Eyeshadow is the staple of every glamorous makeup look. So why not go in a different direction for one of the most fabulous days of the year? Swap your glittery eyeshadow for something more elegant this New Year’s Eve. Discover Glitter Eye, a high-gloss alternative that produces unexpected pigments. Still need convincing? Check out the most inspiring glossy eye makeup looks we’ve found on Instagram.

A radiant future

Flaunt your most radiant year yet by replicating this ultra-bright Golden Eyes look. After drawing and polishing a wing, dab a little Valentino Go for Gold’s dreamdust Glitter Eyeshadow onto your eyelids with your finger or a damp makeup brush, and seal it all in with a high-gloss gloss.


Big and bold

Start the year with bright eyes in vivid colors. To add even more sparkle to a bright orange eyeshadow, apply a few dabs of YSL Beauty Touché Eclat, an All-Over PEN illuminator, to the corners of your eyes and the middle of your lids.

Out with the old, in with the new

If your everyday makeup is pretty neutral, consider this your sign to surprise everyone on New Year’s Eve with a glittering look that creates a festive mood. For this look, dab a bit of Danessa Myrick’s Colorfix leaves in Mermaid, a luminous duo in chrome eye color, onto your eyelids.


Auld Lang Eye

Afraid of the procedure on eyelids covered in glitter? Don’t worry, subtly lean into the trend with an elegant crease. Simply swipe an eyeliner pencil – we love IT Cosmetics Superhero Waterproof eyeshadow Stick without shading in pearl lavender – along the crease of your eyelid, starting at the inner corner. Then, using your finger, dab a non-sticky gloss onto the crease.


Monochrome at midnight

Go for the most popular beauty product of the year – blush – with overly red cheeks and a glossy look like @mua_candyb’s. Choose a flashy pink or red shade and apply it to your eyelids before sweeping it across your cheeks (making sure, of course, that it has a long-lasting shimmer). Finally, apply a golden-pink illuminator, such as RMS Luminizer in amethyst pink, to your cheekbones, brows and the corners of your eyes.
