Another year is coming to its end and I couldn’t be more excited to start the new one. The 2017 was very important to me, I’ve finally got the courage to leave everything that was stopping me behind, take some risks and become a #bossbabe 🙂 I am very grateful that I got a chance to work on my dreams and build a strong foundation to rock the upcoming year to the core. I have so many plans and new ideas to share with you in 2018, but before we move on, let’s take a look back into 2017 and some of the best beauty products that made a high standard for the next stage!
As you all know, I am a huge makeup lover. And I am happy that 2017 made the makeup game even stronger with all the amazing beauty products there are available now. New brands are popping out every day, the good old ones are just getting better and better, it’s a true makeup paradise! I know it can be a bit overwhelming to choose the right thing for you since there are so many products out there, but that’s why we have reviews to help us make the best decision. But most importantly, not everyone has the same taste, nor will every beauty product work the same on different skin types, so using reviews while relying on your own intuition is the best combination possible.
Here I present you some of my favorite beauty products in 2017, and trust me when I say it was not easy choosing the few best ones for this post, but otherwise it would turn into a never ending story 🙂
Smashbox photo finish foundation primer is the highest ranked primer out there for a reason and It became my favorite during this year. I’ve only had it for a few months, but from the very first use I’ve fallen in love.
This transparent oil-free primer gel smooths the skin, minimizes the pores and makes any imperfections go away. Plus it makes your foundation to blend more easily. You don’t need photoshoop if you have this 😀
Also, it keeps the makeup in place for hours and hours and the best thing of all is that it works for almost every skin type!
Without a shadow of a doubt, Dior Diorskin Forever is my favorite foundation and honestly I have no idea how I lived without it for so long. I got it during my stay in Munich, Germany and I’ve been using it every day since then.
It’s long lasting, medium coverage, blends very easily, it’s light weighted and smells amazing. It’s a bit expensive but totally worth it 🙂
It is formulated to give a perfect, flawless complexion. It helps minimize the appearance of pores, control shine, and blur imperfections for a luminous matte finish that lasts for up to 16 hours.
Colorpop No Filter concealer is for me one of the best out there. It’s light weighed, creamy, formulated with soft blurring pigments and it gives a perfect, crease-proof, matte finish. And the best thing is – It’s only 6$ in full price 😀 Amazing, right?
The range of shades is extraordinary, everyone can find the right color for themselves. Full coverage will help in hiding those dark circles without a trouble and you’ll not have to worry creasing the entire day!
I recommend using it with a beauty blender to get the best results and most natural look 🙂
Chanel loose power is also one of my great beauty discoveries this year. It is a part of Vitalumiere line and it’s called Vitalumiere Loose Powder Foundation. Also, comes with Mini Kabuki Brush that is the softest thing ever 🙂
It is a new generation of foundation that looks like loose powder but gives the result of a fluid foundation without a sign of cakeness and thickness with an excellent coverage.
For all those who need that extra something 😀
Hoola Bronzer has been my favorite since forever. I had to include it here, because even though I’ve started using it some time ago, still it is my favorite even in 2017 and I guess for many years to come.
No need to say a lot about it, we all know and love this bronzer for endless reasons, but my biggest one is that perfect shade that is not too orange nor too gray, it’s just right.
I can use it both for contouring and bronzing and it has never disappointed me.
Colorpop Super Shock shadows are my absolute favorite in 2017.
Pigmented, easy to blend with most unbelievable texture and with minimum or no fallout at all. I’ve made an entire blog post about them, feel free to check it out HERE if you want to know more 🙂
And last, but not least, the lashes!
Esquido lashes are my favorite ones! Even though I got them recently, from the first look at them I went crazy. Not only that they are amazingly packaged, but they are handcrafted, incredibly soft and easy to apply. One of the finest high quality lashes on the market! And they stay put, no need to check if you lost one of them every two seconds, thanks to the invisible Companion glue that is super easy to use:)
Also one of the things I love about their website is the Interactive lash guide for all of you who are not sure which pair to choose that would fit your eye shape the best. So cool, right? 🙂
I’ve got two pairs:
LASHMOPOLITAN – For the perfect cat eye. They are so glamorous and flirty and they give an amazing winged out effect that no one can resist 🙂
VIOLA LASH – Drama eyes! With these lashes, that are so big, voluminous and fluffy, you’ll not go unnoticed for sure. The length expends gradually towards the end, but they amaze in volume throughout the entire lash line.
Merry Christmas guys!
I hope you enjoyed the post and maybe even got some last minute Christmas gift ideas 🙂
