Bloggers Do New Year's Eve | Val Mercado

New Year’s Eve is approaching fast! Ready for it? If you’re still struggling to decide what look you’re going for and where you’re celebrating, we’re here to help. We’ve partnered with a few bloggers to bring you the ultimate guide to their city and their go-to look for the big night.

First up: Val Mercado (@val.mercado) from Los Angeles who knows how to add plenty of edge to Hollywood glamour.

To get her #UDAllNighter NYE look, Val used:

All Nighter Liquid Foundation
Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Eyeshadow in Blunt (light golden bronze shimmer)
Eyeshadow in Oil Slick (matte black with silver micro-glitter)
Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion (blackest black)
Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in 69 (bright red)
All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

If you’re planning on ringing in the New Year in L.A., Val recommends:
1 – Inviting your closest friends over for a New Year’s Eve countdown party; this is an intimate and relaxing way to welcome 2017.
2 – A nighttime picnic at Venice Beach; whether you’re with your significant other or maybe your best friend, a cozy picnic under the stars is the perfect way to ring in the new year.
3 – Fireworks at Santa Monica Pier; it’s a fantastic place to catch the fireworks—especially if you happen to be at the top of the famed Ferris wheel.
4 – Drinks aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach; live jazz and a spectacular view—can you ask for anything more?
5 – Countdown 2016 in San Bernardino. For those who love electronic music, tickets to this two-day extravaganza is a must.

We say go full-on Rockstar. And we have the perfect sparkly purple look for you to accomplish that. Amanda Rodriguez, our artist in residence, will show you all the steps to steal this look.

Bloggers Get Naked Using our Naked Smoky Palette

We’re ending our ongoing feature of exclusive Naked palette tutorials (starring six beauty bloggers we dig) with Naked Smoky. And we’re going out with a bang. Each blogger created her own version of a smoky eye, and each look is sultry and totally lust-worthy—from a gunmetal smoky eye to another look that took the smoky eye to the next level with a halo effect. Trust us, you’re going to want to steal all six looks. Check them out.

Bloggers Get Naked Using Our Naked2 Palette

We’re continuing our ongoing feature of exclusive Naked palette tutorials starring six super-talented beauty bloggers we invited out to our UDHQ Content Lab. This round’s focus? Our taupe-hued Naked2 palette. And based off each blogger’s final look, they did this palette good—including a dramatic, shimmery smoky eye and a Naked look that’s very ‘90s grunge. (If you want to start from the beginning, you can see the amazing looks all six bloggers created using our OG Naked palette here.)
