The Best New Year’s Eve Beauty Inspo from Celeb Makeup Artists and Hairstylists

The year is finally coming to a close — which means you’ve got four days to figure out your New Year’s Eve look. Since most (ahem, all) of us can’t afford a full NYE glam squad like the stars, the next best thing is to scroll through Instagram (naturally) and copy looks straight from the dream team members themselves.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best beauty inspiration from top celebrity makeup artists and hairstylists, from A-lister talent Charlotte Tilbury to Kardashian go-to Mario Dedivanovic and more. Should you be stumped on whether to go with a classic Old Hollywood-inspired face or an out-of-this-world glitter look, allow the snaps below to be your New Year’s Eve beauty guide.

Stay tuned as we’ll be adding to this list as more Insta photos catch our 2017-ready eye.

For Palermo’s lips, Tilbury used Lip Cheat Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner in Pillowtalk ($22) and K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nude Kate ($32).
