Party season is looking a little different this year – your dazzling dress has taken a backseat and you’ve swapped out your high heels for silky-soft slippers. But with more free time than ever, there’s no better way to experiment with your makeup than now!
We’ve gathered the most impressive looks we could find, just for you. So read on to recreate and earn all the compliments during your virtual New Years Eve party this year!
Go Bold Or Go Home
You might be under the impression that you can’t rock a bright and bold eye at the same time as a bold lip, but you’re wrong. Take it from Rihanna, nothing says NYE glam more than a sparkling OTT eye and a bright red lip. We recommend picking out colours that compliment each other and pack on the shadow using a fluffy blending brush. If you’re looking for the perfect palette then use La Roc’s Artistry Book Palette which includes every single shade you could ever need!
Our feeds are flooded with them and they’re so on trend right now, I think it’s safe to say we’re all a fan of those big and bold bushy brows, but some of us just weren’t blessed by the brow gods and they need a little extra help. That’s why the Maybelline Tattoo Brow Pomade Pot should be first on your list for those beautifully bold brows. Use this product first to fill in the gaps where the hair isn’t so thick. After that, use the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara, this foolproof formula coats brows in rich colour, helping you achieve a sleek and structured look.
Gloss And Repeat
The 90s are officially back and glossy lips are in full force. Say goodbye to matte lipstick and hello to lip gloss! Here at FD we’re obsessing over Sosu’s Lip Gloss that comes in seven different shades, so if you’re feeling fun, you could even switch up your colours throughout the night. If you’re looking for more of a defined lip, then line your lips with a nude liner of your choice!
Colourful and outrageous eye liners having been trending all year now, so what better way to try it out than New Years Eve! This look by dmv.makeupartistry on Instagram pairs a neon green eyeliner with a toned down, natural look to really make the eyes stand out. If you’re someone that struggles with liner then position a piece of tape by your eye as a stencil, then carefully place the product along the tape, this trick will help you nail your look every single time! Rimmels Wonderswipe Liner in the shade My Bae is perfect for this look!
There really is no better time to rock all things gold than NYE. Here Gigi Hadid teams a sleek black liner with a glowing blend of warm golden tones. Pair your lids with a shimmering highlighter to really make your skin pop. Here at FD we’re obsessed with Maybelline x Gigi Hadid’s West Coast Strobing Liquid, finish your look off by adding a small amount to your cheekbones and nose.

Over the past few years brows have become more important than ever before, to the point that most of us have developed our own little routine for our brows alone. Want full, flawless brows? Here’s how to do it yourself with just a few products.
First, coat the brows and add volume by brushing through a tinted brow gel (such as the Bourjois Instant Brow Mascara). Brush upwards and smooth across for a natural look.
Next, outline the brows with a pencil (Steph loves the Yurily Waterproof Brow Pencil). Extend the tail of the brow, fill in the arch and then lightly line underneath and on top of the front of the brow.
Now it’s time to fill in the brows using the Billion Dollar Brows Mad About Brows Palette. This palette contains a mix of colours so you can create your perfect shade, and it also comes with a handy brush and spoolie. Brush the powder through the hairs to soften the look.
Brush through the product using a spoolie. This will help blend all of the products together to create a more natural finish.
Finally, grab a creamy concealer (Revlon’s Photoready Concealer is a great option) and carve out the brows using a thin brush. This will help get rid of any mistakes whilst also sharpening up any lines. Blend out with the fingers, and you’re done! Look out Cara Delevigne.’
