Use: MAC Cosmetics MAC Girls Classic Cuties Palette; eBoot Holographic Stars; DUO Eyelash Adhesive

This perfectly plum look was created by @maccosmetics artist Viktor Peters. We love his use of shimmer and shine from the Classic Cuties palette! The real stars of the look are the scattered stars underneath the eye. Attach the gems of your choice with a dab of eyelash glue and you're good to glow!

3 Rihanna's Glitter Everything

Use: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Diamondbomb All-Over Diamond Veil

Rihanna's @fentybeauty brand consistently launches products that hit iconic status instantly. We live for this look, created by makeup artist Priscilla Ono using Fenty's Diamondbomb, a sparkling highlighter that looks amazing on lips and lids. We don't exactly recommend glittering your tongue like Rihanna too, but hers does look pretty awesome. Maybe try some edible glitter instead?

4 Glitter-Wrapped Ponytail

If you're looking for a hair decoration to pair with your New Year's Eve makeup, we love this glitter-wrapped ponytail. Get the look by using @igkhair's festive glitter spray. It's available in both traditional silver and a multicolored shade called "Sprinkle," this effortless spray allows you to wear the one that matches your mood.

5 Gwen Stefani's Chic Nude Lip

Use: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Creme D'Nude and Stroke of Midnight Eyeshadow Palette in Smoky

As you can tell, we love a glitter look for New Year's Eve, but if glitter isn't your thing, we think a chic smoky eye like this is perfect. Paired with a nude lip, this is a classic option that looks beautiful on any occasion. MAC Artist @gregoryarlt created this on Gwen Stefani and we wish he could do our makeup every day.

6 Chunky Glitter Lips

Make your midnight kiss one to remember with this fashion-week-worthy glitter pout. Created by @makeupforeverofficial makeup artist Kike Penya, this lip looks hard to achieve to the naked eye, but it's really just a blend of MUFE lipstick, gloss, and loose glitter. We love it!
