New Year’s Eve is one day you'd want to look your absolute best! The look’s got to be festive, fun and of course, every bit stylish, as you welcome the new year. After all, how you bring in 2018 is setting the tone for how the entire year will be, right? Now, we know that with all the multiple new make-up looks and trends out there, it can get a bit confusing. So, we decided to speak to a few Plixxo bloggers and YouTubers and ask them about their favourite looks for NYE. Because who better to take a cue from, than our very own experts who are always on top of their game with all things beauty?! Have a look, beautiful, and impress all with your make-up look at that NYE bash!
Plixxo blogger Madhumita Chakravarty, of Très Envogue, is all for the classic look that’s evergreen and looks stunning! About her new years look this time, she says, “With the advent of the party season, there’s one universal look has been my go-to look! Wispy lashes, subtle winged liner and a beige eye pencil on the waterline. Along with that, I want to sport dark lips and glowy contour!”

When we spoke to Plixxo blogger Aashna Bhagwani of Beyond That Bouffant, she said that a messy smokey is a no-brainer as far as make-up looks for NYE go. “The smokey eye is one of the sexiest eye looks out there. Neutral lips and dramatic eyes are the way to go. For the dramatic smokey, there is no need to be neat - the messier the better. You can't go wrong with it. This look is perfect for New Year's Eve," she says.

If we were to describe Plixxo YouTuber Prachi Agrawal’s (of Super Wow Style) NYE make-up preference in two words, they’d be ‘basic’ and ‘bright’. “I’d go with bold, red lips to highlight the face. I’d keep my eye make-up really basic with eyeliner and nude eyeshadow. I’d finish my look with a light highlight,” Prachi said when describing here look when welcoming 2018. She added, “This is the perfect look for those girls who don't want the party to stop. No worries about fixing the hair or fading eyeshadow, because this is a look where touch-ups are not needed.”
