One of our favorite things to do is pour over our Instagram feeds and red carpet pics for the celebrity makeup looks. It’s all just so glamorous! The transformation, the technique, all the products used. We’re totally awestruck with it all. Celebrities give us tons of makeup inspiration, so we thought it fitting as we bring 2013 to a close, we commemorate the year’s best celebrity makeup. But not just the best makeup looks, the most BEAT celebrity faces of 2013! Are you guys ready for the breakdown on the beat down?
Check out our picks for the most beat faces from celebs this year below.
1. Kelly Rowland
Between her looks she rocked as a judge on X Factor and her music videos, Kelly has sure had a great year of beat faces. This look crafted by her makeup artist Sheika Daley is just one of hundreds of gorgeous faces from the star.
2. Jennifer Lopez
Never without a flawless face, Jennifer Lopez killed it this year with fab look after fab look. We need her to come out with her own makeup line already.
CiCi was the queen of tonal beauty this year, proving you don’t need a ton of color to be beat. Neutrals are perfect options too! The look she’s wearing above was done by makeup artist Yolonda Fredrick.
Faces don’t get any more beat than this! Brandy served face all up and through 2013. This look was created by makeup artist Renny Vasquez.
5. Kim Kardashian
Love her or hate her, one thing is for sure: Kim’s makeup is ALWAYS perfection. This look is by makeup artist Joyce Bonelli.
6. Kerry Washington
Kerry is the queen of less is more when it comes to makeup, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t stay with a beat face. We’ve run out and bought every mauvey-pink lip color possible thanks to Olivia Pope’s muted pout every week on Scandal.
7. Nia Long
Like fine wine, Nia Long just gets better and better with age! Goodness this woman is gorgeous. She also seems to follow a less is more policy for makeup but stays beat. The look above is by makeup artist Saisha Beecham.
8. Lilly Ghalichi
No celebrity makeup list would be complete without the self-proclaimed Persian Barbie, Lilly Ghalichi because..well, she STAYS with her face beat. Makeup in this photo is by artist Rokael Lizama.
Surely by now you’ve been slain by Bey’s gorgeous looks for both her Mrs. Carter World Tour and, of course, her new visual album. She’s been beat all year long! Looks here are by makeup artist Sir John.
