Beauty Products Bloggers Recommend
Hailey & Paige — The Middle Closet
The Middle Closet speaks to high-end brands with more moderately priced beauty products. Their blog is centered around fashion and style, but they’ve added beauty to their categories. Right now, they are raving about Marula Oil Styling Cream that has become the newest favorite in their beauty routine.
Marula Oil Styling Cream — $30
Some women may not be aware of the fact that you should wash your hair as little as possible. Cleansing too often will strip the natural, essential oils that keep your hair healthy and less damaged. If your hair gets frizzy and dry in between washings, Marula Oil is Hailey’s go-to product time and again. It tames the frizz and leaves no heavy residue.
Keep Your Skin Clear

Neutrogena Naturals Acne Cream Cleanser — $8.49
Caroline has informed her readers that her skin “really likes this cleanser”. However, she does have suggestions on the proper usage. Do not use while using topical retinol creams. There is menthol in this skin cleanser and would be too harsh on the skin. She suggests using it in the morning for a refreshing boost to begin your day. The skin is left feeling soft with tightness, and Caroline recommends it highly for acne-prone skin.
Use The Right Tools for Applying Makeup
Madeleine Spencer — Madeleine Loves
Real Techniques MultiTech Set
To obtain a flawless finish with your makeup, it’s vital to use the correct tools for an airbrushed look. This four-brush set is designed to fit into the contours of your face. They focus on concealing an imperfection, lining your lips, and completing your favorite eye look. They are labeled by size (S • XS • XXS • XXXS) with the same conical cut which allows you to apply products with precision.
There is a large and extra large set, but Madeleine has found the smaller brushes to be the most useful.

The Best Foundation for a Flawless Look
Sali Hughes — Sali Hughes Beauty
The best in luxury bases across all categories, for every skin type, age and skin tone, Sali has chosen Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
Armani Luminous Silk Foundation — $64
Inspired by charmeuse silk, “The Fabric of Emperors,” this foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless glow. Using the exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten, this buildable, medium coverage foundation improves texture and blurs imperfections.
If you’re looking for a polished, clear, and long lasting base, Luminous Silk is the way to go. It gives good, natural coverage, a healthy looking finish and provides a wide range of shades for your convenience. Using a brush, your fingers, or a sponge, it blends very well and offers a perfectly smooth base.
Powder Blush Wonder
World-renowned makeup artist — Lisa Eldridge
Lisa caters to A-List clients and makes a series of tutorials that has thousands of views on YouTube. She knows her beauty products! When it comes to blushes, Lisa highly recommends Benefit’s GALlifornia powder blush that has a golden shimmer. It captures California in a 1970s hippy chick box. It works well for fair, medium, and darker-skinned olive tones. For a modern, vibrant feel, coat the lips with a bright coral color and lip gloss.
Benefit’s GALlifornia — $24.50
Working as a beauty consultant for many years myself, I adore beauty products and have a recommendation of my own. I’ve tried nearly every makeup line from high-end to drugstore brands. It’s not necessary to buy expensive beauty products all the time. However, for some beauty products such as foundation, I will spend the extra money that is multi-tasking, simple and provides a flawless finish.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in A Compact SPF 50 Foundation w/ Luxe Brush — $39.54
Confidence in a Compact is the first-ever solid serum foundation from IT Cosmetics. IT is an acronym for Innovative Technology. It’s an anti-aging serum, full-coverage foundation, and SPF 50 sunscreen all in one easy step. Formulated with hydrolyzed collagen, ceramides, squalane, and hyaluronic acid, the serum-thin consistency feels completely weightless on your skin!
The brush included is the perfect tool for the consistency of this product. When speaking of foundations, it really isn’t all that expensive. The brush alone is worth the price of the entire kit. This foundation eliminates the need for an SPF and even a moisturizer before applying makeup. That is what I call multi-tasking.
The beauty bloggers and their recommended beauty products are top of the line. With how successful these women are, they wouldn’t mention them if they didn’t work. Thousands of their followers try these beauty products and are nearly always happy with the results.
Make it a priority to put your best face forward this year and try the beauty products listed above. You’ll be on your way to fresh, flawless-looking skin in 2017!
