New Year’s Eve makeup trends


New Year’s Eve is a great time to play up your features with dramatic makeup. On this special and exciting night, anything goes! For those inspired by the 70’s makeup in “American Hustle,” there is dramatic contouring, bright blush, dark lips and three-color eyeshadow.

If you’re looking for modern-day glamour, with glittery eyelids and Barbie-pink lips, YouTube sensation Nicole Guerriero will show you the way. She recommends that you wear red to welcome the New Year – for good luck! If you decide to wear red on your lips, do it flawlessly, like Leina (YouTube’s MakeupByLeinaBaaaby).

To contour your face like a pro, learn tips and tricks from Wayne Goss.

Planning to party like a rock star? Beauty guru Shannon (known on YouTube as Shaaanxo) shares her tips for waterproof/sweatproof makeup. She also shows off a striking “bombshell” look, with sparkling, shimmery eyelids. Metallics are a major trend for 2014 - not only for your clothes, but also for the makeup! Make sure to seal your glitter to avoid fallout, using LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base, Lit Clear Glitter Adhesive or a similar product.

For a golden, lit-from-within look, follow the lead of Michelle Phan.

If you prefer silver tones on your eyelids, watch Jaclyn Hill’s New Year’s Eve makeup tutorial.
