Beauty Faves of 2016

Hello beauties,

Welcome to 2017! Crazy!!! A couple of weeks ago, I brought you my Best Beauty Finds of 2016, great beauty discoveries but not necessarily faves, click here to check them out. Now let’s talk about who made the cut!


Beauty Blender

Applying my foundation with a Beauty Blender is a must! Its vary rare that I use a brush to apply my foundation, however some foundations do work better when applied with a brush. For me the Beauty Blender is easy and creates the most flawless base ever! Click here for a comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

MAC Eye Kohl- Teddy

I’ve been so time poor in the morning that I haven’t had time to wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. My go to when I’m running late is to apply some Teddy eyeliner to my top lash liner and waterline for some added definition.

Hylamide Photography Foundation*

This is a goldy toned liquid highlighter, but can be used mixed in with foundation or primer. Personally, I like it as a liquid highlighter as a base to my powder highlighter.

The Balm Betty Lou Manizer

You know how much I love this! Its creates the most beautiful bronzey glow!

Below, I’m wearing Hylamide Photography Foundation and The Balm Mary Lou Manizer on top. For a bronze glow, I’m also wearing The Balm Betty Lou Manizer.


Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser*  

You know my love for Glycolic acid, so it’s fair to say this was easily going to be a fave! I love that it was effective without being abrasive or drying. Bae also really loved using this cleanser.

Wildcrafted Organics*

This has to be one of the most effective organic skincare ranges I’ve ever tried. I loved all products from the range. Click here for a full review.


Antipodes Skin Brightening Serum*

I’ve harped on about this serum all year, you know I love it. Click here for a review.

Go To Skincare Face Hero

Likewise you know my love for this product. Face Hero with the Antipodes Serum is a match made in heaven! Face Hero would definitely be my fave from the Go To Skincare range. Click here for a review of Face Hero.

 As you can see there’s been a mixture of old and new favourites. What have you been loving in 2016?
