Here’s the rundown: Sephora’s having their Summer Bonus Sale and it’s going on from Aug 19-27. Depending on your status, you either can’t be qualified or you can get 15% (VIB Members) or 20% (Rouge Members) off with code SUMMERSAVE.
A lot of y’all have been asking for a roundup of my favorites so I’m going to share that in great detail, trying to touch on every category of makeup so that you guys aren’t left hanging + giving options with different price points.
Beauty Blender: Nothing truly compares to the actual beauty blender in my opinion so I always stock up when there’s a sale.
Hourglass Veil Powder Brush: I figured I’d throw in a brush in the mix because a lot of y’all ask about the brushes I use. This one is dual-ended and both sides are wonderful for setting powder, brush, and bronzer.
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector: I use shade medium to deep and apply this before concealer every single time. I have hereditary dark circles and so this corrector helps diminish them + brighten my under eyes.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer: This has been a long time favorite of mine because of how velvety your skin feels after applying. Your makeup will go on 10x smoother and last way longer. The Too Faced Hydrating Primer is also good if you have dry skin like me!
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation: I’ve gotten so many of y’all hooked on this foundation!! Use your fingers when applying (you’ll notice a difference) but this is full coverage yet so light weight. It hides my acne scars like no other! I’m in shade Barcelona.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick: I shared this one stories the other day and y’all it’s SO GOOD!! Full coverage foundation stick that’s easy to travel with and looks so good on your skin. I have shade golden tan!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: This foundation photographs well (no flashback) which is why I love it so much! I’m currently shade 6.5.
Dior Airflash Foundation: This is also a special occasion foundation for me! I’m in shade 301 and I use it when I want that airbrushed, very flawless finish.
Erborian CC Cream Radiance Color Corrector: If you’re looking for something light this summer with SPF coverage this is incredible!! My mom loves this and she rarely puts on makeup. So great for every day wear + if you’re out running errands. I’m in golden!
Too Faced Born This Way Powder Foundation: I wanted to include this in here for my gals that love powder foundation. I tried this and really like how it sat on my skin. Gives you medium coverage and isn’t drying. I’m between shade Latte and Sand.
Cover FX Customer Enhancer Drops: My girlfriend LOVES this product before applying foundation (or mixing it in) and it honestly does work wonders!! Love how glowy your skin is after mixing it with your foundation.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: A must-have concealer. Creamy, hydrating, easy to work with. I get shade custard or ginger.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Concealer: This is NOT your every day concealer. This is thick and has extreme coverage and I only use it for big, fancy occasions (weddings, etc). A little goes a long way with this one.
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder: HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. I’ve shared this for 4+ years and use this to set my under eyes.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder: THE BEST SETTING POWDER EVER CREATED. Don’t waste your time getting anything else. I have extremely dry skin and most powders don’t work but THIS IS INCREDIBLE! I get shade 2 Medium.
Urban Decay Setting Spray: A staple in every make up guru’s vanity.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil: I use this every single day– I’m in shade 4.
Anastasia Clear Brow Gel: This is a GAME CHANGER!! Holds your brows in place + gives them that lift that’s so trending right now.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush: I have pillow talk and love how pigmented it is + how pretty it looks on my skin. Seems like a sold universal shade!
Milk Lip + Cheek: This is for my gals that love multi-use products. Love how this can be used for your lip and cheek and the shades are simply beautiful.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer: A more affordable bronzer compared to the Tom Ford one and it has been one a go-to of mine. Love the pigmentation, doesn’t make me break out, has a VERY subtle shimmer too.
Tom Ford Soleil Glow Bronzer: Look, this is expensive. I still haven’t built up the courage to purchase this but it’s definitely in my shopping cart. I’m just staring at it. My sister bought this and every time she comes in town I always steal it from her!! It blends out so well, the shades are on point and the quality is incredible. If you have the money and want to splurge, go for it.
Lancome CILS Booster XL Mascara Primer: I’ve shared this on all my GRWM’s and still use it! It makes a huge difference in your lashes and this one from Lancome is gold!
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara: There’s tons of mascaras I like but if I had to pick one to go with it’s going to be this Marc Jacobs one. It gives you a lot of volume and thickness without the clumpiness. It’s buildable as well!
DIOR Backstage Highlighter: I don’t own this but it’s in my shopping cart! It seems so travel friendly and a lot of makeup artists rave about this one!
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette: Can’t recommend this palette enough. I always travel with it and it has great every day shades + going out shades. 100% recommend.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick: Okay, I like a lot of lipsticks and I can’t possibly link all of them here but CT Pillow Talk is a staple in every girl’s closet so be sure to get your hands on these! It’s not drying so don’t worry about it saying “matte”.
Buxom Lipgloss: Love Buxom lipglosses!! White Russian is my favorite out of the bunch.
Marc Jacobs Eyeliner: My favorite eyeliner thus far. It’s intense, goes on your waterline with ease and lasts all day.
Too Faced BTS Liquid Eyeliner: This is such a good liquid eyeliner!! I love the tip + it’s super jet black and not too glossy.
Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask: I’m mostly talking about beauty products but needed to include this because it’s just that good. It has this ingredient called “Niacinamide” which helps treat acne and I love it for that. It’s also very moisturizing. You don’t have to wipe this off at night (just sleep in it) and it can be used for your under eyes too. I also love using this before makeup!
Laneige Lip Mask: Great overall lip mask! You’ll wake up with your lips feeling hydrated and smooth. I received this as a gift from the team and really like it so far. I also like Fresh Sugar Lip Hydrating Balm and find that it works just as well.
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks: These eye masks are not only pretty, they’re effective! I like putting them on before I apply make up and that way my under eyes are hydrated and look more youthful.
Supergoop SPF: This is the SPF I use on the daily and it doesn’t leave a grey overcast. Goes on smooth and works well under makeup.
Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb: I saw some of y’all asked about perfumes so I wanted to throw this in the mix! Smells WONDERFUL!
Slipsilk Scrunchies: My favorite hair ties!!! I have such a sensitive scalp (headaches, pony tails, etc give me headaches) but this one is soft and there’s no crimp in your hair when you wake up.
IGK First Class Dry Shampoo: IGK has quickly become one of my favorite hair care brands. Love how well this dry shampoo works and leaves your smelling and feeling great!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Dry Shampoo: Another solid dry shampoo! I like this & the IGK one the same amount.
PHEW!!! Sorry this was long but I really wanted to provide y’all with options when it comes to certain products because everyone’s skin is so different. Plus, I know everyone has a different budge so I’m including different price points too. Hope you found this helpful!! I’ll go over more detail in stories too! Chat soon, xo!
