Best Of 2015 In Beauty & Makeup By Ira
How time flies right?
Yes, its is 2015 ending in two days and a new year of hopes, life experiences and better chances is all set to welcome all of us!
Talking about the year 2015 in particular, I was really happy how it fared for my skin and with the changed lifestyle I no more struggled with the sudden breakouts which somehow always used to make my Christmas and New Year pictures totally horrible! However, I did experience mild skin irritations due to sun exposure and a major skin dryness when I shifted to the capital city, Delhi! Well, I didn’t try anything miraculous and kept it basic!
Makeup wise, I am not a makeup addict but love to get dolled up for special occasions!! Well, after moving to Delhi I left so much of my makeup items back at home only and so I don’t indulge in makeup these days on a day to day basis!
So it is mainly skincare, basic hair care and essential makeup for me! And as the here ends I would like to share some of my best beauty and makeup products from the year 2015.
Beauty Favorites 2015
So, these are the products I have been loving throughout the year! Some more products I have mentioned which are not in this picture as they got emptied and thrown away!
I really found this face scrub doing much more gentle cleansing and scrubbing! I also used the Garnier apricot face scrub but this one was much better!
I am mad about this face wash and through the most humid months of May, June & July it was all along with me keeping my skin clear and non-oily! Then it got over and I started with Garnier Neem face wash. Finally I am hooked to this Clean N Clear Morning Energy Face Wash.
This was a gift by a dear friend and I can’t thank her enough for introducing me to this face mask, It considerably reduced the appearance of spots left after the breakouts subsided! It is so soothing and cooling that I love using it every now and then!
Lakme Deep Pore Cleanser-
Another great product I loved this year is this cleanser which is really gentle and takes away the dirt and impurities so effectively! It doesn’t leaves my face greasy unlike some creamy cleansers!
This was a nice day cream I tried this year and started using it in mid September! It keeps the skin matte and uniform and also protects from sun rays! It is not suitable for winters though and so I will try it in 2016 March on wards!
It is the latest product in my stash and I started using it in November itself! I like how this products evens out the skin and gives a matte shine free look!
One of the most miraculous product that I started using on Anamika’s recommendation when I struggling with dry and scaly skin due to the drastic climate change for my skin after moving to Delhi. I think winters and Bio-oil is indispensable to each other for any skin type!
I finished the product in summers and found it really great for my super oily t-zone during the humid months of the year!
I have previously tried the cream version as well from Lotus but somehow this gel version suits me more and doesn’t make my face greasy at all the whole year from March to September.
Makeup Favorites 2015
Loved it for the natural and invisible uniform look!
My go to product for normal days when I am going out in the sun or visiting a mall.
Maybelline New York Suprafresh Compact
Got it recently and use it daily for the perfect veil of powder! It is very natural looking and looks great!
Loved the natural peach pink glow flush on my cheeks. I use it mainly for occasions only!
Swear to the pigmentation, creamy and non-smudging texture. It stays for a great while and it is actually waterproof!!
Fabulous kajal pencil which neither smudges or fades unless removed!
Loved it round the year and loving it more in the winters. It is tint-less and perfectly nourishes the lips.
Lovely peach nude shade!
Maybelline Colorshow Go Graffiti Nail Color #Blueberry Bombshell
Loved this shade so much so that it has been there on my nails repeatedly week after week! Even now it is on my nails! 🙂
Hair Care Favorites 2015
I tried few homemade hair packs and loved the Multani Mitti & Curd Hair Pack for treating my dry frizzy hair during summers!
Shampoo & Conditoner
I used Fabindia Aloe Vera Protein Shampoo but didn’t quite like it. I am loving how this L’Oreal Smooth Intense shampoo turns my hair so smooth and manageable even when I skip using conditioner in a hurry!
Loved this conditioner from Tresemme and after trying many variants from this brand throughout the year, I can say this works well for my hair type!
I quite liked this serum and it make my hair so much smoother after blow drying!
Body Care Favorites-
Didn’t use many body products as most of the time I used a paste of brown sugar and gram flour for body scrubbing and followed it up with Vaseline Body Lotion.
I am currently using this moisturizer for my body!
So this was all I found to be really great for my skin care, makeup and hair care routine! I hope you too must have found some or the other miraculous product this year! Do share yours! 🙂
