My Favorite Beauty Products of 2019

Hello dolls and Happy New Year!! Welcome to a new year and a new decade! I’m super excited for today’s post because I’m going to be sharing with you all of my FAVORITE products from 2019. These are products I have been reaching for the most during the year and have been repeat purchases. Because let’s be honest, if you’re willing to spend money on a product AGAIN it must be good! I haven’t done the best job throughout the year keeping you updated on my favs but I’ll do better, pinky promise. I’ll be doing more product reviews and tutorials on my YouTube channel for sure this year. Be sure to head there and subscribe so you don’t miss a download. This week I uploaded a ‘Soft Glam’ look using these products. So if you want to see these products in action head head to my channel! 

So let’s start in the order in which I apply these products to my face 

Starting with skin, I have been loving the Sephora Vitamin C+E Serum drops. They add a boost of hydration to my skin and helps my makeup stay up all day due to the stickiness of the formula. It’s not a bad sticky no worries just more of a tackiness that works well with my primer and foundation. I have been having super dry skin as of late so this stuff has been amazing. It’s not a moisturizer, I add that separately, but it def is a hydrator for the skin. 

Primer: Milk Hydro Primer: This primer is been my go to all year and I must say I love it. It does a great job of keeping my makeup flawless all day long. I mean my makeup looks so gorgeous all day long. My skin has been more on the dry side lately so I try to inject moisture in my routine where I can without making me oily. This does a great job of doing just that. 

Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Chai. Jackie went OFF when she created this shade, period. This formula leaves me looking flawless with the perfect healthy glow. I have tried a LOT of foundations this year but this one is number 1.

Concealer: Born This Way Concealer in Butterscotch is the concealer I use when I want to look natural and flawless. It does not cake or crease badly. I have natural creases under my eyes so creasing is a part of life for me but this one keeps my underage area just flawless. 

Setting Powder: Laura Mercier in Translucent is a tried and true favorite. I have yet to find any powder that works as well. No other powder gives me such a smooth finish or 

Bronzer: Queen Collection bronzer in Ebony Bronze is an oldie but goodie. I have tried a few other bronzers this year but I keep coming back to this one. It is my perfect shade that doesn't make me look muddy or have too much shimmer. 

Eyes: Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions palette has been my travel palette of choice. This thing goes with me EVERYWHERE. I can create natural looks or dramatic looks with this little work horse of a palette. I'm hitting pan on 2 shades that's how you know it's real. THAT NEVER HAPPENS TO ME. Similar palette here I want to try next. 

Liner: L'Oreal Voluminous Noir liquid liner in black is another go-to of mine for some time now. To be honest, I will be replacing this longtime fav this year. I find it is amazing when it's fresh but the felt tip dries out a bit faster than I like. I have my eye on the hourglass liner. It's pricey but I hear great things so I will let you know. 

Mascara: Rimmel Accelerator mascara has been a FAV of mine for years now. To be honest it worked for me and I didn't spend too much time venturing out to find a replacement. I will be trying some new mascaras this year just for variety. Until then, trust me when I say this formula doesn't flake or run and keeps my lashes curled with no issues. 

Lashes: Blinking Beaute in Genius. These lashes are my ’special occasion’ lashes but they quickly became my go-to’s for any and all occasions. I LOVE these lashes you hear me. They are a nice and fluffy half lash. The are super flirty and elongate my eye without hiding my eyeshadow. It’s really a go-to for me and I can’t stop using them oh and did I mention I’ve had them over a year and they are still holding up like a champ.
