New Year’s Eve is all about celebrating with family and friends, but to us beauty enthusiasts, it’s also about showing off our best New Year’s makeup. Not forgetting our heavily embellished nails and a hairstyle featuring all the accessories. This is, after all, the perfect excuse to go all out with your beauty look and to try out some of the trends you’ve seen all over your social feeds during the last year.
When it comes to New Year’s makeup, it’s hard to resist the draw of your favourite red lipstick. But it’s also a great time to try invisible eyeliner (you’ll see what we mean in the gallery), neon undershadow, glitter brows (trust us, these ones look incredible) and gold foil lids. Rushed for time? We’ve got plenty of colourful looks to cater to those last-minute parties and work desk makeup painting, too.
Read on to see some of our favourite New Year’s makeup looks to inspire you on the night – and every social occasion in 2023.
1. Confetti eyes
This look created by Patrick Ta for Gigi Hadid epitomises everything we love about New Year’s glam. It features a softly bronzed lid, with floating confetti glittered gems carefully placed in a curve shape, and a bold true red lip.
