| Makeup

You’ve already settled on the most amazing New Year’s Eve ensemble and snagged tickets to the hottest party in the city, so now is the perfect time to start gathering inspiration for your soon-to-be flawless makeup for the evening.

If you typically play it safe in the makeup department and just a little powder and a few swipes of mascara is your go-to routine, New Year's Eve is your chance to change that; welcoming in a new year is the best time to experiment with your look and have a little fun with the contents of your makeup bag. So pour a glass of champs, blast some music in your bathroom and take some time to try out some of these gorgeous looks for the big night.

Ombre Lips
If you've never experimented with ombre locks, give the trend a try on a much smaller scale by rocking these gorgeous ombre lips for a head-turning pout.

Rose Gold Eyes With Neutral Lips
Rose gold is a prettier, softer version of regular metallic gold hues, and it pairs perfectly with a glossy, nude lip for a bronzed, glowing look in the middle of winter.

Glitter Cut Crease
Why settle for one layer of eyeliner when you can have two? Use liquid glitter liner or, if you’re brave, glitter glue and some loose powder to create the look.

Silver Eyes With Dark Lips
Gone are the days that you only could pick one dramatic makeup look -- bold eyes or bold lips. Pair them together with a beautiful burgundy lip and shimmer eyes for a matching duo that is sure to sparkle for your NYE kiss.
