If you’re looking to make a dramatic statement this New Year’s Eve, look no further than the glittery smokey eye. This bold look pairs intense smoky eyeshadow with a touch of glimmer and sparkle. To get this look, start by applying an eyeshadow primer to your lids.
Then, sweep on a matte black shade all over the lid and blend it out with a fluffy brush. You can then add shimmery shades in browns and golds for added drama. Finish off the look with a few coats of mascara and some false lashes for extra drama. You’ll be sure to turn heads with this statement-making look!
2) Bold Lip
When it comes to New Year’s Eve makeup, nothing screams glam quite like a bold lip. To achieve this look, choose a statement color like a bright red or deep berry. Begin by applying a lip primer for a long-lasting effect.
Then, line your lips with a matching lip liner and fill in the entire lip for more definition. Finally, apply your lipstick of choice and finish with a coat of gloss for a bit of extra shine. For an added sparkle, you can also opt for a glittery or metallic lip. With this look, you’ll be sure to make a statement all night long!
3) Cut Crease
One of the most popular looks for New Year’s Eve is the cut crease eye makeup. This look is perfect for an edgy and bold vibe, as it emphasizes and defines the eyes in an incredibly dramatic way. To create a cut crease look, start by applying a light eye shadow color all over the lid up to the crease.
Then, use a darker color to define the crease line, creating a “cut” that makes the eye appear bigger and brighter. If you really want to emphasize this look, you can add glittery shadows on top of the cut crease. Finish off the look with a few coats of mascara and some false lashes for extra drama. This look will definitely make you stand out from the crowd!
4) Dramatic Winged Liner
For a truly dramatic New Year’s Eve look, go for a dramatic winged liner! This look can be both modern and classic at the same time, depending on how you choose to do it. You can start with a soft winged liner and then add an extra flick at the end for a bolder effect.
Or, use a liquid liner to create a super sharp wing. Play around with different shades and finishes to find the perfect look for you. To finish off this look, don’t forget to curl your lashes and add a generous coat of voluminous mascara. This will ensure that your eyes pop and your dramatic winged liner will take center stage.
5) Glittery Lids
Nothing says glam quite like glittery lids! Glitter lids are the perfect way to add some sparkle to your New Year’s Eve look. You can create a subtle look by using just a hint of glitter, or go all out with a dramatic glitter eye look.
To get the perfect glittery lid look, start by priming your eyelids with an eye primer to help the glitter stay in place. Then, using an eyeshadow brush, apply a light wash of a neutral color such as champagne or taupe to your lid. Next, take a shimmery pigment or a glitter eyeshadow and apply it to your lid. If you’re going for a more subtle look, use less glitter and blend it out towards the crease. For a more dramatic look, layer on more glitter and blend it into the crease.
Once you’ve applied the glitter, use an angled brush to clean up any excess glitter around the eyes and finish off the look with mascara and eyeliner. You can also add some false lashes for extra drama! And voila, you have the perfect glam glittery lid look for New Year’s Eve!
6) Bold Brows
This year, give your look some extra oomph with bold brows. Achieving a perfectly defined, high-impact arch has never been easier! Start by brushing your brows into place with a spoolie brush and trimming any hairs that are too long. Then, use a pencil or powder to fill in sparse areas and give your arches an extra boost. For an extra dramatic look, try extending the ends of your brows slightly and curving them up a bit.
Finish off the look with a clear brow gel or brow wax to keep everything in place. With bold brows, you can’t go wrong!
Monochromatic makeup is a great way to make a statement on New Year’s Eve. This look is all about choosing one color palette and sticking to it for your eyes, lips, and cheeks. It’s best to go for a bold hue that pops against your complexion and keep the tones consistent throughout.
Try pairing a warm orange shadow with a matching blush and a tangerine lip color. Or, opt for a cool blue hued look with a navy shadow, baby pink blush, and electric blue lipstick. However you decide to pull off the monochromatic look, make sure you choose the right shades and use them sparingly. For the ultimate effect, finish with a generous dusting of shimmery highlighter to bring the look together.
8) Frosty Lids
As temperatures drop and the snow starts to fall, it’s time to embrace frosty, icy makeup looks for New Year’s Eve. Frosty lids are a beautiful look for the holidays – not only because they’re so sparkly and festive, but also because they’re surprisingly easy to achieve.
To get this look, start by priming your lids with a light eyeshadow primer to help your shadow stay in place all night long. Then, use a light shimmery eyeshadow shade (in silver, pearly white, or soft pink) to cover your entire lid. For an even more sparkly effect, layer on a glittery shade over the top of the base color – be sure to tap off the excess first before applying to avoid overdoing it.
Once you’ve applied your shadow, add some definition with a thin line of black liquid liner along your upper lash line, and finish off with a generous coat of mascara. This look is all about frosty shades, so stick with neutral shades for the rest of your face, like a light pink blush and a glossy nude lip color.
By embracing frosty lids for New Year’s Eve, you’ll be sure to sparkle like the holiday season!
9) Two-Toned Lips
Two-toned lips are the perfect way to take your New Year’s Eve makeup look to the next level! The great thing about this look is that you can customize it however you want. You can choose two lip colors that complement each other or opt for a more contrasting look.
To start, line your lips with a lipliner in a color of your choice. This will help define the shape of your lips and make sure that your lipstick lasts longer. Then, take a different lip color and fill in the outer edges of your lips. To create an ombre effect, blend the edges of both colors together with a brush or a cotton swab.
Finish off the look by applying a layer of lip gloss over top to give your lips a glossy and moisturized look. And voila, you’re all set for the night! With two-toned lips, you’ll be sure to turn heads at your New Year’s Eve party.
10) Highlight On Fleek
For a glowing and mesmerizing look for New Year’s Eve, you can’t go wrong with an illuminated complexion. To get this look, start by highlighting the high points of your face like your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow. You can use a cream or liquid formula for an everyday highlight or an all-over dewy look.
For more intensity and sparkle, use a pressed powder or loose glitter highlight on the apples of your cheeks, along the bridge of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow. When it comes to the eyes, you can use a cream or liquid formula as a lid color and apply a pressed powder or loose glitter on top for extra sparkle.
Finish off your look by adding mascara and a volumizing lip gloss to give your lips a glossy finish. With these tips and tricks, you’re sure to have a highlight on fleek look for your New Year’s Eve festivities!
