Hello!

Today, I'm going back to one of my favourite subjects, makeup! I tried quite a few makeup products in 2017 and these five are the top ones I found actually work (for me, at least). Not all of them are necessarily new products that came out in 2017, that is just when I first bought and tried them. And absolutely loved them!

1. Primer

Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector

I am obsessed with primers so, of course, I was in the hunt for new ones. And I found one. This primer is amazing for oily skin, it smooths out my texture, creates a great canvas for my foundation. It's everything. Just make sure you press it in, not rub it all over. I know it's a tad expensive, but, in its defense, it's a whole 40 ml and you only need a small amount, so it will last you quite a few months.

2. Foundation

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort-Matte Foundation

By far the greatest foundation I have ever tried. It looks so natural with a matte but also kinda glowy finish, it holds up for hours without moving or breaking and it gets even better as the hours pass, unbelievable, I know. It covers my redness and is wearable everyday because of the medium coverage it gives. Truly a comfort matte foundation and well worth the money for the huge tube of 48 ml.

3. Powder

Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Loose Powder

In most cases, oily skin equates an obsession with powders, especially loose setting ones. Well, that's me and after the Laura Mercier one, I was trying to find something that would come even remotely close to its magic powers and let me tell you, I found it. The Kat Von D powder not only did that, but also pretty much proved I am right to love and never exclude loose translucent setting powders from my makeup routine.

4. Highlighter

Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighter Powder

Let's be real here, who wasn't obsessed with highlighters in 2017? I will admit, though, I was a bit hesitant at first, because I didn't wanna be any more shiny than mother nature already made me. Well, after trying the Wet n Wild highlighter I pretty much beamed every time I went out and I loved it and now I'm obsessed with this little square of gold for life.

5. Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

Once again, another face product, but I'm not sorry, because my goal in life is to have perfect skin and until that becomes a reality, makeup has to help me a bit hehe. So, I recently fell in love with the Urban Decay setting spray and yes, I know everyone has been raving about it for ages, but, well, although late, I'm here now to totally agree. It holds everything in place so well, for so long, it has saved my life so very much. No words, just thank you.

That's all the makeup products that impressed me and became favourites in 2017. I know they are pricey, but I see them as good investments, as they last me a long time and do an amazing job.
