Makeup Ideas for New Year’s 2017.Can you believe that 2016 is almost over? We sure can’t! It only seems like yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas 2017! 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!
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.
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.
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.
7. DRAMATIC EYES
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.
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.
9. BLACK SMOKEY EYE WITH A POP OF GLITTER
With this look, the inner and outer corners of the eyes have been smoked-up, and the centre has been left that beautiful gold tone. 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?
