Youtube Makeup Tutorial: Glam New Years Eve Party Silver Sequin Eyes

This was one of my favorite looks to have came up with, not because it's particularly difficult or complex, but because there was no inspiration or direction behind it other than I wanted something to match my dress for the evening. Complete overkill right? But out came one of those sporadic organic creative moments when you bang out something completely of your own and I just love when that happens.
Two tutorials in a week, who the heck am I! Apparently you guys still want to see videos from me who knew! I thought it might be sooo 5 years a go by now, but hopefully my interest in creating there again will continue :) I wanted to share an alternative to the usual NYE Party glitter eyes (WATCH), though if you like glittering lids as I do too, my Nancy Spungen Tutorial would fit that bill. Glitter, Sequins, Silver, or Gold, as long as it sparkles it belongs on your face...if only for one celebratory night :)

This is very versatile and can be tailored to any color of your choice. Gold, bronze, blue, black or a combination of would look stunning, as well as changing the lip color to what you like best. Sequins can be found at most craft or art supply stores..or your own closet. Attach them with DUO Lash Adhesive, and they'll last through the ball drop...the lipstick however...can't make any promises on that ;)

If Sequins are a little out there or unavailable to you, just follow the eye tutorial and then add some pretty rhinestone lashes instead! Both Red Cherry and Ardell make them (get them here).

My Original Photo's of the first time I did this look can be found HERE.
There would have been better makeup pictures of this except take the above...don't you just hate when you do your makeup, snap some pictures, later take the makeup off. Only then to see you had a wonky eyelash, jacked up eyeliner, or in this case a renegade sequin trying to escape from my face? Just figures! That's what I get for trying to do glamorous when I'm not :)
