2020 Favorites

Welcome back to the blog guys! 2020 was a year for the books for sure! From the presidential election, pandemic, city lockdown and rioting, I'm happy to say peace out to 2020! There were a few good things that came out of 2020, and I wanted to be sure that I took the time to share my 2020 favorites from makeup, skincare, clothes and more! Keep reading down below to read all about the items that I could not live without this past year!

Makeup Favorites

Becca Ultimate Coverage 24hr Foundation

If you know me, then you know I am a foundation, concealer & lipstick junkie. These are the 3 makeup items I tend to buy the most besides lashes and mascara lol. I'm going to start with my favorite foundation. My favorite foundation discovery for 2020 is the Becca Ultimate Coverage 24hr foundation. I had a friend refer me to this product, and when I tell y'all this is the best high-end foundation I have ever tried. It's the best! It provides full coverage without the overwhelming feeling of cake face. I use shade "Olive", and this foundation retails for $44.

Morphe Fluidity Concealer

Next up, let's talk concealer. Honestly, the Morphe Fluidity concealer has been my favorite concealer for the past 2 years. I love this concealer because its a thick-like mousse texture which provides me the coverage that I'm looking for. I also love this concealer because its easy to blend out. And you can't beat the $10 price! I use shade C2.25.

Colourpop So Juicy Lip Gloss

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know a glossy finish has been my favorite preference when it comes to lipstick vs. a matte finish. Colourpop's "So Juicy" lipgloss is my favorite! I carry this everywhere with me, and use it as a topper on most of my lipstick applications. Colourpop does have many different shades, but my favorite shade is "She's Here (nude warm)". This gloss does have a tint to it, but is still transparent. Retails for $8!

V. Luxe Lashes

I truly believe that a look is not complete without a good pair of lashes. V. Luxe lashes have been a new brand discovery for me in 2020. I love many pairs of lashes from this brand, but my favorite style are the "Champagne Pink" pair. I do get these lashes from my local beauty supply store, and they retail for $9. You can also buy these lashes online. If you are not a fan of drama or you have sensitive eyes, you may want to steer clear of these babies lol. Also, my favorite lash glue is the Kiss black lash glue.

Juvia's Place Foundation Stick

Cream contouring has not been a part of my makeup routine in a few years. In 2020, I decided to incorporate cream contouring back into my makeup routine. I can truly say it has definitely transformed my makeup game. My contour is so much more on point. I use the Juvia's Place foundation stick in the shade "Benin". This foundation stick is very creamy, full coverage & easy to blend out. If you're looking for a hydrated, dewy look then you definitely need to invest in this foundation stick for cream contouring. It only retails for $16!

NYX Ultimate Utopia Eyeshadow Palette

I don't buy eyeshadow palettes often, but when I do I make sure they have neutral & bright tones, matte shades & shimmer shades. When I came across this NYX Ultimate Utopia palette, I HAD TO HAVE IT! I mean look at this palette. This palette has almost every shade I would need. I use this palette on myself as well as bridal clients. The shimmer shades in this palette are like no other. They are very creamy & pigmented. If you have not tried this palette, then you need to get your hands on it. It retails for $35.
