Kinda wanna get glam and glittery but don't want to end up looking like a ball of chewed up tinsel? We take a look at Vogue's NYE eye make-up ideas, pinched straight from the catwalk.

GLITTER CAT A feline flick, as backstage pro Peter Philips noted at Chanel's Spring '14 Couture show, is "chic and iconic," but holographic glitter makes a perfect wing feel "relaxed and fresh." To keep the shine from migrating to your cheeks over the course of the night, rim your lower lashes with a platinum liquid liner.

ROBO GLITTER If you can't wear Dior's sequinned turtleneck under your cocktail dress, the next best thing is to re-create the "electric kabuki" look from the house's Pre-Fall '15 runway. Etch blocks above and below your iris with a felt-tip liner pen, then apply jumbo pieces of silver glitter inside the rectangular shape on your top lid. "It catches the light when the eyes close, creating a pretty spectacular robotic glitter effect," Peter Philips said backstage.

SILVER SLIVER The mirrored liner crafted for Dior's Fall 2014 Couture runway is finally on shelves and ready to party. Peel away the back of these reusable adhesive patches and apply to makeup-free lids. Skip mascara and bolster the metallic stickers with a quick swipe of white kohl along your lower lashes. The best part about this press-on look (aside from the obvious sparkle factor): no steady hand required.

PLASTIC FANTASTIC Iridescent cellophane—yes, the same stuff that comes wrapped around a holiday fruit basket—can be easily slashed into smaller pieces and affixed to the inner and outer corners of the eyes as an accent. To re-create the effect at home, paint a thin layer of clear Duo Lash Glue onto the back of the paper-thin plastic and use tweezers to apply to bare skin. The look really comes to life when the light hits it. "Now you see it, now you don't," declared makeup artist Val Garland backstage at Monique Lhuillier's Spring '15 show. "It's a little bit of magic."

NEUTRAL TINGED WITH GREEN Give an uptown look (like the luxe cashmere and fur from Altuzarra's Fall '14 collection) a downtown vibe with glitter in an unexpected color. Tom Pecheux employed a green-gold hue, applying the particles to models' lash lines with a brush coated in Homeoplasmine, a moisturizing ointment. Diffuse the sparkles over the lid and up toward the brow bone with a dry, fluffy brush. Keep the rest of the face relatively bare, save for a flesh-coloured lipstick.

MORNING AFTER GLITTER MAKE-UP Normally we'd condemn those that don't come clean before bed, but we'll let leftover mascara slide so long as you top it with a fresh coat of black glitter like makeup artist Tom Pecheux did at Anthony Vaccarello's Spring '15 show. Try MAC Rocky Horror Glitter in 3D Black.

SEQUIN QUEEN Oh how we LOVE Ashish's sequin collections - especially when it reflects onto the models with scatterings of sparkles on the lids and roots. Simply sprinkle into your hair & hairspray the shit out of it to get the sequin roots, or for the lids, use make-up glue and stick those sequins down! We like to do both.

BRIGHT & BOLD Dramatic wings done in a rich jewel tone are worthy of Versace Couture—and a big night out. Stencil the shape with a teal pencil first, then apply a shimmery peacock-blue shadow from inner corner to end point. To set, dust a shimmery turquoise powder over top.

BRONZE BEAUT Take a metallic shadow up a notch by coating it with a thin layer of matching glitter like face painter Diane Kendal did at Jason Wu's Spring '14 show. Base eyes with a dewy foundation (like Lancôme Teint Visionnaire Skin Correcting Duo) to give the shimmery particles something to grip onto, then blend a brown liner pencil through the crease—leaving the middle of the lid bare. Using a damp brush, apply a fine rose gold glitter to the centre for a glam finish.

SHIMMER SMOKE Bolster a charcoal shadow with a band of creamy gold liner as seen at Chanel's recent show in Salzburg, Austria. Try the house's Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Or Blanc and layer with Illusion d'Ombre Luminous Eyeshadow in Convoitise (a gel texture laced with subtle sparkles) for a hint of mess-free shine.
