Whether you are at home, on a mini break or a long exotic holiday or just heading out for the night, I always like to take New Years Eve as an opportunity to for one last bit of pampering, go out with a bang and start as you mean to go on!
Don’t get me wrong I have on many occasions been found moaning about NYE as just another way to get us to spend ridiculous amounts of money and it can also be incredibly overrated, so I don’t blame those who just like to sit in watch Jools Holland or a movie and treat it as a normal evening.
But the last couple of years I have actually gone away and have found I have enjoyed it so much more, exploring new places is always exciting and a great way to kick off the new year.
No matter where I am though, I always like to have a bit of NYE prep. I’m talking skin, hair, makeup, nails and perfume.
So here are some of my fave products. I received this gorgeous Omorivicza kit for Christmas, it contains a few of their staples, the skin polisher the mask and the amazing cleansing balm. I will use all three products to ensure my skin is tip top but also because you feel like you e had a facial after using them. Next up I moisturise and add a few drops of clarins golden glow booster to give my face a glow and also my favourite St Tropez gradual tinted tan, it smells incredible is the perfect colour and I feel it acts like a bit of a body concealer.
After my ski is prepped I move onto my hair, I got this mini GHD hairdryer for my birthday and it’s the perfect travel companion if like me you’re going to be away, and these GHD hair tongs create gorgeous loose waves looking like you’ve had the perfect blow dry!
Last but not least is makeup, although if I was staying in I’d skip this and just leave all the face products to soak into my skin! But as I’ll be out I will be using Giorgio Armani Luminous Glow foundation for my base followed by Charlotte Tilbury killer contour and Laura Mercier candle Glow palette to give the cheeks a pop of colour. For eyes I’ll be using one of these Zoeva palettes (yet to be decided) all 3 are beautiful there are plenty to choose from! I’ll create a feline flick Eyeliner using my Tom Ford dual ended liner (best ever) and lashings of this Nars mascara. Lastly for my lips I’ll be using (And carrying with me all night) Tom Ford Lip Duo, again this was an Xmas pressie but is so beautiful and I love anything that is a duo!!! And voila that’s me prepped, what do you like to do in preparation of the new year?
Wishing everyone a fantastic start to 2017!!!!
