Best Makeup of 2015

Last but not least we have my best makeup of 2015. In case you're new, click over here to see who my favorite YouTubers were and what my favorite Skincare, Haircare and Body Care products were. Now, on to the makeup!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS CONTOUR KIT ($40): This kit hit the market at the height of the beauty world's contouring craze. It has three contour and three highlight shades that you can use to sculpt a flawless face.

BENEFIT ROLLER LASH MASCARA ($24): My first experience with this mascara was during a blind test by Influenster and I immediately fell in love with it even though I didn't know what the brand was. If that's not a testament to it's awesomeness, I don't know what is. It has a curved wand with short rubber bristles that separate and lengthen lashes while curling them. What more can you ask for?

NARS SMUDGEPROOF EYESHADOW BASE ($25): My holy grail of all eyeshadows primer. Yes, it even beats out the famed UD Primer Potion. It stands up to my oily monolids without being overly drying and causing dry patches on the skin around my lids.

CLIO WATERPROOF KILL BLACK BRUSH LINER ($12.99+): This liner from Clio managed to dethrone my beloved Dolly Wink liquid liner toward the end of the year. It's a brush tip so no need to worry about fraying! (I'm looking at you felt tips) The liner glides easily across my lids and the deep black color is totally budge-proof.

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE ($54): Of course the UD Naked Palette had to take one of the top spots because what's there not to love? It has all the shades you could possibly need for a neutral eye look, which is suitable for any occasion and works for all skin tones. If you don't have this palette already, I highly suggest you add it to your collection.

HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING BLUSH SET (Similar One Here): I love this blush trio because all three shades look amazing. A little goes a long way and they blend beautifully while lasting practically all day. Unfortunately, you can't get your hands on this exact set anymore but Hourglass did come out with a new set that also includes three of their most popular highlighters!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS DUO BROW POWDER ($23): This has been my holy grail brow product since I was in high school. Although I've tried plenty of other brow products, I've always come back to this one. It has a light shade and a dark shade to sculpt your perfect brow. I always get compliments on my brows, if you don't believe me check out my Instagram for proof, and I always give credit to this product.

REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN SASSY MAUVE ($4.74+): This drugstore favorite beat out my top of the line lipsticks for this spot. I first discovered this shade by Revlon in college and it's been a staple in my makeup collection ever since. It's a beautiful neutral lip shade that's highly pigmented and is so affordable.

MAC LIPSTICK IN MEDIA ($17): This is my go to lipstick during the Fall because of how vampy the shade is. It looks amazing on all skin tones, even my ghastly pale one. As with all MAC lipsticks, the color is highly pigmented and lasts for a good few hours.

MAC LIPSTICK IN BRAVE ($17): I never thought I'd be able to pull off a nude lip but this shade by MAC has totally changed my mind. I believe I read somewhere that this is one of the shades Kylie Jenner wears but regardless it is an amazing color! It's great for pale to light skin tones.

CLE DE PEAU BEAUTE EXTRA RICH LIPSTICK IN 002 ($40): Who would've thought that a sample from the beauty counter at Barneys would end up becoming my all time favorite lipstick. This is the shade I wear 99% of the time during my photoshoots and I always get compliments on it. Once I run out of these samples, I'll be sure to buy a full size product.


What makeup products are you most forward to trying in 2016?
