New Year's Eve Makeup Looks to Kick Off 2022 Flawlessly

Whether you’re going out this New Year’s and looking for a beat that will hold up all night or are hoping to switch up your regular staying-in makeup, look no further. New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to experiment with a new style and put your best foot forward. To me, NYE just screams fabulousness and glam! Here are some New Year’s Eve makeup ideas to enter the New Year flawlessly!

01. Smokey, Cool-Toned Eye 

You can’t go wrong with a smokey cool-toned eyeshadow look. The Huda Beauty Wild Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette – Jaguar ($30) is perfect for smokey, unforgettable glam. For another option (who doesn’t love options), try the Colourpop Stone Cold Fox Eyeshadow Palette ($34 $26). Something about New Years is just so cool, isn’t it?

02. Graphic Eyeliner

Graphic eyeliner has been all the rage lately. Whether you go with a color or choose a more traditional white or black eyeliner, creating a fun design will help elevate your New Year’s Eve makeup look. The Norvina Chroma Stix Makeup Pencils ($18) from Anastasia Beverly Hills can help you create anything you imagine.

03. Liquid Eyeshadow

Who doesn’t want sparkling eyeshadow in seconds? A metallic liquid shadow can go a long way, especially for a night where you want to look put together without spending hours getting ready. The E.L.F. Liquid Metallic Eyeshadow ($5) is a great affordable option for all of your NYE metallic eyeshadow dreams.

04. Out of this World Highlight

No perfect NYE look can be finished without a glowing highlight to pull it all together. Add a little of the R.E.M. Beauty Interstellar Highlighter Topper ($22) in the shade Miss Mercury to achieve highlight perfection into the new year and beyond.

05. Glitter Everywhere

Who doesn’t want to sparkle on the year’s most shiny night? Add glitter to your eyes, face, hair, and wherever else you’d like with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Glitter ($15) in shade Crystal Cave!

06. Full Coverage Matte

A stunning flawless matte look is pretty much always the way to go — especially on a night where you want your makeup lasting past midnight. Use the Born This Way Foundation ($40) from Too Faced to achieve a flawless matte look that will hold together as long as you need it to. To set your matte look, use the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder ($8) and you’re good to party all night long!

07. Light & Glossy (The No-Makeup Makeup)

Alternatively, you may not want to go the matte route and desire to keep it more natural instead. If that sounds like you, try the ColourPop Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer ($14 $11) for a light and glowing finish. To complete the look, add some of the Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm ($18) from Rare Beauty. It’s the perfect combination between a gloss and lip balm, trust me!

08. Simple with a Stunning Red Lip

Keep it classy as you enter the new year with a stunning red lip and minimal (but still flawless) face and eye makeup. Use the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color ($25) to make sure your lips stay red until the ball drops!

09. Euphoric Look with Jewels

Experiment to your heart’s desire with jewels and make even the simplest eyeshadow look a little more special this holiday. Create a Euphoria inspired look with the ColourPop Mixed Crystal Face Jewels Set ($8) and go into the New Year looking flawless.

10. Classy Black Cat Eye & Lashes

Last but not least, a simple yet classic eye look with an intensely black eyeliner can go a long way. The Le Liner De CHANEL Liquid Eyeliner ($35) is perfect for the job. And don’t forget to complete your cat eye with some lashes! These Lilly Lashes ($12) will have you entering the New Year feeling fierce!

You can’t go wrong with any of the NYE makeup looks listed above. However you choose to enter the New Year, do so responsibly, safely, and looking flawlessly! Happy New Year!
