Fun Makeup Looks to Try This New Year's Eve


Fun Makeup Looks to Try This New Year's Eve

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of New Year's Eve? Glitter? Parties? Fireworks? New beginnings? A midnight kiss? In preparation of the celebratory night, I tend to think about which makeup look I'm going to try. I always find myself on Tumblr and Pinterest when looking for inspiration, whether it be for an outfit, makeup idea, or photoshoot concept. Below I have shared my favorite makeup looks found on these sites. I hope they inspire you to get in front of your mirror and try out some fun, new looks for this New Year's Eve!

For those who love a monochromatic lid...

We suggest trying:

Sugarpill Cosmetics’ highly pigmented shadows, which you can buy here! Sworn by the most well-known drag queens, these colors stay on flawlessly all day (and night) long. 

ColourPop’s numerous Pressed Powder Shadows. These eyeshadows are high quality at a low cost. Ranging from vibrant mattes to the prettiest shimmers, ColourPop is dependable and affordable. Check out their products here!

One of the countless Morphe palettes, which you can purchase here. This brand is already incredibly popular, rightfully so. Their palettes have a ton of shades for a reasonable price, with high pigmentation and a range of colors to choose from. The possibilities are endless!  


For those who prefer to play with a range of colors...

We suggest trying:  

Butter London’s Oil Slick Glazen™ Eye Gloss. Winner of Allure’s Best of Beauty Award in 2016, this glossy shadow acts as a sparkling chameleon on the lids. Bring a wow factor to your makeup look with this stunning product! 

A vibrant rainbow palette, such as OPV Beauty’s Rainbow Splash Eyeshadow Palette. These radiant colors can be used to create the perfect, bold New Year’s Eve look, complete with a few shimmery shades. 

The Violet Voss Sugar Crystals Eyeshadow Palette is filled with a range of shadows, from vibrants to shimmers, to pastels. Let your imagination run wild with this fun palette and show it off this New Year’s Eve.

For those who aren’t afraid of a little glitter...


We suggest trying:

Shimmy Shadows by ISH. These shadows are highly pigmented and give off the prettiest reflection of sparkle. There are a variety of colors to choose from, but they’re $20 per shadow, so choose wisely! (It will be so worth it, though!)

Stila’s Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows. These shadows allow you to create sparkly yet clean, precise makeup looks. With a wide range of colors, you can vamp up any dramatic look with this product. 

The Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter Gel by Urban Decay. This product means business when it comes to all things glitter. With six different shades of shimmery combinations, you can’t go wrong when adding this product to your New Year’s Eye look. Swipe it across the cheeks for an unexpected pop or build it up on your lids for a bold eye look.

And we can’t neglect our neutral-toned lovers…

We suggest trying:

Morphe’s 35O Nature Glow Artistry Palette, which can be purchased here! Morphe has created a stunning mix of mattes and shimmers in this neutral palette, resulting in the perfect go-to palette for any desired look. I always end up grabbing this palette when wanting to wear eyeshadow!

The deliciously scented Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette from Too Faced. Not only does it smell like chocolate, but this palette contains the prettiest neutrals and chocolate related shades. There is truly nothing like this palette!

Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eyeshadow. With 23 options to choose from, I’m confident that you’ll find one (or more) that you’ll fall in love with. With this cream stick eyeshadow, you can create more artistic and precise makeup looks. This 4.5-star product truly gets the job done!  

I have been trying to, but I can’t seem to pick a favorite look of mine from this selection. Which look was your favorite? What do you think you will be wearing for New Year’s Eve? Comment below and let us know everything about your New Year’s Eve plans. We can’t wait to hear from you!
