A New Year’s Eve makeup looks is the perfect way to welcome 2018! Anyway, one of the things you have to prepare for is your look. Because our goal is to welcome the year with a bang, here’s a New Years Eve makeup tutorial featuring gold, red, and glitter.
New Year’s Eve Makeup That’s Bold And Glittery
The New Year’s Eve makeup look is an important way to welcome the new chapter of our lives. Besides, this is the last time to rock a 2017 makeup look, right? Next year, there are new trends to look forward too. To wrap the year’s fondest and craziest memories, this gold glitter makeup tutorial is perfect for everyone who wants to seize the moment and enjoy New Year’s Eve.
What You Need:
- Eye primer
- White shade eyeshadow
- Nude, brown and mocha eyeshadow
- False Eyelashes
- Red Lipstick
1. Prime Your Eyes
The first step is to prime your eyes to make sure your eye makeup stays put. You can then add a skin tone color to the base to lock in your primer. This is also to make sure that the eyeshadow colors you’ll use will blend easier. You can use a brush for both, or you can use your fingers. Pick whatever makes you comfortable.
2. Create The Cut Crease Effect
We’re ready to apply makeup. For this New Years Eve makeup tutorial, we’re going to create a cut crease, which sort of creates two different looks for the eyes: glitter and smoky. It makes a beautiful eye makeup contrast and balances the glitter out. Blend all these eyeshadow shades evenly.
3. Create A V
A V-shaped eyeliner makeup adds more definition to your eyes. You can use Urban Decay Naked 2 Blackout Shade, which is matte black (close to charcoal color). To apply, make use of an eyeliner pencil brush. To fix the eye makeup mess, use a makeup wipe.
4. Put Your Glitters
Now you’re done with the smoky eye, it’s time to add some glitters! But before that, apply a glitter top coat liner, which works like a glue to keep your glitter together. After applying the top coat glitter eyeliner, add glitters. You can use your fingers, the applicator, or a brush. You may also work in sections or apply the glitter all over your lower eye crease.
You can use this kind of eyeshadow, too.
5. Apply Eyeliner
We’re almost done! An eyeshadow makeup as lovely as this will never be complete without a winged-eye effect, so grab your favorite liquid eyeliner and apply it to the edges of your V-shaped makeup.
6. Attach False Eyelashes
With a powerful combo of glitter and smoky eyes, your lashes are easily overpowered. Grow them instantly with an eyelash extension or false eyelashes. Choose the one you’re comfortable wearing. In case you don’t know how to attach it, here’s a tutorial and some tips.
7. Create A Smokey Eye Effect Underneath The Eyes
Complete the smoky eye look by applying dark makeup underneath the eyes as well. To avoid looking as if you’ve been beaten black and blue, place it on the corners or edges only.
8. Put On Red Lipstick
You can actually stop with the eye makeup, but since we’re all about being bold and sexy, finish your New Years Eve makeup with a bold red lipstick!
