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’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.

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
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.

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.

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!!!

It’s a casual at home night with lots of movies, champagne and snacks. I’m planning on sporting glittery nails, sparkly eyes and snuggly pjs, which sounds a little overdone for fireside lounging. Heck, I may even breakout my faux diamond tiara and pretend to talk like the Queen, til the midnight hour. Oh and my favorite winter perfume as well, Regina Harris’ Amber Vanilla.

I will go to a party by a friend of mine. His boyfriend is a chef so there will be a PLENTY of COLORFUL food so I think that I will be colorful too. I’m going to dress up but only by wearing black dress and black heels so I’m going to play with make up using MAC MINERALIZED EYESHADOW WATER&ICE with blue sparkling eyeliner, Nicki Minaj VIVA GLAM lipstick…and of course a pair of false lashes! I Bought today a pair by MAKE UP FOREVER at Sephora. They are quite natural but still awesome and I can wear them other 10 times.

I will be on a plane until midnight, so lots of moisturizer, BB Cream, mascara and a bit if bronzer and blush. I might go crazy and wear a tinted lip balm with it πŸ˜‰

I haven’t even thought about it! I’m going to see Les Mis in the morning and I won’t do makeup until after -in case I cry! I think I’m just staying in but we are having a fancy dinner so I’ll definitely do my makeup! Something with my glitter eyeliner for sure!

Heavy CeraVe moisturizer. Good with fleecy Jammie’s and dogs and a neighborhood so famous for fireworks we all have metal roofs. You don’t drive through a rain of fire.

It’s pretty awesome, though!

I will be growing more beautiful in my skincare by “Tatcha”, fast asleep in my cozy bed with my husband on one side and my poodle on the other. Hey Sara, no need to mope! Was it Oscar Wilde who said, “When you are alone, you are always in good company.” Believe me, you could be a lot worse off than alone. Get yourself a treat to eat, listen to music you like from the past like old Beatles or Led Zepplin or ZZ Top and dance. Get a cheap Sudoku book at the drugstore and learn to play, it’s fun. Make popcorn or chocolate cake. There’s tons to do when you are free to do whatever you want. I hope everyone stays safe.

I’m staying in with my mum and siblings, (Dad is out of town) so probably no makeup because I’ll be too lazy. xD And if I do wear makeup, I’m just gonna be playing with stuff I haven’t used yet/in a while.

Here’s my NYE makeup plan. Most items by Guerlain.

Face: Meteorites Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer; Parure Gold foundation in 01; Precious Light Illuminator in 01; Meteorites Perles du Dragon

Eyes: Turandot eyeshadow; Noir G Mascara

Cheeks: Red Hot blush, Cruel Gardenia to highlight

Lips: Undecided, may use Loreal Crystal Cerise (345)

Hair: Light spritz of β€œOr Imperial Sublime Radiant Powder”

I just watched an awesome makeup tutorial from one of my favorite girls, but lesser known on YT, AyeeDreamer. She created two looks in the video and if I was going out tonight, I would totally be rockin the first one! I even have the Mac glitter she uses and have been trying to find a look to use it for. Perfect opportunity, but my NYE “look” is consisting of a messy bun, sweatpants, thick furry winter socks and no makeup. I’ve got some new years thing on the TV and I’m drinking my THIRD cup of hot chocolate. My boyfriend’s kitty is curled up with me under our faux fur throw and the boyfriend himself is snoring away right next to us. Worn out from the Call Of Duty marathon he’s had apparently and excess hot chocolate as well. LOL

Happy New Year Christine!! Hope your 2012 was great and your 2013 will be even better!! πŸ˜‰ <333

Here's the link to the tutorial, if anyone is interested:

FYI, cutest puppy ever at the end!!!
