Sometimes it's the subtlest changes that have the most impact. None of the following three celebrities underwent a major makeover in 2014, yet all suddenly, somehow, looked even more beautiful than usual. Don't you agree?
1. Gwen Stefani
I've been the biggest Gwen fangirl since I was in high school, and I always think she looks amazing. But seeing her on The Voice this year, I seriously couldn't stop staring; it's like she hasn't aged a single day since Tragic Kingdom. (Read what she recently had to say to us about looking awesome at any age!). I can't even pinpoint what she might be doing differently with her hair and makeup, but the skin care game is obviously strong with this one.
This is another lady I've crushed on forever and ever—since the days when she was merely another model on the pages of my beloved Seventeen magazine. (Clearly I have a thing for blonds who don't take themselves too seriously.) And like Gwen, she's had a particularly glowing year, with skin that has such a healthy, radiant glow, highlighted with punchy lip colors.
3. Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn has appeared here on our beauty blog quite a bit over the past few years, since she's always trying out cute hair and makeup looks—but suddenly, she's turned into a total bombshell, thanks to longer hair and bronzier skin (paired with occasional pops of seriously awesome lip color). Both are totally working for her!
