From Harry Styles' fresh manicure to Hilary Duff's first Instagram beauty tutorial, these were last week's buzziest beauty headlines:

Harry Styles' manicure is inspired by his new album

We're living for Harry Styles' style and most recently, his snazzy-af manicure. The singer released his album, Fine Line, just a week ago and decided to celebrate the launch with digits inspired by all the songs in the album. Case in point: fruit and flower motifs that clearly symbolise tracks in the album such as "Cherry", "Sunflower, Vol. 6" and our personal favourite "Watermelon Sugar".

L.A.-based nail artist Britney Tokyo also painted Styles' nails in neon hues with the letters "Fine Line" over five digits. As if he could anymore stylish.

 

Beyoncé channels her wild side this holiday season

Queen Bey pulled out all the stops at a festive party recently, donning a fierce leopard-printed look replete with matching gloves and deep green accessories (including that impressive Lorraine Schwartz ring). But the icing on the cake was her beauty look—intricate braids, smokey eye makeup, and a hint of mauve on her lower lash lines.

 

Hilary Duff debuts her first beauty tutorial on Instagram

The newlywed gave us some holiday-appropriate makeup inspiration in her two-part tutorial—shot in her bathroom with her son's novice-level piano-playing as the background soundtrack. A key takeaway from her tutorials: a little glimmer goes a long way. Take a leaf out of her book by adding gloss onto your cheekbones then pasting on glittery star-shaped sequins for a festive touch.

Kim Kardashian West's latest magazine cover gets flamed for 'blackfishing'

Kim Kardashian West isn't new to receiving blackface accusations—she was previously flamed for intentionally darkening her skin tone in a KKW Beauty ad, and even wearing fulani braids on the red carpet at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Most recently, she faced backlash for her questionable skin-darkening tactics for a 7Hollywood magazine cover. The reality TV star was called out by fashion watchdog Diet Prada for blackfishing, although some of her supporters have commented that it wasn't technically West's fault, as she wasn't in charge of directing the shoot or editing the photos.
