How To: Wear glittery makeup on New Year's Eve (without going overboard)
You want to be festive at that New Year’s Eve party, and all of the glitter makeup in Sephora keeps drawing you in! But how can you wear glitter without looking like you’re in costume? We’ve got the hottest ways to add a bit of sparkle to your look and still keep it classy.
Nail it. Nail glitter is probably the easiest way to add a little sparkle into your outfit. You can layer multicolored glitter polish over shades you already have, or choose a colored polish that has glitter in it. You can also buy loose nail glitter at Sephora, but it’s a little more complicated if you don’t have much experience with nail art.

Use just a swipe. We love glitter liner, especially at parties, so layer it over your other eye makeup for a festive effect! It’s okay to use more than one stroke, but don’t wear glittery shadow, or you might blind people with your shimmer.

Try a shimmer blush. Some blush and bronzer colors have shimmer flecks pressed into them, so you’ll add a natural sparkle to your glow. You can also try an allover color stick on your cheeks, eyes, and lips for a shimmer that’s consistent to your entire face.

Go for a shiny lipgloss. Lipstick is great for looking professional, but New Year’s is the time to party, so go all out with a flirty gloss! If you choose a fun, bright color like pink or purple, be sure to keep your eye makeup neutral.
