Top Picks | Beauty Brands

Makeup has been something I've been interested in for a few years now. Though I consider myself to have more than decent amount of beauty products in my stash from various brands, I feel like there is still so many other brands I have yet to try. From the bunch of companies I have sampled from though, I've come to figure out which ones I really vibe with and which ones I could care less about. Today, I want to share my favourite beauty brands that have never left me disappointed based on the products I own from them.

Anastasia Beverly Hills |  The first product I ever bought from ABH was the Brow Wiz and that was the one thing that got me hooked. When I say that brow pencil was life changing, I mean it. It changed the game for me. After that, I went on to buy some more of their eyebrow bits and I've honestly loved them all. Just a few months ago, I finally tried their eyeshadows in the Modern Renaissance and, well, let's just say I am hooked. Top 3: Brow Definer, Concealer, Brow Powder Duo

Hourglass | I'm kind of cheating by mentioning this brand because I only own three products from them, but each one is amazing. I haven't been let down by the brand yet and I'm not even sure I will be. I just bought a foundation from them a few weeks ago which I'm supposed to review by the end of this month, but *spoiler alert* I already love it! My regular readers will already know what product I'm going to mention from this brand since I'm constantly raving about it. Top 3: Veil Mineral Primer, Ambient Lighting Palette, Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick 

Becca Cosmetics | When you think 'Becca', what's the first thing that comes to mind? For me, it's highlighters. I am thoroughly convinced that they have the best highlighters in the game right now. Again, this is a brand that has never let me down. Even with the whole Becca x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette controversy, I didn't really have a major problem with mine. When I pack a travel makeup bag, you will always find a Becca product in there. Top 3: Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Opal, Becca x Jaclyn Hill Face Palette

Lush | This is sort of new brand to me, but I have tried a few of their products and, just like all the above, I've enjoyed all their stuff. Not only that, but I'm also fond of the in-store experience. I wrote a post about it that you can read here. I'm definitely a fan and I'm itching to go get me some more of their goodies! Top 3: Big Shampoo, The Comforter Shower Cream, Rainbow
