  • 3 min read


It's that time again! We're two weeks away from a new year, and we're ready to choose our New Year's Eve makeup looks, outfit and, yes, party plans. Since Thanksgiving, we've asked ourselves "how is this year almost over?" with both excitement and a hint of anxiety, but we're putting the shock aside and we're ready to ring in the New Year in style. Some of us are staying in for a quiet night, others are going out with friends, and the rest of us are doing something in between the two. new years eve party makeup looks While outfit planning is at the top of our list of things to do, we keep checking the beauty inspiration gallery to get ideas for our New Year's Eve makeup looks. Check out the below looks to get makeup inspiration for any New Year's Eve celebration you may attend this year.

Our Favorite New Year's Makeup Looks

Hey, Party Girl!

Are you ready to be the belle of the New Year's Eve ball (or at least of your local bar)? So are we, and that's why 24-Karat Gold Dust is essential to our look. There's something about a New Year's Eve party that makes us want to shine brighter than a disco ball. While we can't dip ourselves in a tub of liquid gold (ouch!), we can sport some strategically placed gold dust. Apply it to your eyelids, cheekbones, brow bones and anywhere else that needs a little luminosity. You can also mix 24-Karat Gold Dust in your body lotion for an all-over glow!


24-Karat Gold Dust $14.00

Smooth Affair for Eyes $32.00

Moonglow Bronzer $44.00

Quiet Night In

If your New Year's Eve plan is to stay home with your family, we're with you on that, too! Sometimes, we just want to celebrate the beginning of a new year sipping champagne, cuddling with our loved ones, and wearing pajamas. Complement your night-in look with makeup that is just as simple...Pure & Simple that is. With our Pure & Simple Makeup Kit, you can create a natural, New Year's Eve makeup look that gives you a hint of color for an effortless look.

Pure & Simple Makeup Kit $33.00

The Hostess with the Mostest

When hosting a party at your home, the last thing you want to think about is reapplying your makeup. You're likely too worried about refilling the snacks, ensuring everyone has a drink and enjoying conversations with your nearest and dearest. That's why Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss is our go-to makeup product to wear when it's our turn to be the hostess. Once you apply this high-pigment lip color you can have as many glasses of the bubbly as you'd like without reapplying. For a matte finish, only wear the lip stain and for a little shine, apply the gloss on top.


Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss $32.00

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes Eye Shadow Kit $59.00

Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream $48.00

Watching the Ball Drop

If you're heading to New York City to watch the ball drop this year, we have a few tips for you.
  1. Wear water-resistant eyeliner and mascara. It will be cold and windy, so there's a good chance you'll spend the night blotting watery eyes. That's why Mystikol Eyeliner and PureLash Mascara are necessities.
  2. Go bold! There's no better time to wear your most glamorous smokey eye than celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square.
  3. Grab a moisturizing lip color like PlayOn Lip Crayon. Dry lips are a no-no for midnight kisses.


PureLash Mascara $22.00

Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner $24.00

PlayOn Lip Crayon $18.00
