Ring in the New Year With One of These Glam, Glossy Eye LooksDecember 22, 2021
Eyeshadow is the staple of basically every glam makeup look, so why not take it up a notch for one of the most fabulous days of the year? Swap out your go-to glittery eyeshadow this New Year’s Eve for something a little more sleek. Meet the glossy eye, a high-shine alternative that makes pigment pop in an unexpected way. Still need convincing? Check out the most inspo-worthy glossy eye makeup looks we could find on Instagram, ahead.
Manifest your best and brightest year yet by recreating this ultra-shimmery gold eye look. After drawing on and buffing out a wing, pat some of the Valentino Dreamdust Glitter Eyeshadow in Go for Gold onto your lids, using either your finger or a wet makeup brush, and seal it in with a high-shine lip gloss.
Afraid to commit to eyelids covered in gloss? Don’t worry, lean into the trend in a subtle way with a sleek-looking crease. Simply sweep an eyeshadow stick – we love the IT Cosmetics Superhero No-Tug Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Pearl Lavender – along your crease, starting in the inner corner. Then, tap a non-sticky gloss onto the crease with your finger.
