Hey guys! I’m so excited to share this post today because I have been testing out so many new beauty products and have been wanting to share them with you guys! After weeks of playing around with these products, I can finally share my top 12 makeup products you should try in 2018. Spring is almost here so keep these products in mind as you change up your makeup for a fresh, new look.

1. Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Foundation
I got to work with Armani Beauty recently, which has been so exciting because I’m a fan of several of their products. You’ve heard me talk numerous times here on my Instagram and Instagram Stories about my obsession with the Luminous Silk Foundation. This time I want to share a new favorite from the brand: the Face Fabric Foundation. When I don’t have shoots and I just want a lighter foundation, I go for this one. It has a light, matte finish, and it’s so easy to apply because of the mousse-like texture that dries into a powder finish. It leaves my skin looking glowy and fresh.
2. Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder
I love glowy skin and have been using the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder to achieve it. After one quick swipe on the high points of my cheek, it brightens up my entire complexion without looking too harsh. If you have never tried using highlighter before, I definitely suggest you try this product. It’s not chalky, too shimmery, or glittery. And gives off just the right amount of glow!
3. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
I know this is not a “makeup product” but, I have been using The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream prior to applying primer when I have a long day of shoots. It hydrates my skin throughout the day and it helps my makeup stay put. Yes, it’s expensive! But trust me, it is worth it! I can count on it to keep my skin soft and moisturized all the time.
4. By Terry Baume de Rose
This lip balm has been my go-to everyday! If you haven’t tried the By Terry Baume de Rose, it’s a definite must try. The results are nothing like I’ve experienced before. My lips are just so plush and soft even throughout NYC’s harsh winter and nonstop traveling. It also leaves the prettiest nude-pink color on the lips.
5. Nars Hot Tin Roof Liquid Blush
I have been obsessed with the Hot Tin Roof Liquid Blush from Nars! It’s goes on so naturally and looks great on my light to medium skin tone. It’s creamy, blendable, and looks dewy but not shiny. And it’s very long lasting.
6. Burt Bees Natural Lipstick – Scarlet Soaked
I wore this color on my lips throughout New York Fashion Week. I love the shade Scarlet Soaked because it’s universally flattering. The lipstick doesn’t dry out my lips and the colors are very pigmented.
7. Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara
It’s so hard to find a mascara that adds volume and length. The Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara is just perfect for that! It makes my lashes look thick and lush without being too clumpy. And the best part is, it doesn’t flake or smear!
8. Nars Soft Matte Concealer
Concealers can be tricky depending on your skin type, but the Nars Soft Matte Concealer doesn’t disappoint! It’s high-coverage yet doesn’t crack or separate. I have tried so many concealers over the years but this one is definitely my favorite one so far. This is great for under the eyes or other parts of your face where you need more coverage.
9. Tom Ford Private Eyeshadow
My favorite color in the Tom Ford Private Eyeshadow line is Loveshade. These shadows are great for everyday use because they’re so pigmented and easy to blend. You can wear a light swatch over your eyes or blend it into the crease. It just looks so elegant and sophisticated on.
10. Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick
One of my newest discoveries is the Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick. You guys know how much I love wearing color on my lips and this one is great! It’s pigmented, matte, AND moisturizing – which is so hard to find in a lipstick.
11. Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer
Finally, I highly recommend trying the Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer. Aside from the amazing smell, it plumps up the skin and extends the wear of your foundation. It’s lightweight and thin, so it sits great under makeup.
12. CHANEL Brow Powder Duo
I’ve repurchased this product 2 times already! This is an all-in-one kit that has everything you need to make your brows look awesome. It has mini tweezers, an angled applicator brush, and a mini brush. What I like the most about this product is that it comes with two shades of powder. I use the darker one for the arch of my brows and the lighter color for the inner part of my brows.
