The Grand Ibiza New Years Day Party is one of my favourite events of the year in Cape Town. Its in a beautiful location by the sea nd everyone always looks fabulous and tanned as its the hight of summer here. So I went back for a bright lip and bronzed shimmery skin and a shimmer on the eyes. So here is what I used:

NY Day Look

The Prep:  I wanted to have a luminous glow on my skin so it was so important to get the skincare element right. I absolutely love this cream and I included it in my best beauty finds for 2013 the Nars Luminous Moisture Cream. It feels amazing on the skin and its not rich so skin is left looking luminous rather than too shiney and then I applied the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow for that extra glow on the skin.

The Skin: To continue with the luminosity I went with the Nars Sheer Glow foundation I went in a darker shade than I would normally use but I have been tanning a lot and my skin is always darker than my face and I was going for the bronzed look. For the contour I used the new Stila Sweet Treat Bronzing Powder launching here in SA for Valentine’s. I applied the bronzer in all the areas the sun would normally hit and contoured under my cheek bones, for the highlight I used one of my favourites the Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Lightscapade. For my cheeks I wanted a shimmer to go with the bronze skin so I went with the Nars blush in Luster its a beautiful peach shimmer and to finish off the skin I applied Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot on my T-Zone as it wa so hot yesterday and I didn’t want all my make up coming off.

The Eyes: I kept it really simple and applied with a flat my brush my fav Maybeline Colour Tattoo 24HR in Bad to The Bronze and for my lashes I applied another fav the Elizabeth Arden Lash Enhancing Mascara.

The Lips: I discovered Kiko watching Ruth from A Model Recomends so I got my mum to buy me some bits and pieces. The lipstick I am wearing is a Kiko Luscious Cream lipstick in Passionate Fire Red which is a great budget buy sadly not available in SA yet.

So all the festivities for now are over until next week when I am going to the Queens Plate for the first time and will do a Get Ready with me video.

Thanks Shahnaz. x
