Looking your best for New Year's Eve doesn't need to be hard! You just have to know what the best tricks are! Makeup artist Taryn Miller showed us how to get the perfect glam look for the New Year's party!
Her look is totally gorgeous, with just the right about of drama and a nice pop of color on the cheeks. Our model was ready for a night on the town! Check out how she did it below.
Starting with the eyebrows, Taryn filled them both in to frame the face.
She then put a highlight right under the brow to really make her eyes pop.
She added just a bit of shadow to the eyes to create a subtle smokey effect, blending it nicely so there weren't any harsh lines.
Then, when she lined the eyes she gave them a small wing- everyone loves a little cat eye!
False lashes were added to her lids as close as possible to the natural lash line without getting it in the eye.
Now that the eyes were all ready, she added a smoth foundation to even out her skin tone. No one needs to see any imperfections when you are out on the town!
She brightened up the undereye area with some concealer.
And after that was blended added in a highlighter to give her face a warm glow.
It was all blended in, then Taryn used a special technique called baking that works great for a night out. You use a little bit of finishing powder and put it on pretty heavy. You let it sit for a few minutes to really set your makeup so it won't wear off while you dance and then you just lightly dust it off with your powder brush. It looks a little silly while you are doing it but it's worth it!
While she was "baking" they applied the mascara to her lashes so the falsies would blend in better with her natural lashes.
Then they brushed off the access powder - see now it looks normal, and it will last better!
They went with a nice nude lip that would let all the attention stay on her beautiful eyes and then she was ready for a night out!
Taryn did an amazing job giving her a beautiful look that isn't too hard to replicate on your own. The subtle smokey eye is a classic look for a good reason! It looks great on so many different skin tones and ages, and works perfect for a night out!
