Party Tips: 4 New Year's Eve Makeup Looks

  • 5 min read


New Year's Eve doesn't always mean a big party, it can sometimes mean a night with just you and your boo or a girls night. No matter what your plans, you want to look your best so we've curated four looks that are perfect for all kinds of NYE festivities.

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!

  1. Start by applying our Beyond Matte Liquid Foundation in your shade using the Blending/Contouring Brush.
  2. Dust on Amazing Base using Chisel Powder Brush for added coverage.
  3. Spritz your face with POMMISST Hydration Spray to lock in the minerals.
  4. Apply Active Light concealer to the under eyes, tops of cheeks, down the nose and on the middle of the chin to highlight and illuminate your face.
  5. Dust 24-Karat Gold Dust onto the cheeks and décolletage using the White Fan Brush for added illumination.
  6. Apply the GreatShape Brow Kit in your shade to the brows.
  7. Prime the eyes with Gold Smooth Affair for Eyes using the Camouflage Brush.
  8. Using the Ravishing eye shadow triple, apply the shimmery plum to the outer half of the eye using the Crease Brush. Blend it from the lash line to the outer brow bone.
  9. Next, apply the shimmery plum brown to the outer upper corner of the eye using the Crease Brush and the lower lash line using the Smudge Brush.
  10. Then, apply the shimmery rose gold to the middle of the eyelid using the Large Shader Brush. For a more dramatic look, swap this shade for more of the 24-Karat Gold Dust.
  11. Line the upper lash line with Onyx Mystikol using the Bent Liner brush.
  12. Finish the eyes with lash conditioner and mascara.
  13. Complete your look by lining the lips with CrimsonLip Pencil and finishing with Gwen Triple Luxe Lipstick.

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.

  1. Start by applying a pea-sized amount of Smooth Affair Facial Primer to your face.
  2. Using the Blending Brush, apply Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer in your shade.
  3. Set and add coverage by applying Amazing Base in your shade to the face with the Chisel Powder Brush. Spritz with D20 Hydration Spray to lock in the minerals.
  4. Conceal dark circles by applying Circle\Delete Concealer to the under eyes using the Camouflage Brush.
  5. Apply So Bronze-1 to the outer parameter of the face using the Chisel Powder Brush.
  6. Define the cheeks by applying Clearly Pink PurePressed Blush to the apples of the cheeks using the White Fan Brush.
  7. Apply a Retractable Brow Pencil of your choice to the eyebrows.
  8. Apply the matte gold from Golden Peach PurePressed Eye Shadow Duo to the entire lid using the Large Shader Brush and blend the color into the crease.
  9. Sweep the shimmery coral into the crease using the Crease Brush and to the lower lash line using the Smudge Brush.
  10. Make a thick line of the Dark Topaz Mystikol on the outer corner of the eye and smudge well using the Smudge Brush.
  11. Finish the eyes with lash conditioner and mascara.
  12. Complete your look with CravingLip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss.
