BEAUTY BAR: A Desirous New Year

Holidays always mean one thing to me: lots of shimmer! As the year is coming to an end, I can’t think of a greater way to welcome 2016 than with a fierce make-up look. At first, dark lipsticks with a burgundy/plum base may seem a little grim, but personally I think those colors fit well during the holiday season. This Fashionista sure knew how to work the shimmer and the dark matte lipstick and I am loving it!

Since this Fashionista’s outfit is simple, cozy and neutral, it is the most perfect to play around with the eyeshadow base/crease colors. For the lip, this Fashionista used one of Estee Lauder’s Pure Envy Matte Lipsticks in the color, Desirous. I enjoyed this look very much because its strong, but effortless at the same time. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing dark lipstick, you can swap out for a nude lip as well. As for the hair, no matter what season it is, I feel that loose waves will always be one of my go-to hairstyles. The loose waves give the make-up look a soft and natural touch which will give you more of a relaxed and carefree look.

What’s on the BEAUTY BARTo complete this look, you need a nude eyeshadow palette, winged liner and a matte lipstick. To achieve the loose waves, you need a curling wand. Now if you prefer to splurge on clothes rather than makeup (like me!), you can use Maybelline’s nude eyeshadow palette and opt out for NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in the color, Siren.
