Our Favorite Makeup Looks Of 2013

The end of the year provides perfect party opportunities to try beauty trends you’ve seen all year but haven’t given a go yet. In 2013, our fave looks were updated classics, like a bright liner for your cat eye, or a coppery smoky eye. Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Solange, and Demi Lovato all gave great face this year, and we’ve found some products that will help you cop their looks, just in time for New Year’s Eve.

COVERGIRL Katy Perry served up a twist on the smoky eye at the 2013 Unicef Ball, subbing in light brown and gold for typical black and silver. The lighter shadow complemented her gray-blue eyes and drew attention to her full, dark lashes. If you love a smoky eye but are looking for a change, you can try Katy’s coppery look for yourself, using COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pots in Melted Caramel and in Melted Gold. The combo provides a light, shimmery alternative to dark grays and black. With a swipe of Bombshell Volume Mascara, your lashes will rival Katy’s.

For her cheery Christmas performances at Jingle Balls across the country, Ariana Grande has been wearing a dark lip color, which is totally reminiscent of the goth/grunge preferences of the ’90s. Since Ariana was born in 1993, she wasn’t a part of that particular scene, but she’s definitely perfected the 2013 version of it (when she’s not doing cutesy cat ears and princess gowns, that is). To get Ariana’s wintry burgundy lips, try COVERGIRL’s Euphoria. It’s dark, matte, and one application will last, which is key, since you don’t want to have to be , like, 100 times during a party.

Solange, who experimented with different lipstick shades all year, also knows how to make simple eyeliner more exciting: make it bright. The best part about this look? No other makeup is necessary! For Solange’s bright blue liner look, try COVERGIRL’s Ink It! Eyeliner in Aquamarine. Solange brought the liner into the corners of her eyes, which is a dramatic move you don’t see that often. If you’re in the market to update your look even further, take a cue from Solange and bring your line from one end of your eye to the other!

Between Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez going heavy on the scarlet pout this year, bright red lipstick, which is already an obvious classic, got a lot of attention. More unexpected than red, though, is a bright pink color like Demi Lovato’s. You can get a shiny pink pout using COVERGIRL’s Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Haute Twist or, if you’re looking for something more matte, Lipstick in Enchantress.
