Makeup Tutorial: Bold New Years Eve Look

Hi, guys! I hope you all are well today. New Years is just around the corner and I have loved seeing all the looks on social media! This is a look that I would wear to any NYE party, I know it’s a bit bold but it can be adjusted to your liking. I personally love bolder looks especially for events like this. Without further ado, here’s the tutorial for this look!

Step one: Prime your eyes using a glitter primer.

Step two: Apply a taupey brown eyeshadow to your crease.

Step three: Apply the bronze glitter to your lid. Focus the majority of the glitter/color on the lid, fade it just above the crease. To fade, carefully take your finger and dab along the sides.

Step four: Apply an iridescent glitter to the very center of the lid, fade it on the side.

Step five: Apply black eyeliner to the top and lower waterlines. Using a contour or the same taupe brown eyeshadow, apply it softly to the lower lash line and blend outward.

Step six: Apply blue mascara. You can do any color you want, including black, but I think blue looks great. Also, apply highlighter to the inner corners and brow bone.


Step seven: Finish the base makeup and the brows. I went for medium-full coverage, sculpted and glowy, and nude lips.

Finished look:



Well, I am officially in love with blue mascara and this look! It looked incredible in real life and the pictures don’t do it justice. Would you like to see any more NYE party looks?
