Wear Jewel-tones in Teal & Blue to really add drama to the eyes. Both colorful and dark, it offers something less traditional than a gray/black smoky eye.

Pinks & Browns are quite complimentary for most skin tones, and it’s a great way to add color to an ensemble. It’s color-rich, but it isn’t really a jumbling of crazy in-your-face bright shades.

Match Gold and Green together as a great way to bring a classic holiday color (gold) to a more modern level.

Bright Purples is a nice way to go feminine and colorful all at once. The purples are bright enough to attract attention, but they aren’t so primary that it looks garish.

The Black Smoky Eye is always something to consider doing when you have a really fun event to go to. It’s definitely not something you’d wear to a wedding by any means, but to a New Year’s Eve party? Quite possibly! This is one of the easiest looks I’ve ever done, but I’ve always received a lot of compliments on it when I wear it. I also love this black-gold alternative, too.

    I definitely used your smokey eye tutorial as inspiration for my NYE look. Instead of Vex I used Crystal Avalanche. I actually wanted vex, but it wasn’t out on display.
