FOTD for New Year's Eve

This is what I'd have worn last night if I hadn't just had jaw surgery (again)- I actually did this look on Thursday and wore it for a dash round Tesco before I went to hospital on Friday but you could put it to far more glamourous use! 

I wanted a delicate but sparkly look with a natural lip to showcase my new 'my lips but better' lippie- Chanel la distinguee rouge velvet allure-Christmas present from my mummy :)

I kept my brows as full and natural as possible, with Alessandra Ambrosio in mind, although probably the less comparisons I make between myself and Victoria's Secret models the better! 

Mac idyllic paint pot (LE burgundy colour) mac modern pewter & rich core extra dimension shadows + cranberry eyeshadow. Avenue fluidline, Estée Lauder sumptuous extreme mascara and lash fibres, random Pixi gold eyeshadow on bottom lash line 

Pixi illuminate tint & conceal tinted moisturiser, EL double wear concealer, Mac golden nectar, gana & well dressed blush (contour, highlight & blush colours)
