Check out the step-by-step tutorial below to learn how to nail this beautiful NYE look.
What You’ll Need:
- Eye primer
- Pink highlighting pencil
- Neutral eye shadow
- Brown eye shadow
- Metallic grey eye shadow
- White eye shadow
- Clear brow gel
- Eye makeup remover
- Eye Glitter
- Liquid Liner
- Black Mascara
You’ll start by using an eye primer base over both lids. This helps the eye shadow adhere so you can keep your rock star look all night.
Next, grab your pink highlighting pencil and follow the bottom curve of your eyebrows. This helps open up the eyes and will give your brows more definition. You will also apply it in the inside corner of the eye and across the lid.
Blend it in by using your finger.
Apply a neutral eye shadow all over the lid by tapping the brush. Tapping helps the shadow last and stick to the primer.
Now you will apply a neutral brown to the crease of the eye. Keep your eyes open so you can make sure you are only applying across the crease.
Take a firm, short-haired brush, dip it into your metallic grey eye shadow and carefully tap across the lid. Don’t worry if the shadow gets a little messy, you’ll wipe it off afterwards with some oil-free makeup remover.
Next, apply white eye shadow to the inner corners of the eyes. Although we are going for a smokey look, the white shadow will brighten the eyes.
Take a clear brow gel to a q-tip and tap it on top of the shadow you just applied. This will keep the glitter you’ll be applying in the next step in place.
Tap your glitter on top of the gel. Black and silver work great, but we also recommend trying a cobalt glue or gold for your NYE look.
Apply a gel liner to your bottom waterline. Take your sparkly black shadow and apply it over the gel liner. This helps keep the liner from fading.
Dip a cue tip into non-oily eye makeup remover and drag it underneath the eye to pick up any loose shadow or glitter.
You can also drag the cue tip under the eye and up at the end corners to create a cat-eye effect.
Apply a little mascara before gluing down your fake eyelashes.
We recommend applying the glue to the lashes using a small brush. Wait about 15 seconds before applying to allow the glue to become tacky.
Lastly, apply liquid liner across the top lid.
Now you’re ready to bring the new year in in style. Get it, girl!
