It's our last batch of celebrity beauty to close out the year—and these looks do not disappoint!
Just in time for New Year's Eve inspiration, there's everything from red lips to cat eyes to smoky and shimmering eyeshadow. And that's just the makeup. You'll also find an array of updos, braids and accessories below to inform your next party hairstyle.
Keep scrolling for the best skin, hair and makeup sightings lately!
Could this be Taylor's best look EVER? I love everything about it, from her flawless skin to the bold red lips to the cat eyes and flirty lashes. Most of all, I think it's the bangs that make it feel so fresh.
Olivia is making me want to bust out the glitter in a big way. I love how she layered it over a grey smoky eye to give it dimension, keeping her lips and cheeks a pale baby pink. With her soft waves, it's glamorous but not overdone.
Zendaya's style just keeps getting better and better. I love the slightly Boho feel of her braided waves with warm neutral makeup and glowy skin. The blending is so impeccable, her face literally looks air-brushed!
I totally want to copy Lily's soft wash of purple eyeshadow paired with warm, peachy-pink blush and lipstick. What a gorgeous colour combo! The rest is just fresh skin, fluffy lashes and full brows (along with her amazing bone structure, of course).
Lily is wearing: Foundation in Medium Cool
What do you wear with a neon yellow gown? Slicked back hair, bare-looking skin and the most perfectly drawn cat eyes, as Emilia demonstrates. There's only a hint of pink on her lips and cheeks, which keeps all the attention on the colour statement.
I'm not crazy about the new padded headband trend, but I have to admit that Jessica wears it well. I think it's the simple hair (apparently a faux lob!) and understated makeup that saves this from looking too busy. I also like the contrast of the cool-toned dress and accessories with her warm-toned makeup.
Jessica is wearing: Moisturizer • Matte primer • Illuminating primer • Foundation in Amber • Blush in Peony Pink • Eyeshadow in Supreme • Liquid liner • Mascara • Tinted lip balm in Lychee Fruit • Lipstick in BFF
The last time we saw Emma, she was sporting some controversial baby bangs. (Okay, real talk—they were just bad.) Fortunately, they've now grown out enough to frame this romantic updo, crowned with a thin hairband and what looks like a dusting of gold shimmer. The deep brownish berry lipstick and matching eyeshadow gives it some edge.
Rihanna's look is all about accentuating her mesmerizing eyes. The smoky brown shadow creates a feline effect, while the lighter shade beneath the crease makes it pop. Long braids (a style known as Fulani braids) and a slick of brown lip gloss complete the look.
Margot's dress is over-the-top feminine, so I like that she pared down the makeup to rosy lips, flushed cheeks and only a hint of mascara—anything heavier would've been too much. The same goes for the hair, worn in loose waves instead of a serious updo.
Ana de Armas
Holy glow! Ana looks so healthy and radiant here, it can't possibly be just makeup—can it? But I'm in love with that too, especially the shimmery eyeshadow, sheer blush and stained glossy lips.
In case you're pondering your next haircut, Lily is serving up lob goals (not to mention brunette hair colour goals!) in this ensemble. I'm equally obsessed with her deep pink lipstick, copper eyeshadow and thick black liner. These colours work so well on her!
Lily is wearing: Foundation in Medium Neutral • Concealer in Honey • Highlighter in Nude Gold • Eyeshadow in Smokey Brown • Eyeliner in Midnight Brown • Mascara in Ultra Black • Brow pencil in Sepia • Lip liner in Medium • Lipstick in Rosewood
Naomie's take on a classic red lip is far from boring. First, there's her cool braids (which appear to be jet-black now, after dabbling with highlights in 2018). Then, there's a thick fringe of lashes (which I think work on her) and dewy skin to set off the bright, matte red.
I love seeing Gigi in a more ladylike look than usual, with her hair tied back and in simple, monochromatic nude makeup. She has so much lid space, the matte shadow all the way up to her brows is quite dramatic (accentuated by only mascara).
Not one but two Selena red carpet appearances this fall? We are blessed! This is fall in a makeup look: a rich, brownish-red lip and warm smoky eyes to go with her bright orange dress. (She may have smudged the lipstick a bit... it happens!) The only part I'm not crazy about is the curly false lashes.
Katherine is always surprising us on the red carpet, and this look is no exception. In fact, those are tiny black crystals adhered to her eyes to mimic the shape of chunky lashes! It works because her hair is scraped up into a ballerina bun, and the rest of the makeup is super subtle.
Clean, precise, modern—those are the words that come to mind with Daisy's hair and makeup. I particularly like the colourful liquid liner and the velvety deep pink lip stain. I'd just tidy up the hairstyle, though. What is that one loose piece hanging out?
The dress is a bit bridal, but I'm a big fan of Olivia's pretty pink makeup. It's actually the bold blush that makes the look (instead of the eyes or lips, which are usually what is enhanced). There's also a lovely glow to her skin and shine to her hair.
Although Amber didn't stray from her red lipstick comfort zone, I think the unusual choice of outfit gives this a fresh spin. I also like the volume and waves in her updo. I'd just tone down the brows a tad (they're maybe a little too warm and intense).
Saoirse is still doing her no-mascara thing, but it somehow suits her. Instead, she played up her eyes with a smudgy brown shadow, and then did a bright strawberry hue on her lips. With the loose updo, the effect is really pretty even if it's not making a major statement.
Mandy is as adorable as ever in this unexpectedly edgy eyeliner look. (She's wearing a chic black suit, so there's more leeway to experiment here.) The shiny pink lip gloss and textured waves keep it in the girly zone.
Rosie went for all-out glam: big hair and even bigger lips, painted with a deep red that's a little off-brand for her. (She usually wears neutrals.) Even if she's looking slightly over-injected, I always like her straight brows, subtly shaded eyelids and long lashes.
