Best of Beauty - 2016

Happy New Year everyone!

Here are my hands down, holy grail, ride-or-die favorite products from 2016!

Best of Beauty 2016

This foundation stays in place forever and has amazing coverage!  Check out my full review here.

This is a truly great concealer with perfect coverage.  I keep trying others which are also good, but this is still my go-to. 

This powder sets my makeup beautifully and gives a flawless finish to my skin.  I can't go a day without it.

In the pan this blush looks like nothing special but on the skin is a really pretty peach shade and it gives an absolutely amazing sheen to the skin.  

Really all of Sigma's Kabuki brushes are wonderful, but the F80 is my favorite.  You can read my full review of all of the Kabuki brushes here.  Also, you can use code SIGMA2017 for 10% off your order!

If you want budget-friendly makeup brushes, I swear by the ones by Elf Cosmetics!  I have liked every single one I've tried.  My favorite is the Powder Brush.

Sadly this product is sold out but you can purchase split pans of Becca blushes with either Jaclyn Hill's Champagne Pop or Prosecco Pop highlighters.  Both of those highlighters have been my go-to's this year.  You read see my review and swatches of them here.

My go-to eyeshadow palette this year was one I made myself with Makeup Geek eyeshadows in a Z Palette. These are some of the best shadows I've tried, they are pigmented and blend like a dream.  Bitten is my absolute favorite shadow for my outer V/crease area.  Check out this photo on my Instagram of my palette of Makeup Geek shadows.  

This is the blackest, most pigmented, creamiest eyeliner I've ever tried.  It lasts an entire day or night and doesn't budge.  You can see swatches in my review here.

I can't believe I'm only recently discovering this primer!  This makes my lashes look thicker and longer with any decent mascara I've paired it with.  My favorite pairing is with my Chanel Inimitable Mascara which is my holy grail mascara.

This lip liner is super soft and creamy and really pigmented.  I own the shade El Agua which is a beautiful purple-ish mauve.

This is my favorite brand of liquid lipstick I've tried (and at this point I've tried many!).  It's not too drying yet lasts a long time on my lips.  The shade Lolita is a gorgeous rose-brown and looks good on many skin tones.

Jouer are my second favorite liquid lipstick brand.  The shade Noisette is a very pretty brown.  You can check out swatches in my review here.

This recently became my favorite lipgloss shade.  It's a really pretty mauve on me.  The formula isn't too sticky which also means that it doesn't last long but for the price, this is a great product.

If you're a frequent reader of this blog, I'm sure you're sick of me mentioning my love for GlamGlow masks. The SuperMud and YouthMud masks are hands down my favorite skincare product.  Both of these masks clean out my skin and make me look super bright and refreshed.  Check out my full review here.

This is my favorite perfume.  It has a nice mix of woodsy scents as well as floral scents.

This is a really thick body cream that smells amazing!  It smells like a mix of caramel and pistachio.  

This has been my favorite hair product for a few years now.  I spray it on my towel dried hair and it not only cuts down my blow-dry time, but it protects my hair from heat tools and also make it soft and gives it a little bit of shine.  I always buy several bottle of this stuff when Kenra products go on sale at Ulta.

Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron
My favorite hairstyle since I cut my hair into a "lob" in the fall is loose waves.  This curling iron is absolutely perfect for that look.  It has a small clasp, heats up super fast, and has an automatic rotator.  It honestly takes me about 7 minutes to curl all of my hair for work in the morning!  This curling iron has been a life saver for me!  I have the 1" iron and at some point I'd love to buy the thicker one for when my hair is a little longer.  You can read my full review of this curling iron here.

Well those were all my faves from the last year.  What are some of your 2016 favorites??
