It’s almost a new year once again—where did the time go? While you may be wrapped up in making plans for how you’ll spend the last night of 2019—and the first moments of 2020—there’s one thing you may be overlooking: your New Year’s makeup look! After all, you wouldn’t want to end and start a year looking anything less than fabulous and on-trend, would you? To make picking your New Year’s Eve makeup look easier, we’ve compiled a list of seven makeup ideas that are worthy of ringing in the new year (and posting on social media). From statement lip makeup to sparkling eyes, read on for all the inspo.
Let’s start with the classics, shall we? Red lips will always be a top pick for the holidays, and your New Year’s Eve makeup look is no exception. To ring in 2020, opt for a glossy, sheer finish for your red lip. Swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red to prep your pout for a kiss at midnight.
While we’ll always be a fan of traditional black eyeliner, New Year’s is the perfect time to switch things up. As far as colors go, it doesn’t get more festive than a metallic hue—we’re especially fans of gold! Swap out your black eyeliner for a gold alternative, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Gold, to line your lower lash line. For more ideas, here’s How to Wear Gold Eyeliner.
Another classic option, a smoky eye is a foolproof eye makeup look to ring in the new year. Though be warned: The smokey eye is not a one-size-fits-all deal. Rather, it’ll have to be customized based on your eye shape! For a step-by-step tutorial, head over to our article, The Perfect Smokey Eye for Every Eye Shape.
Have you considered making your face makeup the center of your look? If not, we highly suggest you do. More specifically, a glowing, highlighted complexion! Rather than reaching for your usual highlighter, take cues from the disco ball hanging in NYC and opt for a metallic highlight instead. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Highlighter in Rose Quartz onto your cheekbones, tip of your nose, cupid’s bow, and arches for skin that beams.
It’s clear we have a soft spot for metallic hues when it comes to New Year’s Eve makeup, and for good reason. Our next makeup look worth trying? Silver, metallic eye shadow. Sweep the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil over your lids, blending the color into your crease. Swipe on a few coats of mascara to complete the look and let your silver lids be the star of the show!
We’ve touched on gold eye makeup, but what about gold lips? If a classic red pout isn’t your thing, consider veering toward the trendier side of things with a pout colored in gold. Rather than rock a solid gold lip (which you totally could pull off), top your lips in a sheer gold lip gloss. Swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Lip Gloss in Mirrored to do just that.
You didn’t think we could possibly leave glitter makeup looks off this list, did you? For an iconic New Year’s Eve eye makeup look, apply a pop of shine onto your inner corners with a glitter eye shadow. You can have your pick of the shade, though we’re partial to a bright, silver glitter pigment.
