Five Make-Up Looks to Ring in the New Year

When it comes to New Year’s Eve makeup, it’s hard to resist pulling all the glamorous stops. It’s your “go big or go home” moment, so to speak. Whether you’re attending a glamorous party or opting for a cozy gathering with friends, your makeup should rise to the occasion, especially after closing out an interesting year in beauty trends. 2023 saw us living through glazed donut nails, latte and strawberry beauty, skinny brows, and aura blush. For the last evening of 2023, most will reach for the tried-and-true smokey eye or bright lip approach. Nothing wrong with that. But if we were to listen to the trend trackers, a bolder and unique approach to your look may be more aligned with what’s in store for the first morning of 2024. From high shine to ombre lip, scroll on to discover the best fit for your New Year’s Eve glam.

HIGH SHINE

Lean into a brave new world of beauty with a high shine, chrome-like finishes, and plenty of glitter. Whether futuristic or more creature-of-the-night, we’re predicting lots of light-reflecting metallics on the big night. Interested? Take notes from the just-launched CHANEL Les Symboles Oversized Illuminating Powder in White Pearl or every single piece from Charlotte Tilbury and the rest will follow.

GRAPHIC EYE

Keep your high-precision liners nearby because NYE glam might get graphic. Striking shapes, trendy reverse liner, and bold lines draw attention to the eyes so the rest of the look can remain on the softer, neutral side. Word of warning: do try the application a few times before the clock strikes midnight, as the look requires a steady hand and unwavering commitment.
