This look by @leighdickson isn’t for the faint of the heart, complete with chunky glitter and a dark lip to get you in the mood. Careful when trying this at home though — chunky glitter isn’t eye safe and should be used with caution.

Julia of @beautybyjulia makes a halo eye look (almost) easy. We loved this monochrome purple eye for NYE and beyond — the perfect way to spice up an everyday beat.

You can’t go wrong with a glitter liner for the glitziest night of the year. We couldn’t get enough of this look from @makeupbylonn — it’s definitely kira kira approved.
