MAKE ME UP W hether you’ll be ringing in the New Year with Netflix and a glass of wine or partying with your friends and family, there’s no better excuse to experiment with your makeup than December 31st. Here are seven wearable looks that are easy to recreate and sure to impress everyone this New Year’s Eve, no matter what.

Proper blending and gradation are extremely important if you want to end up with a sexy smokey eye instead of muddy eyeshadow. Fortunately, Desi Perkins has a YouTube tutorial on how to create this eye look. Finish the look with “Rocker,” a copper lipstick with gold specks of glimmer, by Kat Von D. 3 Geometric Eyes Tarte Tarteist Brow Gel, $19, ulta.com Bold Brows and Falsies If you aren’t much of a color gal, you can still make a statement with your hair. By “hair,” I mean your brows and lashes. If you have naturally thick brows, use a clear brow gel like Tarte’s Tarteist Brow Gel to simply brush those hairs up and keep them in place. However, if you’re looking for a drugstore brand, I recommend Maybelline Clear Mascara; it works just as great if you’re on a budget. If you need a little extra help in the brow department, try a cult favorite like the Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil. 22 www.clichemag.com Out of all the looks in this list, you’ll probably turn the most heads (in a good way!) with a geometric eye look. Because we’re all different, you may have to adjust your design to work with your individual eye shape and bone structure. The fun thing about this look is you can play off negative space. Also, you already have eve- rything (eyeliner and a brush) you need to create this fun look right in your makeup drawer. If you are using eyeshadow, use a primer as a base for long-las- ting wear.
