Lipstick On — by Maison Margiela
I’ve never admitted this here… but I am a HUGE YouTube watcher. I fall asleep to makeup videos every night. I have been binge watching everyone’s 2016 favorites videos and it got me thinking about my own. While I don’t have the gumption to start my own channel, I can definitely discuss my favorites here.
2016 was a good year for makeup. I found a lot of new and awesome products! As my schedule filled up, I had less time to reapply makeup, so I found some awesome products that will last forever! I am just going to put these in the order I put them on so I don’t forget anything!
Primer: Didn’t have to think twice about this one. Benefit Porefessional GEL. Make sure you get the gel! I hate that siliconey feeling, so this is perfect!
Concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Brightening. You can’t beat the price!
Foundation: Tart Amazonian Clay 12 hour. This is the best foundation, especially for photos. And it lasts forever!!!
Powder: Laura Mercier mineral powder.
CC Cream: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. I got this for Christmas, and it only took one use for it to make it into my favorites — it’s that good!
Contour: Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette.
Highlight: is there even a question, Becca Champagne Pop
Eye Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I keep trying to go back to Primer Potion, but I just don’t love it as much.
Eye Shadow: This was another one I didn’t have to think twice about. Tom Ford Quad in Nude Dip. I could go the rest of my life with these 4 shades.
Setting Spray: Urban Decay All Nighter
Mascara: Benefit Roller Lash
Lipstick: VELVET TEDDY. I might die for Velvet Teddy, I love it that much.
This is where I really experimented this year — and I’m proud of myself for it. I had the worst skin in high school, I was on Accutane and everything, so I am always super nervous to mix it up in case I break out.
Makeup Remover: Makeup Eraser. Best thing EVER.
Cleanser: Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip. This smells so good, it’s gentle but effective.
Moisturizer: Indie Lee Squalene Facial Oil. I went through two of these last year! I love that it’s all natural and so hydrating!
Mask: I never thought I would abandon my Glamglow, but this charcoal mask from Dermalogica is AMAZING.
Hair & Fragrance
Not much has changed since my Oribe post — I still love the products so much! And now that it’s available at Nordstrom, I love it even more!
Shampoo & Conditioner: Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo & Conditioner.
Dry Shampoo: I’m ride or die Batiste. It’s the best!
Texturizer: There is nothing better than the Oribe Dry Textruzing Spray. Nothing.
Accessory: Invisibobble — these things are the best!
