Need some New Year’s Eve Makeup Ideas? Maybe we can help inspire you. Many people look forward to New Year’s Eve celebrations all year long and plan their attire accordingly. And all of us makeup junkies know that a major part of our attire includes the perfect New Year’s Eve Makeup.

This year New Year’s makeup seems to focus on very sparkly eyes done up in extremely dramatic styles. All colors are a go, but gold and silver seem to be the favored choices because they go with anything. You can go with a bold metallic powder or cream eyeshadow for a bold pop of shine. Or you can go glittery by applying loose glitter or cream glitter on top of the metallic to turn up the glam. However, if you’re a performer or just want maximum diva glam, add rhinestones to the metallic glitter mix. False eyelashes can really give you a sultry dramatic look without having to add much eyeshadow or eyeliner. You can add them to super shimmery eyes or wear them with neutral or no eyeshadow.

New Year’s eve makeup doesn’t have to follow the rules, which means you can wear a bold, bright, dark or shiny lip color with your dramatic eyes. Many women love to wear red lipstick but you can wear any color, shade, texture or medium that you want. Go glittery, go nude, go rhinestone, go fluffy, go sugary, go matte, go metallic, go glassy! Mix things up and try something new and different. This is a great opportunity to live out loud and to start the New Year with a bang!
