Makeup ideas in New Year's eve3:40 AM
Whether you're dancing the night away at a New Year’s Eve ball, attending a party down the street, or hosting a kid-friendly evening, your makeup should say, "I'm celebrating!"
Look your best for the biggest night of the year! Now, I’m not suggesting you do your makeup so differently that you don’t look or feel like yourself – but adding a few key elements will take your everyday look to a party look in no time.
Shiny Red Lips
Embrace the New Year with a bold new hue. Taylor Swift's makeup artist Lorrie Turk keeps the eyes simple—save for many coats of lush mascara and a bit of icy shadow—to prevent the star from looking overdone.
If you're wearing a metallic dress, why not highlight your face and eyes with similar moody tones?
Peachy Glow and Lush Lashes
You don't need pounds of makeup to make a statement. In fact, pastels are a fresh, unexpected choice during winter months.
Red lips are are the obvious choice with LDB's. Makeup artist Hugh Vanngo added an element of surprise by giving Camilla Belle a striking pink lip.
Dramatic & Bold Smokey Eye
If you love something ultra smokey with lots of black, false lashes, and smoldering, this all-black smokey eye may be your cup of tea.
Silvers and grays are what I identify the “original” smokey eye with — this is just one take on the traditional smokey eye. Pair it with a lighter lip to keep all the attention on the eyes.
Festive Gold & Cranberry
Great for a brighter, more colorful look with still a little smokey cranberry edge. I always associate gold and red with the holiday season (both for Christmas and NYE, actually), so I love variations on this theme for eyeshadow, too.
Neutral with a Kick
I love neutrals — I love barely there shades that really flatter peepers, like this soft, brighter beige kind of look. This look is also perfect for pairing with bolder lips!
