Hello beauties!
New Years Eve is rapidly approaching and what says NYE more than glitter??? I decided to do a look based around the notoriously glittery eyeshadow from Urban Decay - Midnight Cowboy. I think everyone here on blogger has heard about Midnight Cowboy, if not owned it. It's a beautiful, beautiful shade that comes with a lot of fall out and Fix+ is definitely it's saviour!

Those of you who have read my blog for a while probably know that I don't do 'out there' make up, so this is pretty neutral. I wish I'd have bought falsies to go with this look because I think it would look gorgeous with them. But, I don't have any fake eyelashes and I'm actually a falsies virgin *mouth drop* Anyways, this is what I came up with, pretty simple but that bit of glitter that New Years Eve needs :)

All the eyeshadows I used are from the Urban Decay Alice palette.

- 'Drink Me Eat Me' all over the lid as a base
- Spray my brush with Fix+ and pat 'Midnight Cowboy' all over lid
- 'Chessur' on crease and blended
- 'Jabberwocky' on the outer creased and winged out slightly
- 'Jabberwocky' pushed into the lower and upper lashline
- Lined waterline with Benefit 'Bad Gal'
- Lashings of mascara and Voila!

Whenever I just post the eyeshadow look, people are always curious what the whole face shot looks like, so I thought I'd show you how I'd wear my face make up with this look too...

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation
Elf High Definition powder
MAC Harmony as contour
MAC Well dressed as blush
Elf Golden Bronzer as highlight on cheek+brow bones

Avon lipstick in Pout
MUA lipgloss in Shade 1

I don't actually have any plans for NYE as of yet, I'm gutted I'm not 18 in time! What are your plans? Are you planning a big glitter-fest?


  1. You look lovely, this look is gorgeous! I know what you mean about not being 18 yet! I turn 18 in April, such a piss take! Hope you have fun whatever you do! :D xxxx

  2. Whenever I think New Years Eve, I ALWAYS think of glitter! This is a perfect look :) Your eyelashes are long enough to not use false ones!

  3. Looking pretty as always Nat :)
    I know how you feel about not being 18 yet, my boyf is and half of my friends are and I'm not 18 until June which sucks eggs but I'm surposed to be working New Years Day which sucks even more eggs :( xx

  4. You have lovely long lashes already you definately don't need falsies your naturally lucky! Gorgeous look! :) xx

  5. I love that you've used an Avon lipstick here... I'm an Avon rep aswell as blogger and 'Pout' is my personal favourite (I'm naughty and I have at least 5 tubes of the stuff in my make up bag)!!!

  6. I love that look! Haha I don't think you need falsies with your lashes, I'm so jealous!
    HHaha my NYE is so boring cause I don't really go out that much yet so I'm just gonna stay in and watch NYE tv, fun eh? :P


  7. So pretty, and the best part is that I own the Alice in Wonderland palette. Will definitely be recreating the look.

  8. @Ula - Ahh no! I supposed I'm a bit luckier as my birthday is Jan the 4th ;) But it's sort of like... so close yet so far! Haha

    @Amaris - Glitter is a must really, either on the eyes or shoes? Lol! Ahh thank you :)

    @Abbie - Thank youuuu. Oh same! They're all having 18th birthday meals with trips off to bars afterwards. Not long yet though for me!

    @GoldenGlow - Aw thank you, I feel like such a bad blogger for never wearing falsies :O!

    @kt_gray_3 - You can get some really great bits from Avon! I love Pout, it reminds me a lot of MAC's Angel which is one of my faves

    @Nats - Thanks chick, I think lashes would've given it that extra vavavoom though lol. Chances are I probably won't go out this year, my boyf isn't much of a partier and we've not spent any NYE's together so I think I owe it to him, haha

    @FunnyFaceBeauty - Yay! Let me know if it goes well, glad you liked it :)


  9. very pretty! I love how you do your makeup

  10. Gorgeous, I love how you've done your eye makeup! x
