2018 has been a year filled with trying out new products and finding my likes and dislikes in beauty trends. Overall, Ive found many brands that I have become loyal to and will keep using for many years to come. Here are a list of my favorite beauty brands and trends of this year, hopefully you guys find some new brands to try from these picks!
I absolutely love Glossier, their brand, aesthetic, products and packaging are absolutely amazing, I absolutely love every product I have ever tried from Glossier. First of all, how could anyone not be impressed by Glossier’s aesthetic, it is so incredibly cute and cohesive it makes you want to, quite literally, buy everything. Now for the products; Glossier’s Lash Slick Mascara, Lid Star eye pigments, lip gloss, fragrance and SPF are absolutely amazing. Glossier is more for those who want a makeup look thats light and brings out ones natural glow, and thats exactly what their products do. Their lash slick mascara adds fibers to your lashes and makes them look super long, their Lid Star pigments are super sparkly and easy to use which I appreciate and the lip gloss is long lasting and makes my lips look super moisturized and more importantly, they all last for hours. The SPF is very light and invisible making it comfortable to wear with moisturizer. Glossier You is Glossier’s signature fragrance that comes in both a solid and a spray, I have the solid and it smells amazing, the scent lasts all day and it is my perfect everyday signature fragrance.
I absolutely love Briogeo’s Apple and Matcha Shampoo and Conditioner and their Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioner. Every time I use Briogeo products my curls feel super soft and look extremely healthy, not to mention their products smell heavenly. There are no sulfates, parabens, silicone or artificial dyes that dry out and damage hair, which is a major plus for me, I take pride in caring for my curls and do everything in my power to make sure my hair is healthy and damage free. Briogeo carries products that work for every hair type and their packaging is super cute! Which is why Briogeo has been one of my favorite beauty brands of 2018 that I will definitely be using in the future.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara
Im a huge proponent for eye makeup, I love just doing mascara and nothing else to make my eyes pop, I have several favorite mascaras but this one I absolutely adore, it thickens, darkens and lengthens lashes without clumping. This mascara makes my lashes super long and defined giving me a great look without any heavy makeup buildup.
First Aid Beauty
Ive been using First Aid Beauty’s moisturizer and it is one of the best moisturizers I have used. While the moisturizer is rich snd thick, it is still very light and can be used in any season. In addition, when I use this moisturizer it makes my skin look and feel clearer and more hydrated. For Christmas I got a set of First Aid Beauty products which I am super excited to use, I love everything in their line and highly recommend it.
