New Year's Eve Makeup: The Perfect Makeup Look to Greet 2019 New Year's Eve Makeup: The Perfect Makeup Look to Greet 2019 New Year's Eve Makeup: The Perfect Makeup Look to Greet 2019

New year, new makeup look! While some may be curating a list of New Year’s resolutions, you’ve been scouting the perfect makeup look to be sporting when the clock strikes 12. After all, every product down to your lipstick will forever be part of the history of both 2018 and 2019. There’s no need to worry, though, because we’ve got you covered with the perfect makeup look to wear when you greet the new year. Keep reading for a step-by-step tutorial.

Step #1: Perfect your base

Before getting into the details of your New Year’s Eve makeup look, you’ll want to create a flawless complexion. Start by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight (in your perfect shade), to give your skin medium coverage with a natural finish. Then, grab a full coverage concealer to perfect your base. Apply it to any spots that may need a little extra coverage, like blemishes or under your eyes.

Step #2: Define your brows

Once you have a flawless complexion, you can move onto your eye makeup. Defining your eyebrows is an essential part of any New Year’s Eve makeup look, especially when the rest of your eye makeup might overpower your natural brows. Use the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to give yourself envy-worthy brows that will complement your look. First, apply the gel to any sparse areas using the doe foot applicator. Then, use the angled brush to outline the shape of your brows and define your arch. Finish by using the included spoolie to comb through your eyebrows and give them a blended look.

Step #3: Grab your eye shadow

It’s time to apply some eye shadow! Brush the gold shade from the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette onto your eyelid for an eye-catching, gilded look. Then, drag the same shade along your lower lash line to create a smoldering effect. Before you finish with shadow, make sure to use a fluffy eye shadow brush in your crease to blend out any harsh lines.

Step #4: Line your eyes

Add some drama to your eye makeup look by lining your eyes with an eyeliner in a jewel-tone. Not sure which shade to try? We love the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Aubergine, Forest Green, and Burgundy. Apply the pencil liner to your waterline and along your upper lash line to define your eyes.

Step #5: Apply some mascara

No makeup look is complete without a few coats of mascara! Try the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara. Inspired by the makeup artist hack of bending the mascara wand for added control and ease of application, this mascara features a unique two-position wand that can be used straight or bent to customize your lash look. So cool!

Step #6: Color your pout

Hello, lipstick! When it comes to your lip makeup for New Year’s Eve, you’ll want to stick with a lip product that has a long-lasting formula in case any smooching goes down at midnight. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick. This lightweight, highly pigmented matte liquid lip ink will give your pout the no makeup feel of a stain combined with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. Not sure which of the 12 captivating shades to wear for the occasion? We’re personally fans of ending the year with a popping red lip, like I Am Worth It or I Don’t.

Step #7: Seal the deal

Of course, you’ll want your New Year’s Eve makeup look to last all night—and into the early hours of the morning. So, don’t forget to set your look with a setting spray! Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray in “X” and “T” motions over your face to do just that.

Bonus Step: Add Some Shimmer

If you want to make your New Year's Eve makeup look extra festive, add some shimmer! Top things off with a few of our holiday makeup products and you'll shine just as brightly as the Times Square ball. For glittery lashes, use the L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Glitter Mascara Top Coat. For a shimmery pout, paint your lips with the L’Oréal Colour Riche Gold Addiction Lipstick. For glowing cheeks, apply the L’Oréal Star Dust Highlighting Topper Drops.
