart)
-MAC 224 Blending Brush(here's an alternate)
-Sigma E55 Shading Brush
-Sigma E30 Pencil Brush
-Sigma E25 Blending Brush
-Thin Angled Brush(here's an alternate)
-Sigma E05 Liner Brush
-MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
-Benefit They're Real Mascara
-MAC Subculture Lip Liner
-MAC Resort Life Lip Gloss

Let's get started!

Apply the shade Nooner with a fluffy blending brush to the crease blending upward towards the brow bone.

Next pack on the shade Buzz with a Sigma E55 shading brush all over the lid.

Using a Sigma E30 pencil brush, apply Strange to the inner corner of the eye as well as the brow bone for highlight.

Take the shade Liar and a Sigma E25 blending brush and blend it in the crease towards the inner corner.

With that same blending brush, take some Blackheart and dab it in the outer part of the crease, then blend it well! This will give the eye more definition.

Now with a thin angled brush, use the shade Liar again to line the lower lash line.

With the same thin angled brush, use Blackheart and stamp it onto the outer third of the lower lash line.

Time for eyeliner and mascara! I used MAC Blacktrack Fluidline with a Sigma E05 liner brush and Benefit They're Real Mascara. You can use what ever kind of black eyeliner and mascara you prefer. I highly recommend using a pair of false lashes with this look, they will help your eyes pop even more!

*I definitely forgot to show what I used on my face, sorry! I just used some NARS Laguna bronzer on my cheeks for some color, no other blush. It's safe to assume if I ever forget to mention what I used on my face it's usually NARS Laguna 99% of the time! 

Use which ever light pink lipstick or lip gloss that you love for this look. I used MAC Subculture lip liner to define my lips and topped it off with MAC Resort Life lip gloss. It's super sparkly, perfect for New Years Eve! 

That's the finished look! What do you think? 

Are you guys making any resolutions this year? Share em with me please! This year I want to learn some yoga to help my (non existent)flexibility. I already meditate a little bit so I figure yoga would be a nice compliment to that. I want to learn French but I'm not sure I will have time to, so I want to make it a goal to learn at least 50 French words this year; it's just such a lovely language and I dream about going to Paris one day. Something else I'm going to try my hardest to do is to get at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise in 5 days a week. I already do this about 3-4 times a week but I need to challenge myself more; especially since I have a huge goal I'd like to accomplish by my birthday in July(not quite sharing what that is yet!). OH and my *biggest* resolution is to post here at least 3 times a week, the bare minimum 2 times a week. No more slacking! I want this blog to be a huge part of my life and I would love for you all to come on this journey with me. So that being said, it would be so helpful and appreciated if you could leave me suggestions in the comments below on what you'd like to see on here! More makeup tutorials? Recipes? Personal stuff? Please let me know!

As always I am so grateful that you took the time out of your day to read my blog. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I wish you all a happy, healthy, and  abundant new year from the bottom of my heart!

xo, Michelle
