2013 has served up some right shockers on the red carpet and there’s been plenty to talk about, but rather than dwelling on the bad (some were actually downright AWFUL) I thought it'd be nice to look back on some of the best celebrity beauty moments of 2013.
During the first half of the year a lot of celebs swapped their polished makeup and groomed hair for something more natural. Sonakshi Singha showed off her beautiful complexion and bone structure with barely-there makeup and natural curls while Esha Gupta toned down her makeup and went for a brighter lip. The result – both of them looked more youthful and fresh faced.
One of the most important and glamorous events of the year has got to be Cannes. Celebs pull out all the stops to be the most papped and talked about on the red carpet, and this year was all about the nose ring! Sonam Kapoor kicked of the trend by donning a huge, bejewelled one and paired it with a gothic, crimson lip – it was chic, edgy and totally unexpected.
Beauty-wise it wasn’t the greatest year for Priyanka Chopra. She’s a pretty girl but her style is all over the place! She has had flashes of brilliance though and this random appearance on the red carpet has got to be one of my favourite looks of hers.
Frieda Pinto also really surprised me when she rocked up on the red carpet with a totally out of character messy top knot and plum stained lip. She’s usually very elegant, classic, and a teeny bit boring so this was a nice change. I have serious lipstick envy.
There were some great red carpet looks this year but I think 2013 belonged to the Kapoor sisters, in particular Karishma. She's been consistently good with her beauty choices and knows how to work with her bone structure without overdoing it. Kareena’s also made some really good beauty choices and this red lip and sleek hair combo has to be one of my all-time favourite looks of hers.
