Happy New Year beauties!!! I always get super emotional and excited when we welcome a new year. This year I’m even more excited to share my beauty faves of 2017! Keep reading to find out which beauty products made the cut!
Ok, I must talk about my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder first. I wrote about it before, but I use this stuff DAILY! It sets any foundation and concealer I use so well and doesn’t make it look cakey at all. This stuff makes your skin look super flawless, like there’s a filter on it and it translates to photos as well! I am definitely repurchasing this once I hit pan because I honestly don’t think I can live without it– and yes it is definitely necessary for me to be this dramatic because it is that good!
Next up on my faves list is the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. This mascara adds so much volume to my lashes its insane. The first time I applied this I applied it to one eye first to compare and omg its astonishing. The best part of it all is that you can find this at your local drug store, Target or Ulta. I was using this everyday until I used it all up. It doesn’t flake either, and lasts long– I would apply it in the morning and go to work for 8 hours; add on the one hour commute to and from work this mascara would last for 10 hours! Definitely a must!
I was kind of obsessed with a couple of foundations in 2017, but if I had to choose, my number one is still the Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation (read more about it here) It is full coverage yet super light weight. The range of shades is huge, so matching isn’t a horrible ordeal. This is my go to foundation when I go to events or when I want to get all full on glam.
To piggy back on full coverage, my favorite concealer is the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, which you can purchase here. This stuff is super full coverage, I mean all you need is a dab of it and it will cover up a whole eye. For an everyday use, I absolutely love the Maybeline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (buy it here or at your drugstore). It covers well and is lightweight, it’s truly great for everyday use.
For bronzer, I’ve been using the Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer (shop for it here). I use this along with my big morphe brush to dust it on and add some color to my face. I love the color, how buttery it feels and how well it blends. It brings a huge pan and mirror in the compact, so you get a good amount of product and a nice mirror for the price 🙂
Now picking my favorite highlighter was really difficult because I have like a million at this point. But, of all the highlighters I have I always go back to the same old Champagne Pop by Becca with Jaclyn Hill. I just love the way it looks on my skin tone and how pigmented it is. I can’t help it, I always go back to the Pop.
This post is already super long so I decided to end it with my favorite makeup removing wipe because, honestly after a day of wearing makeup, nothing feels better than taking it all off! Now, I’ve tried tons of wipes, but the one that has stuck is the Yes To Tomatoes Blemish Clearing wipes. I’ve repurchased these 3 times already, and it’s because I think they have contributed to the decrease in my breaking out. They don’t leave that gross residue behind after using them either, and they’re practically non-scented. So it’s a win on all counts!
That’s all for my beauty faves of 2017! Stay tuned for my skincare faves of 2017 and my 2017 flops!
