It’s time. 2017’s Best In Beauty. The best of the best! From the skincare I’ve been loving all year to some of my favourite makeup picks and a dreamy perfume, it’s time to round up my beauty favourites from the past year.
If I had to pick one makeup item from the past year, it would be the Stila Magnificent Metals. Yes, I’m talking about them again. They’re just the absolute dream and I can’t ever get enough. It’s the makeup item I get asked the most about, and the one thing I wear the most… If I had to pick a shade, it would be Bronzed Bell or Kitten Karma, but they’re honestly all beautiful. Another eye product pick would be the Marc Jacobs cream shadow sticks and the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette… both sensational.
Base wise, I’ve been loving a combination of the Nars Radiance Primer with the Tarte shape tape concealer. The dream team! The primer adds in a lovely dose of light to the skin and the concealer manages to cover any dark circles without creasing. Heavenly. 2017 was the year of me falling in love with some more natural skincare, especially the Pai rosehip oil… such a lovely skin treat. Also have to throw in a mention for Guerlain Mon Guerlain, which is one of the prettiest scents around! So feminine & soft without being too floral.
Of course Glossier had to be on the list… It’s been the year of Glossier! After trying a few pieces in April, and swiftly falling in love with the whole aesthetic, I stocked up when the brand launched in the UK. It’s gorgeous. The milky jelly cleanser has become a bit of a staple in my bathroom for a quick & easy cleanse and I can’t be without at least one of the balm dotcoms on my person at any one time. If I had to pick a few favourites, it would be these and then the cloud paint blushers.
Let me know what 2017’s Best In Beauty standouts are for you!
