I am so excited to be sharing my long awaited 2016 beauty favourites! I feel like every year my style evolves a little bit and I have fallen in love with different products over the year. Our local mall has put in a Sephora, so over the past year I always seem to find myself browsing in there (and spending way too much time and money there haha) that I have really expanded my love for makeup during 2016! In today’s post, I wanted to share some of the products that I have completely gone through, and some that I have discovered and have been loving throughout the year. Of course, I am always in the market for new makeup products, whether it be drugstore or high-end, so please let me know in the comments what kind of products you have been loving during 2016!!
I LOVEE this highlighter! I am really not a fan of a harsh, unnatural highlight that blinds everybody who you look at! I love that this highlighter has such a natural, illuminating glow to it, that makes you look really healthy and awake! I do like to highlight quite a bit (cheekbones, the bridge and the tip of my nose and my brow bone) so I can highlight as much as I like without looking like a lightbulb 🙂
This primer has such a luxurious formula! Every time I apply this highlighter to my face, I feel like I am applying liquid pearls all over my face. (Can you tell that I really love to have healthy, hydrated looking skin!?), and this primer makes my skin so glowy!
This concealer has been my go-to concealer for as long as I have been wearing makeup! I struggle mostly with dark circles under my eyes and very dry skin so this concealer conceals all my dark circles, with a medium to light coverage. I have found that when I layer the BECCA primer, with this concealer, and my Laura Mercier powder, my concealer stays under my eyes ALL DAY!
I wanted to invest in a really good powder that I knew would make my makeup last all day and that would keep everything in place without me looking oily or my makeup creasing at the end of the day. This Laura Mercier powder is MAGIC! It is translucent, so it does not provide any coverage, but it sets my makeup so nicely, and I know that my under-eye concealer won’t budge at all during the day!
I don’t normally buy high-end mascara, just because I go through a bottle almost every month! I LOVE this Maybelline one! When I look for a mascara, I want one that lengthens and curls my lashes (I love having super long eyelashes!) and does not clump! (Every now and then, I will treat myself to the Benefit Rollerlash mascara. This is my all-time FAV mascara! Even with just 2 coats, I have huge eyelashes, and people always ask what mascara I am using when I wear it! :))
I bought this cleanser back at the beginning of the summer, and I have been using it 2 times a day, and I just ran out! This cleanser literally smells like a rose garden, and it has a really creamy, whipped formula, and it feels so luxurious every time I wash my face!
I am so sad that I ran out of this treatment!! I got this treatment from the GORGEOUS Sarah Therese when we met up for tea this summer, and it has cleared up my skin like no other product! During the summer, I can get a few spots due to the sunscreen that clogs my pores, and within days my spots were gone! (Sarah has a video all about Paula’s Choice products! You can check it out here!)
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Please keep Marley, Vienna and I in your prayers as we have exams next week!
