Favourite makeup of 2017

2017 was an amazing year for makeup, and with so many amazing products released my bank account was feeling pretty sorry for itself! With the new year now here, I thought I’d give you guys an overview of all of my favourite makeup items of 2017.

Primer: Before 2017, I had never really bothered with primers and didn’t understand the big hoo-haa about them. Last year I thought I’d finally see what the fuss was all about! The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer was hands down my favourite. First of all, the packaging is absolutely GORGEOUS, I love how it is gold to match the actual product on the inside. The primer is so silky and smooth and makes my skin look flawless and my foundation to apply beautifully. It really does live up to the hype.

Foundation: I have tried SO many foundations this year to try and work with my combination skin and found that the Bourjois Healthy Mix anti-fatigue foundation was the true winner! I wear the shade ’52 vanilla’ and it is the perfect colour for my skin. I have always been self conscious about my skin and this foundation provides enough coverage to make my skin appear flawless without being too heavy. I also love the demi matte finish which is perfect for the winter months.

Concealer: There is only one concealer that I have repurchased time and time again and that is the Maybelline The eraser eye in the shade ‘light’. It is brightens the under eye and really erases my terrible dark circles… and the best part? It doesn’t crease on me!

Powder: I was very torn between my two favourite powders: The Laura Mercier Loose setting powder and the Rimmel Stay Matte. They are both amazing but the Rimmel powder just takes the lead because of how cheap it is! It keeps my shine at bay for a good 5-6 hours, and a top up doesn’t cause my foundation to look cakey… LOVE.

Bronzer: Hands down, the Benefit Hoola bronzer is the best bronzer on the market. It is the perfect shade for my pale skin so I don’t look like I work with Willie Wonker and is quite cool toned and so is great for contouring! It lasts so long that after nearly two years (yes I know thats gross) I only now got one for Christmas!

Highlighter: Another Benefit win this year with the Dandelion twinkle highlighter. It gives just enough glow without being too blinding for every day wear. It is a beautiful pink shade and I always get compliments whenever i wear it.

Brows: This was a tricky one because I absolutely hate brow maintenance. I only bought this product recently but it is my new favourite and makes doing my brows much less of a chore. I use the colour ’04 Espresso’ which matches my hair brilliantly.

Mascara: Again another recent discovery is the Loreal Lash paradise mascara. It makes such a massive difference to my lashes that I have been asked if I’ve been wearing falsies when wearing it! This has finally knocked my Urban Decay Perversion mascara off the podium.

Eyes: Lastly, the Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette has to take the crown for the best eyeshadow palette I have purchased this year! I was really hesitant to buy this palette, thinking it was overhyped… but after BeautyBay restocked it, I gave in… I am SOOOOO glad I did! The shadows are so pigmented, blend effortlessly and look stunning on the eye! It is going to be a tough one to beat in 2018.

So, those are my favourite makeup items of 2017, comment below which your favourite product has been this year! Thankyou for reading ❤️

    Ohhh I am a total fan of primers! I found a great natural one for my oily skin by Mineral Fusion when I was in the states. Sooo silky and lovely. I enjoyed reading about the YSL one and the othe products too! ?

    • January 6, 2018 / 6:47 pm

      Ooh that sounds perfect for my skin! The YSL is a bit like the benefit porefessional but more slippery! Thankyou for reading lovely ?
