The count down to 2014 has begun! In less than 24 hours it will be the new year and what better time to wear a pop of colour on your eyes (or should I say pops of colours!) than now?
If you're heading out to watch the fireworks or going to a New Year's Eve party (not that you need an excuse to rock colourful eyes!), this pink, blue and green eye makeup will look absolutely stunning. It's a little different as far as NYE makeup looks go (no glitter in sight) but why not go for something bright and colourful? It is the beginning of a new year after all!
Taken By Surprise Tutorial - New Years Eve Eye Makeup
1. Since we're going to be working with a lot of coloured eye shadows in this look, it's important to start the process with an eyeshadow primer. This will help the colours look lovely and vibrant, as well as keep them that way as you welcome the new year!

5. To add some pizazz (I just love that word), take a small amount of an electric lime green eyeshadow and a fluffy blending brush and apply to the crease. Use gentle back and forth motions (so your brush is just touching the skin) to blend in the colour. And I forgot to take a photo of this step, oopsy daisy!

7. Okay, it's New Years, I couldn't help but add a little metallic colour in there! With a true gold eyeshadow and a liner brush, line your lower lash line.

9. My favourite part–liquid eyeliner! Line your top lash line, keeping the line as thin, even and close to your lashes as possible. Then create a small wing at the outer corner for a subtle cat eye effect.

And that's it!
