31 Instagram-Worthy Beauty Looks To Try This January

December 14th, 2016 was a good day for Instagram users. Why? Because that was the day the app added a "Saved" section to every profile, instantly giving all of us the ability to secretly catalog any post.

For beauty lovers, this was big. Gone were the days of screenshotting a notable makeup look or palette to buy, only to lose it in the mess of photos in our camera roll. Now, if we spy something we love, we can simply click "save" and add it to our private vault of inspiration images.

That being said, there's no denying the fact that inspiration can be hard to find when you're inundated with hundreds — nay, thousands — of images daily. That's why we decided to share the photos we've archived in the past month. Hopefully, it'll get your creative juices flowing for the next. Ahead, check out 31 looks to try this January.

The sticky texture of a layer of eye gloss might take a little getting used to, but it's a simple way to up the ante on an otherwise average makeup look. Take Jourdan Dunn's look for example, glowing skin and an itty bitty cat-eye are by no means new trends, but a few dabs of gloss on the center of her eyelids take her look into edgier territory.
Leave it to Zendaya to create the perfect unexpected winter look by pairing yellow and terracotta shadow.
One of our favorite ways to rock a bold lip is by keeping things minimal on the rest of the face — really minimal.
Or go all the way, like Olivia Culpo, by pairing a bold lip with lashings of clumpy mascara for a more dramatic take on the trend.
There’s a reason everyone and their mother has been spotted rocking monochromatic makeup — it’s a foolproof way to instantly look polished. Here, blogger @bbyg6rl matches her brown lipstick to her eyeshadow.
We love highlighting the inner corners of our eyes with frosty pale hues like pink or orange, but for those who want a little more impact, try bolder shades like blue.
This look combines two trends we love: rust eyeshadow and inner-corner strobing. Just be sure to choose complementary colors when pairing inner-corner strobing with bold shadow.
New Year's Eve may be behind us, but that doesn't mean we're ditching glitter. Our pick? These easy-to-use glitter pastes from Lemonhead.
Not feeling glitter on the eyes? Try it on the lips instead by patting loose glitter onto your favorite lipstick.
Sometimes all you need to rock an aubergine lip is, well, just that. Deep lipstick and barely-there eyes are one of our favorite trends we predict will be all over your Instagram feed this year.
This eye look takes brand loyalty to a whole new level. No need to run out to the craft store to find itty bitty gold letters though, an easier take on the trend involves etching your favorite logos onto your lids using just gold liquid liner.
A cat-eye and a red lip are a classic combination that always works, especially when paired with fresh, glowing skin.
In case you couldn’t tell, we love dotted liner. Model Scarlett Costello tried the trend by skillfully dotting her lids with navy liner rather than black.
Who said you can't wear a bold lip and a bold eye at the same time? Makeup artist Kim Bum Seok makes it look easy by pairing green shadow with red lipstick.
The easiest way to work more color into your daily makeup look? Swap out your neutral palette for pink shadow.
Dotted liner isn't just easy to do, it's super flattering, too. One dot on the center of your lower lashline will instantly make your eyes look bigger.
Make a statement by lining the outer corner of your eye with bright blue liner.
Makeup artist Anne Sophie Costa makes the case for all peach makeup. Our favorite way to rock the trend? Using a multi-use stick on the lips, eyes, and cheeks.
By juxtaposing soft brows and dewy skin with crisp eyeliner, Imaan Hammam managed to rock a look that's at once glamorous and natural.
We don’t know what we love more, DJ twins Simi and Haze's two-toned eyes or lips. The looks don’t require any advanced makeup skills (or a twin for that matter) — all you need are two different colored eyeshadows or lipsticks.
Black lipstick only seems intimidating. Case in point: Blogger Imani Shanté let the shade stand out by pairing it with a touch of liner and highlighter.
Sometimes a few individual falsies are all you need to make a statement — especially when they’re placed strategically to mimic the clumpy lashes of the ‘60s.
We’ve loving Olivia Munn’s fresh take on a classic red lip. Tip: Pair it with fresh skin and a totally bare eyelid.
Model Duckie Thot demonstrates the inner-corner highlighting trend with warm bronze shadow.
Upgrade your cat-eye with something geometric. As seen on the models at Miu Miu's runway show, all you need is a little patience and lots of black liquid liner. (And maybe a cotton swab dipped in remover, too!)
This is the perfect time to whip out deep, rich colors like burnt orange, terracotta, and warm browns.
Contrasting textures is an easy way to keep your look modern. Case in point: This look by Katie Jane Hughes that features super-glossy lips and matte eyes.
If you ask us, peach is the new nude this year. Don’t believe us? Just ask Kate Bosworth.
Drag artist Duc Tran may be known for his jaw-dropping transformations, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t showcase more minimal looks, too. Here the makeup artist wore a pink lip stain on the center of his lips to create an ombré effect.
Brick lipstick is a subtle alternative to the orangey reds we saw all summer.
Tired of black and brown smoky eyes? Try reaching for shades of blue instead. Bonus points if you use a metallic shadow for a more luxurious finish.
