New Year's Eve is your night to sparkle. Play up your eyes with galactic bold colours to create a magnifying look that will shine brighter than the ball drop.


Keep It Classic

A classic red lip is timeless and will never go out of style — no matter the year. For a night of champagne popping, make sure you don a long-lasting matte lip to avoid fading and smudging.


Embrace The Dark Side


As you approach midnight, let your beauty look get a whole lot darker. A deep plum lip is the perfect way to keep things chic on NYE. And don't be afraid to match your eyeshadow to your pout!

Go Glossy Nude


From the runway to the streets, the nude lip was everywhere this year. For New Year's Eve, add a pop of gloss to your lips to create a shimmering nude that is sure to make a subtle statement.

Do The Reverse Cat Eye


If you're a fan of eyeliner (who isn't?), shake things up on Dec 31st by lining your bottom waterline for that extra bit of drama.

Shine Bright

There's no doubt Tom Pecheux's makeup for Chanel's Metiers D'Art show was stunning. Recreate the glittering and detailed eye for New Year's Eve and channel your inner Bella Hadid.

Go For Gold (001)

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on famed makeup artist Pat McGrath's Gold 001 (we're totally jealous), you need, repeat, NEED to sport the liquid gold this New Year's Eve. Create gold lips, eyes and even cheeks to become a golden goddess.

Contour And Highlight


Need we say more?

Keep Your Brow Game Strong

Pay homage to one of 2015's best phrases with a bold, sculpted and dark brow. Because as they say, eyebrows on fleek.

Dare To Illuminate


(Creamy) highlighted cheeks and eyes are the perfect way to illuminate the night.

Lift Those Lashes


It's all about the lashes. Whether your rocking extensions, falsies or your natural set on the big night, the key is to always keep your eyelashes long, lifted and dark. Find the perfect mascara to create volume and throw a spoolie in your evening clutch just incase you need to lightly comb through any lash clumps.

Embrace Your Inner Catwoman


You've been practicing all year, now it's time to show the world what you've got with that cat eye. Exaggerate the wing as much as you need, because hey, you might as well end 2015 off with a bang!
