6 New Year’s Eve Beauty Looks We Love And How To Achieve Them

@natalieoffduty

 

It’s nearly New Year’s Eve and if there’s one thing we all want, it’s to look absolutely fabulous! And who can blame us? We all want to enter the New Year in style! You could have a great outfit ready to go but in order to complete the look, you need your makeup not only to match but to enhance your outfit! I know, stress huh?! But achieving this completed look can be a lot easier said than done and no one wants to get it wrong like I did five years ago with black eyeshadow!! So, worry no longer because here are the best beauty looks that are easy to pull off this NYE:

1. Strong & edgy

 

@ImaxTree

New Year is the time of year where you can be brave and OTT with your makeup, but that doesn’t mean you have to cover yourself with glitter from head to toe. For those of you that like to keep it classical try a strong lip and let it do all the talking for you. Pair this with a bit of dark definiton on your eyes and you’ve nailed the look!

2. Pretty in nude

@percemakin

Nude has been a big trend this year and so many makeup brands are bringing out their own versions. And if you’re obsessed with it then this is the look you should go for it for NYE. If you don’t like an overpowering lip then this is the one for you. Blend with some lighter shades with your eyeshadow, keeping it light and creamy and add a a white liner to your bottom lash to make your eyes look bigger and more enticing!

3. Rocker chic 

@ImaxTree

We all party on NYE even if it’s just a little bit. And when it comes to our makeup some of us like to take a little inspo from Kate Moss! Go bold with the eyes (gold colors work really well) and don’t be afraid to do the unusual, because, in true Kate Moss style, it works! Mix in golds and browns for your eyeshadow using your darker color for your underline and pair it with a light gloss on your lips!

4. A touch of sparkle

@ITG

Some of us, including me, like to get a little glittery this time of year. For me, it’s the one time of year I can really do it and get away with it (regarding festivals of course). It doesn’t have to be OTT as some newer trends do it a little more subtly. And it really works! It’s definitely a fun look and one that will help you stand out!

5. The classic

One of my favorites; the classic red lip. As long as you have one your look is undoubtedly strong and sexy! However, be careful not to do too much with your eyes, you want to keep them as light as possible. Even if you are to do a wing, keep it simple and lessen your mascara. You’ll be leading with your lips… not that there’s anything wrong with that!

6. The 90s girl

@glossier

Recently trends see us diving back in time and pulling off our favorite looks from across the decades. And the 90s is one trend none of us like to miss out on, especially if you’re a 90s kid! It’s all about simple, understated touches that make you look twice. You can achieve this with a touch of glitter on your eyelids and a bright, glossy lip!
