Maybelline ‘Fit Me Foundation’ Dewy & Smooth (shade 210): While I love quite a few foundations, I always make sure I have a backup of the Fit me foundation. It makes my dry skin look glowing and the amount of yellow undertones in this shade makes it even more perfect with a fake tan. I’ve tried the matte and poreless version and I did not like that one on my skin type.
RCMA No Color translucent powder: I decided to give this a try because everyone was raving about it this year and I haven’t stop using it since I bought it. If you’re on the look out for a good, basic everyday setting powder, then I recommend you give this one a try.
Benefit ‘Shy Beam’: When I first saw that this was a matte highlighter, I was very confused. How was I going to get that glow when there was no sheen to catch the light? While I also use this under my other highlighter, my favorite way to use this product is under my eyes. I have very dark circles so using this under my concealer acts as the perfect base to brighten the eyes.
Tarte ‘Park Avenue Princess’ Palette: My absolute go-to contour/blush/highlight palette. I love tarte, and even though this isn’t a new product, love that the park avenue princess bronzer is paired with a gorgeous blush and highlight. I always use it when I’m in a rush because everything I need is in one place.
Jouer ‘Citrine’ highlighter: I feel like Jouer really stepped it up this year. While I love their new lip cremes, this highlighter has become my addiction, which is saying a lot since this year was the year of highlighter. It has the most perfect gold undertones and looks beautiful on most skin tones.
Milani ‘Luminoso’ blush: To put it simply, if you don’t have this blush, you absolutely NEED it.
Tartelette in Bloom eyeshadow palette: I love this palette because ALL the colors are very wearable and you can do an easy daytime look or use the darker colors for a more dramatic look. While I also love the Modern Renaissance palette, I feel that the tartelette palette is more versatile.
YSL ‘Black Opium’ perfume: I’ve seen this perfume everywhere this year and I totally understand why. I still haven’t met anyone yet who didn’t like this scent. It’s so intoxicating and I always get asked what I’m wearing. I also absolutely love the coffee and vanilla notes because it makes it different from other perfumes on the market.
Zoya in April: While Essie polishes will always have my heart, I’ve been wearing this color so much recently. It is a gorgeous neutral pinky-nude and is a great basic go-to polish.
I’d love to hear some of your favorites of 2016!
