There's something eternally sexy about a feline flick. Team it with some shimmering metallic eyeshadow and some lashes & you've got a bombshell look that will work with anything from big hair to a sleek ponytail.

For an effortlessly chic look, you can't go wrong with a French Girl chic matte lipstick. Keep skin minimal, hair a little tousled and add mascara to finish the look.

Soft Liner


If you want makeup that isn't too crazy then swapping a black liner for a brown is always an option. The over all effect is softer but will still define eyes.

Bright & Bold

Is there anything more eye catching than primary colours? We love this Disco inspired vibrant blue eyeshadow and glossy red lip combo.

All out Glitter

New Years Eve is one of the last chances we have to legitimately wear glitter. So why not go all out with a sparkling look, guaranteed to catch everyone's eye?


Will you be heading out for NYE? Or are you having quiet one?
