Christmas has come and gone, which means that now it's time to set your beauty-lovin' sights on New Year's Eve! If how you spend your holiday will set the tone for the rest of your year, then it's the perfect time to try something really exceptional! Let loose and ring in 2016 with a bold beauty look to ensure you stay fab all year long!
The key to NYE makeup
Since you'll likely be sipping champagne through the evening and stealing midnight kisses, we suggest keeping the focus of your makeup look on the eyes. This frees up the lips for all of the above, and you won't have to worry about smudging, fading, or worse, that bold red finding its way to your teeth! From graphic smoky eyes to dazzling jewels, let your eyes do the talking!
Get the Look's top 5
Here are our 5 favorite bold eye makeup looks:
A runway-approved look not to miss! Line your bottom lashlines with cosmetic jewels to widen and illuminate your eyes, while adding some serious sparkle to your festive ensemble! Just don't forget to mask any dark circles with a concealer pen first.
Graphic & Smoky
If you're a fan of the classic smoky eye, elevate your look by going graphic. Prime your eye area well to keep the shadow and liner in place, then use an eyeshadow pen like L'Oréal Paris' Smokissime to cover your lids and lower lashlines.
If you don't want to stray too far from your daily cat eye, consider switching things up by opting for a bright color! Colored eyeliner has been a huge runway trend over the last few seasons and we loved this two-tone look from NYFW to give your feline flick an upgrade!
Metallic eyeshadows are having a moment right now and there's no better time to put them in rotation than NYE! Sparkle and shine by applying a holographic shadow over your lids and right up to the brow bone. Apply the shadow wet for the most opaque finish!
Just like colored eyeliner, you can't go wrong with a colorful eyeshadow! Frame your eyes with a burst of bright color to get the perfect "halo" effect. Finish with two coats of Superstar mascara and you're ready to party!
