Creative Makeup for New Year's Parties - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. For a New Year's Eve party, what you want to do with your makeup is to bump it up. Go a little smokier, okay? I am using this pallette that has the charcoal sparkly gray with pink and a muted light gray. So apply a darker color for the smokey effect, just on the lid. Like that. Get your fluffy brush and apply the second color right on the crease. You can definitely go a little darker, you can use black, or you can use any shade of any dark color, like dark blue, dark purple, but for this particular look I am just using a dark gray color. So for a more glamorous look I am using the strip lashes on Mercedes. This will give you a more dramatic effect on your eyes. When you are using the strip lashes it is a little hard in the beginning. So before that special night, practice, practice and practice. This is how you put it on, so once you take it out, with your fingers or just with a tweezer, get your eyelash glue, make sure you get the strip lash glue, and apply very little, just on the strip. Let it dry for about 15 to 20 seconds. 15 seconds later - go ahead and look down - and just go as close to your lash line as possible. You can use a liquid eyeliner before or after. When you are applying this on yourself you get a mirror and look down. The reason why you want to look down, so that the eyelid is not wrinkled, straight, so when you put your eyelashes it will lay on there smoothly and perfect. Now to make it more fun for a New Year's Eve party go ahead and add glitter. This will definitely make it more special for the night and just make it more - you will stand out a little bit more than the others. For the lips I am going to apply this red lipstick. It is called Stunning. This will definitely make you look stunning for the New Year's Eve party. It will give you a lot of attention, and that is what you're looking for, right? With red lipstick it is a little bit more complicated because it is so bright, so you want to use a lip brush to apply it on your lips. This will give you more control. Smile. You can definitely use a lip liner before you apply this or you can just use this alone. Be extra careful around the edges. If you make a mistake this will definitely show it up. For a New Year's Eve party, of course you are going to be kissing at the end of the night. Be extra careful on choosing the right lip color, or the right product. There are products that are waterproof, and there are products that are long-wear. So if you want it to stay on the other person then go ahead and use any red lips. Definitely you will leave that mark. But if you do not want it to transfer to the other person, then get the appropriate product that will keep it staying. So those are just some of my tips for how to get a long lasting look for New Year's Eve.
