Let's start with the face.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles in Fair
Rimmel London stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Transparent
Keeping with the drugstore trend, my ride-or-die powder is this Rimmel powder. Like concealers, I tried out some more high end powders but none of them compared to this one. It is a very light-weight powder that keeps me matte all day long. Plus it's only a couple of dollars so whenever I run out if it, I can just run to Target and pick up another one.
Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Soft &Gentle
This was the year of highlighters for makeup brands. Hourglass started the trend with their Ambient Lighting Powders and then it seemed like every company was coming out with highlighters! I picked up this one while I was at Mac particularly because it was a high end highlighter that was cheaper than most. (Of all things, I just find it really hard to spend a lot of money on highlighter.) I've used it almost every single day I've warn makeup since I picked this product up. It is a great golden highlighter that isn't too dark for my skin tone since it has a little bit of cool tone shimmer in it as well. I just love the look of it on my skin and can't imagine my life without it.
Now onto eyes!
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Brown
Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Pallet
L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara
Many companies came out with so many mascaras this year, but my favorite is actually an older one from L'Oreal. This mascara is incredibly lengthening, which I love. A lot of people like to focus on volume and such, but I really prefer a mascara that will give me more length and separation. This one does everything I want. It has a super thin brush so it's perfect for getting really close to your lash line. Plus, you don't have to worry about getting mascara all over the place when you apply it to your bottom lashes.
Lastly, here are my lip loves!
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Strawberry Shortcake
This line of lipsticks by Revlon came out a few years ago, but I finally decided to try it out in the spring. I am in love with the texture of these lipsticks. They are super creamy and don't dry out the lips. I am in love with this color in particular because it is just the perfect nude pink. I have worn it all year long!
Mac Satin Lipstick in Media
This is one of my first Mac lipsticks ever, and I have to say I was not disappointed. I never felt I could pull off dark colors for the fall in winter time, but I decided to take my chances and pick this up. I do not regret that decision what-so-ever! This was one of my favorite fall and winter lip colors. It is a perfectly purple color that is a good mix between maroon and purple. It was just the perfect dark color for me, and I'm so happy I decided to pick it up this year!
That concludes my makeup loves for 2015! I hope this gave you some ideas if you are looking for some new make (let's be real...I'm always looking for new make). Come back later this week to find out what else I have loved for the year!
Happy New Year!
