2017 Beauty Favourites

It has been quite hard to pick only a few items to feature in my favourite beauty products for 2017 as I loved so many. 

2017 has been the first year to expand and try new brands including Laura Mercier, NYX, Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury to name a few, but you will never take this girl from drugstore holy grails. 

The main product I have been obsessed with is my L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation in shade12 Natural Rose. This high coverage matte foundation is insane, it beats my Nars, Mac and Charlotte Tilbury hands down and bonus is that it is quarter of the price. I do find this foundation is very similar to the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation, however it is a much more fuller coverage. 

Sticking to base products and my next favourite of 2017 has to be the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfect Powder. This stunning powder is fab to add a tiny bit of glow to your skin without going OTT, it sets your foundation and concealer well. I've not normally spent this amount of money on a powder, I feel a splurge at such level on just a powder is a little much I'd rather pay more on eye shadows or blush. 

 Mascara: L'Oreal Paradise Extatic, Foundation: L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover, Powder: Laura Mercier Candleglow Powder, Urban Decay Eye Shadow Palettes: Naked 2, Naked Heat

For blusher, I have to hand it to the Kardashian/ Jenner clan for their beauty empires! For me, the Kyle Jenner pressed blush powder in 'Barely Legal' is beaut; its the perfect peachy pink for my pale skin tone. I love how it blends so well on natural or tanned skin to give that hint of colour on the apples of your cheeks after contouring. Sometimes a powder can look a little drab especially if placed over a powder but the pay off is incredible and natural. 

Mascara, well do I really need to say anything? You all know exactly what is coming especially if you watch any of my videos. Yes, the L'Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara, it is da bomb! It elongates and thickens the lashes perfectly after a couple of coats, what more does a girl need? Usually I would need to use two mascaras as my lashes are pretty disappointing; short and thin to say the least. 

For eyeshadows, I cannot particularly pin point just one palette as the Urban Decay eye shadow palettes are insane! For instance, the packaging is simply stunning, so much thought and hard work has gone into them. Then the product itself, the colour pay off is incredible, the shades are super rich and bold which you can create a number of different looks with. If you don't own any of these palettes then I would certainly recommend them. 

I'd love to hear the beauty products you have been loving at them moment!
