With its over-the-top reputation and glittery, festive feel, there’s no holiday better for experimenting with your beauty look than New Year’s Eve! We love trying out new beauty styles for our NYE parties, and whether it be a glittery eye or a sophisticated deep berry lip, we’ve rounded up 5 looks that will be perfect for ringing in the new year!

We love this pairing of sheer berry lips with natural, yet polished makeup. One coat of mascara, paired with baby doll pink blush on the apples of the cheeks gives that flushed ‘just came in from the cold’ winter glow. Create texture in your hair by using a curling wand, leaving out just the bottom half inch of your strands for that cool, undone tousle. Pro tip: don’t forget your eyelash curler! It opens the eyes and finishes off any look.

A braided crown is ethereal and perfect for the holiday (not to mention a sneaky way to style second day hair!). Pair this hair with natural makeup and defined, polished brows.

A mussed side braid paired with striking red lips is a modern look for festive parties! Add some highlight to the inner corners of your eyes along with a dazzling pair of earrings to dress up this pretty look even more.

Dark burgundy lips will bring the drama to any holiday soiree. Pair this look with a subtle cat eye, a groomed, filled in brow, and a hint of blush on the apples of the cheeks for a fresh touch. The whole look is sophisticated, striking and totally on trend for NYE.

Inject some festivity into your makeup, and glam up your look with glittery eyes! If there’s a time to try out this look it’s definitely New Year’s Eve. Using a metallic cream shadow as a base, press larger shards of glitter onto the lid, and keep the lips nude to leave the focus on your dazzling eye makeup.
