Starting with Face Prep. I want to look very luminous and glowy for summer, so I’m excited to try these liquid illuminators out.
1. NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam ($11/Cdn)

2. Mac Strobe Cream ($10/Cdn)

3. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice ($11/Cdn)

4. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($88/Cdn) – This is a pricey one, I will probably just pick up a sample or travel size.

5. Nivea Mens Sensitive Skin After Shave Balm ($10/Cdn) – Nikkie Tutorials has made this a fav in the beauty community as a primer as it contains glycerin which makes your makeup stick.

6. Mac Studio Moisture Fix+ ($33/Cdn) – This a cult favourite and I need to try it!

Moving on with Skin Products. 

7. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation ($47/Cdn) – I received a sample of this and LOVED it. Dying to purchase a full bottle. Soon!

11. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel ($29/Cdn)

12. NYX Dark Circle Concealer ($8/Cdn) – I don’t have much darkness to hide, but I want to try out colour correcting and concealing.

13. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Power ($47/Cdn) – This product is all over the beauty community and I just need to try it out too! I also really want to learn to bake.

14. NYX HD Concealer ($8/Cdn)

15. NYX HD Concealer in Green ($8/Cdn) – To try colour correcting blemishes!

16. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream ($42/Cdn) – I want to really nail down my nighttime skin care routine this year.

17. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque ($40/Cdn)

On to the Eyes!

18. Tarte In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($54/Cdn) – I have been DYING to try this palette since it came out. The colours are AMAZING.

19. Mac Pigment in Melon ($22/Cdn)

20. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowgirl ($22/Cdn)

21. NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Sapphire ($10/Cdn) – When I first saw these I thought they were a little tacky, but I’ve seen tutorials online and now I’m interested in trying!

22. NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Halo ($10/Cdn)

Lastly Lips!

23. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks ($18/US) – The makeup community is raving about these! Pictured above is Anna Nicole, a orangey-red, but I could honestly pick up any one of these fun, bright colours!

24. Buxom Full-On Lip Creams ($24/Cdn) – I also keep seeing these online, they give off a really nice gloss. I am interested in Peach Daiquiri, Bellini, Dolly, White Russian or Hot Toddy.

25. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dolce ($26/Cdn) – I already have one of these in Party Pink, the colour is so stunning, but it’s a weekend lipstick, so I’m looking for an everyday colour.

26. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($24/Cdn) – I keep seeing these online as well, there is so many great colours, but I think I’d be interested in Berlin, Beloved, Noble or Lovesick.

That wraps up my 26 beauty products I want to try! Let’s see how glam I can get this year. What beauty products do you recommend for 2016? Let me know in the comments!

I’m just winging it. My life, my eyeliner, everything!
