Pop of Bright Color

Bubblegum pop eye shadow shades were one of the dominant makeup looks of 2018. What better way to see off the year than with your favorite shade? New Year’s Eve is one of those occasions where you can be bold with your look without feeling self-conscious.

Choose bright pink, sky blue, lime green or ultraviolet eye shadow with a high pigment. Add a little eyeliner that stays in place and/or simply mascara for a fun and playful NYE visage.

Gorgeous Glitter

Few makeup looks are more fitting for New Year’s than glitter – and you can never have too much. Take a leaf out of Lady Gaga’s book and pack on the glittery eye shadow in silver or gold. Add stick-on stars to bring another dimension to your look. They’re reflective and so eye-catching!

If you use high quality cosmetic glue like this glitter primer by NYX, you’ll stay looking gorgeous into the early hours of 2019.

60’s-Inspired Lashes and Liner

Make a statement with a showstopper look inspired by the 1960’s mod style. This ultra-feminine look is ideal for those who want to ramp up a day look without going overboard. First, apply a foundation and powder that matches your natural skin tone. Use neutral shades of eye shadow: a pale tone to the middle of your lid and brow bone, and a mid-tone shade to your crease. Apply pencil and/or liquid eyeliner liberally to create a cat-eye flick.

Add false lashes to create a dramatic vintage doe-eyed look. Be bold and try these dramatic lashes from DYSILK.

Finish the look with a nude lip and voila! You’re ready to party.

Golden Glow

Perhaps the ultimate New Year’s Eve party look, be the center of attention with the ultimate golden glow. This timeless look is subtle but effective in creating a festive glow when the weather is gloomy. Add a touch of bronzer (like this awesome one from Physician’s Formula) to the hollows of your cheeks to create an ever-so sun kissed look – even in the depths of winter.

Use a highlighter with yellow undertones and accentuate your brow and cheek bones. Add golden eye color or pack on the powder shadow to the middle of your eyelid and into the corner of your eye.

Finish off with plenty of mascara for a perfectly golden radiance.
