The holidays are one of the best times of the year to dress up and have fun with your look. While you might consider keeping things more neutral around Christmas since you’ll be seeing a lot of family, you can definitely experiment with bolder looks and shimmery eyes on New Years Eve.
This year, test out sultry red lips and neutral eye makeup on Christmas. If you’re usually modest with your look, try going glitter-happy on NYE.

Get ready for your Christmas party with RachhLoves! She goes into great detail about how to make your face look flawless and she shows you how to create a really pretty sparkly eye and lip. The hair tutorial is just a bonus!
Gold eyes and bold lips
shaaanxo gets right into it and shows you how to create a really elegant gold eye. If you don’t like the typical “red and green” Christmas look, this palette is perfect for you.

If you’re going out with that special someone, try this “Sexy Christmas Makeup” look. MakeupGeekTV helps you look more mature, though really, a sexy attitude comes from the inside out!
Red bow tie eye makeup
Some people like to get reallyyy festive around the holidays and if you’re one of those people, I suggest you watch this tutorial. BeautifulYouTV shows you how to paint a cute Christmas bow on your eyelid. It’s crazy but cute at the same time.
Sugar Plum Fairy purple palette
I really love this tutorial by MissChievous because I’m so obsessed with glitter eyeliner and The Nutcracker is my FAVOURITE Christmas play. I’m definitely going to try this look out for my family parties this year.
Glittery NYE eyes
Now, enough about Christmas. Let’s move onto New Years. I love this tutorial because MichellePhan shows us how to create a shimmery eye that’s so pretty and really simple to create.
Elegant NYE look
MissJessicaHarlow did an amazing job with this tutorial and came up with such an elegant New Years makeup look. She shows us how to create a shimmery eye and fierce eyeliner, then goes onto blush, and then a sparkly lip. So perfect.
NYE bold lips and eyes
JLovesMac1is absolutely hilarious throughout this entire tutorial and never gets boring. She shows you how to create a really really pretty sparkly eye with a really pretty shimmery lip. This is definitely my favorite New Years tutorial.
Silver eye palette, transitional
I absolutely love this tutorial because bebexo doesn’t just show you one look, she shows you two. She transforms her day makeup look for a family party, to an edgy look for a crazy party later on.
Dark smokey eye
If you don’t want a shimmery or glittery eye like the rest of the tutorials, definitely try this one out. makeupbyeman shows you how to do a black smokey eye that is fierce and sexy.
