Grey smokey eye: If you like subtle sex appeal, the easiest way to achieve this is with a perfect smokey eye. Highlight your eyelids with shimmery grey eyeshadow, outline your eyes with black kohl pencil and enhance your eyelashes with several coats of mascara. A winged eye can help to bring the overall makeup together, while glowing skin and pale pink lips are an absolute must.

Intense eyeliner: To bring the focus up to your eyes, there is nothing quite like plenty of black eyeliner and some softly smudged peach or apricot blush. For a finishing touch, apply a set of dramatic false eyelashes to truly create the New Year’s Eve glamour factor. Finish off with nude or beige lipstick that places the focus on your eyes, and allow your beauty to shine.

Cut crease glitter shadow: Nothing does the trick quite like smudged tangerine or orange eyeshadow, divided up by sections of glittery silver shadow. Black winged eyeliner can awaken your upper eyelids, while luscious lashes and a bronzed complexion help to seal the deal.
