New Years Eve Makeup - Selena Gomez

61 comments:
 
I'm taking a short break from my Game of Thrones series to do a stunning, smokey purple New Years Eve look inspired by the Selena Gomez music video "Love You Like A Love Song". I'm not really a fan of Selena or that song but her look in the video is too pretty not to want to try and copy. The look is really simple so anyone can wear this and feel like royalty, regardless of your makeup skill. Here's a close up shot of the eye so you can see how simple and stunning it is:

My favorite part of the look (besides the luxe lashes from Velour) is the gorgeous prismatic pigment on the inner corner of the eye. I'm always raving about the Annabelle Mineral Dust Pigments and this is no exception. This white shade is "Prism". Prism is a gorgeous diamond white loose pigment with light pink and purple undertones that plays well with any cool colored shadows. I used glycerine to apply it wet to get the highly pigmented sheen you see here. I faded it up into the purple on the lid and across into the purple on the lower lash line for that gorgeous gradient effect.


This look is really colorful and has a lot of impact, so play the rest of your face with subtle shades. The eye uses a mix of cool and warm colors so you can go either way with your blush/lips. I wanted to try a warm coral color on the cheeks and lips to keep me from looking to pasty, but if you wanted to pair this with an icy pink lip and a light champagne highlight on the cheeks, that would be beautiful as well.

Here's the original look - as you can see I toned it down a bit to make it a bit more wearable for a holiday party

I looked really herp derp in all my face forward shots so that's all you guys get for today, lol. If you'd like to see a tutorial for this look before NYE, let me know in the comment section below and I'd be happy to oblige. 

And don't forget, there's still time to vote for my look on Makeupbee. The grand prize is $500.00 which I'd love to share with you guys in a HUGE giveaway but I need your help!!
