Best Metallic Makeup for Your New Year’s Eve Party
Nothing says New Year’s Eve quite like the bright, futuristic finish of metallics. More and more, we’ve been seeing them in lip glosses, highlighter, and eyeshadow. You can wear it sleek and minimal or bright and bold—the preference is up to you. There’s no better way to ring in the new year than with a look that might be a step out of the ordinary.
Nars Hardwired Eyeshadow in Rose Gold
This eyeshadow is heavily pigmented and crease resistant, that means you don’t have to worry about reapplying mid-party. The color “Outer Limits” is the perfect shade of rose gold, flattering on all skin tones and a hue of the moment.

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquid in Silver Dust
Add silvery sheen to cheeks or eyes with this light, buildable shade. Or, use it on top of your normal blush or let it steal the show—either way, you’ll glow all night.
