45 Glamorous Makeup Ideas for New Year’s Eve

Can you believe that 2019 is almost over? We sure can’t! It only seems like yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas! But the time is soon coming, and it’s tie to get serious about it. You need an outfit, nails, and more than that, glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve. Thankfully, we’ve found a few we think you’re really going to love …

1. Black, Brown and Gold Look

If you want to know how to get the best out of your eyelash curlers, and get beautiful long lashes like you can see here, you should heat your eyelash curlers up first! We know that sounds a little odd, but just a quick blast with your hairdryer is enough to heat it up, and your curls will stay in longer when they’ve been heat-styled. It works the same way as when you curl your hair with a heated styling tool. If you want glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve that’ll really stand out, long lashes and plenty of liner is the way forward, especially when they’re up against this beautiful black, brown and gold backdrop. It’s both elegant and festive, and that’s just why we love it!

2. Glitter Eye Makeup

Glitter can be really hard to wear on your face, especially if you’re not used to wearing or applying it. That’s why we suggest having a piece of tissue paper handy, and plenty of translucent powder too. Apply the powder underneath the eyes, much in the same way as you would when ‘baking’ your concealer under your eyes, and then apply your glitter. When you dust away the loose, translucent powder, you’ll also dust away that glitter residue too.

3. Gold Eyes + Red Lips

Don’t you hate it when you go to use your favourite red lipstick and you’ve found it to be broken? There is a way that you can fix it, and it’s a great thing to know right before the festive season. We all know that means red lip season! Using a lighter (or carefully using a candle), simply melt the bottom of the broken bit, and the top of the bit left in the tube, and then affix the two together, smoothing as you go. We wore gloves to do this with yours – it does have a habit of going everywhere. You might want to have a baby wipe to hand too!

Lips: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Stalker+ translucent powder.

4. Black & Gold Eyes + Nude Lips

For a quick way of going from a regular daytime look to a nighttime look, simply add some gold glitter. You can easily use a touch of vaseline, or even lip gloss, to use as ‘glitter glue’, and in the office toilet mirror, you can dab on that gold sparkle glitter you have. Add a touch of eyeliner to the bottom lashes, and then add plenty of mascara, and you have a look that could easily take you from day to night in no time at all.

Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Ashton.

5. Burgundy Cut Crease

The cut crease is one of the must-have looks if you’re on the hunt for glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve. It’s daring, bold, and beautiful when it has been done properly, but it also has the potential to look not-very-good if you don’t blend correctly. Start with the cut crease and finish the eyelid afterwards. You can use primer and concealer to cover over any mistakes you make. It’s hard work staying inside the lines!

6. Glitter Eyes + Pink Lips

It can be very hard work, wearing glitter as an adult, and just a pinch too much can make you look more like a circus performer than a girl who just wants to see in her New Year in style. It’s a tricky trend, but there are plenty of ways in which you can rock the lock in a more adult and sophisticated way. If you’re not quite brave enough to go for a full-on glitter, opt for a shimmery, light-reflecting shade instead. It’s a baby-step you can take before you go full-glitter.

Eyes: Motives Cosmetics Safari & Sorbet palettes, glitter Diamond, gel liner in LBD, and Pixie Luxe lashes by House of Lashes.

Lips: Motives Cosmetics Violet eyeliner + Lime Crime Utopia Velvetine lipstick.

7. Dramatic Eyes

For more drama in your life, you need dramatic eyes, and for glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, you simply cannot beat them. If you’re worried about glitter overload, start with the tiniest amount of glitter on your brush, and build up from there. You can always add more, but it will be hard work taking some away if you’ve sprinkled too much of the stuff on your face. Trust me – glitter is a real pain in the backside to get rid of when you don’t actually want it around.

Products used: MAC eyeshadows in Soft Brown, Rule, Brown Script, Chrome Yellow, and Deep Damson, and Johnny Concert Cosmetics eyeshadow in Rich Bitch.

8. Blue Glitter Eye Makeup for Brown Eyes

If you’re going to rock glitter, especially a bold and brave glitter shade like this bright blue pop, make sure you stick to the one-feature rule. Pick one feature on your face, and glitter that up. Don’t go for glitter eyes AND glitter lips, because then you’re running the risk of glitter overload. And for just the slightest hint of glitter for your glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, just add the tiniest amount to the centre of your eyelid.

Add a dusting of glitter over the top, and you have perfect, and FAST, New Year’s Eve makeup! Add a dusting of glitter over the top, and you have perfect, and FAST, New Year’s Eve makeup!

10. Brown Smokey Eye + Gold Glitter Lower Lash Line

If you don’t want to rock glitter on your eyelids, how about the lower lash line instead? It’s a simple addition, and a modern way of wearing it, plus you can really go to town with the shades you choose. Add a silver glitter over whatever colour eyeshadow you like, for example. Or use gold liner and add a touch of sparkle and shimmer over the top for special effect. We love this look, how about you?

11. Gold Glitter Cut Crease

When looking at wearing glitter, make sure you’re matching your makeup to the occasion. We know that you want to look your best at all times, but your Grandma probably won’t appreciate your gold glitter cut crease half as much as your gal-pals will. At the same time, wearing glitter can be too much for a daytime look, so perhaps keep your makeup muted throughout the day, and add that glitter sparkle for the evening.

Products used: Morphe 35W Palette, theBalm Schwing liquid liner, Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy glitter liner and Lilly Ghalichi Mykonos lashes.

