"In this tutorial, I want to show you my makeup proposal for New Year's Eve. It's a smoky glittery eye look with a special touch for that burgundy base tone.
I hope you liked it a lot and put it into practice with your favorite colors. I wish you a 2022 full of health and happiness. Happy New Year."

Before starting I already have my base and eyebrows done.
1. Create the eyebase color
Mix the two Colorfix shades in equal parts in a palette, and you will get a beautiful burgundy shade. Carefully, apply this color on your mobile lid, it takes time, but this kind of products must be blended very well and especially before it dries. Koyudo Y7 is amazing for this purpose. The Y8 is perfect for the same process on the lower lashline. I haven’t stopped using these brushes with all my cream eye products, they're really wonderful.
2. Apply a transition shadow
This step is very important to integrate the colors with the skin tone. I used the coral shade from the ND Coral Palette with the Chikuhodo GSN10 brush. Both on the crease and on the lower lashline.
3. A fun touch, glitter!!!
Afterwards, with my Chikuhodo GSN9, (one of my favorite application brushes) I pick up a small amount of ND glitter shadow. I've applied it on the eyelid very carefully until I get the desired intensity. It seems like magic how this shadow pops against the base color.
4. Intensify the smoky eye
This is another must-do step. I have used my favorite black pencil to line my eyes on the waterline and outerline. Then, I have used the Bisyodo BS-SL-01 to blend the pencil. After, I have applied black shadow to further define the look. If necessary, blend again with the previous coral shade all around the edges. All with the same Bisyodo brush.
5. Special day, special lashes
New Year’s Eve is a special night and you can give it a special touch by applying false lashes. You can use your favorites, but mine are the individual lashes. Individual lashes are the most natural, and I especially use the ones with a small horizontal base, like Ardell's faux mink. I always apply them underneath, super close to the upper waterline. Apply a little mascara before and after.
6. Finish the face
I quickly finish my face makeup with the Viseart palette. I have applied the three products: bronzer, blush and highlighter with the Mizuho MB114, OMG how multifunctional this brush is, I love it. Finally, apply your favorite lipstick and set your makeup with a mist to last all night.
