New Years Eve Beauty Tutorial

We think we speak for most when we say 2020 wasn’t the year that many of us had in mind. While this New Year’s Eve will feel different and there’s no telling what the future holds, we believe it’s important to bring in 2021 with all of the positive vibes and a great makeup look. In need of some inspo? Here, we’re sharing our favorite New Year’s Eve makeup tutorials. Whether you’re attending a virtual holiday party or a socially-distant gathering, read on to find the perfect look for you.

A Classic Look

Chances are you’ll be wearing a mask at some point this holiday so it’s important to make the eyes the star of the show. We love this gold and brown smoky eye because it’s a classic look that never goes out of style. Watch Sarahy Delarosa’s step-by-step tutorial ahead. 

An Unexpected Yet Stunning Twist

This glam look is what our makeup dreams are made of. If you don’t want to do a traditional silver or gold sparkly shadow, try bronze like beauty vlogger Thania Gonzalez does here. Pair it with a matte purple shade to create an unexpected and stunning smoky eye.

An Easy Statement Look

This makeup look by beauty vlogger Sabina Hannan is pretty, monochromatic and sparkly. 

A Sparkling Cat Eye

Manny MUA reminds us that you can never go wrong with glitter and a cat eye when it comes to a New Year’s Eve slay. Watch as he creates a silver cut crease paired with a matte pink shade and a raspberry lip. For lipstick that’s mask-proof, we recommend the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Founder.

A Pop of Color

While sparkles are fun, it isn’t the only way to create a festive NYE makeup look. We love this look by Shanny Stephens which consists of a royal blue smoky eye and a glossy nude lip.
