What Were Your Favorite Beauty Looks of 2012?

By December 27, 2012

My favorite beauty trend--the so-called "oxblood" red lipstick that is currently hot, is a color I've always worn.  I call it brick red.

I wasn't crazy about 2012's hottest color--tangerine--at least not on me, but I did like it as a lipstick shade on others.

As for nail art, I love it--just not too much of it!

Speaking of nails, there was First Lady Michelle Obama's gray nail polish that caused a bit of a frenzy and Rihanna's 24K gold manicure. I didn't care about either nail lacquer, but the amount of coverage for those stories was fascinating.

What were your favorite beauty trends of the year?  What made you scratch your head and wonder, "Why?" I'd love to know.

Meanwhile, I have four new articles that will take you through this year's best and worst beauty trends:
