A good New Year celebration can be had in many different ways. Whether you’re headed out to a hot New Year’s Eve party or hosting a few friends for a quiet night in, ringing in the new year is always a good excuse for glitter. So what are the best ways to add a little extra sparkle to your New Year’s Eve look?

A little bit of liner is a great way to go if you just want a hint of sparkle to your look. You could opt for a fun, out of the ordinary color, or stick to a classic metallic; do a full wing or just add a touch of sparkle. Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter liners are a great option if you’re looking to add just a hint of glitz. The liquid gel formula comes with a traditional brush applicator and offers seven shades to choose from.

If you’re not feeling the liner option, consider a bit of glitter on your lips. Nothing makes a midnight smooch better than a little sparkle for good measure. A cool shade of lipstick with a hint of extra glitter can take a more classic look and make it party ready. Kat VonD’s Studded Kiss lipstick range offers a great selection of out of the ordinary shades, some of which are packed with glitzy lippie goodness. The shades Thin Lizzy and Gothica make for a great choice for a sparkling red lip, whereas shades like Poe and Wonderchilde (a sparkling navy and iridescent violet, respectively) are great if you want a more left of center look to ring in the new year.

Finally, if you want the freedom to add glitter anywhere and everywhere, look into loose cosmetic glitter pigments. Eye Kandy Cosmetics offers a wide selection of colors at a really affordable price point. You can pop glitter like this on your eyes, lips, or face, or even into your moisturizer, hair styling product or nail polish for an extra glittery effect. You can even nab a bottle of Eye Kandy’s Liquid Sugar to help adhere the glitter anywhere you want to keep it.
