One of the most fun parts of what I do is being able to try so many new products throughout the year. I love makeup and the challenge of finding the best of the best in order to share it with you here on the site! So, without further adieu, here are my top face makeup products of the year.
BUT REALLY QUICK-I’m sure I’ve raved about something that I’ve forgotten to mention here so this is the best I could do from memory!
Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer – This is a full coverage concealer that works for under eye areas as well as blemishes or dark spots. It’s a matte finish and does.not.move until you remove it with makeup remover. This is the only reason I actually looked awake after my daughter was born 😉
Sephora bronzer – I love this bronzer. It’s not overly shimmery or reflective and adds the nicest warm glow to the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow – A very indulgent purchase but perhaps one of my favorite makeup products ever. I absolutely love my makeup on days when I use this palette, it’s beautiful.
Laura Mercier Secret Under Eye Brightening Powder – If you aren’t setting your concealer, you’re doing it wrong. This translucent powder doesn’t settle into fine lines, it simply sets the concealer and takes away any tackiness that may be left behind. It also brightens that area as well!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation – This is such a great find. It’s a medium buildable foundation that looks so natural on the skin. It feels light, lasts all day, and makes your skin look glowy and healthy.
Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder – This makes any makeup, from the lightest coverage to a full coverage, last forever. It was my go-to on humid days in the summer when I wanted my makeup to last. It has a touch of color but is very light.
Becca Secret Brightening Corrector – I’ve found that I like this best when it’s applied more towards my inner corners versus all the way under my eye but it adds the nicest glow and reflection to look awake and rested.
Becca Glow Glaze stick – On days that I’m not working I keep my makeup really simple/minimal. This glow stick, whether applied on my naked face, or on top of concealer, makes my skin look like I just had a facial and is super healthy and youthful.
Becca Soft Light Blurring Setting Powder – I wore this setting powder a lot during my pregnancy with Emily and always got comments about my skin. I swear it was this stuff and not the “pregnancy glow”!
L’Oreal Magic Lumi highlight – This is a creamy highlight serum in a tube that adds a healthy brightness to dark areas of your face.
Becca Skin Love foundation – A creamier option than Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, with more coverage and a slightly more glowy finish.
NARS liquid blush in Orgasm – This is such a pretty pink color for blush, I wore it so often! There is a powder version as well.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away concealer – A very natural, brightening concealer that covers beautifully. I would say this is medium natural coverage.
Charlotte Tilbury Glowing Face Palette – A gorgeous palette, like everything from CT, that is perfect for traveling. I use this almost daily!
