First of all I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! I will join to everyone who says ‘ I can’t believe that 2017 is gone and it’s 2018!’ . To be honest it wasn’t my fave year ever, but with blogging I think I was happy with my journey. It was all about experimenting, trying to find out how I can fit into this blogging world. I realised I don’t want to put pressure on myself, I just want to blog because I like to talk about make up and beauty and girly things. And since that is what I like to do I couldn’t miss an opportunity to collect all my fave beauty bits from 2017 and share them with you. These are deffo my fave posts to read at all times, so lets get into it.
I love eye shadows. Next to mascara they are my fave make up items, so it was actually really hard to choose my fave. Not gonna lie I almost always use Tanya Burr Cosmetics eye shadows and I love them. I used this palette ( Enchanted dream ) a lot this last year, the shades are so pretty and pigmented, can create and easy day look or a smokey evening look too. This was definitely my fave eye shadow palette of this last year.
I definitely wanted to include a mascara, but it was soooo hard to choose just one, but nonetheless I managed. When I heard that this Lash Paradise mascara from L’Oreal was supposed to a dupe for the Better than sex mascara from Too Faced, it intrigued me instantly. It gives you full lashes, a bit clumpy, but I don’t really mind. It is not too extreme, so perfect for everyday wear. I wore it everyday for my holiday and I have to say it is the perfect mascara to wear for a no make up makeup look.
I am a huge fan of the Porefessionals primer by Benefit, however it is a bit pricey, so I decided to look for a cheaper option from the drugstore. I have to stay I still prefer the Porefessionals, but this primer ( Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser by Maybelline ) is also really good, and cheaper. It has a clear colour to it, and the similar texture as the Porefessionals and it does the job. Hides my giant pores on my face. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for good drugstore primer.
I don’t own a lot of blushes. I never have. Just always had a few to choose from and I just never ventured into trying out lots of blushes. That hasn’t really changed, and for most of last year I was using this NYX blush. It is in the shade baby blush, and you need the tiniest amount as it is very pigmented, but looks beautiful on the skin. I prefer pink blushes anyway and this complements my pale skin perfectly.
Another fave product for the cheeks is this Cheek Illuminator by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. Also has a pink undertone, creamy formula, which works well even on top of powder. It is not glittery and gives you a nice and pretty shine.
Lastly it is lip product, cuz I do own many many lippies. Again was hard to choose, but I chose my fave shade from the Matte me up lip paints from BarryM. This was their 35th anniversary limited edition lipkit and I’m happy I got it. It is a perfect dark pink shade lip. Wears easy on the lips, dries down to matte and lasts for hours.
So these were my fave finds for 2017, hope you liked reading about it and don’t forget to share your fave bits in the comments!
Have a nice day!
