Just a couple of days left to steal inspiration and ideas for the big party between the years! New Year’s Eve is closing in, and it’s closing in sooooo fast! What will you be wearing? How about the shoes? the nails? The eyes?
I’m particularly minimalistic about makeup (for someone who has a passion for fashion – wink) but I do pay extra attention to my eyes! Whenever I wear makeup (or extra special makeup), it’s all about the eyes.
For those of you, who just like me, focus on the eyes makeup, here’s a handpicked collection of essentially glitter glam makeup for New Year’s Eve (and pretty much every fancy party you’re feeling up to)!

Starry Eyes Makeup
for the most special night of the year, fantastic makeup such as the one below is most welcome! Sparkly stars above or below the eyes, up on the cheeks make for a very festive and season-appropriate beauty approach.
For those of us, who just like me, aren’t proficient in makeup but still want to achieve this special look, know that these special stars, much like many other compact shapes (such as sequins or maxi glitter particles) are available for purchase as decals and it’s said that they are guaranteed to last for many hours.
Sequined Eyes Makeup
sequins, to me, are like giant particles of glitter. And I LOVE glitter! On my nails, in my wardrobe and around my eyes! The first examples below come straight from the catwalk but nothing stops us from replicating the look for that awesome New Year’s Eve party! (or any other special party!)
For sequins and rhinestones or any other fancy shiny tiny shape you’ll want to enhance your party makeup, the false eyelashes glue is perfect and you might even have it in your beauty case! (and just in case you’re wondering what kind of sequins fit best around the eyes, just use normal sequins, the same as the one for garments trimmings.)
Glitter Eyes Makeup
big or small shiny magic particles of glitter will up any makeup to the art status without any other effort besides putting in on and get the party started! Those tiny particles will capture and reflect the light and make a real star out of you with the littlest effort!

You can find glitter in beauty stores or boutiques selling party costumes or carnival costumes and applying it on doesn’t need special techniques. Just have fun and go with the flow!
Feathered Eyes Makeup
demands for a more special set of skills if you want to excel in the art of the feathered eyes. However, should you have a special look in mind and the right feathers, you can always use the same eyelashes glue to achieve the makeup you have in mind!
I’m sure there are other ways to transform your makeup into something party-xtraordinary, but as I said before, I’m just an amateur with a fondness for glitter. I hope the few looks I gathered here were inspiring and helped you with a couple of ideas for that special New Year’s Eve makeup! Oh, and don’t forget those special false eyelashes for extra fluttering effect!
