Some people want to swim with the sharks, however, the beauty aficionado’s bucket list looks a little different! Every one of these products, we think, are the best in beauty 2017 and will take your beauty routine to the next level. This is our list of amazing beauty products to try by 2018, if you ran out of time in 2017!
Luxury meets natural with this latest line from Kérastase. Each product is made with at least 96 percent naturally-derived, responsibly-sourced coconut and argan oils, and without any sulfates, silicones, or parabens. It’s no secret that “natural” doesn’t always equal effective, but this shampoo cleans completely and lathers impressively well (not easy for a sulfate-free formula), while the conditioner smooths, hydrates, and detangles. Finally, a way to do good for yourself and the environment, without having to sacrifice good hair.
Becca continues to nail the luminous/glowy/gorgeous skin game, and this primer is no exception. The purple-hued primer (it goes on sheer) brightens, evens out imperfections, and makes your complexion look, basically, amazing. It has enough of a skin-perfecting effect that you can totally skip makeup, though like any good primer, it also prolongs the wear of any products you layer on top.
Forget bouquets, we’d much rather take our roses in the form of this lip balm. The fresh rose scent enough to use it but this lip saver isn’t just about appearances. As hydrating as a thick balm—though not quite as heavy—it delivers gorgeous, hydrated, plump lips.
The next generation of exfoliator, this not only leaves skin smooth, but also promises to counteract the damaging effects of pollution (and we all know what pollution can cause spots, wrinkles, and all kinds of other complexion concerns.) White charcoal pulls out existing pollutants on your skin, while red algae and tara fruit extract prevent those pesky particles from adhering in the first place.
The brand has done it again, this time creating a miraculous hair-saving spritz full of styling and care benefits in one bottle. Mist on damp hair to instantly detangle even the most gruesome of knots, protect your hair from heat styling, and even add body. Then there are the long-term benefits, like a time-released, lightweight conditioner that keeps your hair looking and feeling silky all day long.
A foundation that knows your skin better than you do? Yes, please. Thanks to special “sensing technology,” this foundation is designed to be in sync with your complexion, adjusting throughout the day as oil levels in your skin change to maintain a consistently gorgeous glow (meaning your makeup won’t perform a disappearing act after your lunch break). The lightweight formula also delivers a heavy-hit of hydration (eight hours-worth, to be exact), with glycerin and hyaluronic acid.
Toss a tube of this pretty-in-pink, super-moisturising lip pomade into your bag for an on-the-go rose-tinted shine.
This is the definition of no-makeup makeup. It’s super lightweight, and it delivers the most flawless, natural glow.
We love that these automatic pencils never need sharpening so they always have just the right point on them to sketch a natural-looking brow. For the most natural look, take a lighter shade softly through the entire brow and brush it out. Then go back in with a deeper shade of brown and draw short streaks through the brow to help create a 3D effect that doesn’t look like a flat, painted-on brow.
Let’s hear it for Tom Ford’s boys! Bigger isn’t always better, at least when it comes to lipstick. These pinky-sized tubes slip into the slimmest of clutches, and the colors are spot-on. There are so many shades to choose from that it’s pretty much impossible to to remain loyal to just one of these gorgeous shades.
Like a shot of espresso to your eyes, this cult-favorite concealer is one of the most sworn-by concealers by every makeup artist in the universe, thanks to its full-coverage, yet still-glowy finish that never cakes or creases.
This is the secret to looking like you have actually had enough sleep. Overnight, it cleans pores, refines their size, smooths the texture of the skin, plumps, and brightens. It’s the quickest fix for dry, tired skin.
