Favorite Purchases of 2016 - Honestly Hannah

Favorite Purchases of 2016

I can't believe 2016 is already coming to an end! I really do believe that it's been an amazing year, but I'm also excited to see what 2017 has to bring. This year, I've stepped into the blogging world, and I couldn't be more thankful! Blogging has brought so many opportunities already, and I'm sure 2017 will have even more in store. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this blogging journey so far! It's been a wonderful and happy year, in so many ways. Now, enough sappy-ness! I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite purchases of 2016, including beauty favorites, fashion favorites, and other lifestyle favorites.

L'oreal Pro Glow Foundation:
This is probably one of my all time favorite foundations. I wrote a review on this foundation over the summer, because it was my go-to. If you're looking for a great, natural everyday foundation, this is the one!

Too Faced Primed and Poreless:
I picked up this primer at Ulta and I absolutely love it. It completely smooths out your skin before foundation. It's definitely worth the extra money for a really good primer!

MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick:
I love this nude lipstick. It isn't too nude, because it's a bit darker than your typical nude. I think it's a great shade for everyday, or also special occasions.

Sephora Bright Future Concealer:
I was looking for a new concealer and I stumbled upon this on Black Friday. I'd seen it used in a few makeup tutorials on YouTube, so I decided to pick it up. It's honestly SO good. It doesn't crease throughout the day and it creates the prettiest brightened effect under the eyes.

Milani Blush in Luminoso:
This is my go-to everyday blush that I discovered this year. I feel like I've been using it almost everyday for months and there's barely a dent in the product!

Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 Palette:
I also wrote a review on this palette, because I love it so much. It's under $10, so it's for sure worth picking up. I picked mine up at Ulta kind of on a whim, but it's definitely a great product to have in your collection.

TheBalm Mary Lou Luminizer:
I definitely got really into highlighters this year. This one is my absolute favorite!

Real Techniques Brushes:
I absolutely fell in love with Real Techniques brushes this year. They're so affordable and they're honestly comparable to higher end brushes.

You guys probably already know many of my 2016 fashion favorites, but here are a few of my favorite fashion purchases of the year. My style definitely evolved a bit this year. I've gravitated more towards simple and classic pieces that will last me a long time. I've been loving pieces that I can easily mix and match and wear with a variety of different outfits.

I'd love to hear some of your favorites of 2016 as well!
