You should know it was impossible to narrow this down.
One of my favorite things is trying new products. I love the thrill of the hunt, and being able to review and share my experience with different things here on the blog. Makeup is what I tend to be most experimental with, but it’s hard to find pretty much anything in the “beauty” world that I wouldn’t want to explore.
Based on the Beauty Favorites videos from this past year, here are some of my top makeup, skincare, and hair products!
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – probably my most worn foundation of the year. It offers buildable coverage and looks very natural.
Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – a great foundation that offers such a pretty radiance to the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer in shade 2 – brightens and lightens my under eye area in such a natural way.
Milani Rose Powder Blush in Blossomtime Rose – a very beautiful drugstore blush that wears all day.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette in Light – a game-changer for contouring and highlighting my face.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara in Black – my very favorite mascara.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – This soothes even the driest of lips and tastes good too.
Amika got grit Dry Texture Paste – it’s a perfect product for adding texture through your hair in order to plump it up.

Alterna CAVIAR Anti-Aging Multiplying Volume Styling Mist – a great volumizer for fine hair!
Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara – a drugstore mascara that offers serious volume and thickness.
Becca Soft Light Blurring Powder – it’s like the “Instagram pretty filter” in powder form.
NARS Liquid Blush in Orgasm – the most wearable, flattering pink.
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Liv in Up – this is probably the lip color I wore the most this year! Such a perfect pink.
Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer – a great option for those that prefer a full coverage concealer!
