These Glitter Makeup Tutorials Are Perfect For NYE

by Melanie Richtman

New Year's Eve is an excuse for all things glittery. Glittery dresses, glittery tights, and most importantly, glittery makeup. When I think of glittery makeup, the first thing that pops into my head is eye makeup, but there are so many glitter makeup tutorials out there that go way beyond a sparkly smoky eye and would be absolutely perfect for you to rock on New Year's Eve.

You also don't have to use the traditional New Year's Eve metallics of gold and silver when it comes to your glitter of choice Why not wear purple or blue glitter for NYE? There's no reason not to, especially if you're wearing a black or neutral colored dress — might as well be a little crazy!

I'm always hesitant to wear glitter, but the second I see a picture on Instagram of someone wearing a glitter highlight, I immediately change my mind. And do you remember seeing all of those Instas and photos of top models like Naomi Campbell and Bella Hadid rocking glitter lips from Pat McGrath? Totally worthy of a New Year's wear.
