Glittery New Year's Eve Makeup to Let You Softly Sparkle the Night Away

...and make the prospect of 2018 just a little bit brighter.

We’re sure you have plenty of natural sparkle courtesy of that personality of yours — but when you start counting down to 2018 you can never have too much. Well ... actually, we take that back. Even on New Year's Eve, you probably don’t want to look like you’re in silent competition with the Times Square ball, unless you're part of the under-12 crowd. So ahead, 10 makeup products that let you subtly sparkle and shine as you welcome the new year.

Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in Glass Souls

Apply a base of deep navy polish your nails, then sweep on a single layer of this silver glitter nail polish to make your fingertips twinkle like ten tiny vignettes of the night sky.


 

Lipstick Queen All That Jazz Lipstick

This red might be classic at first glance, but then, oh — you notice it’s infused with soft shimmer that makes it perfectly appropriate for mumbling your way through “Auld Lang Syne.”


 

NYX #GlitterGoals Kit

We could imagine endless ways to put this sparkly little kit to work, but for NYE, we're thinking: why not dust a little on our brow bones and balance it with a classic cat-eye?


Tarte Tartiest Lip Bling

Don't let its full-on blingy top trick you, this golden gloss is anything but over the top. In fact, it just gives lips an intriguing little dusting of shimmer. It's not sticky either, meaning you can kiss your date without incident.


 

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Glitter

Wherever you decide to dust on this glitter, its array of vivid hues will brighten up your NYE selfies. 


 

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

A sweep of this shimmer liner and a couple coats of mascara will let you give a festive little wink to the celebrations without being too overt.


 

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil

Closing your eyes and sniffing in this body oil will transport you to the tropics for at least three seconds — more welcome than ever on the chilly last day of 2017. Plus it’s infused with the subtlest shimmer imaginable, making you feel sparkly and bright even after far too many Champagne toasts.


IGK Preparty Hair Strobing Glitter Spray

Turns out, it is actually impossible to think of glitter hairspray without inducing flashbacks to 8th grade. This stuff, though, gives the concept a very grown up upgrade, with microfine glitter that lets you shimmer elegantly.


 

Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara

Paint your top lashes with your standard black or brown mascara, then sweep this golden formula on your lower lashes to create a trompe l’oeil effect that’ll let you welcome the new year with open eyes.


 

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette

Even if you’re still hunting down the perfect sequined dress to welcome in 2018, this 20-color kit will make sure prepared for whatever look you commit to.
