Share

You’ve spent weeks pondering your NYE party attire, and if you ask us, your makeup look deserves proper planning too. For a much-needed dose of inspo, we turned to the glam ladies who’ve defined party beauty with their signature looks. Here, we’ll show you how to start the new year looking like a bona fide icon.

Smoky Cat Eye
