Standout Beauty Must-Haves in 2016

Standout Beauty Must-Haves in 2016

These six products were some of my favorite new releases in 2015 and I just can't let you go into the new year without them. This stop-motion video by Lavinia Jones-Wright and Maris Jones perfectly details how my beauty standouts go from morning to midnight with ease.

I happened upon this pot of color at a SELF beauty sale several years ago. I liked the color--I wear a lot of corals and peaches--so I snatched it up. Little did I know that I'd just found my blush soulmate. It's highly pigmented and stays on for hours

Eye masks are generally a good idea, because they block all trace of light, lending your night's sleep to a deeper one. But the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask is carefully embedded with Cupron's copper oxide technology, derived from the well-known essential mineral. This technology is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin in as little as four weeks with a continuing effect over time. I also have the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase with Copper Oxide.
What did I do before Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum? Blending an advanced treatment, primer and SPF technologies, this miracle worker immediately blurs and protects while combating the signs of aging. I use it on mornings when my foundation needs to last and last. It's also great for lazy weekend days when I need a hint of coverage, but don't want a full face of foundation.

IMMUNOCOLOGIE VITAL IONIC MIST

When I talk to friends about skin care, one of the things I realize again and again is that so many of us are dehydrated. Drinking water and eating the right foods are big part of it, but it's also crucial to be sure that the things we're putting on our skin are keeping them moisturized. Vital Ionic Mist is a hydrating, mineral-rich mist that increases epidermal vitality, enhancing skin cell performance with 13 minerals for iconic balance, and reduces cellular degeneration caused by free radical activity, protecting it against daily environmental stress. 

FOREO LUNA MINI FACIAL CLEANSING BRUSH

Fans of the Clarisonic? The Foreo Luna and Mini Luna combine T-Sonic™ pulsations with a silicone brush to gently remove dead skin cells and makeup residue, and unclog pores of 99.5% of dirt and oil, enhancing the absorption of other skincare products. The brand claims that just 1 minute’s use, twice a day, will visibly improve your complexion in 3 days. My skin looks clearer and healthier, and the vibrations bring circulation to skin. 

 

I discovered this brand at a beauty expo and I got the hard sell. You know, where the people behind the brand stop at nothing to make you a believer. I'm not much for it, but I understand why they made the push. I'm completely reliant on the stuff. It makes my hair feel like silk. Silk, I tell you! It's lightweight, absorbs quickly, and smells great.
