While I’ll admit to wishing the Christmas season lasted a bit longer, I’m definitely ready for the New Year and expectantly waiting for 2015. I know it’s going to be a great year, and I’m so excited to celebrate! New Year’s is such a fun time and I love creating special makeup looks just for the occasion. I recently received the gorgeous Mirabella Faerie Collection and came up with a gorgeous, soft, shimmery romantic New Year’s beauty look with an accompanying tutorial.
The Mirabella Faerie Collection is nothing but gorgeous. The products include:
- Gossamer Colour Luxe Lip Gloss ($26)
- Luminosity Colour Luxe Lip Gloss ($26)
- Myth Visionary Long Wear Eyeshadow ($29)
- Swirling Pearl Brilliant Highlighting Powder ($40)
Everything in this set is lovely, but we need to have a moment of silence for the Swirling Pearl Brilliant Highlighting Powder. It’s just that good!
It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of makeup I’ve ever set eyes on!
The eyeshadow is a creamy, bouncy wonder that is reminiscent of ColourPop eyeshadow, except you can apply it easily with a brush, which isn’t so with the ColourPop shadows.
Myth is a deep golden brown that blends beautifully and stays put on your eyelids, which is always a good thing.
The glosses come with a doe foot applicator and have the benefit of being shiny and feeling comfortable, while offering glittery shine.
And now for a quick tutorial to show you how to create a gorgeous New Year’s Eve beauty look.
The look I created is a different take on the traditional Holiday smoky eye. Before I get started on the eyes, I made sure to apply the highlighter to my cheekbones, down the middle of my nose, right above my lips, and in the middle of my forehead.
Step 1: After priming my lid with an eyeshadow base, I use a flat brush to apply Myth eyeshadow to the outer corner of my eyes. The brush I used in this step and step 2 is from the Smashbox Full Exposure palette.
Step 2: I use a fluffy blending brush (same brush from step 1) to make sure the color is evenly distributed and to blend out the edges.
Step 3: I use my finger to pat Myth on my lid for high color payoff.
Step 4: I use a flat brush (Bdellium 773) to add a shimmery pink (BFTE Cotton Candy) to the inner lid.
Step 5: I use a small brush (MAC 213) to add a satin cream color to the browbone (MAC Vanilla).
Step 6: I finish off the look with brows, a shimmery black eyeliner on top (Rimmel Scanadaleyes in Sparkling Black), and a gold on the waterline (NYX Glitzy Gold).
Step 7: The look is completed with a mixture of both Mirabella glosses on my lips.
And there you have it! Happy 2015!
My Final Thoughts: The Mirabella Faerie Collection offers shimmery goodness all around. The piece de resitance is the Swirling Pearl Brilliant Highlighting Powder, which is a work of art!
Price: $26- $40
This is a special post because I paired up with my fellow bloggers of The Beauty Council to create New Year’s looks with the Mirabella Faerie Collection. Visit their blogs to see how they used this collection to shimmer and shine their way into 2015!
