FOTN | New Years Eve Makeup Look

New Year's Eve is almost here and, scarily, 2015 is just around the corner. My New Year's Eve is going to be pretty low-key but I plan to add a little glamour with my makeup. I got the Smashbox On The Rocks Palette (£29) for Christmas - it's a limited edition palette with 12 of their Photo Op Eye Shadows. 

I've loved wearing a lot of green hues this season so naturally I was drawn towards the 'Midnight Emerald' shade from this palette and it's the main feature of this look. Green can seem like a scary shade to wear but I think it can suit such a wide variety of skintones and it works so beautifully with brown eyes. Applying eyeshadow is not my forte so I stuck to keeping it simple so this look is easy to duplicate. I kept the rest of my makeup muted, opting for a nude (ish) brown lipstick which only softly veils my natural lip colour. I then dabbed some brown shimmery gloss over the top to add a little more glitter.
