New Years Eve Makeup Look

There are so many things to love about New Year’s Eve — making resolutions for the upcoming year, deciding on party plans, and flaunting gorgeous New Year’s Eve makeup looks. There’s no denying that the celebration calls for pairing seasonal looks and coordinating face makeup, and it’s a great time to try something sparkly or eye-catching. Get in on the fun and dive into these New Year’s Eve makeup looks.

 

1. Gold Eyeliner

As far as New Year’s Eve colors go, it doesn’t get more festive than a metallic hue and nothing says a celebration like solid gold. Swap out your black eyeliner for a gold alternative, like the L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Easy-Glide Signature Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof in Gold Velvet, to line your upper and lower lash line.

2. Jewel-Toned Smokey Eye

New Year’s Eve is the perfect occasion to wear a classic eye makeup look with a fancy twist. While a traditional smokey eye is already stunning, the addition of a jewel-toned eyeshadow takes it to the holiday supreme. The star of this multifaceted look is a gemstone inspired eye makeup palette, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eyeshadow in Avant Garde Azure or Violet Amour.


3. Flushed Cheeks 

From bright pink and orange to berry and red-orange shades, a blush with a burst of color will amp up your complexion and create a radiant look that will turn heads. Try it for yourself by sweeping your cheeks with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Satin Blush with Camellia Oil in Marigold. This creamy, satin blush applies effortlessly without caking or drying and instantly gives your cheeks a healthy, radiant glow.

 

4. Sparkling Champagne Eyeshadow

When it comes to chic but simple celebration looks, sparkly champagne makeup certainly deserves a toast. Whether you’re rocking frosted cheekbones or just a splash of cava-colored eyeshadow on your lids, a bubbly-inspired beauty look won’t ever go flat. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Little Beige Dress for a high pigmented shimmery look.

5. Red Lips

A red pout is a classic for a reason, and the luxurious shade will give your lips a brilliant hue that’s right on-trend for the festivities. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Intense Volume Matte Lipstick in Le Rouge Avant-Garde, and pair it with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner in In-Matte-Uated With You to make sure your lip color lasts all night long.


6. Shimmery Inner Corners

For a minimal but impactful New Year’s Eve eye makeup look, try adding a pop of shine onto your inner corner for a chic accent. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in String of Pearls on the inner corners of your eyes to create major impact. You can pair the shimmer with a contrasting shade like purple or pink for contrast or wear it solo to really let it shine. 


7. Siren Eye

Instead of sailing into the New Year with the same winged eyeliner look, soar into 2023 with a creative spin and the siren eye. Apply a dark shadow like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Noir Cest Noir around your top and bottom water lines and concentrate the shadow upwards for the siren look. Next, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Eyeliner and trace a curved cat eye along your upper lash line to enhance the sultry look before coating your top and bottom lashes with a few generous swipes of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara.

 

8. Glass Lips

Shiny glass lips will fit right in at any New Year’s Eve party. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise™ Lip and Cheek Tint to your lips, then top with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump in Mirror. Finish with L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Impertinent to give you lips a wash of color while still maintaining the glass-like look.


9. Glittery Cat Eye

While you’re updating classic looks, let this bold and shimmery spin on the cat eye elevate your style for the new year. To create, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner to draw a flawless winged line, and then place glitter or makeup gems inside the lines to embellish your cat eye. Top with the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara.

10. Purple Pout

Your mind might be set on hues of red and green for the holidays, but never underestimate the power of purple. The regal color looks impressive on lids, liner and especially lips. Purple lipstick is the perfect way to upgrade your New Year’s Eve makeup look, offering a variety of shades that anyone can sport. Give this winter hue a try and add the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Exuberant to your holiday lip collection.
