A New Years Look in No Time

Following on from last weeks festive in five minutes post, this week follows a very similar theme. This time, it’s a New Years look in no time! I know a lot of people will be super excited to get all glammed up for New Years Eve, taking the time to make sure their hair’s right and their makeup looks completely on point. It’s also important to note that for a lot of people out there, they’ll be working till late, working all night or simply spending it at home with friends- possibly even alone.

No matter where you’re spending it, it’s not necessarily going to an occasion you want to spend a lot of time getting ready for and if that’s the case, this is the makeup for you.

On a similar theme to my festive makeup, this makeup look uses fingers as tools and only a few different products to create a glam, glittery look perfect for bringing in the New Year.

For me this year, I’ll be working until the evening and then having my friend come round for pajamas, snacks and drinks. To be perfectly honest, I doubt I’ll be wearing makeup at all. I’ll definitely be giving this a go for work though! What are you up to this New Years? I’d love to know!
