New Year’s Makeup Ideas

Hi, everyone! Hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas! It feels like there’s always something to celebrate this time of the year – and we are not complaining. Can you believe that New Year’s is less than a week away?! It’s crazy!

That’s why we decided to put together an inspiration board for a few New Year’s looks to try. We know a few people love to add glitter to their looks (and what better day, right?), others like to intensify the look with a dramatic eye, and others stick to the classic cat eye paired with red lips.

Regardless of your preference, here are a few ideas to try!

This classic smokey eye is perfect for some drama! Just remember to keep the lips neutral to balance your look.

This look is perfect for those who are uncomfortable with a lot of glitter. This glitter pen work beautifully as a liner to add just the right pop of glitter to your look, leaving the rest of the lid pretty neutral.

This look is great to add a pop of gold and just a dusting of glitter on the inner corner. Neutral lovers – this is the look for you! Just remember to keep the rest of the eye look matte, and to define your crease with a matte brown shade – this will give your look some depth while still bringing out the beautiful gold color.

This is one of our favorite looks. The lid is covered in a very light shimmery shade with a dust of glitter, and the outer V is defined with a darker shadow (you can go for a olive, brown or black). The same shade is used very lightly along the crease for some definition. Lips here are bare – the eyes are the star of the show, but you can always go for a nude with a coral undertone. Try to opt for a matte lip for the same effect.

 

Well, there you go! A few options for your New Year’s look – no matter where you go for the evening! Let us know if you’d like to see a tutorial on any of those!

And Happy Holidays!
