OMG, Sephora is having another sale!!!!! This happens once or twice a year and it is the only time you can spend like a celebrity and nobody can say anything about it, not even your husband haha.
Given that I am a certified beauty addict, my Sephora must-haves list is pretty long but oh so necessary! I went over my “Purchases” & my makeup collection and picked out my
ride-or-die beauty products. I will talk a little bit about each product and why you need it in your life. You can thank me later 🙂
Giorgio Armani- Luminous Silk Foundation This is the best foundation created for all normal-dry skin girls. I have gone through EVER BOTTLES of this. Yes, it’s expensive but please please please trust me when I say it is worth every penny and if it was 3x the price I would still purchase it. Oh, and the shades are super tricky so I would suggest swatching it before purchasing.
Anastasia Beverly Hills- Brow Powder This is one of the best brow powders on the market and it’s practically all I use on a my brows. I am in the shade “Taupe.”
Benefit- Gimmi Brow Since we are on the topic of brows, this baby is perfect for anyone with sparse eyebrows. I use this on days I don’t want to do my brows but still want them to look slightly fuller & tamed. I even use them on days where I do define my brows, so it’s definitely a versatile product.
Marc Jacobs- Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Laquer Lipgloss YOU. NEED. THIS. IN. YOUR. LIFE. It is the best lipgloss you will ever try, I guarantee it. Nothing can top this formula it’s creamy, not-sticky, and very shiny. My must-have colors are “Sugar Sugar” & “Pretty Thing.” I just added “Moonglow” to my cart.
First Aid Beauty- Face Cleanser I have tried MANY cleansers in my life and I always go back to this one. It has been my favorite face cleanser for years and I don’t think I will ever replace it. It takes off all my makeup, doesn’t break me out, and it doesn’t dry me out. I am stocking up on this during the sale ✔️
Benefit- Hello Flawless Powder Foundation I have purchased about 3 of these compacts over the past few years, because it is the perfect powder for all skin types. I personally use it to set my face and I don’t use it as a foundation. This powder is also perfect for touch-ups, especially if your foundation gets splotchy throughout the day.
Kat Von D- Shade + Light Contour Palette This palette is perfect for all my fair skin girls and even some of my medium skin girls (olive undertones avoid this). The yellow shade is so amazing I always use it after I set my under eyes & the first two bronzer shades are just gorgeous…not too ashy not too muddy, just right!
Benefit- Rollerlash I have gone through so many tubes of the mascara, I absolutely love it because it doesn’t transfer onto my skin, it doesn’t crumble, and it lasts all day long! My lashes aren’t every long but when I curl it and apply a few coats of this baby they look BOMB.com
Josie Maran- Pure Argan MILK Hydrating Treatment I used to apply this all over my skin almost every night and it worked magic on my dry/dull skin. I would wake up to baby soft glowing skin. I finished my second bottle and branched out to try something else but this is definitely worth a try. P.S. I will have my new skincare routine up soon.
Kevin Aucoin- Sensual Skin Enhancer I started using this product a few months ago in their lightest shade (Sx01) and now I know what all the hype was about; it’s basically an airbrushed concealer. However, it is a bit difficult to work with b/c if you don’t warm it up before applying it it can be sticky & crease! I must say though it is one of the best looking concealers I have ever tried.
Too Faced- Primed & Powerless Primer I have been using this primer for yearsssssssss. It is my #1 favorite face primer and I have a backup of it in my vanity. If you want a smooth & perfect foundation application apply this! Oh and the Primed & Powerless Pressed Powder is really amazing too, I’ve already hit pan on mine.
Make Up For Ever- Ultra HD Foundation This is the perfect foundation to have as a makeup artist because it is compatible with every single skin type (dry, oily, & combo). It photographs beautifully and it’s buildable. I make sure to never run out of this in my kit.
Becca- Shimmering Skin Perfector …in other words a highlighter. Becca highlights are a cult favorite for good reason, they are amazing & highlight pigmented. My top two are “Moonstone” & of course “Champagne Pop” (Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration).
Bobbi Brown- Highlighting Powder If you are looking for a gorgeous pink highlight then look no further. If there is one highlight I cherish in my collection it’s “Pink Glow” from Bobbi Brown. I literally LOVE this highlight. Just please do me a favor and purchase this. Thank you 🙂
Embryolisse- Lait-Crème Concentré If you are looking for a moisturizer to wear underneath your makeup or just something lightweight, this is the best. I use this for daily day use and on any clients who have dry skin.
Hourglass- Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder I use this strobe powder when I want my skin to have a gorgeous healthy glow. Sometimes I even use it under my eyes over my setting powder to brighten up and give a nice subtle sheen. I have the shade “Brilliant,” it’s perfect for light to light/medium skin tones.
Kaplan MD- Lip Mask + Lip Balm If you want your lip lines to be less visible use this lip duo before a special event. I often use the lip balm on its own b/c it does a good job of filling in my lip lines and giving me smooth lips.
L’Occitane- Hand Cream This product is one of the best hand creams on the market. It is moisturizing and it seeps into the skin fairly quickly while leaving your hands soft, NOT greasy. I can’t say I use this every night, because I always forget to apply hand cream, but when my hands get dry this is my go-to.
Stila- Eyes Are The Window Palette Those of you who follow me on Insta know I always use this palette. It is the perfect collection of matte shadows and the texture of these are amazing.
Tarte- Tartelette 2 In Bloom Since we are on the topic of eyeshadow palettes this has to be on my must-haves list. It is the newest palette from the Tartelette collection and it is everythingggggg. The colors are so pigmented, so creamy, and just perfection. The original Tartelette Palette is just as amazing.
Anastasia Beverly Hills- Liquid Lipstick I recently tried ABH liquid lipsticks and I think they are one of the best formulas I have tried. They are very creamy, pigmented, and not drying AT ALL! They also last a very long time. “Pure Hollywood” is a good first shade to purchase, it is a gorgeous nude.
Urban Decay- Naked Concealer This is another great concealer that I love. It is a full coverage concealer that feels very lightweight under the eyes. The applicator on this is very convenient as well.
Vera Mona- Color Switch I almost forgot to mention this product because they just launched in Sephora but I purchased from their website maybe 3 or 4 years ago. I still have it and I still use it every single day. If you don’t know what this is it is basically a dry sponge that allows you to switch eyeshadow colors using only one brush. Meaning you can dip into a dark brown shadow with your brush, then twirl your brush on the sponge and you basically have a shadow-free brush again. Visit their Instagram for video demonstrations.
Urban Decay- Primer Potion This is my favorite eyeshadow primer that I have been using for years. It keeps my shadows on for more than 24 hours and the formula is amazing. I’d like to think I have normal eyelids, they get oily but not super oily, and whenever I use other primers I get a patchy application which makes my eyeshadows go on unevenly. This primer is very creamy and I never get a patchy application. I’ve also started using the Smashbox 24 Hour Shadow Primer and that one is pretty good too.
That is it for my list beauties I hope it was helpful & you added some of my suggestions into your cart 💁🏼
