I'm posting this on the 2nd of January, of what I wore on NYE! This is a follow up post to my previous post which was prep for NYE. I hope everyone had a lovely time welcoming the New Year in and everyone has a fabulous 2016!

I began by using the Simple moisturiser to prep my skin as I have fairly dry skin. The Simple moisturiser is quite light on the skin. I then used the Benefit 'porefessional' as a primer, I love this primer however find it quite oily and I cannot stand the texture, I don't know if anyone else agree's? It's just so strange! I then used the Mac foundation, with a Real Technique expert face brush. Following my foundation I concealed beneath my eyes with the Collection concealer, this is such a brilliant concealer and conceals dark circles and blemishes. I then secured all of this with the Mac powder, some use this as a foundation but I don't find it too heavy when applied with the Real Technique powder brush. After this, I contoured using the Smashbox palette, put Mac highlighter on my cheekbones and Rimmel blush on the apples of my cheeks.
Moving on to brows and eyes... I used the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomrade, I love this product so much! I've tried many brow products but can't seem to get on with powders. I set them with the Benefit speed brow and highlighted my brow bone with the Benefit high beam.
Moving on to eyes... I used shadows from the Smashbox palette, and used the Mac fluidline to create a cat eye effect. Following all of this I put some Eyelure lashes on! I love these as they aren't too long but just long enough to finish of the look.
And lips... I used Mac 'New York Apple' on my lip, it is a redish shade, but not overpowering red and a lovely sheen.
The finished look was this...
