I know I’ve only done one favorites list on the blog so far, but I thought it would be fun to look back and share my 2017 favorites with you. So here we go!
koh gen do moisture foundation: This foundation is perfect for no-makeup makeup. It’s a thicker liquid that is medium/buildable coverage that makes your skin look natural but better.
Becca Aqua luminous perfecting concealer: This concealer is the lighter sister to Nars radiant creamy concealer and because its lighter – it doesn’t crease as much. Its luminous so it reflects light and covers blemishes and dark circles really well.
Benefit Precisely my brow pencil: This pencil is perfect. I’ve tried a lot of different brands and this one is the perfect size (very thin) and its hard enough that it doesn’t apply a ton of product at once but not so hard that you have to push and drag it to get to apply product. The color i use, #4, is the only brow pencil that I’ve found that doesn’t have red in it – it’s a perfect cool-toned medium brown.
kelley baker brows highlighting duo: I love using these two to perfect the shape of my brows. They honestly make them looks so much better that you’d swear you got them professionally done. The highlighting pencil comes in two colors – for light and dark-toned skin – and is so easy to blend out that it leaves a natural highlight, unlike using concealer.
kat von d shade+Light contour palette: these powders are so finely milled that they don’t cake up on the face and the contour colors are not too gray or red. I use them all over my face – not just for contouring.
maybelline superstay 24h Foundation: This is a new drugstore favorite. The coverage is definitely full but it is a natural finish instead of a matte one. It lasts a fairly long time but definitely not 24 or even 12 hours. its a great product for a great price.
charlotte tilbury airbrush flawless finish powder: this powder … omg … it really does make you look airbrushed. I set my tzone with it and then use it to touch up if i need and it never look cakey, never.
laura mercier radiance primer: This is my favorite primer because it gives me that ‘lit from within’ glow without having to overdo it on the highlighter. It also helps blur out imperfections when I want to go foundation free (you can check it out in my quick everyday makeup routine)
mac prep+prime 24hr extend eye base: this primer has made doing my eyebrows so much easier because it helps them stay in place all day. this primer is also great for the lids when you’re using glitter shadows. i use it every single day.
