Beauty Favorites of 2013

2013 Introduced me to so many make up and trends that were amazing. From nail polishes to the many BB creams that came out. I wanted to share with you some of my favorites.

My favorite trend for nail polishes was the mint color and so many brands came out with beautiful ones, from Essie to Wet N Wild. I used them from the spring all the way to the end of summer. Of course, couldn’t live out the classic red that I love in any season.

For the fall and winter, I loved the golds and the reds. I have been using this colors from September until now.  The Sally Hensen  Insta-Dry was my favorite top coat this year. It really helped cut down the drying time.

Baby lips, Vaseline Lip Therapy and Lip Medex were my favorite lip balms. The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks were an amazing 2013 discovery for me.

The Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion is amazing and I love it  but my favorite eye shadow primer  that I used this year  is the ELF eye shadow primer for only $1.00. It does the same job as the Urban Decay. It helps with the pigmentation of the eye shadows, it helps them stay on your lids without creasing all day. I love it. For the face, there is nothing better than the Benefit Porefessional. It truly helps minimize my pores and helps with  my foundation to stay all day long without making my skin feel greasy.

BB Creams were a huge trend in 2013.  My favorite ones were the Rimmel BB Cream and the ELF BB Cream.

Revlon and Covergirl  produced my favorite foundations. They are both amazing for oily skin, full coverage and they stay  all day long. The Maybelline Stick Fit Me foundation is amazing for those days when you are running late and you want to do your make up as quickly as possible.

It was really hard for me to pick blushes. There were so many that I loved this year. I narrowed it down to four. Nyx, Physicians Formula, Elf and Jordana. They are super affordable and have  really pigmented beautiful colors.

My Favorite pencil eyeliner is the black Rimmel Scandaleyes in waterproof. It is amazing, it stays on all day! My favorite Gel eyeliner is the Bobbi Brown in black and my favorite liquid eyeliner is the black Wet N Wild Liner. For mascara, I began my year with the amazing long time love Maybelline Great Lash in very black, then I discovered the Jordana Best Lash Extreme  and the Loreal Voluminous Mascara. Beautiful Products.

As far as eyelashes, I have to use eyelashes every day because I do not have any. So it became a little expensive for me to buy the Ardell lashes which I think are amazing. Thankfully I discovered the ELF eyelashes this year. They are only a dollar and really look natural on they eyes. Thank you ELF. My favorite eyelash glue of all time is the Duo waterproof glue. It is just the best.
