I always love reading about people’s favorite beauty products of the year. That’s why I decided to write a 2017 beauty favorites myself. These are the products I used the most during 2017. Some of them have been my favorites for years and some of them are new discoveries.
Not one but two scents have made it to my top beauty products. YSL Black Opium has been my most used winter perfume the last couple of years. It might have something to do with the fact that this scent has notes of coffee. My coffee addicted self is very pleased with this. Gucci Bamboo is more of a year-round scent that fits with every season.
You can also see a lot of MAC eyeshadows, my favorites are satin taupe, patina and vanilla. I like playing around with different eyeshadow palettes, but when it comes down to everyday make-up MAC eyeshadows outshine all other brands for me.
Most mornings I don’t have a lot of time in the bathroom so I can’t be bothered with a full face of make-up. I do always take the time to apply my face make-up. My favorite foundation has been Chanel Vitalumière Aqua, a light to medium coverage foundation that feels great on the skin. To hide my under eye circles I like to use the YSL touche éclat. A popular concealer that not only hides your fatigue but lights up your under eyes to make you look bright and awake to tackle the day. To spot conceal I use another concealer, the NYX HD concealer. This one matches my skin perfectly to hide any spots.
The last two products are my summer and winter bronzers. When I’m tanned I like to use NARS laguna bronzer to give my face a summery glow. This NARS bronzer is way to dark for me when my skin hasn’t seen the sun for a while. During the colder months I use the MAC blush in Tenderling as my bronzer. A neutral peachy pink that looks nothing like a bronzer in the pan, but on my skin it works perfectly to bronze.
