Yearly Favorites- Best in Beauty 2016

Hi guys!

Today I’ll be sharing my favorite beauty products of 2016 (finally!) As I was making a list of all the standout products from this past year, I wasn’t able to get over that 2016 had come and gone in the blink of an eye. I got married at the end of 2015, so it was a bit surreal for me that one year of marriage had flown by so fast. Before I know it, I’ll be doing my 2017 favorites. So, if you guys want to see what my 2016 beauty favorites are then just keep reading! (:
