I could stop buying makeup but I’m not a quitter! LOL Probably one of my favorite quotes! So I’ve always been SUPER into makeup, I used to be a makeup JUNKY… It was boarder line bad because I had 20 of everything and would by new products ALL the time! After a couple of years I realized it’s totally a waste of money to do that!! I learned it’s more important to have amazing essentials then a million items that aren’t that great!
These were the products I got in 2017 and fell in LOVE with!! I used them all time! The first product is AMAZING and got me loving glosses!! It’s the Bareminerals Buttergloss in Groovy! Oh my goodness did this change my mind about lipgloss!! It made my lips look so much fuller and plump! I wore this in almost all my photo’s from 2017!
The next product I want to talk about is this gorgeous pinky peach blush!! I actually already had this in my collection and fell back in love with it! It is a blush by NARS and it’s completely gorgeous! It gives the perfect rosy cheeks and has a beautiful sheen to it! This shade would be beautiful for the coming spring months!
PRIMER ON REPEAT! Okay this little guy does wonders!! I wasn’t sold when this first came out but I decided to try it and I can’t go a day without it!! I recently ran out and had to replace it because my makeup wasn’t the same without it!! They have a travel size (pictured), a bigger bottle and it lasts forever!!
Another product I discovered this year was this Estee Lauder bronzer!! It is GINORMOUS!! Like I don’t think I’ll ever run out!! It has such a beautiful and natural finish!! I am rocking fair skin for the winter months so this was the perfect natural bronzer!! I have the light but it comes in multiple colors for different skin tones.
I can’t stress enough the importance of great makeup brushes!! If you have amazing makeup but your brushes are blah your makeup won’t look flawless at all! I became obsessed with Morphe a couple of years ago and haven’t purchased a brush from another brand since then!! They’re professional quality for half the price!! I purchased these two babies this year and I don’t go a day without them now! The top brush is a white hair brush and I used it for my contour!! When I contour with this brush I don’t even need to touch up because it makes such a sharp line! The second brush is a synthetic blush brush! Oh my goodness… I bought this one on Black Friday and I don’t know how I did my makeup before it! It makes your blush look so smooth and flawless!
I’ve saved the BEST for last!! My favorite makeup purchase of 2017 has to be the Jaclyn Hill Palette!! You guys, everything you heard about this eyeshadow palette is TRUE!! I use this everyday no matter the occasion and I’m always getting compliments on my eyeshadow!! The colors are so versatile because she added some colorful, warm, and cool tones in the palette! Let me know if you want a review on the palette because I can do a blog post on it! They blend so well without any effort at all!
Let me know if you have questions on any of the makeup products I mentioned!
