You don’t have to be a pro to create a look that gets you noticed. Prepare to ring in 2017 with our eye makeup tips for every style. Get Instagram-ready for any occasion with these easy-to-use instructions for a New Year’s Eve eye that’s just right for you.
This is a go-to application method for a reason. Make your eyes pop with a trio of complementary shadows and thin lines of black liner. Apply a neutral shadow to the lid, a darker one to the crease and a light shade to the brow bone.
Add shimmer and color this NYE with a subtle flash of glitter. Pick a glitter color the same way you would choose your eyeliner. Blues flatter brown eyes, earth tones enhance baby blues, and purple brings out the best in green eyes. Apply eyelash glue on your lash line with a fine-tipped cotton swab, and press glitter sparingly onto the glue.
Go beyond metallic shadows for a glam New Year’s Eve eye. Apply dewy foundation to the lids, and place brown eyeliner in the crease. Leave a gap in the center, and apply a thin coating of rose gold glitter with a damp brush.
If you’re glitter-phobic, take a cue from fashion designer Alexander Wang. In his last show for Balenciaga, models sported the softest touch of shimmer on the inner corners of their eyes. The result was a soft but high-impact injection of sparkle.
A Downtown Twist on Uptown Makeup
Add a funky touch to understated eyes with glitter in an unexpected color. Dip a brush in Homeoplasmine, the moisturizing pomade being hailed as a miracle beauty booster. Apply the moisturizer to the lash lines. Don’t have Homeoplasmine on hand? Try Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream or calendula oil as an alternative. Apply flakes of your boldly colored glitter over the lid and upward to the brow bone with a dense shadow brush. Go minimalist with the rest of your makeup to avoid glitter overload.
A Bolder Wing
Step up the drama with winged liner in bold color choices. Stencil your wing shape with an eye pencil in your favorite jewel tone. Trace the line with a shimmery shadow in a deeper version of the same color. Set with a dusting of glimmering powder.
Finish your look with to-die-for eyelashes. Get the ultimate in volume by attaching eyelash extensions to the real thing. Place a few millimeters apart for ultra-feminine appeal. Eyelash extensions may be the biggest confidence-boosters out there. Consider adding them to your beauty arsenal beyond New Year’s Eve.
