By  | 

13. Classic Look – Gold Eyes & Red Lips

If you don’t like loose glitter powder, but you still want to sparkle with these glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, opt for a glitter gel rather than a powder. Alternatively, mix some eyelash glue (the tiniest bit) with some glitter, and you’ll have the same kind of effect.

When you go to bed at night, the glue will peel away from your face, and the glitter will peel right off with it! No more glittery pillow cases!

You can mix and match your glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, choosing colours and shades that match your outfit. On the other hand, you can say ‘screw the rules!’, and totally spice things up.

Products used: Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer palette.

17. Silver Eyes + Dark Lips

It’s generally commonplace to leave your eyes relatively neutral when you have big, statement lips, but this look has been given a bit of sparkle treatment.

It’s still relatively neutral, in gold, nude and beige-like tones, but the addition of that sparkle stops it from being too daytime.

Lips: ABH lip gloss in Venom.

18. Glitter Cut Crease

How steady is your hand? With the right liquid glitter eyeliner, or even some glitter glue and loose powder if you’ve brave enough, you could create glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve like this one.

It’s basically another layer of eyeliner, copying the natural flow and shape of the black eyeliner, but lining the socket instead, just at the line here the dark and light shades would blend together.

Products used: Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon palette in Almond Truffle, Satin Sheets and Divinity, theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette in Matt Reed, Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter in Glam Rock, and House of Lashes Iconic lashes. 

19. Dramatic Eyes + Nude Lips

And when you have big statement eyes, it’s always a good idea to keep your lips neutral, especially if you’re experimenting with big and bold looks for the first time. You don’t want to go too overboard, mostly because you won’t feel confident, but also because it’ll prevent you from trying the looks again.

Pick one feature on your face – eyes or lips, and go for the big statement makeup on just one of them. When you pick one, and leave the other relatively nude or neutral, you’re making your entire look much easier to wear. You can go bigger and bolder on the eyes, for example, when the lips are slightly more played down.

20. Glitter Liner + Pink Lips

Remember we said about that glitter eyeliner in the cut crease? Well, here’s a slightly different way of wearing it – adding another layer to your regular eyeliner look.

It’s just the addition of an extra line of liner – it’s above the black liner that you’d naturally do on a day to day basis. Yu could do the black liner thinner than you usually would to compensate for this tiny silver liner-layer, or you can make it bigger and bolder. It’s entirely up to you.

And for killer eyebrows, the best thing you can do is to get them shaped professionally. We know we’re meant to say that, but once you have the basic DECENT shape formed into your brows, it’s easier to keep them maintained yourself with some tweezing and plucking here and there.
