Shimmering Opal & Metallic Gold NYE Tutorial

Hey dolls,

Here's a pretty simple yet striking smokey eye that's perfect for New Year celebrations!

I've also added a corresponding lip to go with the look! (tutorial for that will be released next week)

Enjoy the tutorial, below!


  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Shadow Liner 629 Sparkle Green
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (Milk Chocolate, Salted Caramel)
  • Makeup Atelier Paris Pearl Powder PP04 - White Gold
  • Milani Liquifeye Liquid Eye Liner Automatic - Black 
  • False Eyelashes 
  • Maybelline Black Mascara
  • Barry M Fine Glitter Dust, 21 - Opal
  • NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Collection - Glam 24 Karat
  • Rimmel Cosmetics Liquid Black Eyeliner



  1. Begin with a sparkly green eye base. I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Sparkle Green all over the lids.
  2. Follow with a fine glitter dust. I’m using Opal from Barry M which is a glittery deep teal shade.
  3. You’re only going to need two eyeshadows for the next steps a soft nude/beige and a soft brown. I’m using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. Apply Milk Chocolate, a soft brown to the brow bone; blend outwards and upwards to diffuse the edges.
  4. Apply NYX jumbo pencil to the lower lashline.
  5. Then apply the nude/beige shade right over the brow bone again focusing on the outer edges.
  6. Apply the Barry M fine glitter dust to the lower lashline over the NYX jumbo pencil.
  7. Apply black eyeliner to the lower waterline.
  8. Apply a pearlescent pigment to the inner corners and beneath the brows to bring luminosity to the look.
  9. Apply false lashes and mascara.
  10. Apply a tiny amount of black liner at the root of the upper lashline.
  11. Finish with a generous amount of metallic gold eyeliner on the upper lashline right above the black liner.


Happy New Year dolls!
