Can you believe that we’re more than half way through 2016? This year is definitely going far too quickly! 2016 has been a pretty good year for me so far including finishing university, landing a graduate job and visiting Germany and Greece. It’s also been a pretty good year for discovering beauty products and some of my favourites so far this year will be my favourites for years to come. So I thought I’d put together a post showing you all the products that have made my 2016 so far.
Do I need to rave about this foundation any more? Since having this foundation in my life I’ve not tried another foundation and I doubt I will. I absolutely love this foundation and it’s got the best coverage too. If you’re a girl who loves a medium/full coverage foundation this is the dream foundation for you.
Alongside the double wear foundation this concealer is the absolute DREAM. I really love this concealer and I have this in a shade lighter then my foundation, which makes it perfect for under my eyes and using it to highlight my face.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - Look Fantastic
This facemask I feel doesn’t get enough recognition online and in beauty blogging land. This facemask is my favourite overnight treatment when my skin is feeling really dry. I use the Origins maskimizer beforehand and then use this on my face overnight and when I wake up in the morning my skin is so hydrated and moisturised.
This is a recent discovery of mine (you can read the full blog post here) and I am a little bit obsessed with this lipstick. Ever since having this lipstick in my life, I’ve used this everyday. This shade is a comfort matte finish shade and incredibly pigmented. I love how it’s a nude shade but has a hint of pink to it. This is a great lipstick to wear with a simple make-up look.
Barry M Lip Linersin shade 5 & 6 – Superdrug
Barry M lip liners seem to be on pretty much every beauty blog right now and they are dubbed to be dupes for the MAC nude lip liners. I love using the shades 5 & 6 and these are great everyday nude shades. I like using these all over my lip for a lip colour or as a liner with a nude lipstick. These lip liners are an absolute bargain at only £2.99 each too.
Maybelline ColourTattoo in On and On Bronze – Superdrug
I’ve lost count the amount of times I’ve raved about this cream eye shadow on my blog. It’s my all-time favourite eye shadow and it’s such a gorgeous shade of brown. It lasts all day and plus its so easy to apply.
I don’t think I’ve ever liked a mascara as much as I like this one from Urban Decay. This mascara is so great at making my lashes appear thicker, more volumised and looking longer.
Mary Lou Manizer is a product from theBalm that really is worth the hype. I have used this everyday for about 9 months now and despite hitting pan on this a few months ago, it’s still not shattered. I love the pigmentation of this too and it looks great on any skin tone.
I absolutely love theBalm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter but sometimes I want to go for a subtler look. This is the highlighter I go for when I want to create a subtle glow. Its about £10 which is an absolute bargain too.
This HD finishing powder is very underrated in the beauty world. I absolutely love this and when I don’t want to use a setting spray, I reach for this powder. I remember when picking this up that I wanted the banana powder version (but it was sold out) so I picked up this powder in the shade translucent. I love using this and it really does set my make-up well and it doesn’t break the bank either as it’s about £8.
Have you tried out any of these products? What have been your make-up favourites of 2016 so far?
