ingrid's tutorial

We at The Gloss are fully devoted to sparing all human beings the pain and suffering of not knowing how to do their makeup for a big holiday. No one should have to go through that alone. And, having lost full months of my life just watching and rewatching beauty videos, I consider myself an expert on feeling inferior to pretty strangers on YouTube. Here are 5 of the absolute best New Year’s Eve tutorials for glitterfying your face.

1. Get Ready With Me! Holiday Party Makeup, Hair, And Outfit” by missglamorazzi. The perpetually gorgeous Ingrid takes you through the whole process of getting glammed up for a fancier event. Watch (and feel inadequate) as she demonstrates all the skin care, makeup, and hair styling that goes into looking immaculate.

2. New Years Eve Sparkly Makeup!” by Nikki Phillippi. Watch as Tati transforms Nikki into a glittery goddess and talks you through every step. This look is perfect for anyone who wants to fully take advantage of the “THERE IS NO LIMIT TO HOW SPARKLY YOU CAN BE ON NEW YEAR’S” rule.

3. New Year’s Makeup!” by chicbykarina. We introduced you to Karina a few days ago, and this is one of her absolute cutest looks. This tutorial will work wonders if you’re looking to be put to shame by a 15-year-old– she’s better at eyeshadow than you will probably ever be.

4.New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas!” by beautybaby44. But what if you don’t have an outfit yet? No worries. From faux leather pants to printed leggings, Lindsey can show you how to edge-up your NYE. All the outfits are vaguely reminiscent of the Avant-Garde Best Friend character from every teen sitcom, so if you’re looking to ring in the new year feeling like Miranda from Lizzie McGuire, this video has your back.

So grab your sequins and your glitter and your lamé, you shimmery beauty, and get ready to take 2014 by storm! Your eyeshadow looks awesome.
