Ladies, have you already planned your New Year’s Eve party? If you haven’t yet, now is definitely the right time to do that. Don’t wait until you’re only a few days away! It will drive you crazy, believe me. I don’t like to look shabby during this time, because it may dictate how I’d feel the rest of the year. It’s a crazy thought, I know, but I kind of believe in such things. 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.
This Is The Sexy, Bold New Year’s Eve Makeup You Need
I know . . . I know. This New Year’s Eve makeup look seems to defy the things I don’t like for 2017. But hey, there’s always last chance, and that chance is now. Consider it as your way of saying goodbye to what’s old and excessive. This tutorial from Amys Makeup Box helps you create a sexy, sophisticated, modern, and bold look — boosting your confidence so you’ll feel ready to tackle the next 12 months.
What You Need:
- Mac Soft Ochre Paint Primer
- Too Faced Chocolate Bar White Shade
- Makeup Geek Creme Brulee
- Makeup Geek Latte
- Makeup Geek Mocha
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Blackout Shade
- False Eyelashes
- Red Lipstick
Before we proceed with the tutorial, take note this is the look we want. 🙂 Don’t let the glitter fool you, it’s actually pretty easy since you’ll just work most on the crease colors and then the lips. Don’t overdo to keep your face look fresh.
1. Prime your eyes
The first step is to prime your eyes to make sure your eye makeup stays put. It’s embarrassing if they start to come off while wearing your gorgeous dress or drinking wine or eating dinner with friends. For your base, you can use Mac Soft Ochre paint pot.
You can then add a skin tone color to the base, like White Chocolate Shade from Too Faced Chocolate Bar, 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.
For this, we’re going to use three different matte eyeshadow colors from Makeup Geek: creme brulee, latte, and mocha. The first you have to apply is creme brulee, which serves as your main transition shade, or the one that divides the glitter and the smoky eye makeup. You can make it more defined by applying several coatings.
Then you can begin working on the smoky eye effect starting with latte. Apply it above the eye crease but lower than creme brulee.
Lastly, blend Mocha from the outer corner of your eye to the crease to create more dimension.
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.
You can find a variety of glitter makeup online, but to save yourself the hassle, you can buy something glitter injections. Now, you don’t inject the glitter, but the syringe makes application easier.
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.
Don’t be scared if some of the glitters end up on your eyelashes and face. You can remove them later. To further ensure glitters don’t fall, you can coat the edges and above them with the top coat eyeliner.
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.
7. Attach eyelash extensions
With a powerful combo of glitter and smoky eyes, your lashes are easily overpowered. Grow them instantly with an eyelash extension. Choose the one you’re comfortable wearing. In case you don’t know how to attach it, here’s a tutorial and some tips.
6. Create a smoky 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.
7. 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!
