Since everyone seemed to love last year’s Best of Beauty, I thought I would continue the tradition and bring to you the best of beauty 2017. I have tried so many new products this year, and my favorites have changed quite a bit, so I wanted to share them here with you. I still love all of the products I shared last year, but a few new favorites have taken that number one spot. I’ve always been someone who loves drugstore products just as much as high-end beauty, so you’ll notice products at all different price points. Similarly to last year, I chose a favorite product from each category of make-up, haircare, and skincare. These are the products that stood out from the crowd in 2017:
