The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has never been shy of make-up, favouring a slightly sparkly smoky eye most of the time, but never being boring and sticking to the same thing. Cue this year's fabulous Halloween costume complete with blonde wig and glitzy eyes!

So it was no surprise that Kim's Boxing Day blog was all about how to glam up for the new year. And her main advice? Get to grips with some glitter...

"NYE is all about celebrating 2012 and having fun with friends and family and of course, you can never have too much sparkle on New Year's Eve. Go for a shimmer shadow and a light layer of glitter powder for a subtle look or go all out with rhinestones and false lashes."

To get the look at home, try a mineral eyeshadow like Bella Pierre Shimmer Powders, £12.99 each. These are super-sparkly already and don't budge which is what you want if you're going to be partying all night!

Apply with a shadow brush, holding a tissue under your eye so you don't get it all over your skin, then, try pressing on some Barry M Gitter Shaker, £3.99 over the top.

We also love Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Gel Eyeliner, £2.99, which was a favourite with the Strictly Come Dancing make-up team for its total fabulousness!

Simply draw a line above your top lashes for a gorgeous, but subtly sparkly look.

A real bobby dazzler!
