It’s the one night of the year when there’s no such thing as OTT. Throw caution to the wind, abandon makeup rules and go for no-holds-barred glamour. We asked Fiona Neale, CEO/Founder of Issada for her tips on how to steal the show this New Year’s Eve.
Fiona’s Top 3 Things to Be this NYE
- Be photo ready
You are probably going to take a lot of photos on New Year’s Eve so make sure you’re camera-ready! That means, priming your skin, applying a flawless foundation finish, setting with powder, and contouring and highlighting your face to sculpt your features. Any kind of dimension disappears slightly with flash photography, so make sure you go a little further with your contouring than you would for a regular night out, to ensure your bone structure still stands out! False lashes are also a must, to make sure your eyes still pop under harsh photo conditions. Our NYE pick is Issada Luxe Lashes in Glitz – flutter these and heads will turn!
- Be daring
Go for colour! A pop of neon on lips and/or nails is the perfect way to get the party started. Issada’s Ultimate Lipliners are your insurance against wearing off, transfer, feathering, bleeding – AND they’re kiss-proof! Trace your lip border and then colour in the entire lip – this will withstand canapés and cocktails with just minimal (if any) touch ups. Try Hazard or Ribbon for a pop of ultra-bright colour. For even more of a jolt, apply a neon lipstick over the top for high-wattage glam. Try Issada Neon Lipstick in Bold, Burst, or Intense.
- Be radiant
Metallic textures are perfect for standing out on NYE. Try Issada’s Ultimate Eyeliners in Diamond, Cleopatra, Occult, Libido or Shiver– these ultra soft mineral gel pencils will glide across lids for a completely opaque bold metallic coverage that won’t smudge or fade while dancing the night away. A metallic nail will shimmer in the moonlight and act as an accessory to your outfit. Try Issada 5-free Nail Polish in Alexis.
