2017 Beauty Faves

There have been so many amazing new makeup and skincare products in 2017. I love discovering new items and am constantly trying out new things. It was so hard to whittle down to my absolute faves, but here they are, by category.

  • Best Foundation

    Hands down, Clinique’s Even Better Glow wins all my love. It feels weightless, is very buildable and has a fabulous dewy finish. I especially love it during the colder months because I need all the hydration I can get, and it’s not drying at all. Best of all, at $28, it won’t break the bank.

  • Best Primer

    I had been using the Make Up For Ever yellow primer, but a couple months ago someone at Sephora recommended the Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Coconut Face Primer and since then, it’s become my go-to. It’s wonderfully hydrating and refreshing, and creates a smooth surface ideal for applying foundation.

  • Best Corrector

    Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment did wonders for my skin’s redness. I use this after my primer, on days when my skin looks extra red. It helps hydrate, even skin tone and has SPF 30, which is a plus.

  • Best Concealer

    When it comes to full-coverage concealing, Tarte Shape Tape is the standard. It covers everything and is really easy to work with. I like mixing a couple colors for the perfect finish, and use a damp beauty blender to stipple it in.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Eyeliner

    I love this eyeliner. If you want to perfect a wing, this is your must-have tool. It’s super black, waterproof, lasts all day and is easy to use.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Mascara

    You guys know I swear by this mascara. Ciate’s Triple Shot Mascara lengthens, volumizes, defines and curls to help make your eyes look bigger and brighter. I love it hard. Note, only available online.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Highlighter

    2017 is definitely the year of the glow and Becca’s Champagne Pop highlighter is my favorite glow of all. 9 out of 10, it’s this one I go for. This golden, peachy, creamy, high-impact pressed powder is beautiful on every skin tone. Runner up, Opal Flashes Jade.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Drugstore Highlighter

    So impressed with Maybelline’s Master Chrome highlighter. Great pigmentation and such a beautiful metallic hue in Molten Gold. You can now find it in Rose Gold too, and it’s gorggggg! Best of all, it’s about $8 to $10.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Brows

    Anastasia Beverly Hill’s DipBrow (in Medium Brown) is my everyday must-have for perfect brows. I love using the #14 brush to shape and fill in my brows. When it comes to precision, it’s the best.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Eye Shadow Palette

    This was the hardest category for which to pick a fave. I love eye shadows and I own many a palette. I also love different palettes for different reasons, but in the end, I chose the one I grab most often: Anastasia’s Modern Renaissance. I love the colors, which you can use and build for both day and night looks, and the pigmentation and blendability is super fab. Other faves include Urban Decay Naked Heat, Huda Beauty Obsessions in Mauve and Huda Beauty Desert Dusk.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Setting Powder

    Laura Mercier makes the best setting powders both for the undereye area, and all over setting post foundation. These are so great for keeping your concealer and foundation put. I use a press and roll method with my brush to set my makeup.

    SHOP UNDER-EYE SETTING POWDER

    SHOP OVERALL SETTING POWDER

  • Best Lipsticks

    It’s a tie! I can’t decide between Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks (particularly the velvets and glosses) and all things Jouer. When it comes to lip products, I want fabulous colors and a long-lasting formula… one that doesn’t dry my lips. I’m particularly obsessed with both Jouer and Kylie metallic options. Jouer’s lip toppers are bomb too, so definitely pick a couple of those up as you’re loading up your cart.

    SHOP JOUER | SHOP KYLIE

  • Best Setting Spray

    If you want your makeup to last from morning to night, a handful of spritzes of Urban Decay’s All Nighter does the trick… every time. Staying power, delivered.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Brushes

    I love my Morphe brushes oh-so much!!! Inexpensive and such great quality, ideal for both powder and liquid products. Next week I’ll be sharing my faves from their vast collection.

    SHOP THEM

  • Best Serum

    I’m a total serum junkie and I’ve been using this one for years… it’s still my fave. When I feel like my skin is looking a little dull, I used this one at night and my skins looks radiant the next morning. I swear by it.

    SHOP IT

  • Best Facial Mask

    From the first time I tried this mask, I loved it. This creamy anti-aging mask is packed with two types of Vitamin C and AHAs from seven fruits to help with dullness, uneven texture, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Pricey, but worth the cost.

    SHOP IT

     

  • Best Moisturizer

    I’ve always taken care of my skin, albeit with varying intensity, but never made a foray into high-end skincare. As many of you know, I decided to give some of these expensive moisturizers a go, swearing I’d come back to you and say it’s all baloney. I’m totally eating my words because after just one use of the famed La Mer cream, I was in awe. My skin has never felt so hydrated and wonderful. After continued use, my skin looks brighter and more even. While I can’t made a grand statement on all high-end creams, this one is truly a miracle in a jar.
