Favorite Beauty Finds of 2017

Happy Friday everyone!!  Today I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty finds of 2017.  The older I get, the more I am willing to invest in great items that make me feel beautiful!!  I used to never really care or put too much effort into my makeup and skin routine, but I am realizing how investing in some key products can not only make them last longer, but make you feel better too.  

Linking up for some Friday Favorites today to share these with you all!

#1 - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

I started using this as a base over my normal moisturizer.  I love that it helps prime my skin for more makeup and evens out my skin tone.  The added plus of having more SPF is even better.  I like to use the oil free version, my skin doesn't tend to have an oily base, but this is the one that I enjoy.  The shade I use is Nude #fairskin.  Sometimes I'll just apply this with some mascara and go out the door and feel put together. 

#2 - Becca Under Eye Brightener Corrector

I love, love, love this stuff!! It has a sheer tint to it that reflects the light and makes those bags under your eyes disappear!  I do mix it with my normal MAC concealer that I've been using for years, but this is definitely one of my favorite finds last year.  

#3 - Nars Blush - Orgasm

I know that this one is a beauty blogger favorite, but this year it became one of mine too!  I was able to get it as a free sample for one of my Sephora purchases this year, and I love the peachy-pink sheer shimmer that it gives me.  I'm definitely going to re-purchase it when the sample runs out. 

#4 - Laura Gellar Baked Blush-N-Brighten

I got this blush during Christmas sales from Ulta and love it!  I was able to purchase it half off, so I figured I'd give it a try.  Between this one and the Nars, I am able to switch my blush looks depending on how I'm feeling that day.  The difference between the two is that this one has more of a built-in highlighter in it, where the Nars is more of a solid blush.  Does that make sense? 

#5 - Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair

My Dermatologist recommended this as an over the counter wrinkle repair cream.  I've been using it almost a year, and seen differences in my skin.  It's a great affordable item, and smells good.  I use it every other day, because of the Retinol A in it, but have enjoyed adding it into my nighttime routine.  

#6 - Clear Acrylic Makeup Organizer

This has to be one of my favorite finds of last year.  I had been looking at the Cosmo Cubes for a while, but not wanting to spend that much money.  I found this at Container Store, and had a coupon and purchased it on sale.  My makeup was under my counter and in a container where I couldn't see what I have.  Now I can set it on my bathroom counter, it looks cute, and makes it so much easier to see where my stuff is.  Love this!!

I recently became a Sephora VIB member, which means I spend too much money there!! What other products should I try there? Anything that you love that you can't live wtihout?

Happy Weekend Friends!!
