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 makeup. 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. Instead of overdosing on glitter, try concentrating the sparkle on just your eyes, cheeks or lips. You can also opt for holographic highlights for a subtler shine. And when it comes to lipstick, skip your go-to lip color in favor of darker shades or a gilded effect.

Check out the makeup ideas above that are sure to make an impression as you count down to 2020.
