We’re Rounding Up Our Favorite Beauty Products of 2016

We’ve talked about some amazing products this year from brows to skincare…EVERYTHING under the sun! I started this journey with you during Summer ’16 and I hope my tips and product recommendations helped you in some way or another. I decided to make my last post about my faves of 2016.

End of Year Beauty Faves

The Beginning

We started this journey with brows! Brows are still the talked-about trend of the year! Big brows, sculpted brows, hair brows, you name it! I’ve tried some new products since then, but I’m still in love with my first choice – MAC eyebrow crayon, and their Veluxe brow pencil is amazing! And, the newbie on-the-block is Too Faced brow pencil! I haven’t heard of any other new ones, but what’s next on my list to try is the Wunderbrow! I’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned!

Read all about brows, lips and more in my very first blog post with Blog Xpressions. There is so much information, tips, and product recommendations in this post. Enjoy!

Don’t Knock It Till You Try It!

I’ve had some products that just didn’t work for me, like the Kat Von D Translucent Powder that everyone raved about. They even said the words of it, “being better” than the Laura Mercier Powder….#rude. I’ve yet to find a better powder that the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder! But, I will say, I have fallen in love with MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder! When I wear my foundation and set this on top – you guys, true perfection!

Life is all about trial and error and trying all sorts of makeup products is not exempt! You have to find what works for you and your skin type.

What makeup product(s) have you tried in 2016 that did not meet your standards? We want to know about it.

Care For Your Skin…Skincare

So, as you all know, I’m a skincare junkie. I’ve found some new babies that I will be taking with me into the new year! I touched on it last month, it’s the Tatcha Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer! You guys…like, really! Please get this in your life, you will not be disappointed! Their under-eye serum is amazing as well! I’m in awe with this newbie from Glamglo. It’s called Dreamglo Duo Overnight Transforming Treatment! And it does just that! It’s a two-step process that’ll leave your face feeling pore-less, smoother, radiant and youthful by the next morning! And, it’s for all skin types! You’re welcome! 

Read all about my daily and nightly skincare process. Tons more information, plus products that I use. This post can serve as the “foundation” of your makeup journey. The skincare comes first! Once you master the skincare regimen, now it’s time to slay that face! 

What’s your daily and nightly skincare regimen?

I take great care of my skin, which is why my makeup applies to my face smoothly and flawlessly. Check out my Barbie-inspired look!

Let’s Talk About 2017!

There are going to be a ton of new cosmetic lines and products that are coming out so I’m getting my bank account ready! I’m going to have to replenish very soon of my everyday products and all the new goodies I added to my favorite basket at Sephora (ha!) I can’t wait to go over the new trends with you all, hopefully by February so we can step right into the fabulousness! Remember ladies, makeup isn’t to change the way you look, it’s to enhance your features and maybe cover up a little imperfections here and there. But don’t forget, the key to beautiful makeup is beautiful skin! As mentioned, taking care of skin is important so that includes your daily dose of water and clean eating but also creating a skincare regimen that’ll work just for you. We’re all busy, we all have places to go and things to do, but allow 30 minutes of your time every morning and you’ll see a difference! 

Happy New Year everyone! And always continue to bring out your in inner goddess!

Don’t forget – if you live in the Houston area and need me to slay your face, my contact info is below in my bio. Send me a direct message and I will get back to you.
