This past year was rough, but the one win I had was my skin and beauty routine. There are some gems in there that I swear by! After removing my lash extensions of eight months I definitely had to step it up. These products made me feel like my life was together, even when it was in shambles. I have one item that is missing because I’ve used it all up. It is, The Original Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, which is linked below!
Comment & let me know your favorites of 2017!
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder || Link: Powder
This is my favorite setting powder out of everything I’ve tried. I don’t like my face looking cakey or too matte. It makes my foundation look flawless and I can also bake under my eyes with it, without it drying out my under eyes.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost lipgloss (Pink Sorbet) || Link: Lipgloss
This lipgloss has hyaluronic acid acid in it, which helps keep the moisture in your lips. The texture is just slightly sticky where its not too creamy or slimy. I also love the color, it lightens my lips just a little and gives it such a nice gloss.
Manefit Energizing Rose Hydrogel Mask || Link: Face Mask
I love hydrogel masks because its not a fabric texture but a gel. It’s my favorite mask to use when I need EXTRA help because it calms my face and makes it feel moisturized but not sticky.
Batiste Dry Shampoo (Fresh) || Link: Dry Shampoo
This is has been my favorite drugstore dry shampoo. It doesn’t leave my hair sticky and it adds volume to my hair while taking away the oils. It has been a life saver and I’ve used about six bottles of it. With my color treated hair, I can’t was my hair like that so this is my go to. Check out TJ Maxx or Marshall’s for a better deal. The smell is also subtle and clean too!
Lorac Pro Palette 3 || Link: Pro Palette
I LOVE THE LORAC PALETTES. I’ve gotten every one of them but I’ve have been into browns and mauves for a while now and it has all the combinations that I like to put on my eyes. There are 10 matte eyeshadows and 10 shimmers. The shadows blend well with little fallout on the eyes. The eyeshadow also comes with a decent size primer.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette ||Link: Modern Renaissance Palette
This palette is my go to. Whenever I travel I bring this with me. I love the matte and shimmer combinations. There is a great selection of mauves, beiges, and brown’s. It also comes with a double ended brush that I use all the time, but the blending brush is a little stiff.
Tatcha Essence || Link: Essence
After the first time using this, I noticed a HUGE difference. An essence helps the skin absorb the serums and creams you put on your face. I put this on every night after I cleanse my face then add my serum and/or face mask.
Tarte Shape Tape || Link: Concealer
This. Is. The. Stuff. Full coverage concealer that does not look cakey. What more could a girl ask for?
Eyelure Lengthening Eyelashes in N115 || Link: Falsies
These are my favorite natural looking lashes that I wear with EVERY look. I wear these to work with no eyeshadow or with any eye look before I go out.
Lush Dark Angel Cleanser || Link: Dark Angel Cleanser
I use this charcoal cleanser 3 times a week and it helps take all the dirt and toxins out. I tend to get blackheads, this helps clean out my pores and prevent them. Warning: it leaves your sink dark, so you have to clean your sink at the end of the week.
Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Smoothing Primer || Link: MUF Primer
I mentioned before, I have issues with blackheads, meaning I sadly have big pores. This blurs out of pores and smoothes my skin allowing my foundation to sit flawlessly on my face. ***Flawless
Fenty Beauty Foundation || Link: Fenty Foundation
I love this foundation! Not too matte and feels light on the face. My skin looks flawless in pictures BUT only when I apply it with a brush. With a beauty blender there is way too much product on my face and the sponge soaks it all up.
Secret Nature Lemon Brightening Mask || Link: Brightening Mask
This is hands down my favorite sheet mask and it is so affordable. I buy these at The Face Shop and it is usually buy 5 get 5 free. I use this mask before a night out or when my face looks dull. I wear this the night before and I wake up with my face looking brighter and awake. When I have time, I even put this on before I go out and my foundation ALWAYS ends up beautiful.
The Original Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Serum || Link: Face Serum
I have been using this stuff for three months almost every night, except when I’m super lazy. I noticed my face has not been affected by the winter at all. It leaves my face supple and smooth without it being sticky or oily. It’s also SO affordable at $6.80 you can’t get straight up hyaluronic acid cheaper than that!
