beauty | top 10 of 2018!

I still can't believe it's 2019, but yet here we are rounding up the best of beauty for last year! These are the products I was constantly reaching for the most last year. I've got some skincare, some makeup, some tools, and a little hair care. I've also teamed up with some of my fave dolls on the internet to share links to their lists as well and I already have carts full of their goodies. 

Morphe's M501 for highlighting is the MOST perfect brush. It puts on the right amount of highlight to really step up your glow game. 

Morphe's M444 foundation brush has been a game changer for me. I was in the market for one for a while and grabbed this towards the end of the year, but it still totally counts because I'm no longer using my fingers to apply every morning. 

Clean & Clear Night Relaxing Detox Clay Mask is the best way to end the day. Whether you have 5 minutes or half hour to spare, this really cleans out your pores. 

Kate Somerville's Exfolikate helps my dry skin so much! It really gets rid of all the dead skin and helps my skin glow. Pro tip, put this on dry skin and rub in and then hop in a steamy shower and let it sit for about a minute or so and then rub in circles again! Your skin will be SO smooth!

Wet n' Wild's Megaglo Highlight in Blossom Glow is the best highlighter in the game. Seriously, it's my fave product of the year and you can tell how well loved she is-hitting pan :(

Dry Face Razor has been another skin saver. This gets all my peach fuzz off as well as every little bit of dry, dead skin. The hair that grows back isn't darker or thicker than what you shaved off-promise! I was skeptical, but now I swear by it. My skin is glowy and makeup glides on like a freaking dream. 

Kylie Cosmetics Koko Kollection palette has the second half of my fave highlighting duo and the best summer blush of all time. I use the highlight and then use the Wet n' Wild one on top and glow to the Gods. The blush is perfect for the warmer months on it's own and then a great base to layer a more mauve shade (like Tarte's Exposed) on top in the fall & winter.

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black gives my lashes SO MUCH LIFE. I used this in the past and went back to it in the summer and it's honestly the best. And the Carbon Black color is the best to get my lashes nice and dark.

Morphe's Matte Lip in School Girl okay, I'll be honest, I toyed around with getting this for a while, but honestly this matte formula is PERFECTION. It's not drying on, your lips will feel so freaking smooth all day long. I can't wait for them to expand the shade range cause I will buy them all.

Redken Color Extend Blondage has been the best purple shampoo for me. I've tried them all (no seriously, I have...) and I keep reaching to this one out of the 4 in my shower at all times. Bonus, it smells like my high school crush's cologne (Polo Sport...I went to HS from 98-02, it shows...)-serious yum!
