Time to get Sparkly – NYE Makeup Inspiration

By December 26, 2014 No Comments

 Now that Christmas has come and gone – insert sad face – it’s time to start thinking about another amazing holiday…

New Years Eve!!!

This holiday is all about looking amazing and sparkly, whether you are just having a mellow evening with friends or if you are going for an all out night on the town, you definitely want to look your best!  You’ve gotta say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015 with an amazing ensemble and a flawless face.

We reached out to one of our good friends Kierra Scheffer, a makeup artist who’s work ranges from bridal to celebrity, to give us two fun makeup looks for that special night.  She delivered with some easy how to steps and we loved the results!!

Sultry Eye

Kierra explains:

“These palettes are great for creating fun/colorful smokey eyes, rather than just the traditional smokey look. We used the green palette on Jacquelyn. The palette makes it so simple to create a smokey NYE look. Use the lightest shade as the highlight color, then simply get lighter as you work your way out from the lashline. The dark green is beautiful as a smokey liner color.

Loved the way this palette added that smokiness to the eyes without being too dark… Just enough sparkle!meganwelker-Beijos-Makeup-48

“This color is the perfect deep plum/red for the holiday season. Long-wearing with a matte finish.
For the eyes we used a simple wash of gold shimmer all over the lid, with Bobbi Brown black gel eyeliner for a defined dark wing.”
