New Year's Eve Makeup With John Lewis

So guys, I can't believe how fast this year has past and it's almost time to say goodbye to 2016! It's been a really lovely year and I'm ready to see it out in style. This New Year's Eve I've decided to go for a glam makeup look. I'm pairing a selection of makeup available at For a change this year, I'm going to switch out the red lip and go for a nude lip instead. However, I do have an alternative red option over of my Instagram (see it here), just in-case you prefer that! Most of the makeup I'm using is high-end (everything will be linked below for you)  because on very special occasions like NYE I love to feel and look a million dollars! 

John Lewis have a stunning array of luxurious makeup brands such as YSL, Guerlain, Dior, Tom Ford, Givenchy and many more! There is also an amazing range of gift sets available like this Yves Saint Laurent one. This gift set is £50 and comes with 4 makeup products in a glossy black makeup bag. It includes the famous Touche Eclat Concealer and Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara along with an eyeliner pencil and Top Secrets moisturiser. This is a really lovely set with amazing quality products. On my face I'm wearing the Touche Eclat concealer which covers, conceals, brightens and awakens my under eye area. This concealer has a slight pink undertone to it, so perfect for correcting any blue or discolouration under the eye. On my lashes I'm wearing the Volume Effect Faux Cils mascara which gives me amazing spider leg lashes and lots of volume. However, it does bleed (ever so slightly) onto my under eye, so I recommend setting your under eye area with powder to help prevent this. I'm also wearing the little waterproof eyeliner pencil that comes in the set too. I ran this along my waterline and it's insanely jet black. This is a gorgeous little gift set for only £50. 

You may know by now that my favourite makeup products are bronzers. I'm absolutely obsessed with these and I try so many to find the best ones for that beautiful sun-kissed complexion. A bronzer I've been lusting for, for years is the Guerlain Terracotta bronzer. This has the most stunning (antique marble effect) packaging design I have ever laid eyes on. To add warmth to this NYE makeup, I swept this bronzer across my cheek bones, concentrating more in my hollows to create the illusion of a slimmer face. The bronzer has a delightful fresh scent with light golden flexes to give your cheeks a beautiful bronzed glow. I used the quirky Benefit Hoola bronzing & contouring brush to apply it and works a treat! Now as I mentioned, this year I'm going for a nude lip, so I picked this beautiful YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in Nude in Private. This is a perfect glossy lip shade which gives a plumpy look to my lips. It is extremely creamy and buttery but doesn't slip or slide. YSL lipsticks have been on my wishlist for the longest of time and I'm so unbelievably happy to have one in my life! So to complete my New Year's Eve makeup, I spritz Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris perfume onto my neck. This is a floral and sweet scent (full review coming soon!) and has become one of my favourite fragrances to date!

I hope you like my New Year's Eve makeup look!
