What to shop for?
I love love love when Sephora has sales. They only happen a few times a year so I specifically wait to buy larger products or something I have been wanting to experiment with during these sales. Since we are all during this time, it would be a great idea to ramp up your skin care routine! We have the time so why not?! I have been trying a few new skincare items that will be included in the sale and they are GOOD (and affordable)! I will share these in a little.
I am going to share what is in my makeup bag that I use everyday and that I truly love. I will also share some items I am hoping to get and try because I have had my eye on them.
First up, Skincare
For the last two weeks I have started using the Tatcha Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser and the Water Cream. These make my skin feel incredible. I use them each morning! I bought the mini sizes to see if I liked them and I love them.
I have also started using The Ordinary "No-Brainer" set. I actually only use two of the products right now (one I can't use because I am breastfeeding), but I am obsessed with the way they make my skin feel. I can see a significant difference in my skin. It looks brighter and more even tone- which is huge for me because I have awful acne scars. This set is only $29 and it is amazing. I can't wait to try more from this brand!
Next, what is in my make-up bag that i love
Okay all of the products I am going to share now are products I use every single day. I can do my makeup in less than 15 minutes now and on the floor anywhere in my house (wherever I am with Andrew) thanks to these holy grail products.
Foundation- I am obsessed with this Hourglass foundation stick. It goes on so easily and blends perfectly with a damp beauty blender. I love the texture and the coverage it gives my skin. It also feels SO lightweight on my face! I wear the color Linen.
Color Corrector- This is not something that is necessary in your make-up routine but I really need it. It is a color corrector that helps take away dark under eye circles. I apply a little of this under my eyes and use a damp beauty blender to blend it all in. Then, I apply my concealer. It is amazing. I can tell a difference if I don't use it! I wear the color fair.
Concealer- I must be on an Hourglass kick becauses I am also equally obsessed with the concealer! This stuff does the WORK you want a concealer to do. I have dark circles with my crazy sleep schedule now and this covers them so well. A little goes a lonnnnng way. I think this bottle will last me such a long time. I wear the color Birch.
Blush- I mentioned this a previous blog post, but this Nars Liquid Blush in the color Orgasm is so so beautiful. Don't be scared about it being liquid. It is so easy to dab into your skin and it blends beautifully. A little goes a very long way!
Bronzer & Highlighter- I have used this kit for months (I bought it during the Sephora sale in the fall) and I love it! It has beautiful colors for bronzer that blend so well and has the best highlighter ever. The highlighter can also be used for the inner corner of your eyes for a pop! I can't recommend this palette enough! It is a splurge but to buy during a sale is the best time. It does come in a mini, but the mini doesn't have the highlighter color that I love. You want the highlighter Cookie, which you can buy individually if you don't want the set.
Brows- I get so many questions about my brows and I have to tell you they are truly a mess without this product. I have used the Anastasia Brow Wiz in the color Taupe for years. I stock up when it is on sale. Nothing compares.
Lipstick- I have talked about this lipstick so many times and I am sure you hear everyone talking about! It is the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the color Kim KW. It is the best nude color ever. Again with this product, a little goes a long way! I will be repurchasing during the sale because I have finally used up one whole stick! It is the only lipstick I ever use.
Perfume- This is a wonderful time to buy perfume. You usually cannot get these perfumes on sale any other time! I have two that I wear and love. I switch it up daily but love both so much. First, I love the Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. The smell is just beautiful and you only need one spray to last you the day. Next, I love Dolce and Gabbana in Dolce Garden. This scent is sweet and floral. Whenever I wear this I get so many compliments. It's so pretty!!
PRODUCTS I WANT TO TRY
I won't talk about any of these products because I personally have not tried them. I have heard and read great things about them and they have been on my brain! Let me know if you like to use any of them 🙂
