Glitter and gold is in right now. The perfect way to ring in the New Year is with a little bit of bling because what screams glitz and glam better than gold and glitter than a combination of both? That said, I created an easy New Years Eve makeup look using the Lorac Pro Palette and LIT Cosmetics glitter. The combination of the two creates the most Festive Golden Glitter New Years Eve Makeup Look that will be sure to dazzle plenty while you’re out having fun.

What will be your New Years Eve Makeup Look?
Disclosure: CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps were provided to me for free as a gift at an event. All opinions expressed are 100% honest and are my own.
I attended the Getting Gorgeous with CVS Beauty event earlier this month where I spun the wheel and won the CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps. For the last few weeks I’ve been giving myself at-home gel manicures, so winning this was exciting.
The CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps comes with the following:
– 30 foil wraps (removed 3 complete gel manicure sets)
Normally I’d soak a cotton pad or ball in acetone, and cut small squares of aluminum foil to wrap my nails, then wait 15 minutes to remove the bubbled gel polish with an orange/manicure stick. The CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps made it easier since it cut out the steps of me having to cut foil, and hold my cotton pad in place. It would have been nice if it included the nail file/emery board, and acetone as well. I guess for $7.99 that’s what you get. Maybe in the future they will include those items?
During the event, the CVS beauty representative stated that CVS Regular Nail Polish remover works well in removing gel polish. Coincidentally, I had the jar in my desk drawer and never thought to use it for that purpose until after she mentioned it. Thank you! I tried it the other day, and it worked probably better than wrapping my nails in foil. The polish bubbled up quicker, thus coming off easier and faster. No more sitting there waiting 10-15 minutes for your gel polish to come off!
Would I recommend the CVS Gel Nail Polish Remover Wraps?
Since I had a better experience with the CVS Regular Nail Polish remover, I would recommend that first. The CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps does free up time, in that you don’t have to sit and cut foil. You can also move around and do things with the CVS Gel Polish Remover Wraps on your fingers. With using the CVS Regular Nail Polish remover, you would have to be stationary, sitting with your finger in the jar, soaking each finger one at a time.
Spring is here, but, you really can’t tell with this weather. That doesn’t mean I can’t bring in some spring brights, which would help brighten up the gloomy days we’ve been having in NYC. I created a simple, fun green eye for spring using Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics ‘Bitmap’ loose pigment. I remember when OCC released ‘bitmap‘, it used to be my joint! I love this green! Plus, green is pantone’s color of the year, so I killed two birds with one stone with this look. Also, I believe either on instagram or twitter someone asked me to start doing spring makeup tutorials, so here’s one of many to come.
Last week I posted about using SnapGuide for my Tutorial Tuesday posts, so I’m going to continue to use it until I have time to actually shoot and edit a video. Please be patient.
If you’re wondering what I’m wearing on my lip, it’s an Ellis Faas Milky Lips color in a burnt orange shade (L204). It’s neutral enough to pair with a fun green eye for spring, don’t you think? Plus, orange lippies are the business right now.
My sister told me about an iPhone app called Snapguide (available for iPad, too). Snapguide is a free app that allows you to create pictorial or video “how-to guides” to share with the Snapguide community. There are many topics covered on Snapguide, one of them being beauty. I only recently started playing around with it, and demonstrated how to create a work safe purple smoky eye. The guide is user-friendly, too! Going forward, I will use this app for my ‘Tutorial Tuesday’ posts.
So far, I like Snapguide because it allows you to add the list of tools, products or ingredients you need to create whatever it is you’re creating. It also allows you to add step-by-step instructions, and as I mentioned before, videos and pictures. This is a great app for beauty bloggers like me.
Here’s my Snapguide on how to create a Work Safe Purple Smoky Eye
Lately, I’ve been using MAC Fig1 eyeshadow. I used that eyeshadow in this tutorial. If you didn’t know, I love me some purple. Did you see I added some purple to my hair? Check my instagram MakeupbyKimPorter for photos.
Please let me know if you think this is helpful, and if you think I should continue to use Snapguide for my Tutorial Tuesday posts.
Do you use Snapguide? What do you think about it?
