Makeup trends for the New Year 2024
Pay attention to the following trends that have become most relevant in the outgoing year 2023.
To make pastel makeup bright, add original eyeliner and rich lipstick.
Peach makeup. Shades of orange are at the peak of popularity, from bright orange to pastel honey. And delicate peach makeup is suitable for any color type of appearance. Try combining several colors by adding bright arrows.
Bright glitter on the eyes requires minimalism in all other components of makeup, otherwise the image will be overloaded
Shimmering makeup. “Glitter? For New Year’s Eve? How original!” — Meryl Streep’s heroine from “The Devil Wears Prada” could exclaim, to which Anna Franz has arguments: “It may not be original, but it is relevant. You can be inspired by this season’s makeup trends, among which one of the main ones is metallic, inspired by the 1990s. New Year’s Eve is the best reason to let yourself shine.” Here are some ways:
- shimmering shadows (the simplest and most obvious option is a smoky smokey; colored shadows with a metallic effect look especially good);
- colored metallic eyeliner (can be used as a small accent in the corner of the eye or shaded throughout the entire eyelid);
- shimmer for face and body (the same “wet frosting” popularized by Hailey Bieber). The bravest ones can try on makeup with glitter.
This season you can’t do without pencil and clear contours. No kissed effect or blurred boundaries
Red lipstick never goes out of style. But on the eve of 2024, stylists are talking about a global trend that covers both clothing and makeup – “red accents.” According to Anna Franz, makeup artists offer many options for its integration: from hair to shadows, but the most win-win is, undoubtedly, red lipstick: “It has again become popular both in the West and here, thanks to TikTok and lip syncs to Katya Lel . Don’t forget that red has many shades. And if you are not ready for the classic, you can consider calmer tones with a dark undertone; in comparison with scarlet colors, they are considered more harmonious.”
Makeup for the New Year 2024 according to eye color
In addition to your wardrobe and usual style, makeup should be chosen to match the natural shades of your skin, hair and eyes. They are very diverse, but you can focus on the basic tones.
For blue eyes
New Year’s makeup for blue eyes
A mistake that many makeup beginners make is to paint their eyes with shadows of the same shade as the iris. In this case, the eyes will appear dull. Try the following eyeshadow colors:
- rich grays;
- snow and milk;
- peach and gold;
- pink and purple, maybe with a transition to purple.
If the color type is cold and gentle, it is better to give preference to brown eye pencils. Add shimmer and contrasting eyeliner to your eyelids, and highlight the crease above your eyelid with a slightly richer shadow.
For green eyes
Bright makeup for green eyes
Green eyes are attractive on their own, but if you want to make them even brighter, choose these eyeshadow colors:
- purple and plum;
- beige and milky;
- brown and bronze;
Avoid blue and cold steely shades and add accents with glitter with large particles.
For gray eyes
Golden shadows for gray eyes in New Year’s makeup 2024
It would be right to add light and saturation to gray eyes. They are ideally suited to the ever-popular smoky eyes – makeup in which the eyes seem to be enveloped by a light haze of color transitions. Choose shades:
- copper and bronze;
- pinkish brown, burgundy;
- sea green, blue-green.
Gray, graphite shades of shadows go well with light eyes. Try a silver glitter eyeliner or gold cream eyeshadow all over the lid for a more neutral yet luxe look.
For brown eyes
Festive makeup for brown eyes
Dark brown eyes can be highlighted using contrasting tones:
- pink and lilac;
- gold and copper;
- green and blue.
Light brown, honey shades of eyes are suitable for terracotta, pastel khaki and shades of dusty rose. A rich, warm color type is ideally complemented by black eyeliner and mascara.
8 makeup ideas for the new year 2024
1. Glitter Makeup
Shiny makeup can be done using shimmer and rhinestone stickers
There are a lot of glitter makeup options, and the New Year holidays are the perfect time to put them into practice. After all, in normal times, overly shiny textures look pretentious, and many people are not allowed to wear them by the dress code. Choose the color of sequins to match your dress or jewelry. Or don’t limit your imagination and use all available colors, but carefully and precisely, for example, in the outer corners of the eyes as a continuation of unusual arrows.
2. Confetti on the cheekbones
Use gel glitter, shimmery highlighter or transfer tattoos
Highlighting cheekbones is still in trend, but now this is done not with the help of rough contouring, but with a shining highlighter with sparkles. Try making the look even more fabulous by blending large particles of glitter from the cheeks and outer corner of the eye to the temple. Bright colors are especially popular, but classic gold and silver tones are also suitable.
3. Focus on the lips
This idea allows you to abandon complex eye makeup; an emphasis on the lips will be enough
On New Year’s Eve, not only the eyes or the decor on the dress should be distinguished by a scattering of sparkling diamonds. If you like to focus on your lips, don’t cheat on yourself at the New Year’s party, but make it brighter and more saturated. Dark shades of lipstick, shiny shimmer and lip gloss are suitable. The only negative is that if you plan not only to dance, but also to eat at the festive table, your makeup may require updating.
4. Smokey Ice
Use different shades of eyeshadow…
