The best part about New Year’s Eve is you can go all out with your makeup that you normally wouldn’t wear during the other 364 days of the year!

“One thing that should be kept in mind is that your makeup should complement your outfit and not necessarily match the colour. The brighter your dress the more neutral your makeup and vice versa,” says Derrick Carberry.


If you are looking for the ultimate coverage foundation to last all night, the CATRICE HD Liquid Coverage Foundation offers a high but natural-looking coverage, while feeling extremely lightweight and best of all, will last up to 24 hours. Buff the ultra-liquid texture into the skin with a brush or beauty blender and it will feel just like a second skin. The extremely high definition finish is sure to make the skin beautifully even and camera-ready.

“My favourite eye look for New Year’s Eve is a cat eye with some glitter. First, prep your eyes with the CATRICE Eye Foundation Primer. The waterproof creamy eyeshadow base extends the durability of eye makeup and is easy to apply.

“Line the eye with CATRICE Glam & Doll Super Black Liner. Then apply glitter over the broad black liner to highlight the shape of your eyes and make them look more seductive. I love to use the CATRICE Glitterizer Mix N’ Match Eyeshadow Palette, which has four highly pigmented glitter shades with two base and two top coats.”

If you want to make a statement with your brows, precision, volume and consistent colour are a must! “CATRICE Brow Colourist Semi-Permanent Brow Mascara is a long-lasting gel texture with fibres and has a tint effect on the eyebrows. Used regularly for a period of two weeks, it gradually tints the eyebrows and gives you a fuller more natural effect.”
