New Years Eve Beauty Hacks with Diet Coke & L'Oreal Paris

Did you know that a bottle of Diet Coke could help you transform your make-up look for that all important party on New Years Eve? All you need is a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke and a L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Blackbuster Intense.

Line it up
To transform your daytime eyeliner into a bold evening look, simply peel the label off your bottle of Diet Coke and turn the label upside down and with your eyeliner, mimic the dramatic black ribbon underneath the logo.

Perfectly winged eyeliner is a great way to glam up your Christmas party eyes, and it can be frustrating when it goes o ff track. To avoid any mishaps, grab your liner and simply make four small dashes along the lash line. Then carefully connect the dashes and allow to dry. Or for the perfect flick hold your Coke lid in place at the corner of your eye where you want the flick to sit and using a slim eyeliner tip trace along. The result: a smooth and subtle curved wing tip.


Plump Your Lips Up
Did you know you can make your lips look larger just by using lipstick and a Diet Coke bottle? Apply your chosen shade all over your lips, then choose a shade in the same colour family but slightly lighter. Use the bottle lid to mark where the centre third of your lips is - that’s where you need to apply the lighter shade of lippie.

Voila, a gorgeous, full festive pout.

Clever concealer

Believe it or not, you can use lipstick as an under eye concealer to neutralise dark circles - just the thing if you're partying hard this festive season. Make sure you pick the right colour to suit your skin tone – try a peachy or pinky hue if you have fair skin and an orangey-red for darker complexions.

Apply the lipstick under the eye, let it set for about a minute and then apply your usual concealer.

GET EXPERIMENTAL WITH YOUR MANI

Embrace texture

Textured nails can take your mani to the next level if you need them party-ready, but some looks require super steady hands to pull o . You can achieve a sophisticated textured look with one tool you’d never dream of: your Diet Coke bottle lid. Huh? Simply apply a base level of polish and let it touch dry.

Then lightly brush another polish into the ridges on the side of the bottle lid. Once you have done this, it’s time to get creative. You can create track marks by pressing down on the nail (try creating a track mark down the middle of your nail) or rolling the lid across the nail.

Freeze-dry your mani
Nail polish dries more quickly in cool temperatures and you can freeze-dry your polish in place in just 5 minutes. Before painting your nails, fill a bowl with ice cold water (ice cubes included).

Once you’ve painted your nails, let them air dry for 2 minutes before submerging them in the icy water for 3 minutes. Voila, your nails will be ready for their next outing.
