For a graphic and colorful look, you can recreate Emma Chamberlain’s 2021 Met Gala makeup. Her smokey eye is a classic night-out look, but the neon green eyeliner makes it really pop.

Zendaya looked ready to take on NYE in her sequin blazer at a London photo call for Spider Man: No Way Home. An inky eyeliner, black eyeshadow, and mascara are all you need to get this smoked out wing and dramatic eye moment.

You can’t go wrong by dousing yourself in gold. If money is what you’re seeking in 2022, Lady Gaga’s shimmering eyeshadow paired with perfectly shaped brows and strong wings (which she showed off at the LA premiere of House Of Gucci) is the way to go.

You can never go wrong with packing on as much glitter as possible. You can get a more modern touch and define your glimmer by adding a second line of eyeliner on the hood of your eye.


You can even add some color to your look by doing an ombré shadow, like Tyra Banks did for this America’s Got Talent Season 12 live show. Concentrating the glitter and lighter color to your inner corner will let the shimmer pop even more.

If dark and dramatic isn’t your style, JoJo Siwa is the NYE makeup inspo you need. The dancer wore soft makeup with a nude, shimmery eye at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards.

SZA’s 2018 Oscars makeup is the ideal balance of glam and soft for NYE. While her eyelids look wet and shiny, her inner corners are highlighted to the heavens, and she rocked a classic, glossy lip.
