2022 is coming to a close, meaning New Year’s will be here before we know it. Whether you are going to a party or staying at home, New Year’s is an excellent excuse to get all glammed up. If you’re searching for some makeup ideas, we’ve rounded up some looks that are sure to smash on New Year’s.
Sultry Smoky Eye
If you prefer a simple yet elegant look, go for a dark, matte smoky eye. Using a neutral-colored eyeshadow palette, pick a rich shade to apply to your eyes. Pair it with a light-colored nude lip and have a sexy, glammed look. Shades of brown, grey, and black add depth and drama – an excellent look for the start of the new year.
Bold and dramatic, wearing disco-blue makeup is a beautiful choice for New Year’s Eve. Using a bright blue eyeshadow like Urban Decay’s Deep Blue Shimmer, dab the pigment onto your lids. Then, using an eyeshadow brush, blend it onto your inner eye corners, up into your eye crease, and onto the outer corners of your lids. Don’t worry about keeping everything too straight and perfect – this look is fun!
If New Year’s Eve/Day could be represented by one thing, glitter would be pretty high on the list. It perfectly pairs with the celebratory, festive vibe, so why not use it as part of your makeup look? Using a smooth, liquid eyeshadow as your base, blend the eyeshadow all over your eyelids. Then, take your makeup brush, sprinkle some chunky glitter dots on top of it, and apply it all over your eyelids before everything dries. Viola!
Silver & White Wings
Instead of the usual black wings, try silver or white instead. Apply a neutral eyeshadow all over your lids as a base, then use a slightly darker shade and apply it onto (and just above) your eye crease for dimension. Then take white or silver eyeliner and draw your wing from the center of your lid toward the end of your brow. Finish with a nice coat of mascara, and you’re ready to ring in the new year.
