There are a couple of things that come to mind when we think about NYE glam. Lots of glitters, shimmers, dewy complexions, and pigmented pouts gleaming in pictures! And while you can use all of these details to come up with a stunning NYE makeup look, there are other ways to ‘arrive’ at the party-of-the-year with your glam. How, you ask? By simply adding a pop of colour to your makeup look. Here are our five favourites that you can draw inspiration from.
- 01. The boldest red lip
- 02. Teal peepers
- 03. Silvery disco eyes
- 04. Champagne lights
- 05. All gold everything
01. The boldest red lip

Your pout for a nighttime spree should be bold, shimmery, creamy and rich — all of the characteristics that a stunning red lippie also happens to possess. Ditch the eyeshadow and let your mascara work its magic, apply white eyeliner on the waterline, brush up the brows, apply some red rouge on the apples of your cheeks and swipe on your boldest red lippie to recreate this fierce look.
Tip: Don’t have a red-hued blush? Simply dab on some red lipstick on your cheeks and blend, blend, blend for that beautiful flush of colour.
02. Teal peepers

This emerald teal hue glittery eyeshadow combined with lots of highlighter on the inner eye is absolutely stunning. We love how the rest of the makeup is kept minimal, but dewy for an all-over glow. Ditch your lipstick and swipe on some shimmery lip topper for a fuller-looking pout.
Tip: Don’t have a shimmery lip topper? Simply apply a clear lip gloss or lip balm and dab on some highlighter on the centre of your lips for a similar effect.
03. Silvery disco eyes

TBH, this is the coolest look we’ve spotted in a while. Glittery silver just screams party and we’re all for it. We love how the crease has been defined with black eyeshadow to make the glitter pop. The overall bronzy glow, bushy brows brushed upwards and 90s supermodel-inspired lips are giving us life.
04. Champagne lights

A glass of bubbly is a staple at an NYE party and rose golds are in this season. We love how the champagne tints are kept constant on the lips, lids and cheeks, creating a lovely monotone makeup moment that is so easy to pull off.
05. All gold everything

This golden makeup look is so striking, we cannot look away. Recreate this look by pairing metallic lids with a bold winged liner and shimmery gold highlighter at the top of the cheeks and bridge of the nose. A hint of gloss on the lips balances out the drama and brings the whole look together — we’re loving this!
