4 easy steps to create the perfect New Year’s Eve makeup look

Grab your shimmer and glitter, 2022 is right around the corner meaning it's time to get your party glam on! New Year’s Eve is the last party of the year, why it’s the perfect excuse to get all glammed up. We believe it’s important to bring in 2022 with all of the positive vibes and a stunning makeup look. In need for inspiration? You’re in luck, because we’re sharing our favorite New Year’s Eve makeup look that will get yourself looking seriously glam this New Year’s Eve!

1. Glowy, healthy skin

The New Year’s Eve glam look must be beautiful, glittery, and last but not least long-lasting. Primers are sort of like insurance for your makeup. Therefore, start by applying a primer to make sure that the makeup doesn’t suddenly slip off during the dinner! A good primer will keep your makeup on longer and give your skin a smooth, flawless finish. This primer The Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer by ESTÉE LAUDER is a must-have for creating a silky soft base, as it’s both oil-controlling and reduces shine.

Depending on the needs of your skin, you can apply a light foundation and concealer to cover redness, imperfections, or under-eye circles. If your skin normally is greasing during the day, then it would be a great idea to apply some powder over the t-zone to avoid your shiny forehead drawing attention away from the rest of the makeup! You can top off your face makeup with a tiny bit of pink or peach blush on your cheeks for a fresh, healthy look. Or you can go for a bronzer that can add an extra touch of glow and warmth to your face during these pale, cold months.

2. Full eyebrows

The next step is eyebrows. Well-groomed eyebrows are really important at the last party of the year, as great brows help shape and frame your face! However, not everyone is blessed with thick, strong, luscious brows – why makeup always saves the day!

Use a good eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder that matches your eyebrow color to give your eyebrows more fullness and shape. If you want natural, thick eyebrows, this brow pencil Brow Artist Designer by L'Oréal Paris is the perfect eyebrow pencil for you, as it creates a fine, soft result - without looking too intense. And especially at New Year’s Eye, your eyebrows must be on fleek, so you look perfectly put together on pictures - even those in poor lighting!

Are you struggling with messy brows? Then we highly recommend using an eyebrow gel. An eyebrow gel will help sculpt and shape the hairs into place to make sure the shape holds all day.

3. Glitter and glam eyes

You can never go wrong with glitter and shimmer when it comes to New Year’s Eve. An eye primer is a must in any makeup routine where eyeshadow is included. A primer will ensure that your eye shadow doesn’t crease, fade, or smudge off during the day. Therefore, you should start by applying a primer before creating the masterpiece on your eyes!

A glittery silver smoky eye is a classic look that never goes out of style. And this eyeshadow palette Hypnose Palette Smokey Chic by Lancôme has five of the most beautiful colors in shades of silver that are perfect for creating a sparkly New Year’s look. However, all that’s silver, glittering and eye-catching can be used on the eyes for the last party of the year!

To create a glam eye makeup look, use your brush to apply a matte brown eyeshadow on the eyelid and all the way up to the crease. You want to make sure that the color is even and intense to create a pigmented base for the rest of the eye look. Try to blend the color out so that the transition becomes smoother and more natural. Use your palette and apply a darker silver eyeshadow on the entire eyelid to create a stunning smoky effect. Dab a lighter silver eyeshadow on the center of the eyelid and a bit in the corner of the eye to complete the look.

You can choose to stop here by applying a bit of mascara. However, we see New Year’s Eve as the perfect occasion to add some gorgeousness and glam with a pair of false lashes! To complete your eye makeup, start by applying a light coat of Supreme Lash Mascara to make it easier to blend your natural lashes with the fake lashes.

Use Perfect Lash Adhesive Liner in black to make the application of fake lashes easier, as the liner works as an eyeliner and lash glue! For an elegant, festive New Year's Eve look, the lashes Viva Glam are an obvious choice. Viva Glam creates a dramatic and glamorous look, as it has a double volume effect and extra length that will make the whole party jealous!

How to apply the Perfect Lash Adhesive Liner:

  • Step 1: Shake well before use.
  • Step 2: Make sure your eye area is clean and oil-free.
  • Step 3: Apply the eyeliner along your lash line by using small strokes. We recommend 2-3 swipes, make sure to apply the liner along your lash line to ensure the edges of the lash band stay in place all day.
  • Step 4: Wait 15-30 seconds and place the Viva Glam lash onto the center of your lash line and ensure the ends.

Lash tip: If you want to make sure your lashes stay in place all day, apply a layer of the liner onto each end of your lash band before applying them on.

4. Neutral lips

As a rule of thumb, an elegant, classic makeup look implies either a focus on the eyes or the lips. Since this makeup look focuses on glitter and glam on the eyes, you should go for a neutral color on the lips to compliment the dramatic eyes.

Although the lips should be kept neutral, the choices are still many! If you want to create a plump, shiny look, go for a lip gloss that gives a bit of color and fullness. This lip gloss Natural Lip Perfector by Clarins adds a smooth touch of gloss and color that goes perfectly along with the eye makeup.

If you on the other hand prefer a matte lip look, this Liquid Matte Lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills gives a pretty, feminine color with an intense finish.
