We’re suckers for a best-of-the-year list that allows us to get down to brass tacks with our music and movie consumption. But, why should the A/V club have all the fun? We asked our favorite makeup artists to dish on their new beauty discoveries that have become kit staples of 2013. Trust us, they've worked with everything new in cosmetics. (They test just about every beauty release before creating the looks you see in magazines and on red carpets, after all.)
So, when they say something's good, we believe them. Read on, and you will, too. Just don't blame us if you start crushing hard on some of these finds. These are the tools and products that changed these artists' work for the better. Just imagine what they can do for you.
