Beauty Favs ~ Top 14 of 2014

Makeup is definitely one of the loves in my life. I have always been a very artistic, creative person and playing with makeup is really an art to me. I just love it and get super excited to mess around with different looks! So I thought it would be fun to list my Top 14 favorite makeup products of 2014. Now I'm not saying these are the absolute best products the world has ever created lol but they are definitely my go-to items that I honestly use on a daily basis. They are some of my absolute favs in every way. For the most part they are all fairly affordable and each of these items have either been repurchased or definitely will be when I run out. So here goes my Top 14:

1) Essie Nail polish in Chinchilly: This is a beautiful silvery purple and every time I wear it I get so many compliments. It matches with everything and lasts a solid week without chipping or peeling. I picked this up in a drug store when I was road tripping with Josh in the Carolinas.

2) Essie Nail polish in Wrapped in Rubies: This has been the perfect holiday color! I purchased it in the beginning of October and wore it week after week throughout the fall and holiday season. I just couldn't take it off. I also grabbed this one at a drug store that was in my area.

3) Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Redwood Forest (mix with Acai Berry Lip balm): I love me some Burt's Bees and this year I fell in love with their Lip Crayons. They are a fabulous texture that doesn't dry out the lip at all. The Redwood Forest is a gorgeous maroon color and was perfect during this past holiday season. The lip balm, I honestly put under all of my lipsticks to give me some extra moisture on my lips. They have a huge Burt's Bees section in Target that has these and so many others of their fantastic products.

4) Urban Decay Lipstick in Lovelight: I purchased this lipstick earlier in the year thinking that it would be my spring and summer color but the legend continues on! It is by far my favorite every day color lipstick. It lives in my purse so it can be with me at all times. It's silky and beautiful and I just love it! I grabbed this while I was out at Ulta.

5) Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder: By far my favorite affordable powder that I use to set my Covergirl foundation every day. It's extremely light and does not get cakey in any way throughout all the seasons in the whole year. It matches up with my skin tone beautifully and I wear it on most days. I like to pick this up at my local Ulta since they always have some good sales.

6) Covergirl's Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation: I just started using this foundation around September of this year but I very quickly fell in love. It blends out on my skin wonderfully and has a truly flawless finish to it, great for every day wear. This is easy to find at Target or any local drug store.

7) Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Prim: I love the Tarte blushes. They are so pigmented and gorgeous on the skin. This particular color Prim has been one of my favorites this year. It's just a very natural color and gives my checks the perfect little flush. You can grab this at an Ulta or Sephora.

8) Maybelline's The Rocket Mascara: I think this product wins for favorite find of 2014! I have always been a Covergirl Mascara girl, but this year I gave the Rocket a shot and I am so happy I did. It always leaves my lashes so thick and incredibly long. Totally worth the hype and you can get it at any local drug store!

9) Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (Liquid Eye Liner): Within the year 2014 I started getting more and more into winged liner. It's not an easy thing to accomplish however the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner makes it 1,000 times easier. The brush is super fine, really easy to use. I picked this up at Sephora.

10) Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black: This eyeliner has always been my favorite! It is so black and pigmented and defines my eyes beautifully. It also never runs under my eyes or on my lid at all, even in the dead of summer. It is a holy grail item for me for sure. This is another product that you can pick up at your local drug store.

11) Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde: I have never been one to do my brows, however after my wedding this year and I saw how wonderful they looked when they were penciled in, I was hooked. So I decided to try and up my brow game this year and I purchased the Brow Wiz. For a rookie eye brow doer, this product has made the transition extremely easy and I love using it. It creates a thick, natural looking brow for my normally thin and sad looking brows. I picked this up from my Sephora.

12) Lorac Eye Shadow Palette in Unzipped: This palette has been my true favorite this year. I wear it on most days and it is a gorgeous neutral palette that has a very creamy texture within each color. It has the perfect combination of shimmer and matte colors that compliment each other so well. Love this! For a high end palette this is a fairly affordable one and you can purchase it at your local Ulta.

13) BareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser: This quickly became my favorite face cleanser when I picked it up last spring. It cleans so incredibly well and gets all of the oil and makeup off of my face after a long day. This is my second purchase of this product and even with trying other brands this is still my favorite. I purchased this straight from BareMinerals.

14) Carol's Daughter Leave-in Conditioner in Black Vanilla: I had been trying to find a good leave-in conditioner for my hair for the better part of the year and heard about this product on a Youtube channel I enjoy. I decided to try it out and I really love it alot. Not only does it smell incredible in my hair but it leaves my hair super shiny without being greasy. It's super easy to brush through my hair once I spray this in and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is trying to find a good leave-in conditioner. I picked this up at Target.

I hope this list gave you some good recommendations as we head into 2015. I love hearing what products other people use and enjoy because it helps me to find and try new items myself. So let me know what products you have enjoyed throughout 2014 and it may help just find a new favorite!
