The #lovelieriehalloffame Awards: Our 5 Favorite Looks From 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, we felt it was important to take a glimpse back at a couple of the best makeup looks and trends of the year. 

1. Glossy Lids

As @whitneyalexxxis shows us, glossy lids often made (make?) for an almost-"editorial" edgy end result, especially when paired with sparkly lips.

2. Pastel Hair Hues

Color-kissed tress confections—à la this creation by @catecutdye—made a big splash earlier this year and we could not have been more thrilled. We are crossing our fingers that this lock movement continues into 2017. 

3. Two-Toned Everything

I've got the best bitch face... Im nice though I swear 😅✌️🙈

From two-toned lips to split dye-jobs, beauty fanatics whole-heartedly embraced a "twice as nice" philosophy in 2016 and the world was better for it.

4. Rose Gold

No one can deny that rose-gold was THE color of 2016. It was everywhere; including pretty makeup looks (i.e. this one from @astriraaket, obviously).

5. Bright Color Schemes

MsChinaBell demonstrates just how marvelous bright colors can be; a realization that many a makeup experimenter discovered this year. No wonder so many companies have started churning out atypically-colored lipsticks.

Can't wait to see what the upcoming year has in store for us...hopefully none of these loathed-by-Mariana trends though.
