2017 was filled with so many new beauty finds, so it was a bit tricky to narrow this list down to my ultimate favorites! If you’ve watched my YouTube videos or read my beauty posts, you’ll know that I have a couple of tried and true beauty brands that I love – Bobbi Brown, bareMinerals, and Chanel. It’s no surprise that my favorites include several products from those brands! So without further ado, let’s take a peek at my top beauty favorites from this year!
bareMinerals BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation: Hands down my favorite foundation find of the year! This foundation is perfect for combination sensitive skin and has a buildable medium to full coverage. In the summer I was the shade Pecan 18 but in the winter I was the shade Warm Natural 12.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream: I was looking for a lightweight face base during the summer for days when I wanted an effortless look. This CC Cream is really great at evening out skin tones and covering blemishes. There aren’t several shades, but I chose the shade Medium and it matched pretty well.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation: For days when I wanted a lightweight matte coverage, my favorite foundation was this one! I love how smooth this foundation goes on the skin. Another favorite Chanel foundation of mine is the Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, which is perfect for the summer. I am the shade Beige 30.
bareMinerals Original Foundation: This foundation is my holy grail pick. I’ve used this foundation over the years and I always come back to it after trying new face products. I love the flawless finish it gives me and the coverage is superb. I am the shade Medium Beige and I love to pair this with the bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil for all day medium to full coverage.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder: I love to add a bit of bronzer to my face for extra warmth. This bronzing powder is so good! I love the shades Medium and Stonestreet for my light to medium skin tone. Sometimes I even use this bronzer as an eyeshadow for quick everyday makeup.
tarte Amazonian 12-Hour Clay Blush: I fell in love with this blush after receiving it as my birthday gift from Sephora. I just received a kit of these blushes from Greg for Christmas so I can’t wait to try out all of the different shades! I love how the blush is extremely natural. My favorite shade is Paaarty.
Real Techniques Blush Brush: Real Techniques has so many beautiful brushes for makeup! I definitely recommend this one for powder foundations and face products. It’s super soft and fluffy!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer: I love using this concealer under my eyes to brighten up my whole makeup look. My shade is Vanilla.
bareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick: I happened to pickup a set of these lipsticks and they are so comfortable to wear. They glide on so smooth and are super hydrating. My favorite shades are XOX and Mantra.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color: Another favorite lip product of mine is the Sheer Lip Colors by Bobbi Brown. I believe these are being discontinued but I loved the formula and the Shade Ballet Pink is so pretty and natural!
Bobbi Brown Lip Color: My favorite lipstick of all time would be this one. I love how soft the formula is and there are so many different beautiful shades. I love Sandwash Pink for a nude color and the shade Pink for a pop of color on the lips. I recommend this lip product to all my family and friends because it is creamy, hydrating and the color pigment is stunning!
Benefit Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara: My most favorite mascara is this one for length, curl, and volume! The wand has a curl shape to it to really lift and separate those lashes. It gives me a beautiful false lash effect.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara: For irresistible volume, I love using this mascara. You only need a few coats to get fully popping lashes!
e.l.f. Matte Lip Color: My favorite drugstore find of 2017 would have to be these matte lip colors. I have so many shades – Wine, Berry Sorbet, Mulberry Maven, and I love them all! They are a comfortable matte lip color that lasts for such a long time and are a steal for only $3!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette: My favorite eyeshadow palette of all time is this one! I love the mix of shimmer and matte shades. These eyeshadows are so creamy and blend really well, so you can create a variety of eye looks.
