2016 was the year I & everyone around me was literally OBSESSED with make-up & also the year which made me realize that half of your make-up is your skin so if you need to get your make-up game on point you need to get your skin on point first.
Putting the obvious aside I’ll start with my ABSOLUTE favorite products of the year;
– Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation.
I had to get my hands on this one as all the make-up gurus were raving about it & I must tell you guys that it’s worth every penny. I believe we’ve all moved from the full coverage heavy looks to the more natural “no make-up looks” so if you’re looking for a light flawless looking coverage then this ml bottle is all you’re looking for.
– Shade adjustment drops
Although the strong scent might be a turn off for some people it doesn’t seem to bother me, this little dropper is like my little secret to luminous flawless looking skin. You can either use it as a highlighter or add it in your base to give it a little liquidy/luminous touch & also to lighten it’s shade.
– StageLine liquid lipsticks
I was introduced to the brand Stageline on Sobias masterclass & I never knew it’ll turn out to be so GOOD. From the Tv sticks, to the mascaras , to the liquid lipsticks everything is worth more than the price, if I be honest. They’re long-lasting, not drying & pretty vibrant but its a bummer how they only have a few colors so far.
– Hoola bronzer
Till the start of 2016 I was all about the cream contour but as time went by I realized that 1 – my face doesn’t need that much contouring 2 – I don’t have so much time to cream contour my face on a daily biases & just then I was introduced to the holla bronzer. It’s SO pigmented & its little brush is the perfect shape for contouring, one swap & I’m good to go with more sculpted cheeks & a contoured nose.
– Mac Prep & Prime Fix
I haven’t really used the spray as a primer yet but I’ve been using it as a setting spray and it has clearly been doing its job as one, it holds the makeup in place for hours and literally makes it melt into your skin hence giving you a flawless looking skin.
– Stainiac Lip & Cheek stain
Lip & Cheek stains are a secret ingredient to my makeup routine, they look absolutely natural and stay all day long. I use the Stainiac lip & Cheek stain from the balm cosmetics, i don’t personally like it on the lips but its perfect for the cheeks and I don’t think I’ve used powdered blush ever since I’ve got my hands on this.
– Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
An oil free concealer that covers all types of blemishes and doesn’t look cake-y or bulge up. The only drawback is that they only have a limited amount of shades available.
– Sexy Mama Translucent Powder
Sexy mama does exactly what its supposed to do; powder your face without a trace. Doesn’t cake up & leaves a matte finish.
– Inglot Gel Eyeliner
Darkest & smoothest liner to work with, glides on your eyelids & doesn’t smudge.
