Calling all of my beauty lovers🙋🏾♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏾♀️
I know we all love us some Sephora, and you probably know Sephora does not go on sale often. Actually, there’s only sales going on normally in the spring and around the holidays- so needless to say this sale is one of the biggest of the year!
I often get asked my makeup, skincare and haircare picks, so I thought now it’d be very fitting to share some of my must haves with you guys. I’m spilling my everyday makeup staples, along with my skincare, haircare, and my own personal wishlist from the sale too.
Here are some details about the Spring Savings Event:
BEAUTY INSIDERS: 10% off from 4/23-4/27
VIB: 15% off from 4/21-4/29
ROUGE: 20% off from 4/17-5/1
Anyone can become a beauty insider whenever as well- just enter your needed information on their site. Be sure to use the discount code SPRINGSAVE to get those savings!
Benefit Porefessional Primer– the perfect primer to blur out the pores and control oil without over drying!
Bare Minerals Powder Foundation– a great go to everyday foundation with medium coverage and a natural, luminous finish. During the summer or if you have more oily prone skin, their matte version is great too.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer is a great full coverage yet non cakey concealer. For a natural finish on my face with the necessary imperfections covered, I use concealer first just in the spots that need extra love, set it with my favorite setting powder, then lay over my powder foundation all over.
My favorite brightening under eye powder is hands down bare minerals powder concealer in well rested. It’s luminious and brightens up the darkest of under eyes (🙋🏾♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏾♀️)
Now for bronzer- which is Benefit Hoola all the way. This matte bronzer is perfect for all over bronzing, yet you can also contour with it if you want too. It’s super versatile and works with many different skin types.
Now I’m not going to lie, I’m not huge into blush. I’m really picky too. Nothing too pink, not too purple, nothing to shiny, yet nothing to shimmery too- yeah I know I suck lol. But Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in the shade Captivating has all of the needy products for me. Plus it lasts FOREVER- which if you know makeup, you know that blush is the first product to fade from the face.
I’m that basic girl that’s obsessed with highlighter shamelessly. Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop is such a gorgeous universal, ‘glow from within’ shade, a little goes such a long way so I feel like I definitely get my money’s worth.
You guys ask me about brows all the time lol I plan to eventually share a full time brow routine soon, but for now I’ll just let you know the product run down- Anastasia Beverly Hills all the way with the Dip Brow Pomade (I’m in the shade ebony,) brow wiz (in the same shade) their clear brow gel, and with the dip brow pomade, I use their 7B angled brush.
I’m pretty laid back on eyeshadow these days, so I typically resort to Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom, or Tartelette Toasted palette. They’re both the perfect amount of pigment yet blend able, have the most gorgeous shades, and are easy to travel with.
For mascara I’m normally wearing falsies unless I’m going for a real low key look, but I prioritize my bottom lashes just as much as I prioritize my top. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is the actual best non flakey, lengthening and thickening mascara. It never dries out and is a major staple for my makeup bag.
The right setting spray can literally make or break your makeup for the entire day. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray actually keeps your makeup fresh for hours on hours and I’ve been using it since high school. If you’re an oily complexion, De-Slick by Urban Decay keeps oil at bay from sun up to sun down.
Purity by Philosophy face cleanser– it’s what I’m using now and is very clarifying but not stripping at all. This is the first cleanser I’ve had where my face is actually left feeling soft.
Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe, herbs and rose water. This oldie but a goodie is amazing. I use it in my skincare routine for extra hydration, I use it on my full face of makeup sometimes if I’m feeling a little cakey, on my no makeup makeup looks for extra glow, and when I’m not wearing makeup at all for glow as well. I can’t be without it. I also was having a difficult time of my skin being really off balance last summer, and their facial spray with aloe, herbs and orange blossom helped to balance it out and get it back to being healthy and glowy.
Clinique Clarifying Lotion. I’ve been using this for almost a year now, and I will not part with it. My friend recommended it to me when I was struggling with the super oily skin and this toner keeps my pores clean, helps with breakouts and my sometimes oily t-zone. They have toners for every skin type, but I’m more combination skin type so that’s what I use.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. I’ve been using this cleansing balm for a few months now and I’m still a little newer to using cleansing balms, but I absolutely love this one. My makeup truly melts right off, and switching to balms from makeup wipes for removing my makeup has helped my skin tremendously!
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This isn’t sponsored by Clinique although I wish lmao, I just truly love their skincare. I’m really new to this, I just got it a month or so ago, but I absolutely love it but I’m not surprised because like I just said, Clinique skincare is amazing for me. A little goes such a long way and I use the gel which is for combination to oily skin.
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution. This really helps me with my puffy and dark under eye area and it’s SO affordable.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. This NEVER goes on sale, so if you’re interested in it or have been wanting to get it but have been holding off because of the price, now is the time. You can save up to $40 on it if you’re a beauty insider, $60 for VIB and $80 on it if you’re a Rouge! Read more on my review on the Dyson Supersonic here.
OLAPLEX is one of my favorite haircare brands, but one that hardly ever goes on sale too, so this is another that it’s time to snag on! Their number 3 is an in shower strengthening treatment, their Number 4 and Number 5 are bond maintenance shampoo and conditioner which helps keep fragile hair strong, their number 6 is a moisturizing and smoothing leave in conditioner, and their number 7 is my favorite oil of all time. This is so lightweight so it doesn’t buildup or weigh the hair down but is insanely hydrating and leaves the hair so shiny and has a heat protectant of up to 450 degrees.
OUAI texture spray. I try a lot of texture sprays, but this one is one of the top for me. I get so much volume and that piecey, blown out look from this and it has a good hold to it, without the gritty feel.
OUAI Dry Shampoo Foam– I’ve always been so intrigued by this
Belif Aqua Bomb– I’ve used this before and it’s so hydrating!
Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool– I’ve been dying to try these face lifting tools
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser– I’ve used this before too and it’s one of the most refreshing face washes out there!
Happy shopping, love!
