Since tomorrow is the last day of 2016 (SO CRAZY!), I wanted to make a video to recap my favorite beauty products that I have been loving this past year. As I mentioned in the video, some of the products were launched in 2016, and others were ones I had discovered in 2016. I will list all of the items down below with a brief description of why I have been obsessed with them.
Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist: This gives your skin a burst of hydration before makeup application. I also love spraying it onto my foundation brush before I apply my foundation to create a more hydrated and dewy look. You can also set your makeup with this spray when you are finished.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector: If you want to glow, add a drop or two of this in with your foundation. If you have dry skin you will love this product! You can also use this as a liquid highlight if you don’t want to mix it in with your foundation.
Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid: If you want dewy, radiant, glowing skin, you need this foundation! This foundation has great coverage and it will make your skin appear to be very healthy and hydrated.
Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done: This foundation is lightweight and perfect for everyday wear. This reminds me of a BB Cream or tinted moisturizer, and it has SPF 20 in it!
Benefit Dew the Hoola Liquid Bronzer: If you prefer using cream products over powder, you will love this liquid bronzer for a more hydrated look. If your foundation is too light after a spray tan, add a drop of this bronzer into your foundation to make it match your tanned skin.
RCMA No Color Powder: This is the best and most affordable loose powder for setting your under eyes for a flawless, creaseless look.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: This concealer is honestly the best in the world! It is so full coverage but it feels so light on the skin. It does not crease and is not cakey…it is perfection! This sells out so quickly so get it while it’s in stock!!
Z Palette and Anastasia Beverly Hill Shadows: Creating your own eye shadow palette is the way to go! You know you will love and use every color in the palette if you create it yourself. These shadows are pigmented, creamy, and super easy to blend. The colors in my palette are Gleam, Fawn, Birkin, Dusty Rose, Rich Velvet, Smoke, and Noir.
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Eyes to Mesmerise Cream’ Eyeshadow: I have the shade Marie Antoinette which is the most beautiful bronzey/gold shade that looks beautiful on the eyelid and blended into the crease. I want to purchase more of these colors in 2017!
Marc Jacobs Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner: This is the perfect eyeliner to line your upper and lower waterline! It’s super black and it stays in place all day long.
Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner: Just for your bottom waterline, this nude eyeliner makes your eyes appear larger and more awake.
Revita Lash Volumizing Primer: I found this amazing eyelash primer that is bright blue instead of white, so it makes your eyelashes much darker, thicker, and longer looking after you apply your mascara.
Mac Extended Play Gigablack Lash: This mascara has a tiny little wand that is perfect for coating your bottom lashes with mascara.
NYX Butter Lip Gloss: These glosses are my favorite because of the color payoff and consistency. They are creamy instead of sticky, and the color is long lasting. Plus they are only $4.99 a piece!
Fake Bake Sunless Tanner: This is my all time favorite self tanner and I talk about why I love it and how I use it in this post.
OPI Gel Nail Polish ‘Let’s Be Friends’: This is the most gorgeous light pink/white color of nail polish I’ve ever used. I loved it so much I ordered my own bottle to take to the nail salon every time.
