New Year Make-up Must Haves

Just in time for the New Year festivities, here are some tips & tricks to achieve a sultry & seductive New Years look with a difference.

Tip One

Don’t be afraid to pull out the stops with your smokey eye looks. Choose a mixture of textures to create a gorgeous depth to the eyes. Nilofar Mussa, from the Illamasqua Art Collective, recommends our Demise Pallet.

The rich shades in the palette were carefully chosen to reflect multidimensional tones and to create a textural & autumnal smokey eye. This quad includes the ‘extinct’ shade Gimp, which was brought back following a call from our fans, the #Illamafia.

Tip Two

Always, always, always line the eyes with Precision Gel Liner in Quixotic.   This deep, emerald green gel eyeliner has a soft iridescent finish and is the perfect festive alternative to black. Use to line the eyes or blend all over the lid, layering Pure Pigment in Axolot for an unconventional smokey eye. 

Tip Three

Play up to the sparkle of the New Year celebrations by pressing Pure Pigment in Beguile on to the very centre of the lid and lower lash line. This versatile, translucent shimmer picks up multi-tonal hues as it reflects the light. 

Tip Four

Create warm, auroral skin by layering Beyond Powder in Epic and then Beyond Powder in OMG over the high-points. Highlight your cupid’s bow, cheekbones, brow bone for beautifully soft-lit skin, or dust across the whole body for an all over supernatural glow.

Beyond Powders can be used wet or dry. Use a damp brush to apply for a more opaque, highly reflective finish.  

Tip Five

Opt for something a little more daring on your lips this New Year.  Lipstick in Disciple with  Pure Pigment in Alluvium pressed over the top will give you a sophisticated & different chrome lip.

Just in time for the New Year festivities, here are some tips & tricks to achieve a sultry & seductive New Years look with a difference.
