When it comes to New Year’s makeup, it’s hard to resist the draw of your favourite red lipstick. But for beauty enthusiasts, it’s the one night when you can throw away the rulebook and try out some of the trends you’ve seen all over your social feeds during the past year to ensure your look becomes the main event.

It’s a great time to get arty with metallic eyeshadow sticks (you’ll see what we mean in the gallery), glitter brows and gold foil lids. Or ramp up your smoky eye with the ’90s tightlining technique, which Lily Rose Depp and Emily Ratajkowski made fashionable again in 2023.

You may even want to debut one of our 2024 nail trends when the clock chimes midnight – the balletcore mani, in particular, is guaranteed to make you the most interesting person in the room.

Read on to see some of our favourite New Year’s makeup looks to inspire you on the night – and every social occasion in 2024. This is, after all, the perfect excuse to go all out with your beauty look…

There are no rules for this lit rainbow eye look – except to have fun creating it. Sneak a slash of metallic pink over the lid between blue eyeliner along the upper lid and cut crease. Rather than silver, add a dot of shimmering lime in the inner corners to brighten your eye whites and illuminate your brow bone by bleeding the lime shade into aquamarine.

2. Monochromatic copper
