Best Beauty Trends of 2013

Best beauty trends of 2012! In 2013, lips and brows are bold. Skin is glowing. Hair is any way you’d like it, as long as it’s shiny, gorgeous and healthy. Here are some beauty trends to try out for your most dazzling — and slightly daring — look this year!
The New Red Lip
A red pout has always been a staple of chic, and this year is no different. What is new is the finish: a soft stain instead of slick and glossy or matte.
“We saw it on Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway at the Golden Globes this year,” says Emma Willis, a makeup artist with Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge in Los Angeles. “With the rest of the face muted and natural, the total effect was soft and very feminine.”
This year’s hues range from crimson and scarlet to cherry or pink-red, and you can find stains in balms, crayons or pots. Pat it on with your fingers, or for a crisper look, outline the outer edges of you lips with a pencil and then fill in.
Brows aren’t backing down. They’re stronger and thicker than ever. On the fashion runways, wildly exaggerated arches were created with lots of tinted brow gel, powder or pencil and a stay-put wax. You might not want to go quite that bold, but put down the tweezers for a few weeks — except for cleaning up stray hairs well below your arch — and see how you look with more brow-wow.
