When it comes to makeup, Halloween isn't the only holiday that offers an excellent excuse to pull out your most colorful palettes and glittery liners. In fact, New Year's Eve could be *the* most exciting night of the year for makeup addicts: On December 31, the focus is on glam (on October 31, it's gory). Plus, that reckless NYE vibe gives you permission to be as bold as you want — with your makeup, that is — even if you're a "mascara only" girl the rest of the year. So what are some of the hottest New Year's Eve makeup looks to try this year?
If you're the type who regards wandering through the aisles of Sephora as retail therapy of the highest caliber, there are probably about a zillion trendy tutorials you've been meaning to try for the longest time anyway — but just didn't have the opportunity. (In theory, yes, one should feel free enough to wear fire engine red mascara to school pick-up, but... does one? Not really.) So make this New Year's Eve your moment: Your moment to finally take those holographic highlighters and jewel-toned shadows out of the drawer and out on the town. And hopefully to get photographic evidence, because good makeup doesn't just get wiped away with micellar water at the end of the night. It gets immortalized on Instagram.
