45 Glamorous Makeup Ideas for New Year’s Eve

By  | 

11. Gold Glitter Cut Crease

When looking at wearing glitter, make sure you’re matching your makeup to the occasion. We know that you want to look your best at all times, but your Grandma probably won’t appreciate your gold glitter cut crease half as much as your gal-pals will. At the same time, wearing glitter can be too much for a daytime look, so perhaps keep your makeup muted throughout the day, and add that glitter sparkle for the evening.

Products used: Morphe 35W Palette, theBalm Schwing liquid liner, Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy glitter liner and Lilly Ghalichi Mykonos lashes.

12. Elegant Eye Makeup for Blue Eyes

Glitter without any kind of primer or glitter glue is a really bad idea, especially around the eyes. Loose glitter is often the worst culprit for this, and it won’t be long before you find yourself with a touch of glitter in your eye, which makes your eyes run, and then your mascara will be all down your face. What a total disaster! You can always use a touch of setting spray on the applicator brush you’re using to apply the glitter, which will also help to keep it in place on your eyes. Alternatively, cheat a little with a glitter eyeliner instead. No one would ever know the difference!

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!

14. Dark Gold

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. This gold eye makeup, for example, could easily be worn with a number of festive clothing shades – black, gold, red, green, purple, need we go on?

15. Grey & Silver Combo

And for when you’re not feeling gold, how about silver? Mixing a dark grey with a lighter silver shimmer or glitter powder will give you a stunning look just like this one. And the sparkle effect makes it one of the perfect glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve! You may find silver a slightly easier shade to wear, especially if you’re new to the world of metallics. It’s easier to smoke your silver up into a smokey-eye, and therefore is perfect for many different occasions – NYE being just one of them!

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.

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.
