2016 New Year’s Eve MakeUp Trends To Look Out For


Will you be attending a party to greet 2016 on this New Year’s Eve? This means you should be wearing the right overall attire. That includes your make up. Based on the trends and news for 2015, there are certain makeup ideas that you should be wearing this New Year’s Eve.

Below are some of the major makeup trends that you should wear for the 2016 New Year’s Eve. You don’t necessarily have to wear them all at once. But you can mix and match from all the leading makeup ideas for the New Year.


To have that flawless, radiant complexion for the New Year, you must have that perfect formula for your foundation.


For those who have sensitive skin, powder foundation is best for concealing skin issues, like acne and uneven skin tone. Try the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15 at $58. Skin-soothing ingredients found in your moisturizer can help minimize skin irritation and conceal redness naturally.

For people with oily skin, a matte foundation is best. This controls the oil on the surface of your skin. You can try the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Airbrush Powder Foundation at $36.

Mineral make up is also good for those with sensitive and acne-riddled skin. You can try the Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation at $34.

Meanwhile, those who have dry skin should go for the liquid foundation, like the Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation at $52.

Concealer and Powder

After applying the foundation, you need the right concealer or powder to go along with it. Remember that not all concealers are the same. There are various colors that go along with particular under-eye conditions. If you have dark under-eye circles, use pink or peach-colored concealer. If you have red spots or blemishes, cover them with green-toned concealer.

When you apply your concealer, instead of drawing lines, draw an inverted triangle under your eye instead. Fill it in lightly and smudge it to even it out under your eye. This helps emphasize your eyes. When you dab the concelaer under your eye, use your ring finger, to apply just the right force on that sensitive skin.

If you want to make your eyes appear brighter use a concealer that is slightly lighter than your skin. Rub it at the right areas around your eyes.

Give Lips and Cheeks a Hint of Sparkle

There may be new trends each year when it comes to the right make up to wear for your lips. But ultimately, it is about wearing the lipstick with the right tone of red to fit the complexion of your skin. Same is true for your cheeks. Make sure you apply the right amount of blush for your cheeks.

High Quality Highlighter

If you still want that summer glow even during the winter, make sure you get yourself the best quality highlighter. Run it down the bridge of your nose. Also apply an ample amount on the top of your cheekbones. Also, apply the highlighter on your cupid’s bow for fuller kissable lips. This is how the French women do it.

Red Lips and Bold Brows

To add more color on your lips, put powder blush over your lip balm and make sure it remains moisturized.

From hot pink to classic red lips, the focus has now shifted to bold brows in 2016. Badgley Mischka’s bright colors and Rodarte’s faux piercings are the most popular colors this time.

Make Skin Fresh and Dewy

After applying the appropriate foundation and an ample amount of powder on the right spots of your face, use cream blush to not make your face look dry and powdery. Also, use a quality liquid or cream cheek highlighter.

Sparkle Eye Shadow and liner traced around the entire eye

The classic wing based on the clean sixties design is usually the eyeliner method women follow. Sometimes, they also do the simple Kohl rimming method. But now, an inky black pencil is enough to get those sparkly eyes as seen in the recent fashion shows in London, New York, Milan and Paris.

Use eyeliner and lash enhancer

Believe it or not, your eyebrow can give a glance of your personality. A curved brow means you’re creative. Straight means you are confident and assertive. Angled means you are a sensitive and private person. Bushy suggests masculinity and thin is inclined to femininity. Try the Peacock or Jade waterproof eyeliner by Stila for a bold brow.

Dress Up The Eyes With Sequins

If you want to stand out this holiday season without spending too much on your dress, let your eyes glitter using sequins. Try some gold and silver highlights for a more wintery look.
