Dewy Skin

Using MUA Luxe Highlight & Blush Shimmer sticks gives your skin a dewy finish instantly. Simply dab the highlighting illuminator onto the top of your cheekbones and around to the end of your eyebrow then press into the skin with your fingertips. I’m OBSESSED.

Purple Smokey Eyes

Who needs an eye primer when you have cream eye shadow? Prepare eyelids by using  Luxe Metallic Palette in shade Mysterial using a light layer. You should wait a minute to let the eyelid absorb the product. Cream eye shadow is an excellent product that increases the vibrancy of powder eye shadow and makes it easier to put on eye shadow and more importantly it prevents creasing or flaking.

The Luxe Pretty Edgy Eye Palette is encased in a cool gold studded clutch. This palette features a mixture of pretty pink neutrals with dark sultry tones in velvet matte and shimmery textures.

Purple smokey eye makeup is one of those versatile and timeless looks that can easily go from day to night, or from day time glam to a New Years Eve party. I love the feminine look this sophisticated colour can create every time being used on my eyes. Blend it well with matching lighter and darker shades of lilac, pink and purple from the Pretty Edgy Eye Paletteand you’ll get a smoldering makeup look that will make you the queen of the night.

Highlighting and contouring is a tough task and there is so much work that goes into it. However using MUA’s Luxe Bronze & Sculpt Kit, the end result will help achieve the look of higher cheekbones, a defined jaw, a slimmer nose, and even a sculpted cheek. Learn how to perfect this look and feel like a Supermodel in our contouring tutorial.

Fuchsia Lips

Scared to try a bright lip this NYE? A fuchsia lip is the way to break out of your nude lip slump. A swipe of Vivacity Luxe Lip Lacquer is appropriate for day and night – the right shade can suit a multitude of skin tones and it’s a fuss-free way to glam up your NYE look. Still scared? Ease yourself into it by trying MUA’s Luxe Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Bedazzle, or by simply dabbing the lip lacquer lipstick on with your fingers to achieve a slightly muted “stained” effect.
