Best Makeup Tutorials | A Quick Look Back at 2016
Over the past 12 months, Makeuptutorials has shared TONS of tutorials, reviews, tips, and tricks to help you feel and look great anytime, anywhere. I personally have plenty of favorites but so far, these 18 makeup looks are my well-loved tutorials. Feel free to revisit them or even recreate the looks, especially for the upcoming New Year’s Eve party. It’s time to stand out and look every inch your best and true self! 🙂
1. Celebrity Makeup Tutorials[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BzgG-QSHN1j/ hidecaption=true width=625]
Let’s face it, a lot of our looks – and choices – are inspired by celebrities, whether fiction or nonfiction. And I am one of them (teehee!). So it’s not surprising if this website has featured a lot of Hollywood-inspired makeup tutorials like Kylie Jenner’s looks on Instagram![instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BNtGTD_jLdA/ hidecaption=true width=625]
Olivia Munn doesn’t just have awesome brows, she really has a great makeup, which works well with her even skin tone. To recreate her dazzling Oscar’s 2016 look, go here.
My favorite makeup brush is yours for free, grab it here.
Didn’t I say we also love looks of our beloved fictional characters? Topping the list is that of the Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi. While this may seem fitting for Halloween, you can also wear the dewy look anytime (and it’s a perfect way to wait patiently for GOT’s the last season). Want to know how to achieve the makeup? Read this post.
2. Holiday Makeup Tutorials
Some of my most-read and best makeup tutorials are holiday looks. Of course, who doesn’t want to be glamorous and chic at a time when everyone’s expected to get together? I have several of them, but these ones are my top choices. First is the glamorous holiday makeup tutorial by Nikkietutorials (get her collab makeup with Too Faced here). I super love the makeup because it’s fresh yet sultry, classy yet sexy. Amazing balance of smoky eyes, dewy skin, and red lipstick.
I had a difficult time picking the best makeup tutorials for the Halloween, but I have to settle for this look mainly for one reason: details. It looks intricate, but it’s actually quite easy to do. If you want to do this for your next Halloween party, you better read this tutorial.
And before we say adieu to 2016, a New Year’s Eve makeup tutorial made it to the list! I am not a big fan of glitters, but I like how they add a beautiful contrast to the red lips and sparkle to the minimal makeup. They remove the dullness of the look without demanding too much attention.

3. Seasonal Makeup Guides[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BFRtOujJ0RF/ hidecaption=true width=625] I believe there’s a right makeup for every season. That’s why the Makeuptutorials team strives to give you helpful makeup and beauty tips and tricks, as well as the latest trends, fit for summer, winter, fall, and spring. Two are right here. The first one is actually a springtime look, so the makeup appears fresh and colors are bright. However, I love it even more because it shows you how to do makeup even if you have acne!
A lot of my season-themed articles are meant for fall, and this is one of the best makeup tutorials for the season. Do you want to know why? It’s wearable! Get the same look here.

Fresh and minimal makeup is a huge trend this year, and what better way to celebrate that (because I love such look) than to do this.

5. Makeup Trends[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BJKkltHjkl9/ hidecaption=true width=625] Korean mania has gone global! More women are becoming obsessed with Korean beauty and makeup, which isn’t much of a wonder knowing how glossy and smooth their skin appears to be. From puppy eyes to aegyo-sal, learn to do 9 Korean-inspired looks here.
Bright lips are pretty much the common theme this year as well, and red alternatives like berries, purples, and plums are so hot especially last fall and this winter. This tutorial may help make you feel comfortable wearing purple lips.
While I don’t want a grunge look this year, that doesn’t mean you can do away with it completely. For example, you can do the soft grunge look, which is perfect for everyday wear since it’s not intense.
