They say that whatever you do on the first day of the year, it will stick with you for the rest of the year too. Surely, you can’t afford to show up with bad make-up to a New Year’s party then. You’ve got to get your makeup on fleek ladies, it’s new year’s eve! check out the looks we love for tonight’s beauty inspiration.

Gradient Match

Insta-blogger Melissa (glambymeli) loves to match a signature lip to her nails. If you plan to usher in 2016 on the dance floor, go for such a lip by merging ­different hues for a stand-out ombré effect. If you don’t have the exact ­gradient shades, opt for eye-shadows or eye pencils to create the needed hue. And of course, don’t forget the matching nails!

What about all those instagram beauty accounts you ­followed this year? Ladies, just go whole-hog, it’s New Year’s Eve! Light up that club with a killer cateye and a sharp contour, with highlighted cheekbones and drawn-in bold eyebrows. A scarlet lip and you’re good to go. Check out beauty blogger Ally Navarrete (abnbby) for more insta-beauty inspo for tonight.

Berry Blend

‘Tis the season of changing up your colour game! If you just can’t think of how to stand out at your own gala NYE dinner, we’ve got your fix. Pull back that hair, sculpt that face with a mineral foundation as you warm your cheekbones with a hint of bronzing powder. Now, lift the entire look with a bold berry lip. A deep shade of plum, marsala, shades of wine or a burnt orchid hue will complete your look.

Glitter Lids

Iconic makeup artist Pat McGrath launched a shade of solid gold this year, and we got a flood of glitter lids and lips taking over her inspiration on Instagram. Here’s Lady Gaga too, making her own daring beauty way with all-glam red shutters. Make the lips nude and glossy and let glitter lids stand out at your party.

Cocoa Pout

It was the year of Kylie Jenner, that killer pout and even her very own range of lip kits that endorsed the trend of chocolate hues. You need makeup tricks, not plumpers to perk up that pout, so get going for the evening. The cupid’s bow on your upper lip has to be defined by ‘over-lining’ or creating an illusion of having lips bigger than your actual size. A few YouTube tutes and you’ll be good to go.

Silver Lining

Add some frosty ­deliciousness to tonight’s makeup with this Rita Ora inspired look. A dash of bold silver to the inner ­corners of eyes will light them up in a jiffy, offsetting the classic black on your lids and waterline. You can also swap the silver with an icy blue and ring in the winter cheer.

Clean, Fierce

Kendall’s look here can be your last-minute beauty inspiration for NYE. A top knot or even a half-tied knot can add structure to your face when paired with a smokey eye and a dewy lip. Drawn-out lashes and a warm-flushed cheeks bring in a touch of smoulder. A pair of killer earrings and you’ve got your look sorted girl.
