2015 Beauty Favorites
Hi everyone! Yesterday I posted my everyday 2015 Favorites and today I am sharing my 2015 Beauty Favorites! I hope you enjoy!
I found the BEST mascara combination this past year and I have been using them ever since. I love combining Benefit Roller Lash and Urban Decay Perversion. They make my lashes look so thick and long! I love both of these mascaras.
Here are two examples of what my eyelashes look like when I used both of those mascaras :-).
The Beauty Blender has changed the way I apply my makeup. This invention makes it SO much easier to blend foundation and concealer. It saves so much time in the makeup process and I really love it. Make sure if you have it or plan to get it, that you use it DAMP. That’s key with the beauty blender.
I have recently become obsessed with buying palettes. I think they’re great because you get so many different products all in one. They’re great for traveling and just to have! I have fallen in love with a few palettes this past year: the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, Nars Steven Klein Cheek Palette, & the Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette. All of these palettes have quickly become a favorite of mine because of their quality and their beauty.
I never used to fill in my eyebrows until this year. I didn’t realize how important your eyebrows truly are! They can really change a makeup look and complete it! I started using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes in the “Brunette” color. While this palette comes with different products, I really only use the powder. This powder is the perfect color for my brows & it’s SO easy to apply. If you’re a beginner at filling in your brows, I recommend this product!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express for Eyes and Brows
Foundation & Concealer
I LOVE my Makeup Forever HD Foundation! I started using this in the beginning of the year and it has been my go-to ever since. I’ve tried many other foundations, but this one is my favorite! As for concealer, I love Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I use this one for any spots on my face. For under my eyes, I have been obsessed with Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter. This stuff really helps with my dark circles – so if you have dark under eye circles, I recommend this product for you!
Bronzer & Powders
I apply two different finishing powders on my face. I like to use Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for my under eyes. For the rest of my face I like to use Benefit Hello Flawless Powder. Both of these are great powders! My current favorite bronzer is It Cosmetics Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer. It’s the perfect color for me and I love how there’s so much of it. I’ve had it for a year and I’m just finally hitting pan. This stuff is so great!
I have a few favorite brushes. For Bronzer, I always use Eco Tools’ Domed Bronzer Brush. This is the SOFTEST brush ever. I love how big it is because it makes applying bronzer so much easier & quicker. For blush, I use Eco Tools’ Precision Blush Brush. Again, such a soft brush! For highlighter, I use yet another Eco Tools product: their Deluxe Fan Brush. This is great for applying highlighter evenly and lightly. The Eco Tools brushes are SO affordable – I highly recommend checking them out! For powder, I use It Cosmetics’ Unstoppable Powder Brush. Another super soft brush that’s great quality!
Favorite YouTube Channels for Beauty
A 2015 Beauty Favorites post wouldn’t be complete without my favorite YouTube beauty channels! I get most of my inspiration from the people I watch on YouTube, so I thought I’d share a few favorites with you.
Alexandrea Garza has quickly become one of my FAVORITE YouTubers to watch! I love her channel – she has the best makeup looks & I love how she also has some lifestyle videos. FYI – She’s trying to get to 500,000 subscribers by her birthday (Jan 1) so go subscribe – you won’t regret it!!
Jaclyn Hill is another favorite of mine. I know I’ve talked about her before, but I couldn’t not mention her here! She’s hilarious and beautiful and she creates some amazing makeup looks. Check her out!!
Alright you guys! Those are my 2015 Beauty Favorites! Let me know in the comments what some of YOUR favorite beauty items were this past year! I hope you enjoyed this post!
