Your favourite ladies in music, who inspired you!

By HT

New Delhi, Dec. 27 -- The year's counting its last days and we are all ready to perk up our NYE's beauty game. Forget Insta-inspiration, and simply turn to your favourite ladies in music, who inspired you to go that extra mile in the makeup department, all year round.

From pop diva Katy Perry's edgy beauty rendition of Cleopatra gone gangsta and singer Meghan Trainor's celebration of fun powder pastels, to 21-year-old (and already a style icon!) Ariana Grande's trademark cascading ponytail - there's so much to learn and so much to do! So, arm yourself with your beauty palette and get ready to hit all the right notes next year, in these iconic looks from 2014 which are inspired by chart-topping music videos.

BEYONCE IN XO

Messy bob & berry hues: Queen Bey made her way through the charts and for all us ladies, our hearts too, with the rough-cut wavy bob and deep-hued lips.

Be inspired: For 2015, take the plunge and go short with your crop. Also, your go-to lip hue should be a shade of bold wine, at least till the winter chill stays.

IGGY AZALEA IN FANCY

'Clueless' chic: Remember the iconic 1995 movie, Clueless? Iggy's look in the video seems like an update on the 'rich kid' highschool style from the film. We love the clean makeup and the enviable long locks that spell all-business.

Be inspired: A glass-pastel gloss makes all the impact in Iggy's look. Less is more, and in 2015, remember this clean rule.

TAYLOR SWIFT IN SHAKE IT OFF

The red lip princess: There's no getting away from Taylor Swift and all the inspiration she gives out! We are forever in love with her trademark red lip.

Be inspired: Red lip rocks across-seasons and let it be your bestie next year, too.

ARIANA GRANDE IN PROBLEM

That ponytail: We just might do a double take if we spot Ariana without her favourite, tumbling ponytail which of course, totally ruled this video.

Be inspired: If you, too, are blessed with lengthy tresses, you've got to try the oh-soglamorous waterfall ponytail.

MEGHAN TRAINOR IN ALL ABOUT THE BASS

Pop-high: As she celebrates the beauty of lady curves in the video, Meghan also gives us bubblegum-hued makeup inspiration that reminds us of cupcake and candy colours for the next season.

Be inspired: Go lilac, lemon and powder pastel high when the weather smells of summer again. And yes, the floral headband is pure fun.
