Give yourself a golden glow this NYE by using gold pigmented eye shadow on the eye lids, then darken the look with smudged line on the lid with a pencil eyeliner. Finish the look with a matte nude lipstick, and for extra glow pack on some highlighter in the centre of your lips.

If you really want your makeup to pop on NYE, fill the centre of your eye with gold glitter then work around the crease with a darker shadow. Follow with a strong contour and a glossy lip to keep the attention on the eyes.

If you’re opting for more of a heavier look to really make a statement, a bold cat eye is a must. Starting from the inner corner of the eye, use a liquid eyeliner to draw a dreamy flick. To make it sharp, use a concealer to shape up the wing. For those who want to shine as bright as the fireworks on NYE, a heavy highlight is also a must to get that glow. To really finish off your glam, use a red lippy to compliment the look.

If you’re looking for more of a soft glam look this NYE, ditch the eyeliner and get ready to blend. Create an ‘ombre’ effect by using a cream shadow from the inner corner of the eye, working your way to the centre, and then begin to darken the shadow as you reach the outer corner. Make your eyes pop with finishing the look with a dab of highlight in the inner corner of your eye. Then finish the look with a pretty nude pink lip.
