We’re nearing the end of yet another year, and that means one thing: it’s time for those flashbacks, look backs and round-ups to remind us what actually went down in 2019.
While some of these beauty moments feel like they happened just yesterday, others will (unfortunately) make you realise just how quickly time goes, since they feel like they took place at least five years ago.
It’s time to take a look at the best beauty moments of 2019… enjoy!
Lady Gaga being Lady Gaga at the Met Gala

After her stunning award-season transformations on the various red carpets (and yes, we loved every single look!), it was, however, a breath of fresh air when Lady Gaga went full Lady Gaga on us for the Met Gala.
Not only did she give a performance by slowly reducing the amount of clothing she had on, she gave us Gaga glam at its best: long (and we mean looong) gold eyelashes, bold make-up, bright pink lips and fabulous hair bows, and we just couldn’t get enough of it!
Lupita Nyong’o beautiful in blue
While Lupita doesn’t ever really put a foot wrong when it comes to her looks, we love the way she embraced the coloured eyelash trend at the Golden Globes – and knocked it out of the park.
The blue lashes were subtle but very much there, and the rest of her make-up was kept rather lowkey, allowing her eyes to really pop. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate that her – just, wow!
Katy Perry making us want to get a pixie cut pronto
Katy Perry’s been rocking a shorter ‘do for some time now, but when she stepped out at the Grammys this year, she virtually had us all booking hair appointments to make the chop.
Perhaps it had something to do with her flawless make-up – those cheeks, that lip colour, those lashes – or the way she kept everything so minimal, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen anyone rock the pixie cut so well!
Sophie Turner making us forget that we hate glitter
When glitter started trending up a storm in the beauty world, common folk like us all had mild panic attacks. “How will we ever get rid of the glitter?” we all thought. And then we saw Sophie Turner at the Met Gala, and we just about raided our kids’ rooms to find ALL the glitter. Her make-up, her hair – could it be dreamier?
Stormi Webster putting us all to shame for Halloween

Seriously, is there anything cuter than a baby or toddler dressed like an adult? We think not. Especially when said toddler is rocking a Met Gala look, complete with purple wig and a flawless complexion.
Granted, the flawless complexion might have a lot more to do with youth than perfect make-up, but we still classify as Stormi Webster rocking mama Kylie Jenner’s Met Gala look for Halloween – down to the beauty – a top beauty moment of this year indeed.
