As we continue our wrap-up of the best of beauty in 2010, we wanted to share the products we think made our faces look flawless and brighter this past year. These are tried and true, and will stick with us as we enter 2011.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – This just may be my favorite concealer ever. I love the consistency, the wear, the fact that it doesn’t crease (at all) and that it covers any imperfection on my face. I also love the price. I’ve been stockpiling a few shades so I always have a good color match.
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl – Highlighter junkies are we, and Girl Meets Pearl was a welcome surprise. It’s a rosy gold that melts into the skin in a very natural way. While it’s a rock star any way you use it, Carla really liked to wear this under a dusting of powder for that lit-from-within glow.
Bobbi Brown Nectar Shimmer Brick – We really enjoyed the coral trend this spring, and Bobbi’s Nectar Shimmer Brick stands out in a big way. It’s the perfect coral with a touch of pink. It’s more than just a highlighter, but a beautiful shimmering blush.
MAC Joie de Vivre Cremeblend Blush – More on the aforementioned coral trend. I liked all of the creme blushes in MAC’s Lillyland collection, but Joie de Vivre delivered the perfect pinky-coral cheek. In fact, Joie de Vivre and Bobbi’s Nectar Shimmer Brick were perfect mates all spring for me. Love this blush. Hope we see more Cremeblends in 2011, MAC.
Becca Mineral Powder Foundation – Carla saw this at the Makeup Show in May and couldn’t pass it up. Becca’s known for their foundation and this pressed mineral foundation is compact and super portable plus it leaves skin looking like actual skin with medium coverage. She loves that it makes her skin glow without the shimmer.
Tarte Matte Waterproof Park Ave Princess Bronzer – Tarte’s classic Park Ave Princess bronzer got even better with the release of the Matte version this summer. I use this pretty much every day, and have also used this on many other people. It’s the perfect bronzer to contour the skin with, and Tarte certainly knows how to package a product.
