New Years Eve Makeup with CYO.

CYO makeup blogger review

If you're planning to paint the town red this New Years, and looking to sport some bangin' makeup while you're at it, CYO have most certainly got your back. 

A moderately new brand to the UK and set up by Boots (after its renowned success in the US in parent company, Walgreens Boots Alliance), it is now readily available to snap up. Even better, everything is priced under £7.50 *say what?!*, so you can look and feel great without breaking the bank.

Affordable, cruelty free and seriously good - CYO pretty much ticks all the boxes, no?

Now, on with the actual products...

With a range of 180 to browse from, you're definitely not short of choice - from contour and lip stains to palettes and brushes. The brand also pride themselves on creating high-quality makeup that can be used in a multitude of ways, something I love.

First things first; base. 
If you're gonna be making some shapes on the ol' dancefloor, you're gonna need your makeup to last. Say hello to the Matte & Blur Primer* (£5) which happens to sit perfectly underneath the Turn on the Light Illuminating Mixing Cream* (£6). 

If you're wanting a little more of a golden glow, the Bronzing Shimmer Oil* (£7) is where it's at (it also works really well when a little is dabbed on the d├ęcolletage). Last, but by no means least is the Sweep into Shape Lip, Blush & Highlight Stick* (£2.75), which pretty much does what it says on the tin - gives you glowy, radiant goodness.

Next up, it's of course the eyes.
I always steer towards fixing my brows before going into the lid/lash region, and the Frame Of Mind Brow Sculpting Pencil* (£4) is a real dream. The applicator is great for distributing product evenly, and it even comes with a spoolie on the other end (sometimes it's the simple things in life!).

For the eyelids, it's all about the Crush On Metal Metallic Eyeshadow in Lovey Dovey* (£4.50). Seriously, this shade is incredible. I raved about it back in the Summer in my Go-to Glowy Makeup post, and I still love it just as much now. The metallic, multi-dimensional finish is bloody gorgeous, and one you definitely need in your collection, stat. Lashes will flutter thanks to a few layers of the Eye High Length Mascara* (£6), before a quick layer of the Get it Bright All-in-One Brightening Pencil* in the waterline (£4) to keep you looking wide-awake throughout the eve.

It wouldn't be a finished look without the lips getting a little attention. The festive season is all about a bold lip if you ask me, and the Lot of Good Matte Lipstick in Stage Dive* (£2) suits this down to a t. Make sure you pop a good smear of lip balm on pre-application, as it's v matte (as the name would suggest!), but boy-oh-boy, the colour is something special.

If you're wanting something a little less vibrant, the Two Clever By Half Lipstick & Liner in Rainmaker* (£2.75) is a top alternative. Double-ended, you've got yourself a liner and lipstick in one uber handy product, making it perfect for top-ups on-the-go. The shade is also perfect for wear both night and day, and not too dissimilar from Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk.

If you're eager to try out CYO for yourself, the brand currently have a pretty special deal on where you can get yourself a free Skinnydip bag when spending over £8. What are you waiting for?!

Are you a fan of CYO? What makeup will you be rocking this NYE?
