New Year's Eve Makeup Inspiration From Instagram's Beauty Gurus

Girl, it's time to dazzle.

Beauty junkies, brace yourselves — New Year's Eve is a mere day away.

And that means it's time to break out your most beloved products to create the ultimate beauty look.

We've rounded up some of our favourite shimmering makeup looks from the industry's best to inspire your style for the big night ahead. From glittering eyes to glossy lips, illuminated cheeks to a whole lot of contouring, it's time to get NYE ready!

Check out some NYE makeup ideas below:

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Need we say more?

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

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

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.

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!
