My New Years Eve Makeup Ideas:

Hello everyone! I hope that you are all having a nice and relaxing Winter break.
Today we are going to talk about my favorite lips and eye makeup combo for these festive nights and, especially, for NYE.

I like that this makeup is shiny but light, and also not too dark or glitter-ish. So, if you fancy an easy look that will shimmer and glimmer under the 1000 lights of your NYE party, I think you will love this idea.

The three products that I would recommend are all from NYX Cosmetics (I really loved using them for a special holiday night out makeup).

• NYX Lingerie Eye Tint in 10 “ Fame & Fortune” and in 07 “Whimsy”.

Whether you’re having a low-key and relaxing dinner with your dearest friends or spending hours dancing, laughing and having fun at the coolest party in town, you surely want to look amazing for this particular night. They say that you have to wear something red on NYE for good luck, so, aside from your lingerie, why not to be bold and use a red-ish metallic eye shadow? NYX Lingerie Eye Tint in n.07Whimsy” is perfect. This metallic and shiny shade will make your eyes truly pop!

You can also add a little hint of sparkle with this other beautiful shade, number 10 “Fame & Fortune”. It’s a cool metallic silver with a delicate pearl finish.

A weightless creamy eye shadow formula, NYX Lingerie Eye Tint provides a wonderful shade to your eyes, also this is a great highly pigmented, long lasting and easy to blend product. The real “must have” for NYX!

You can use them together to build a gorgeous eyes makeup, or you can blend them easily on a traditional powder eye shadow for an additional sparkling touch; your choice!

• You can find them in every NYX Cosmetics store or here.

The NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in 02 “ Embellishment”.

So, now that you have done your eyes with bold and shiny colors, you have to be light on your lips. I would recommend using a nude lipstick, such as NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in 02Embellishment”. This is a weightless liquid lipstick with a matte finish and a great long lasting formula (it lasts for several hours even if you’ll eat a slice of Panettone or drink a glass of sparkling Prosecco – as we do here in Italy to celebrate New Year at midnight).

This shade has a nude tone with a cool pink undertone, beautiful and easy to wear with every skin tone.

The texture of this product is a little bit drying, so when or if you will have to refresh your makeup throughout the night, I would suggest to use a good lip balm underneath, otherwise this lipstick will dry your lips.

• You can find this liquid lipstick in every NYX Cosmetics store or here.

That’s all for this year, thank you so much for reading my blog ’til the end of 2016! I hope you will follow me and my posts even during 2017. Have a wonderful, safe and fun NYE everyone.

1- Let’s begin with some Home Decor Ideas:

Here and here are the links to a glass and a pitcher with a stars pattern (You can also find them in every H&M store).

Here is the link (You can also find it in every Maison Du Monde store).

– This tapestry is the perfect gift to buy for someone who loves to travel, and a great wall decor idea to give personality to a sad, white wall in a college dorm room. It’s a beautiful picture of a lovely and peaceful Alpine lake in Italy.

2- Let’s move onto my favorite part, Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas:

– A cute phone case for your sister or your best friend is always a lovely Christmas gift with a little outlay. This gift is an original design and you will also support an indie artist by buying it.


Here is one of my favorites at the MO.

– These pouches are a cool gift idea for every makeup addicted or every stationery addicted girl. You can use them to keep your pencils and pens or your everyday makeup products and brushes; they will fit perfectly and stylishly in your purse.

– Last but not least, Christmas without a scented candle shouldn’t exist, right? So here you go, a Christmas Yankee Candle tart infused with a very special holiday flavor.


Here is the one I love the most at the MO.

3 – And then some amazing Style Gift Ideas:

– I love this unique and modern earlobe earrings from Swarovski. They are perfect to give an original touch to every type of look, from classic to modern to young; so basically they are perfect for everyone

– Your girlfriend/friend loves unicorns? If the answer is yes then this classic blue cardigan with unicorn elbow patch is the best Christmas gift to put under the tree.


Here is the link.

– I’ve decided to end this part of my post with a cool and trendy piece; an amazing printed bomber. It’s not exactly cheap, but it’s really beautiful and a great present idea. Plus, the design is gorgeous.


Here is the link.

4 – Last little section, Let’s Nerd Out Gift Ideas:

 – For a lot of people, a Winter break is not a good one without Christmas decoration and a marathon of their favorite TV show. So, a T-shirt inspired by his/her favorite tv show is an amazing gift idea for your very nerd/geek friend.

This one is perfect.

– Hardcore fan of Star Wars saga? So, this lovely funko of C3PO is the perfect gift for him/her. Plus, the new Star Wars spin-off movie is in theaters now… right on time! 


You can buy it here.

– Another great present idea is the new Final Fantasy XV game. It’s just came out this month… there is no need for further explanations, right?! Your friend/boyfriend is going to love this gift.

2- Let’s move onto my favorite part; Skincare Gift Ideas:

• This is a great moisturizer and an amazing primer all in one product. I like to use it under my makeup, especially when I am in a hurry and I need an all in one type of product as a moisturizer and a makeup base. Hangover from Too Faced is the one! It’s a smoothing and at the same time hydrating lotion/cream; the perfect combo for the freezing winter weather. A terrific gift!


Here is my review.

• The Revitalizing Oil for face, body and hair by Darphin is awesome and has a really high moisturizing powers for the girls that suffer from dry skin/hair. It’s another perfect and also multipurpose gift.


Here you can read my review and see the product.

• Last, but surely not least, the most important product in everyone skincare routine, a gentle but perfect cleanser for an intense purification of your skin; the amazing LRP Effaclar H cleanser. It’s a mousse/cream that takes off all the dirt on your skin, the Gift with a capital “G” for your friend that doesn’t know anything about taking care properly of her/his skin!


Here is my photos and review.

3- And then I will finishing this post with some lovely Stationery Gift Idea:

• I really love using cute pens to write down my post ideas, appointments and deadlines on my Filofax so I’ve scoured almost all Amazon stationery pages to find this Okray Swarovsky Pens with all the colors in one box. It’s amazing, isn’t it?! 😉 I mean, all the colors in one box?! OMG!!!


You can find it here

• For a year now I keep trying to learn how to write in a better and flourish way, and I keep failing every single time. So, this Christmas I was thinking to buy a calligraphy book that has at the end a little sketchbook for practicing your writing style at home.


You can find it here

• In the end I thought about a beautiful spiral notebook where you can write down every single one of your amazing thoughts and ideas. This notebook would also make a great stocking filler item or a great part of a bigger gift.


You can find it here

So, see you next week with some other ideas for your Holidays/Christmas shopping!
