2021 Glam: Must-Have Makeup To Bring In The New Year

The new year is upon us and although we might be limited to virtual celebrations, that doesn’t mean we can’t end the new year looking good. You can have a small celebration with the ones you live with or have a virtual NYE party with loved ones. You never know, getting out of your sweatpants and putting on something sparkly just might be what you need. Of course, you will want a glamorous makeup look that is seamless, and will last all day long. When it comes to NYE makeup, don’t shy away from using lots of glitter, colourful liner, or even gems. This NYE, we interviewed three local makeup artists about which products to use to create an amazing NYE look.

Below makeup artists Anya Khomovych, Christyne Hopkins, and Meagan Riley shared products they would use to create a glamorous NYE look.
