New Year Makeup Ft. the Naked 2 Palette

To celebrate the beginning of a new year (and a fun-filled, event-packed one at that), my friends and I had a small gathering at one of their houses and I have honestly not laughed that much in a long time. It is times like that that are really quite invaluable and precious, I need to appreciate them more.

Obviously I wanted to dress up a bit for the night and I really liked how my makeup looked so I thought you might like to see it. I used my new Naked 2 palette that I got for Christmas (see here) but only used 'Chopper' all over my lid for a little more subtle look but because it is quite shimmery, it still looked pretty and party-appropriate. Because I went a little more natural on the eyes, I went all out with a brighter lip to match my top. You don't hear many people talk about the Revlon Lip Butters any more but they are still one of my favourite lipstick lines that I have ever tried. They are so smooth and pigmented and just gorgeous. 

Did you all have a good hogmanay/new year?
