LOOK OF THE DAY: Smokey Eye and Sparkly Dress! (My New Year's Eve 2012 Look)


Happy Monday darlings...it's the first Monday of the year!  Today's Look of the Day comes courtesy of ....surprise, surprise....my New Year's Eve makeup look! .....I wore a black sequined dress for the occasion and wanted my makeup to be equally as glamorous, without overpowering my already festive wardrobe.  A few hours before getting dressed, I settled on doing a heavily-lined eye with very bold fuchsia lips.  I even went to MAC and bought Girl About Town (lipstick) specifically for this purpose.  At the very last minute, however, I switched it up!  As you can see, I opted for smokey eyes, soft pink lips, and full, but well-defined brows 

DISCLAIMER: Much to my chagrin, the reflection from the sequins caused my skin to appear splotchy in most of the photos...I almost didn't post the pics because of this...but now that you know, we can move forward...Lol..... click below for MORE PICS + Full list of products used...



OVERALL LOOK:
All the eye shadows I used in this look are from Urban Decay's Naked Palette.


SIDE VIEW:
I LOVE this MAC Viva Glam GAGA lipstick!...Note: I had to use a skin-toned lip liner to prevent it from looking chalky.


ANOTHER ANGLE:
I RARELY look good from this angle, but this photo gets a pass! Lol


AFTER GETTING HOME FROM THE PARTY:
This is AFTER the party....my makeup held-up pretty well :)
