So it’s New Year’s Eve! Is anyone up to anything fun today/tonight? I’m going to be staying in with le boyfriend I think, but I have a general hatred towards going out on NYE as it’s always so busy and expensive and it tends to bring out the worst in people I think. I’d much rather stay in with a DVD and nibbles but if I was going out this would be the make-up that I’d wear.
Red lips are my go-to for special occasions like NYE or Christmas but to pull a red lip off you’re lips need to be in really great condition! A good lip balm is a must; I like to apply something really moisturising and nourishing like the Nivea Lip Butters that are made using Almond Oil and Shea Butter to keep the lips in tip-top condition all day/night long. I normally apply the Lip Butter quite thickly before I start doing my make-up so that it has time to fully sink in before I apply my lipstick. It leaves my lips completely hydrated and primed and makes the lipstick application really easy – there are none of those annoying dry bits left on my lips!
My lipstick of choice for this New Year’s Eve would have to be my beautiful Chanel Rouge Coco in 22 Paris, it’s the perfect shade of red for NYE – it packs a punch but there’s that little bit of pink in there to stop it being too Christmassy. I really love the finish of the Chanel Rouge Coco’s too, they’re not drying at all (especially when applied over the Nivea Lip Butter) and leave the lips with just enough of a sheen. To add a bit more of a gloss to the lips you could also add a little bit of the Lip Butter to the centre of your lips.
I’ve been using the Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream for a couple of months now and it has fast become my favourite lip balm! So much so that I’ve actually gone and lost it in one of my bags. I sent the boy in search of a replacement today and he found this super yummy sounding Vanilla and Macadamia one instead – I will report back on how it is. But the scent/flavour of the Caramel Cream Lip Butter is amazing and the balm is so lovely to use, it really does make a difference to the condition of your lips and keeps them prepared for make-up or kissing…
This year Nivea are aiming to break a world record for the longest kissing chain on Twitter. To be a part of this record attempt you need to make sure that you are following @niveauk and look out for their tweets on NYE.
Have you tried a Nivea Lip Butter yet?
What are your plans for NYE? Will you be getting all dressed up and going out or are you staying in like me?
