**Check out contest details following the steps
This makeup is sure to turn heads when you walk into the room this New Year's Eve with classic glamour lips and a modern-coloured bold eye.
Here is a step-by-step on how to create this smoking hot look.
1) CLEANSE, TONE and MOISTURIZE
The skin is a much easier canvas to work on when it's clean and hydrated.
Use a primer all over the face and eyelids. This will help the makeup last all night.
3) TWEEZE AND SHAPE
Tweeze the brows of any stray hairs to give them shape and sharpness. The focus is on the eye makeup and lips so don't overdo the brows with pencils or colour. Use a natural brow colour and follow your hair line filling them in lightly.
4) EYESHADOW - THE LID
On the eyelid use a light copper shadow or lighter bronze and just cover the lid. The more shimmer in the shadow the better.
5) EYESHADOW - THE CREASE
For your crease colour use a deeper brown with a crease brush (one with a tapered tip) and follow your natural crease. Be sure to bring it slightly beyond the outer corner of the eye.
6) EYESHADOW - OUTER CORNER
You can use the same colour for this next step or use a dark brown or even a black, but if you use black, make sure to dab your brush on a Kleenex to remove any excess shadow. Use this colour to create a V-shape in the outer corner blending it into the crease.
7) EYESHADOW - HIGHLIGHTING
Using a highlighting shade in nude or one shade lighter than your skin tone, place this shadow right under your brow lightly blending down towards your crease.
8)EYESHADOW - BLENDING
Take a blending brush (a really fluffy one) and blend the crease in with the shades on the lid and under the brow. Blend! Blend! Blend!
Wipe away any fallout under the eyes and use a yellow- or orange-based concealer to cover any dark circles by blending the edges into the skin. Use a green-based concealer to hide any blemishes or redness.
Using your regular foundation cover your face and neck to the desired finish: light, medium or full coverage. Remember to blend in the concealer.
11) HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING
For this you will need a matte cream shade which you will place under the eye brushing onto your cheek bones. Also put a light amount on your chin, along the bridge of the nose and your forehead. The colour to use for contouring should be a matte tan colour that will be applied just under the cheekbones, temples and along your hairline. Blend any hard lines in with a sponge.
12) LIPS - COLOUR AND LINER
To complete this look you can use any shade of red, from the brightest cherry to the deepest blood-coloured hue. Once you have chosen the shade, line your lips with a red liner, creating the shape you want.
13) LIPS - FILLING
Use a lip brush or an angled brush to get a shaped lip line and fill in your entire area, right to the corners of your mouth. This will give a fuller look. You can finish the lip with a gloss in red or clear.
14) LASHES AND LINER - Add a set of full beautiful lashes. Apply mascara before and after lash application create a full and seamless look. You could add a thin line of black liner if you choose.
15) FINAL POWDER
To set everything in place for the evening, use a fluffy powder brush with a transluant power and go over the whole face.
Now you are ready to take your Golden Goddess look on the town. Enjoy!
