Another year has come and gone! I tried a lot of new products that I loved this year, so it was hard to narrow it down. I am really loving how far some of the drugstore brands have come! My top 10 are my favourite and are all in my personal makeup bag and in my kit to use in the upcoming year for all my beautiful brides! It was hard to narrow it down but this is my top 10 favourite makeup products of 2017!
1. Makeup Primer
Lancome LA BASE perfecting makeup primer is my favourite find this year! Ive used Hourglass Veil Primer for years and was skeptical whether I would find another primer I would love as much. La Base not only won my heart but a place in my make up kit for all future weddings and events!
This primer is an oil-free makeup base that creates a smooth, radiant, and long-lasting canvas for a polished look, refines skin's texture and diffuses light to visibly reduce imperfections,
creating a satin-soft finish. Creating a smooth canvas for makeup to glide onto, for an airbrushed look that lasts all day!. You can find this gem for $50.00 at Sephora
2. Setting Spray

3. Mac Pro longwear Paint Pot
This has been a personal favourite and in my kit for 5 years running! A long-wearing blendable cream shadow that can be worn alone or with other products. This is my favourite Eye shadow primer. I start all my eyes with these paint pots. Give you build able coverage without looking heavy or Mac cake. I use Painterly on the daily, but also like the colour soft ochre and Camel Coat depending on the skin tone. Painterly seems to be the most versatile tone being a beige nude.

This super-concentrated treatment concealer features a micro-corrector applicator to help instantly erase dark circles and fine lines. Also brightening Umm yes please!!

5. Brow Gel
When you are talking about brows....Benefit knows what they are doing! I have spent years trying to find the perfect product for brows. Benefit comes pretty darn close! Ka Brow is my go to brow solution. A waterproof cream-gel brow color that easily builds natural-looking to dramatic brows. A little goes a long way! the Love that the top of the product is a brow bush, it easily pops back in when finished. The brush works pretty good, but does need to be cleaned every few uses as prodcuct will build up. Easiest brow gel i've used to shape, fill and define your brows! Can purchase for $30.00 at Sephora or pop into your local Shoppers Drug Mart!
6. Liquid Eyeliner
I love the Kat Von D Liner for so many reasons. First of all the entire product line is CRUELTY FREE! The Tattoo Liner is completely free of animal-derived ingredients, and never tested on animals. You can achieve perfection with this high-pigment, waterproof liner that stays put all day for a fade-, melt-, crack-, and run-resistant finish. The superfine and flexible brush tip glides across the lashline for incredibly fluid application, allowing you to create a variety of looks with ease. Unlike traditional felt tip liners, this brush tip will not fray. You can find this top seller at Sephora for $25.00

Up to 12 times the volume and 24 hour wear (although I always suggest removing all makeup before sleeping) Ideal for all-day wear, this mascara doesn’t require touch-ups and doesn’t flake or smudge. Monsieur Big’s brush has a unique shape with soft, wavy fibers to deliver the perfect amount of formula with the very first stroke. The ultra-creamy formula is infused with supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes for bold, buildable volume and length.
