We’re staying in, so it’ll likely be nothing. I take my makeup no later than 8 or 9, unless I get in later (which is *extremely* rare), so I’ll pretty much just be wearing my nighttime moisturizer & eye cream. Perhaps I’ll do something wild with nail polish, LOL.

I was just wondering about that today. We’re staying in also (maybe go watch some fireworks downtown Atlanta, but I would still like to look more glamorous than usually :). Hoping to get inspired before NY’E.

I have no firm plans but if I do go out it will be something sparkly, because why not? If I stay in, it’s Nars tinted moisturizer and some lip gloss…..

I’ll be doing a smoky eye using emerald as the focus. I’m probably going to use the LORAC 3D Liquid Lustre in Diamond on the inner corner, and I think I will be using UD’s Loaded as the main lid color with probably UD’s Clinic, MAC Emerald Green Pigment then MAC Femme Noir and a black along the lashline, outer V, and crease. I have to wear lashes with any kind of dark eye look, so I’m probably just going to wear demi-wispies since they are one of my favorites. I haven’t really thought out the rest of the makeup too much, but I’ll probably contour and highlight on the more intense side and use a nude blush and lip to finish it all off.

I hope everyone has a safe, but very happy NYE!

I want to go Hollywood 40’s style – nice black eyeliner with a bit of flick, brown crease, rosy cheeks and red lips – this time I will try them with a coral/golden lipstick layered on top. The look never fails!

I’m staying in, but I will probably wear Mac Stylishly Merry on my eyes.. but sure what else, though. Nothing too fancy since I’m not doing much.

We’re celebrating at home with a friend who is coming to stay, so anything goes. I’ll probably use either the Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty palette or Bare Minerals The Star Treatment palette for my eyes, with black liner (including on my water lines), put on a bright red lip (Clarins Jolie Rouge in Grenadine) and break out my Guerlain Cruel Gardenia highlighter to pretty up the whole final effect.

I’m doing a look using bareminerlas the star treatment palette! that and cleopatra in nyc by lippmann on my nails!

I’ll be working swing shift and going to a party after so I’m doing a work friendly makeup look then add some touches when I get off work for a night look.

Face
MAC Natural Radiance Primer
NARS Sheer Glow
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium Deep as bronzer
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter

Eyes (day)
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Benefit Creaseless eyeshadow or MAC paint pot in Bare Study
MAC Soft Brown e/s in crease
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill waterproof mascara
(night)
Bare Minerals Scenic Route duo (green on lid, pale gold on inner corner and highlight)
NARS eye liner on inner and lower rims and smudged out for a smoky look.

Lips
MAC Jubilee (day)
MAC Rebel (night)

It depends on whether or not we do anything. If we stay in, not a stitch. If we go out, I’m wearing a purple dress. I’ll do a purple and bronze look that I’ve done before. Here’s what I’ll use:

Eyes: UD Half baked over lid, Benefit High Brow Glow under brow bone and inner corner of eyes, MUFE #160 (a dark purple) in crease and underneath eyes. I’m going to rim my eyes with UD liner in Perversion. Some dramatic mascara, which probably will involve layering mascaras.

Face: MUFE HD primer and foundation, Coty Airspun powder, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronzer for highlighting, Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Deep for contouring

Cheeks: Nars Irresistiblement Bronzer as blush

Lips: Estee Lauder Tiger Eye lipstick topped by Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Gloss in Beach

I’m gonna keep it pretty basic since we’re traveling that day, stopping for a bit, then traveling the next day. Probably nothing sparkly cuz I don’t want to deal with migrating glitter. Just a lightly smoked eye and a deep red lip.

Depending on what the weather does, I may or may not go out. Sometimes it’s easier to stay at home and leave the drunks on the road to themselves. I’m pretty close to downtown so depending on the night sky I MIGHT be able to see the fireworks. I can defo hear them and they drive my four legged children bonkers. LOL!

I have not put a lot of thought into my make-up. I tend to plan stuff out and totally change it. It’s easier for me to wait to the last minute and go with what ever happens to pop out of my make-up kit. If I go out something like: Lips: muted deep red. Eyes: silver/grey/shimmer black smoked eye with faux glitter/rhinestone lashes. Face: Normal face routine but with a stronger deep pink blush and huge hair (keeps my ears warm).

If I stay home: Lip balm, hair mask, thermal pjs, hunting socks and Ahava foot cream and fluffy houseshoes.

My nails I am currently working on: 2 coats of Sephora By OPI in 212 -Sephora and 2 coats of Nicole By OPI in NI K29 – Kardashing Through The Snow. I MIGHT add a couple coats of Sephora By OPI in It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat … I don’t want to undue the blingy-ness of Kardashing Through The Snow though.

I hope everyone has a safe, fun and very happy NYE.
Wishing everyone a new year of health, wealth, happiness and luck. Happy 2013!

Going out to fun, semi-casual Irish pub in Toronto, so I’m still dressing things up but nothing too crazy! I just got my OCC Super NSFW Lip Tar in the mail, so I’m gonna give that a try with a neutral eye! Likely using either my Naked palette or my new Naked Basics palette.

Sounds like a great time to fool around with makeup to me! I hope you find something to do to take your mind off the loneliness πŸ™‚

Oh Sara, if I was single, I’d go out and party! I am married and hubby has to work on New Year’s Day so we won’t be celebrating (perhaps we’ll celebrate at 7:00 pm because he has to leave the house at 5:00 am), but you really should get together with a friend or even go by yourself out to some local pub and mingle, and wear lots of sparkly eye shadow πŸ™‚

Hi Sara…I still live with my ex-boyfriend until I can find a place to live and he is a MAJOR grump!!! I have to spend all day at the doctor and come home to him. I was going to be moping in PJ’s too.

Just a thought, may sound really dumb: Would you like to both go all out and do makeup that is festive & creative that can end up looking disastrous because nobody will see it? Still in PJ’s and sipping whatever type of beverage (martini or tea) we want?

Just an idea to keep each of us distracted and smiling. Both playing makeup at the same time may diminish the loneliness. I’ll check back to see what YOU decided…please don’t feel uncomfortable replying that you would rather not bother, it is just an idea. Happy New Year Sara and everyone else!!!
