Yay!!! Time for my favorite post of the year! The 2020 Best of Beauty. I will be showing you all of my top picks for this year; these are my most used products and all-time faves.
Let’s start with nail colors.
Essie Gel Couture is where it’s AT. Love the thick brush; it makes it super easy to apply! The colors I chose are both pink because it’s what I like.
First is Matter of Fiction. A very light, pale pink cream.
Next is a darker pink cream color with a hint of purple. PR Stunt.
Next, some lippies!
2020 was a gloss year for me! These are my two favorites; I love them both!
Marc Jacobs Sugar High, a rosy pink with a subtle shimmer, and NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie, a bright cream pink! Both glosses are non-sticky, last on the lips, and feel nice and moisturizing. Here are swatches:
From l to r: Sugar High and Vanilla Cream Pie
There was one stand out hair product this year that I cannot live without!
This is the Ouai Leave In Conditioner. I spray this in after I wash and condition my hair. It smells AMAZING and leaves my hair so soft. It helps to protect from heat too.
Ok, now for some face makeup.
Of course Bare Minerals Original Foundation is my favorite foundation! It’s just the best, I’ve used it the whole year and there’s still a ton left. It gives the perfect light coverage and doesn’t feel heavy at all.
For concealer, I still love the Shape Tape, but Maybelline Fit Me concealer is my new fave. It’s less thick, not drying, and gives perfect skinlike coverage.
A new blush I started using this year is Bare Minerals Blush in Call My Blush. This is just a matte, natural, rosy colored blush that I love. The staying power on this blush is so good. Here’s a swatch:
Now, some eye makeup.
My most used palette this year was the Too Faced Natural Eye palette. This has the best neutral colors and I like the mix of shimmers and mattes. Here’s a close up.
The colors are pigmented and stay put. I feel like this palette is perfect!
For eyeliner, the Maybelline Tattoo Studio Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Bold Brown. This pencil has the best staying power in any pencil I’ve ever used! Even with makeup remover it doesn’t hardly budge! Love how dark brown it is and how it glides on smoothly.
Lastly, my favorite mascara, the L’Oréal Lash Paradise. This mascara is super black, keeps my lashes curled, and adds a ton of volume!
That’s it for my BEST OF BEAUTY!
