New Year’s Eve is one of the most festive nights of the year and the perfect occasion for going all out with your hair and makeup. Whether you’re celebrating with your nearest and dearest or attending a media-covered event, hiring a mobile makeup artist can help you take your look to the next level. Makeup can bring out the sparkle in your outfit and help you start the new year feeling confident and empowered. Here are our top five New Year’s Eve makeup looks for 2023:
- Metallic Jewel Tones
Choose deep, saturated shades of ruby, purple, sapphire, and emerald for an extra eye-catching makeup look this New Year’s Eve. These Euphoria-inspired eye looks pair well with a glossy nude lip and feathery false lashes. Try pairing complementary colours, such as orange and purple, to create blazing, sunset-inspired looks or use cool tones side-by-side for a shimmering mermaid ombre eye. You can always choose jewel-toned eyeliner for a more subtle effect!
- White Liner
White eyeliner brightens your eyes and makes them look bigger, and you can use it to create dramatic cat-eye looks perfect for New Year’s Eve. It looks best next to dark eyeshadow hues, but you can also use it on its own to create a chic graphic liner look. Pair black and white liner for contrast, or add some crystals and silver glitter over the white for festive sparkle that will catch the party lights.
- Champagne Shadow
Champagne is a soft and elegant eyeshadow colour that looks good on everyone. It’s usually a secondary shade used for brightening inner corners and brow bones, so why not make it the star of the show on New Year’s Eve? Give it depth with chocolate hues along the upper lashline or crease, or add a touch of bright, wet-look eyeshadow over the champagne shade to heighten the New Year’s drama.
- Glitter and Confetti Eye Looks
Using confetti on your eyes is the ultimate party look for New Year’s Eve. Silver or gold confetti gives natural makeup looks a more glamorous touch, and coloured confetti can make rainbow eyeshadow pop. Use glitter under your eyes with a bright sweep of colour for an understated yet party-ready look, or go for full glam with solid glitter eyelids and sparkling rhinestones.
- Gilded Naturals
If you love the no-makeup makeup trend, you might want to stick to a simple look this New Year’s Eve. Simple doesn’t mean boring – you can add a sweep of solid gold eyeliner over a creamy nude lid or give naked skin a golden glow with a bright white highlighter. Add silver to your inner corners to reflect the light and make your eyes shine, and choose a shimmering bronzer to keep golden hour going all night long.
