Favorite Beauty Buys of 2016

I have definitely bought and tried my fair share of beauty products! It is fun to try something new. Sometimes that pays off and I fall in love with a new product but many times products don't live up to the hype. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite beauty purchases over the past year. These are the things that exceeded my expectations and I will or have purchased them over and over!

 Hoola Bronzer - I didn't think I could wear bronzer until I found this one. It is the one bronzer that everyone can wear. They key to it's accessibility is that it is matte and buildable. The lack of shimmer makes it wearable for every day. The color is the perfect mix of bronze without being even close to orange. It gives my pale skin the little bit of color it needs but would also work for complexions with more color than me. 

Bad Gal Lash - I've tried more mascaras than I can count. I've found a couple more expensive ones that I love but I just can't get myself to pay that price. This mascara is in the middle price range and more than worth every penny. For me, it creates dark thick longer lashes. On my minimal make up days I swipe on a bit of this mascara and my eyes pop!
Rusk Texture Spray - I don't use many hair products besides dry shampoo. This texture spray is the exception. I spray it on before and after curling my hair to give it that messy texture. It's equally great for straight hair as well. The best part is that it doesn't weigh hair down and it's still touchable. 

Enzyme Revitalizing Mask - The more I focus on skin care the more I believe masks are important. I've tried many before but always come back to this one. After 15-20 minutes my skin is firmer, softer and glowing. It's become part of my routine before events are special nights out.

Naked Smoky Palette - The naked palettes are nothing new but I just recently became an owner of one. This was given to me as a Christmas gift and it was an immediate favorite. I don't wear a lot eye shadow on a regular basis but the pretty shades in this palette have tempted me to step out of my comfort zone. Not only are the colors perfect for a dramatic smoky eye but many of them have daytime wearability as well. 

What are some of your favorite 2016 beauty purchases?
