Light Smoky Eye makes it easy to wear during the day and into the night as the party revs up. Don’t worry about looking too done during the day, because this smoky eye is quite subtle.

Gold & Copper make an excellent combination that’s festive, appropriate for the event, and it’s not too bold or too subtle. You can always darken the crease and smoke the outer lid color(s) out to amp up the drama.

Run to Get Beiges de Chanel, because it will answer every single neutral eye woe you could possibly have. Smooth, buttery eyeshadows that belong to the neutral color family makes this quad an excellent choice to create a subtle eye for New Year’s Eve.

The Ol’ Colored Liner Trick for no fuss, no muss eyes. One of my favorite ways to look festive or add something fun to my makeup is playing around with colored eyeliner. It lets you add color without going overboard. Sometimes when I know I’ll be wearing makeup all day and night, I’d actually rather wear less makeup than more, so a neutral eye with a pop of colored liner is always a good choice.

Clean, Sophisticated Neutrals is never a bad way to go for an event look. This is one of my favorite looks I have ever done, because I think it complimented my skin tone and eye shape really well–and I think it can work for just about everybody. The black liner on the upper and lower lash lines also increases the drama without going overboard.
