Three NYE Makeup Bag Updates!

Ahead of New Year's Eve tomorrow night, I wanted to share with you three of my favourite products to instantly update your look for special occasions, especially suitable for NYE if you want to add a little sparkle to your New Year's party look... without going OTT on the glitter!
First up is one of the most unique items in my makeup stash. It isn't one I use all the time but it's perfect for adding a little bit of sparkle and shimmer to your eyes without it looking tacky or OTT.
It's Urban Decay's 'Solstice'. It's a peachy-pink based duo-chrome shade with elements of green and purple and it's equally as beautiful worn alone or layered over other colours. It looks different over every different shadow I've tried it with so far, a really versatile addition to my makeup bag. Just remember... a little goes a very long way with this one! It's one of Urban Decay's Mooniest collection and is £14.00 available online here and at Urban Decay counters.
L-R: Urban Decay's Solstice worn alone, layered over a dark matte brown, layered over a medium matte taupe
Next up is my current highlighter of choice, Benefit's Wattsup. This champagne cream highlighter can be used sparingly to create a subtle glow, or layered up for a more dramatic look. I also love using this on my eyes for a pretty, glowing highlight on the inner corners or centre of the eyelid. I would definitely recommend applying and blending this with your fingers (rather than directly from the stick and blending with the attached sponge) as it's much easier to apply like this and the warmth of your fingers helps it to blend in more easily. I love this product for adding a noticeable glow without looking shimmery or glittery at all. It's £24.50, available online here or at Benefit counters.
Last but not least for my NYE makeup bag updates is my latest mascara obsession. I tried YSL's Babydoll when it came out a couple of years ago and didn't really like it at the time, but having been convinced to give it a second chance by a friend, I really regret not giving it enough of a road-test before! This stuff is magic for you lashes. Incredible volume, length AND definition... what more could you ask for in a mascara?! This, combined with individual false lashes is the ultimate combination for New Year's Eve party lashes! It's pricey at £25, but it's definitely my top recommendation when it comes to high-end mascaras right now! It's currently 10% off at feelunique here.
What are you all up to for NYE tomorrow night? I hope you have a great time!

  26. I would have never picked up that eyeshadow based on how it looks alone, but I love how it looks over the taupe and dark brown! I saw the Benefit Wattsup last time I was Sephora and was curious about it because I haven't heard anyone mention it yet! I always love your mascara recommendations so of course this is one I want to try as well!

  31. Benefit's watts up looks so gorgeous but I've always leaned towards powder highlighters - I may try it more towards the summer after hearing all the good reviews. Your lashes are gorgeous!

  37. I've heard a lot of good stuff about this Benefit highlighter (Casey Holmes raves about it:) and I think I'm going to try it out! I hope I get it on sale, though. It's a little bit expensive for a highlighter. Just saying. :) Great blog post, like always, love your opinion on the products! Take care, xoxo

  38. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com

  41. Heart broken for the past 2 years after 5 years of marriage. I can't emphasize about how it happened because it's a long story. My husband divorced me and went after his EX girlfriend leaving me hopeless. I really appreciate the help of GOD why? because i found a helper on GOOGLE called Dr Unity who allots of citizens from various countries has testified about that GOD sent him to help those that are in captivity. I got in touch with him via his E-mail: ( Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on +2348072370762) and he said that my husband will return back to me and as far i have contacted him, my marriage will be from glory to glory and i was so pleased with his words. He prepared a spell for me and i did all what he said as instructed and now, i can boldly say and testify to the world that my husband is back for good and i will forever be indebted to Dr Unity for his miracle. If you have any problem contact Dr Unity, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you!!. Website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com.

The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +2348072718865. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