12. Elegant Eye Makeup for Blue Eyes

Glitter without any kind of primer or glitter glue is a really bad idea, especially around the eyes. Loose glitter is often the worst culprit for this, and it won’t be long before you find yourself with a touch of glitter in your eye, which makes your eyes run, and then your mascara will be all down your face. What a total disaster! You can always use a touch of setting spray on the applicator brush you’re using to apply the glitter, which will also help to keep it in place on your eyes. Alternatively, cheat a little with a glitter eyeliner instead. No one would ever know the difference!

13. Classic Look – Gold Eyes & Red Lips

If you don’t like loose glitter powder, but you still want to sparkle with these glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, opt for a glitter gel rather than a powder. Alternatively, mix some eyelash glue (the tiniest bit) with some glitter, and you’ll have the same kind of effect. When you go to bed at night, the glue will peel away from your face, and the glitter will peel right off with it! No more glittery pillow cases!

Lips: Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in Fire Engine.

14. Dark Gold

You can mix and match your glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve, choosing colours and shades that match your outfit. On the other hand, you can say ‘screw the rules!’, and totally spice things up. This gold eye makeup, for example, could easily be worn with a number of festive clothing shades – black, gold, red, green, purple, need we go on?

15. Grey & Silver Combo

And for when you’re not feeling gold, how about silver? Mixing a dark grey with a lighter silver shimmer or glitter powder will give you a stunning look just like this one. And the sparkle effect makes it one of the perfect glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve! You may find silver a slightly easier shade to wear, especially if you’re new to the world of metallics. It’s easier to smoke your silver up into a smokey-eye, and therefore is perfect for many different occasions – NYE being just one of them!

16. Step by Step Tutorial

In case you were wondering what the easiest way was to get a beautiful and easy makeup look for New Year’s Eve, how about this little tutorial? You can replace the shades and tones they use here with whatever shades and colours YOU want, but following the same idea – darker shades in the socket, lighter shades towards the inner corner, and you’ll look fabulous and more alert all at the same time!

Products used: Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer palette.

17. Silver Eyes + Dark Lips

It’s generally commonplace to leave your eyes relatively neutral when you have big, statement lips, but this look has been given a bit of sparkle treatment. It’s still relatively neutral, in gold, nude and beige-like tones, but the addition of that sparkle stops it from being too daytime.

Lips: ABH lip gloss in Venom.

18. Glitter Cut Crease

How steady is your hand? With the right liquid glitter eyeliner, or even some glitter glue and loose powder if you’ve brave enough, you could create glamorous makeup ideas for New Year’s Eve like this one. It’s basically another layer of eyeliner, copying the natural flow and shape of the black eyeliner, but lining the socket instead, just at the line here the dark and light shades would blend together.

19. Dramatic Eyes + Nude Lips

And when you have big statement eyes, it’s always a good idea to keep your lips neutral, especially if you’re experimenting with big and bold looks for the first time. You don’t want to go too overboard, mostly because you won’t feel confident, but also because it’ll prevent you from trying the looks again. Pick one feature on your face – eyes or lips, and go for the big statement makeup on just one of them. When you pick one, and leave the other relatively nude or neutral, you’re making your entire look much easier to wear. You can go bigger and bolder on the eyes, for example, when the lips are slightly more played down.

20. Glitter Liner + Pink Lips

Remember we said about that glitter eyeliner in the cut crease? Well, here’s a slightly different way of wearing it – adding another layer to your regular eyeliner look. It’s just the addition of an extra line of liner – it’s above the black liner that you’d naturally do on a day to day basis. Yu could do the black liner thinner than you usually would to compensate for this tiny silver liner-layer, or you can make it bigger and bolder. It’s entirely up to you.

Lips: Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick in Cassis.

21. Black Smokey Eye

Here’s a sparkly little way to liven up that black smokey eye you;d usually wear for a big night out – its a touch of gold, and a very cool touch of gold at that! It’s just the addition of an extra line of liner – it’s above the black liner that you’d naturally do on a day to day basis. You could do the black liner thinner than you usually would to compensate for this tiny silver liner-layer, or you can make it bigger and bolder. It’s entirely up to you.

22. Smokey & Glitter Eyes

And for killer eyebrows, the best thing you can do is to get them shaped professionally. We know we’re meant to say that, but once you have the basic DECENT shape formed into your brows, it’s easier to keep them maintained yourself with some tweezing and plucking here and there. It’s just the addition of an extra line of liner – it’s above the black liner that you’d naturally do on a day to day basis. You could do the black liner thinner than you usually would to compensate for this tiny silver liner-layer, or you can make it bigger and bolder. It’s entirely up to you.

23. Glitter Makeup Look for Blue Eyes

Did you know that you could easily wear green makeup when you have blue eyes? This glitter makeup look for blue eyes is a classic and simple way to wear the sparkly shade, a simple flash of colour to bring it to life, but without making it look like you’re wearing too much of a colour. It’s a simple flash of colour along the lower lash line, and although only a small touch, can make the world of difference to your makeup look. This one’s a winner for glamorous makeup ideas for New Years Eve!

25. Black Glittery Eyes

Here’s one that we think you might just get on board with – black glittery eyes. It’s like a smokey eye, but with more substance to it, and a whole load more sparkle too. Again, keeping with the ‘rules of smokey eyes’, the lips have been left relatively neutral with this look – the eyes giving you the oomph you need. The good news is that the look is super simple – a brush of an orange-brown shade for the socket, a slick of black over the lid, and then plenty of sparkle. What’s not to love?
