My Top 14 of 2014 in Beauty

Here are my couldn't live withouts this year in beauty, skincare, and hair..but mostly beauty...not easily narrowed down to 14 :)  Have a beauty of a New Year Everyone!
Redken Color Rebel Hair Makeup
nugg Face Masks

Mun No. 1 Aknari Serum  came as a sample vial in one of my beauty boxes this year that I had to repurchase the full size of it. Prickly Pear Seed oil instills radiance and resilience, while Rose and Argan oils transform the appearance of your skin. It's hydrating, brightening, works beautifully as a primer under makeup and it smells amaaaazing. Rotating this with Vitamin C's has been a working combination for my skin.

NUGG face masks are single servings treats for your skin. I loved these for popping in to my bag when traveling. They're single use packs but you can get a good three uses out of them. The formula is light, colorless, thick, and so pampering to the skin. There's a huge variety targeting any skin issue you might need them for. Big fan of the soothing and revitalizing ones.

EDDIE FUNKHOUSER Luxlight Revitalizing Foundation is the new kid I've only been using for a couple months, but it's replaced all of my other foundation's in that short time. Lightweight, natural coverage, luminous, and the best color match for my NW15 skintone. To finish perfected skin corrects like EVE PEARL Salmon Concealer for dark circles. I've used this for years now and really nothing compares. For further concealing NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer takes the top spot. Amazing coverage, long lasting, and it doesn't settle in to fine lines so it can be used under the eyes as well. The JAPONESQUE BB Brush is excellent as a foundation brush, the finish is flawless no matter what consistency of product you're using.

COLOURPOP was my favorite new makeup line of 2014 and the eyeshadow's the best new product discovery of the year. $5 a pop, excellent formula, and so many different shades and finishes to choose from. I wear one of these nearly every day as a base or shadow. I don't know how they do it,  these shadows are so good and so inexpensive. (Reviewed them here!)
Urban Decay Naked Palette's. No surprises here, these are cult classics that should be in the favorite's hall of fame by now.  Cailyn Cosmetics Eye Primer was a surprise because I knew nothing of this brand. This eyeshadow primer has a weightless base with a cream concealer look and feel. It enhances vibrancy and locks down your shadows all day.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Only mascara I've ever raved about. Still sexy. Still raving.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick's. The three shades on my rotation at all times are F-BOMB, Anarchy, and Turn On. They wear like nobodies business and feel like you've got nothing but a moisturizing lip balm on...except you've got super awesome pigmented lips on. Creamy Badass Luxury indeed.

Turning it up even more on the bold lips front was Too Faced Melted Lipstick's. Insane true to tube colors and one of the most vividly pigmented yet easy to wear formula's.
Klorane Shampoo with Chamomile hasn't left my shower since I started using it. Moisturizing with chamomile to brighten your hair for a natural sun kissed look, smells really nice too.  Redken Color Rebel's. Unlike messy chalks and powders Color Rebel uses makeup technology with direct color pigments depositing a very fine colored micro-coating on the surface of the hair with a sponge applicator. I loved these for the believable temporary color that truly is temp, 2 washes and you're back to "normal".

Thank you all for continuing to visit M.M.M.! Blogging and doing makeup on the internet wasn't a huge priority of mine this past year, add it to the list of resolutions :) Become less of the elusive under the radar Pisces Artist perhaps?

Getting more active in social media is also something I'm trying to get in to. I've dusted off this twitter account to start using now for blog updates, chit chatting, and makeup things.
