2017 Beauty Favourites

Smash Box photo finish primer

2017-09-03 09.01.48

First things first, this year I have learned the true value of primers and the difference they have in the way the foundation looks and lasts. I experimented with a few different ones, but I always found myself going back to the Smashbox photo finish primer time and time again. This primer has a velvet finish and every time I applied, I saw a huge difference in the finish of my foundation. I also realized that every time I used this primer my foundation would last all day.

Too Faced Born This way Foundation

2017-04-16 14.02.58

I can not rave enough about this foundation. I am not the type of person who buys the same product over and over again, I love to experiment with new products, but for some reason, I am on my third bottle of this baby. I know foundations wear differently on different skin types, but with that being said I used this foundation on so many different people and they all ended up buying it after they saw the finish. This foundation makes my skin look natural, but it has a pretty full coverage. I have an entire blog post reviewing this foundation a couple of months ago. And here I am again raving about it still.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

When it comes to concealers there are just so many products out there that I wish I could try this year. But last year I have to admit that the product I used over and over again is the Urban Decay Naked Concealer. What I love about this product is that it is light, full coverage and the line itself has a huge range of colors to suit so many skin tones.

Benefit Hervana Blusher

I can’t narrow down my favorite blushers down into a single one, but if I really must, then I would say the one I reached out the most this year would be Hervana by Benefit Cosmetics. The blusher in this palette is a swirl of so many different light pinks that just give the complexion a natural flush that leaves the skin looking radiant and fresh. I can say this has been a staple in my makeup drawer for years now and I use it year round because it seems to suit me when I am winter fair or summer tan.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

2017-09-03 09.01.11

I raved over and over about this bronzer and I stand by my word. Chocolate Soleil bronzer by too faced is just the perfect tan glow that I need to warm up the temples of my face. What I love so much about this bronzer is that it is matt and doesn’t look ashy or muddy on the skin. This bronzer leaves my skin looking like it was freshly sunkissed even in the midst of winter.
