Your first instinct for New Year's Eve makeup might be silver, gold, and bronze glitter everything, but why not keep 'em all guessing?

Subtly matching her necklace and tank top, Smalls swept a metallic green eyeshadow hue over the entirety of her eyelid, blending out the color to the outer corners of her eyes.

To get a similar look, try using a product like Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Defining Eye Shadow in Hyper Teal ($26; macys.com).
