You’re all set on the New Year’s Eve wardrobe front, from the perfect party dress to the ideal glitzy footwear. Now it’s time to shift the focus to your New Year’s Eve makeup. (Which should be different than the holiday beauty look you plan on rocking December 24 or 25.) Sure, you could go the standard route with just a swipe of bright red lipstick or glitter eyeshadow. But where’s the fun in that?
This year, we’re all about thinking outside the box. Especially since we’ll all be celebrating over Zoom so your makeup really needs to stand out. Instead of overdosing on glitter, try concentrating the sparkle on just your eyes or your lips. You can also opt for holographic highlights for a subtler shine. When it comes to lipstick, skip your go-to lip color in favor of darker shades. Or go bold with a diffused effect. Pro tip: There’s never been a better time to try colored mascara.
