Great deals for some really great products, I've shared some of my top Sephora favorites below.
|| MAKE UP FOREVER CONCEALER || this is like caffeine for your eyes. I'm a mom and a full time photographer which translates to I DON'T SLEEP. This concealer is my best friend and could be yours too. I go two shades lighter than my foundation to brighten my chronic under eye circles.
|| TATCHA DEWY SKIN MIST || This is my absolute, all time, favorite product ever in the history of forever. It is basically beautiful dewy skin magic spray. It takes my dry and tired skin and transforms it into glowing dewy goodness. I started using this product right when I got pregnant with Mera and I had SO MANY people compliment me on my "pregnancy glow" ....plot twist... it was not pregnancy glow it was this amazing stuff.
|| URBAN DECAY NAKED FLUSH PALETTE || This is the perfect blush, bronzer, and highlighter palette for on the go. I keep this in my purse at all times for touch ups throughout the day, I love that it has all you need in one simple palette. I use the color combo "strip".
|| ANASTASIA BH BEAUTY EXPRESS FOR BROWS AND EYES || I am half Columbian and forever thankful for the full brows trend (and praying it sticks around forever). I do however have sparse areas from being a 90's child who over plucked during that horrible thin brow phase that we'd all like to forget. This comes to my rescue. It also comes with stencils to help guide you with shaping, which is a life saver if you are like me and have no idea what you are doing half of the time. The stencil helped me perfect my brow shape.
|| NARS AUDACIOUS LIPSTICK || The perfect lipstick. Olivia is my favorite shade.
|| BEAUTY BLENDER || I used to roll my eyes when I watched beauty gurus rave over this and tell you it was a necessity in make up application. Then I tried it and now I'm a believer. I also feel like it really needs to be the beauty blender brand to get the full benefit, I've tried other brands and am never as happy with them. Also, wet this guy before using it each time, you guys probably already know that but I didn't until my sister had to explain it to me in a humbling moment where I realized I am no longer the youngest hippest girl around.
|| TARTE SMOOTH OPERATOR FINISHING POWDER || This magic powder sets your concealer for a scary long time.
|| CAUDALIE CLEANSING OIL || I have super dry skin and this cleansing oil is the perfect make up remover/cleanser for me. I love basically everything from this brand but this is my favorite of their products.
|| BOSCIA TSUBAKI SWIRL MOISTURIZER || Love this whole brand and their natural products, this moisturizer saved my skin during pregnancy (and beyond).
|| VITA LIBERATA TAN MOUSSE || If I could go back and fuss (ok scream) at my younger self for the amount of time I spent in the sun (and even more unfortunately... the tanning bed) I would. I now rely on organic spray tans from my girl Kate at Gypsy Lee Rose tans and use this awesome product for the in between. It also is free of a lot of the harmful things you find in other self tanners. It gives a super natural glow without the underlying threat of skin cancer. Win Win.
B O B B I E B R O W N R O U N D UP.
BB is my number one make up brand. If I had to choose only one brand to use for the rest of my life, this would be it. I love how all of their products give you a natural "not trying too hard" look even though I am definitely trying too hard most days just too look alive.
They are doing an amazing sale right now where you get 25% off, free shipping, AND a full size product free gift if you spent $85+ so basically you need to run like the wind bulls eye and buy all the stuff.
|| SKIN FOUNDATION WITH SPF || This is the perfect foundation for everyday and I love that you can layer for extra coverage when you need to. They have so many shades to choose from and it blends beautifully. MY FAVORITE.
|| TINTED MOISTERIZER || In the summer months I will alternate between the above foundation and this amazing tinted moisturizer. I've used the tinted moisturizer since I was in high school and I've never strayed from it because it is just that good.
|| CREAMY CONCEALER KIT || I use this for touch ups throughout the day, its perfect because it has concealer and finishing powder in one little compact.
|| POT ROUGE || I love this for a dewy glow. I prefer cream blushes over powder because my skin is on the dryer side and it helps me look more natural and glowy ( I realize that isn't a real word but it should be).
|| VITIMIN ENRICHED FASE BASE || Love this face cream, I use it as my pre make up moisturizer. Perfect for all skin types and it smells so good.
|| SKIN SMOOTHING PORE PREFECTOR || This is a miracle worker for me, I use it as my primer and couldn't possibly love it more.
There are so many great products at both places, I am sure I missed some! What are you favorites?
