One of the best parts about beginning another year is the self-confidence that comes with time! As a lifestyle blogger, I spend a lot of time on camera, and that requires a basic understanding of make up skills. Featured today on Theresa’s Reviews, I’m sharing my top beauty picks for 2019.

Whether I’m on camera for a photo shoot or television segment or whether I’m dropping the children at a playdate, my typical makeup look is simple enough to work for any casual occasion. Occasionally I try out different products, but time has taught me that one look works best for me. These are my top beauty picks going into the new year!

With 12 shades of eyeshadow ranging from a light neutral to dark brown and black, Urban Decay Naked2 Eyeshadow Palette is my go-to palette for any occasion. While I prefer the shimmery colors to brighten my skin, this also has matte colors.

I usually choose a hue called Verve. With its velvety texture, it adds shimmer and decadent color without looking too dark for daily use. Although Verve also comes as a separate eyeshadow, using the palette to go darker for special occasions is helpful.Theresa's Reviews Top Beauty Picks for 2019

Mascara

Even on a low key day when I’m not in front of the camera or going anywhere, mascara instantly makes me feel more composed and more energetic. Drug store mascara never works right for me because it smudges and doesn’t offer the volume I need. Instead, I trust Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof to make my eyelashes look their best.

Face Cream and Serum

To bring luminosity and purity to my complexion, the Sublimage products from Chanel are spectacular. Sublimage L’Essence is a concentrated serum that feels very light when applied. For an effective skincare routine, follow with Sublimage La Creme.

Powder

Since liquid foundation is thick and noticeable on my skin, I rely on Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. Flawless coverage happens instantly and it looks natural.

Brushes

For the best coverage, apply powder with a powder brush from the Artistry Brush Set. Another useful part of the brush set is the eyebrow brush because it quickly creates a more put together look for any occasion.

Eyeliner

If there’s one product that can be affordable, it’s eyeliner. Any drugstore brand seems to work as well as the designer brands. My current eyeliner is NYX Slim Eye and Eyebrow Pencil. Black creates a more dramatic look, and brown is more subtle. It goes on smoothly to accentuate the eyes.
