Best New Year’s Eve Makeup Tips for Beginners

Whether you’re planning on having a few drinks with friends or hitting up a high-profile party this coming New Year’s Eve, one fact remains: you want to look and feel amazing! But what if you’re not exactly well versed when it comes to makeup? Will you have to beg your best friend to handle your New Year’s Eve makeup? While there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help, learning how to pull off your own fabulous look can be empowering and fun! To make things easier, we’ve got some beginners’ makeup tips that are perfect for New Year’s Eve.

Go Bold, But Be Careful to Even Out Skin Tone

For many, a New Year’s Eve party is the perfect time to go bold with your makeup choices—especially when it comes to eye and lip color. And while we encourage you to have fun and do something bold, there are some “rules” worth following, too. If you’re wanting to go with a bold red or crimson lip color, for example, make sure that you also take the time to even out your skin tone with a quality foundation. Otherwise, the red hues in your lip color will also draw out imperfections, such as blemishes and pimples, on your face. And when evening out your skin tone with foundation, be sure to blend it not just on your face, but down your neckline as well.

Complement a Metallic Outfit With Some Shimmer

Metallics are popular this time of year, so if you’re planning on rocking a metallic top or dress to an upcoming New Year’s Eve party, why not take your look to the next level? Pair your flashy outfit with a little bit of shimmer when it comes to your makeup. Specifically, a shimmery or metallic eye shadow can be a great way to polish off your look and draw attention to your eyes. If you decide to go with shimmery eye color, however, try to keep the rest of your makeup (including lip color) more subdued; you don’t want to overdo it!

Apply Primer to Avoid Dreaded Raccoon Eyes

If you’re planning on doing a little partying and dancing at your New Year’s Eve party (we hope you are!), one of the makeup faux pas you’ll want to be prepared for is that of raccoon eyes. These happen when your mascara and/or eyeliner run, which can happen when you’ve been sweating during a night of dancing! Fortunately, these are pretty easy to combat; simply be sure to apply an even layer of primer around your eyes before you do your eye makeup. And if you’re going to wear mascara, make sure it’s a waterproof brand. All of this will help to prevent smudges (and embarrassment).

You don’t have to be a pro to pull off stylish and trendy makeup on New Year’s Eve. Simply follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to looking amazing for your upcoming New Year’s Eve gathering. Have fun and happy new year!
