One last beauty guide before the New Year! This time we asked Lydia Deljaj, makeup artist, to show us how to do a fun glam glitter eye for the party night of the year. Follow along for Lydia’s makeup tutorial on how to get perfect New Year’s Eve Glitter Eye Makeup!
Before I started on Mioara’s eyes, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour & Highlight Palette on her face. I set the contour with setting powder and then moved the focus to her eyes. To prime her eyes, I used Urban Decay Primer Potion on the entire top eye lid and brow bone. Like I mentioned in the Smokey Bronze Eye Beauty Guide, I’m obsessed with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette right now! For this look, I applied the Fresh shade on her eyelid and the Bengal shade in her crease.
I applied Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel #77 to line Mioara’s top lids before applying lashes. I love the glam factor that Lilly Lashes add to a look, so I used the Paris lashes on Mioara.
Now for the fun part, adding the glitter! I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy for bottom lid liner. I really like this glitter liner because it is buildable and water-based which makes it easy to go on and come off.
For the top lid, I used Stila Magnificent Metal Eyes in Vintage Black Gold. The gold glitter specs in this are beautiful and really catches with the light! For whichever glitter shades you choose to use, my advice is to stick with gel liner glitters or cream pens so you can control the glitter. I never use loose glitter because it tends to fall elsewhere on the face, like on your cheeks and chin.
