Diva New Year 2015: 
Makeup, Nails, Thanks 2014  
 
 The countdown to 2015 has begun Divas! As we all prepare for our New Years Eve parties, I thought I would put a little post together to help you out on makeup and nail looks. Do you have any exciting plans? New Years Eve is always a great time to go glitter crazy and whip out your signature dance moves and no one will judge you for it. I am looking forward to seeing the spectacular fireworks displays the most. I too want to reflect back on this year 2014 and give thanks for the many blessings that I have received. 2014 was a year filled with many surprises and adventures for me.

But first let me take a few selfies... ;-D



New Years Makeup

For this look I did a smokey silver eye using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I dusted Booty Call on my brow bone for mega brow shine. I placed Tease on my upper crease just below my brow bone as a warm taupe transitioning colour. I created a cut crease using the black eyeshadow Blackout and blended it all in. On my lids I packed on the silver shadow Verve and used the grey shadow Pistol to blend the silver and black shadow into one another towards the end of my lid. I then blended and blended some more getting rid of any harsh lines. I used my Super Skinny NYX black marker to create a winged liner and my favourite L'oreal Miss Manga mascara for dramatic lashes. I softened my smokey eyes with a soft pink lip shade using my Too Faced Melted Marshmallow lipstick and NYX Butter gloss in Peaches and Cream over it for some shine. I used a soft pink blush from my BH Cosmetics That's Heart palette on my cheeks.




New Years Nails

 I continued the black and silver theme onto my nails. I used the nail polishes Tip Top in Black Forest on my thumb, pinky finger and as an overlay on my index finger. On my ring finger is Tip Top Cream Puff and I used Black Forest to write 2015 with a toothpick. On my index and middle fingers I have Nails Inc Foil Kings Road as a base colour. The middle Finger is topped by the silver Mavala glitter polish in Sparkling Silver. I used silver rhinestones on my nails for decoration as well.



Thank you 2014...

* I am grateful for all the amazing overseas adventures I have had this year. I travelled to the Middle East twice and had so much fun.

* I am grateful for all the work I did. As you know I love performing and it is not easy being a freelance actress and singer. I praise God for providing work that I love.

* I am grateful for my family and all the blessings they have received. Particularly my sister for reaching her dreams and doing her PHD in Europe.

* I am thankful for all the friendships I made in 2014. Whether in my work, on my travels or online with all my fellow beauty addict ladies ;-)

* I am truly thankful for life, love and growth. Even though this year came with some challenges, I can say with a happy heart that I leave 2014 with no regrets.





Wishing all you Divas a very Happy New Year!!! 
See you in 2015. 
Lots of love
Xxxx

Beautiful look Desle! That Too Faced Marshmallow looks so good on you! I see you mixed it with NYX. I've got to try that, because it didn't turn up well on me. LOL I love the sparkle of your nails. Perfect NYE look.

Such a wonderful post, Diva Desle! It's wonderful how you bring forth a spirit of thankfulness in your beauty blog, because having a thankful attitude in life is part of what makes us beautiful, I believe. You are truly beautiful. I love your New Year's Eve makeup, too. :-)
