New years Eve. It’s possibly the most hyped up night of the year and if you’re venturing out and about, the pressure to look your best is ON. But who really has the time to plan out every single detail of how you’ll wear your make-up in advance? This time of year is jam-packed with family visits, impromptu pub stop-offs and last minute plan-changes. So with all of that in mind, here are our best tips and tricks on how to ace the perfect no-fuss New Years Eve look, inspired by our favourite celebrities of course!
Lady in Red
You can’t go wrong with red in winter, whether it be your nails, lips or eyes - rouge is a definite season staple. Margot Robbie is living proof that you can definitely get away with more than one pop of festive colour. Simply pair your favourite red lipstick with a smoky scarlet eye to match. Pick an eyeshadow palette that has more than one red shade so you can add depth with a crimson shade in the crease of your eyelid. If you’re feeling extra festive, why not add a red shimmer to your lids to tie the look together.
Kim Kardashian is the Queen of a bronzed, glowing makeup, and it’s a lot easier to achieve than you think. For ease, stick to one palette for your eyes and face, using your bronzer shade as an eyeshadow base. Add a peachy, gold shimmer to your eyelids, then add some fluttery lashes, we love Eyelure Luxe Gilded Mink Lashes for a dramatic look. If you get the technique of applying lashes down, it’s the quickest way to add instant glamour to simple make-up. Bring the look together with a nude lip gloss and you’re good to go.
The Classic Flick
Soft .winged eyeliner is a an effortlessly timeless look that is foolproof for any occasion. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley pairs a classic feline flick with a natural lip and flushed cheeks - the perfect example that sometimes less is more. To create your flick, make sure your eyeliner is as precise as possible, Maybelline Hyper Precise Liquid Eyeliner has an ultra-thin felt tip - making application mess-free. If you feel you need a little extra help in getting the right ‘flick’ shape - hold something flat and straight up towards your eye and use it as a guide. Flicks on fleek? We think so!
