FOTNYE: Pixiwoo’s sparkly lash NYE look (12/31/10)

I wanted to wear some fun lashes for New Year’s Eve, and I decided to follow Pixiwoo’s sparkly lash New Year’s Eve tutorial. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, especially considering it’s my first cut crease, and it was a bit intimidating. (Sorry I look kind of gormless in this shot; just dazed out while Greg was taking them, and didn’t have another full one with the lashes.)

-Clinique Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in Sparkling Nude (all around the eye)
-Sleek eyeshadow in Gullible (Bad Girl palette; brow highlight)
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Eldorado (cut crease)
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Gunmetal (cut crease, lower lashline)
-Josie Maran Argan Eyeshadow in Cloak (cut crease, lower lashline, connecting the two)
-Josie Maran Argan Eyeshadow in Valencia (outer browbone, above cut crease)
-CoverGirl LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black (upper lashline, connecting to Cloak line)
-Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara in Extreme Black
-e.l.f. Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara (on brows)
-MAC Select Cover-Up in NC20 (under eyes, on cheeks to reduce redness, on spots)
-Clinique Supermoisture Makeup in Linen mixed with MAC Strobe Liquid
-MAC Fix+
-Ardell Fright Night Dark Angel lashes (worn about half the night)
-Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Hair Dye
-e.l.f. Hypershine Gloss in Blossom

I really like this lip combo. And I liked the eyes with and without the lashes. (Sometimes lash glue bothers me and I can’t wear the lashes very long, and sometimes not. Not really sure why that would be, but there it is.) I loved the lashes, and got compliments on them, so yay!

New Year’s was a blast, and we got to hang with a bunch of awesome local friends, and a bunch of friends who’ve moved up to New York and that we don’t get to see as often. And there was some debauchery and a kiddie pool (that three people got in), and a pinata, and some crazy freestyling that I recorded a bit of and will try to upload.

  1. NYE is the perfect time to do crazy lashes, and those ones are hawt! Kudos for not fucking up the cut crease, its perfection! I would try to do that but i know i would just become obsessive and pissy about doing it perfect!

    • Thanks! And, yeah, I think I spent more time convincing myself not to spaz out over trying to get them exactly the same and perfect, than I did actually applying it. πŸ™‚

  2. What a great look! The lashes are awesome! You did a great job on the cut crease! Sounds like you had a great new years eve!

  3. HWAAAAH? This is amazing! I am jealous of all you people with your properly shaped eyes and cut creases and awesome NYE makeup.

    • Thanks! But I think my eyes are at least a smidge wonky, and this wasn’t perfectly even (and oh how my inner perfectionist wailed about that) – so you should try a cut crease, too, because it will be awesome. Yes.
