It’s Bree, bitches!
Ahahahaha. Hope everyone had a fab New Year’s Eve (along with someone hot to kiss at midnight!).
I spent the night hanging out on the couch with my mom and little sister re-watching Gossip Girl Season 2 episodes. (Oh, how I love Nate Archibald!) It may not sound very glamorous or fun, but it was exactly what I wanted to be doing. (I’ve been fighting a cold and my runny nose needs constant attention from a sexy box of Kleenex.)
Had I decided to hit some New Year’s Eve parties with my friends, I would have opted for eyes like Lauren Conrad’s in the photo above. I love how she’s wearing purple eye liner on the bottom and tons of dark lashes on the top. (I would definitely NOT go for the super powdered-up skin and red lips—but the eyes are beyond pretty.)
Here’s how I would create this look:
- Line the lower lashes and waterline (three quarters of the way in) with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lust (a deep purple with subtle silver sparkle that stays on for-evaaaah!)
- Line the inner quarter of lower lashes with Anastasia Beverly Hills Shimmer Highlighter in Sand for a subtle highlighting effect. This can also be used to highlight your browbone and cupid’s bow for a drop-dead glow.
- Load on tons ofÂ mascara over MAC #6 lashes for lashes to die for.
Even though Sexy Kleenex and I partied it up on the couch last night, my sister Bailey hit the town in a jewel-toned top and side braid:
(Create Bailey’s side braid in ten seconds by lightly teasing the crown, pulling hair to the side and loosely braiding. Voila!)
And here’s the sickly me with my hilarious baby sister:
Happy New Year. You know you love me!
