Well look what the cat coughed up. Here we are again, the night everyone is expected to have the BEST NIGHT EVER but we really just want to chill in front of the TV with our furry friend because we’re still recovering from the mass beating our bellies took over Christmas. New Year’s Eve is here and you’ve surely got your outfit sorted (sucks to be you if not as shipping is slower than grandma walking at this time of year). So whether you’ve forgotten an outfit and will be stuck in something you fish out of your cupboard, OR you’ve got some brand spanking new threads, keep scrolling for MAJOR beauty inspo for your NYE shenanigans. With the help of some ridiculously talented makeup vloggers obvs.
GLOWY & NATURAL
This is for the gal who is having a few drinks with friends and watching the fireworks. Very low-key so save your bold red lippy and fierce wing for another night. Flawless skin, a great highlight, slick of mascara, and a pop of a pretty colour on your lips is all you need!
For all those gals heading to a festival this new year, my biggest tip is to make sure you SET YOUR MAKEUP. Lest you want to sweat it off before the 3rd set of the day. I love going all out for festivals; so braid your hair into a messy top-knot, layer on some chokers and opt for a vampy lip.
ROCKSTAR LIFE BABY
Have tickets for the hottest club with your squad? Steal the show with this bold and fun look by Miss Curtis. Hot pink lips are unexpected and every time you blink (or wink), you’ll give everyone a sexy surprise.
DINNER & DRINKS
If you’re keeping things (somewhat) classy this year by visiting a nice restaurant with bae, a wing and a red lip are the way to go. Desi’s below look is perfect and really easy to recreate. I’d err away from glitter lids for dinner, but as always, you do you GF!
If you want your highlight more intense than the 12 pm fireworks, Nikki’s tutorials have you covered. Her highlight continuously slays and this look is perfect for a fun night out bar-hopping.
Heading out to sea this NYE? Incorporate some blue and bucketloads of shimmer to unleash your inner mermaid.

So I hope this has given you gals some serious beauty inspo. If on NYE you decide you couldn’t give one f*ck about spending an afternoon blending, pop on your essentials and a bright lip and you’re good to go! Happy New Year y’all!
