New Year's Eve - No glitz, but all glam!

Hi dolls! Happy New Year's Eve! I had a hard time with this. Naturally, I wanted to go for crazy glittery eye looks that scream New Year's Eve but than I thought how NYE is (unfortunately) on a Tuesday and how hard it might be to scrub off all that glitter (possibly hungover). It happens. SO I came up with an eye look and a lip look that aren't necessarily glittery and over-the-top but are bold and fun to wear!

First up: A BOLD CAT EYE LINER! Because you sometimes you just have to wing it - literally. This in itself creates so many endless possibilities. With MAC Fix+, you can make any eyeshadow into an eyeliner. If you want super glittery, do it! If you want a bolder color, go for it! Pair this with a nude lip and you're good to go!

Another option is a fun lip! The trend this year was OMBRE LIPS! I kind of twisted it and made it a tie-dye/ombre kind of look. I really have no clue what to call but it's fun nonetheless! If you want to rock the eye look above with the lips below, try using a pink or orange liner for the cat eye.
What are you wearing tonight? Would you try out one of these looks?

Guys, thank you for an amazing 2013! Here's to even more amazing 2014. I can feel it's going to be filled with great things. I'll keep this short and sweet because I swear, I'll be sobbing while writing this but thank you all for everything. I really mean it! 2014 will be filled with more reviews, tutorials and giveaways! Please be safe tonight! Xx
