Sephora Spring Savings Event

Sephora’s spring savings event is finally here, and I’m breaking down all of my favorites! I love this sale because your discount can be used as many times as you’d like, so if you place an order and forget something or find something else you want, you don’t have to worry about it being a one time use!

 

 

Foundation

I rarely wear foundation now, we could potentially blame this on the pandemic.. but if you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you’ll know I’ve always preferred a more natural makeup look! Here are my favorites..

Light coverage – Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint – I wear this daily now! It has mineral SPF 40, doesn’t irritate my skin or break me out, and gives the most beautiful glow + hydration + light dewy coverage! Plant based Squalane hydrates without clogging pores, Hyaluronic acid plumps and boosts your skins moisture levels, and Niacinamide smooths texture, fine lines, and pores. Oil free, Fragrance free and a natural finish. I use shade 11.5

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter – I’ve worn this for years, and it’s still a holy grail product for me. This is not necessarily a foundation, however you can absolutely use this as your base without wearing a foundation on top. This is a complexion booster, and blurs imperfections, giving a filter like effect. Radiance level 100 with this product. Apply before foundation as a “primer”, mix it in, or just as a highlighter. This is a fool-proof, multi use product! I wear shade 1 if I want to brighten the center of my face, shade 3 or 4 depending on my tan for the entirety of my face.

Medium coverage – Georgio Armani Luminous Silk – I love that this foundation looks very natural, more like skin, while giving a medium amount of coverage. I wear shade 5.9

Full coverage – Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear 5-in-1 Foundation Stick – I LOVE this foundation. It’s full coverage but VERY natural looking. I don’t feel it on my skin, and it’s incredibly convenient and easy to blend. It wears all day for me without transfer. Great for all skin types! I wear shade 330 Bisque

 

Concealer + Setting Powder

Nars Radiant Creamy – I love this for concealing and brightening while still maintaining that natural makeup look. Wonderful if you have dry skin. I use shade Vanilla.

RMS Beauty Uncoverup – I’ve had this for years now. It’s amazing! If I want to cover something up, I use this. If I’m wearing no makeup, or going for the “no makeup-makeup” look, I use this every single time! It covers while looking like I have nothing on my skin. A true unicorn. I use shade 22.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Setting Powder I have tried many setting powders, and while nothing I tried was “horrible”, this has remained #1 and will be my top recommendation! This sets my concealer, and anywhere I want to set my makeup, giving a really nice airbrushed finish and doesn’t crease or cake up throughout the day. I use shade 2 when I’m tan, and 1 for brightening or in the winter.

 

Bronzer + Blush + Highlighter 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Vol.1 – This palette is my top recommendation if you want that radiant glow. (Not glittery!) This is not a highlighter, it’s actually a finishing powder that recreates the look of radiant light on your skin! This literally makes you look lit from within. 10/10 highly recommend!

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in shade Spotlight – I love the shade of this highlighter, it works really well with my skin tone when I’m not tan and when I am. Lasts all day on my skin. I’ve been using this every time I get ready!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer – I’ve always used the shade “luminous bronze light”, but did just order the “Radiant Bronze” for the summer! This is hands down the best bronzer I’ve ever used, and gives a serious glow while lasting all day.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic blush – I’ve used the shades “Sex on Fire” and “Ecstasy” for a couple years now, and always a top recommendation. Beautiful pigment and last all day.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush – I use the shade “Sublime Flush”, and highly recommend Hourglass blush! I look youthful and well rested when I use this, my go-to.

 

Eyes

Tarte In Bloom Shadow Palette This is a great, natural and neutral, everyday shadow palette!

Charlotte Tilbury Darling Palette – I love this palette, and reach for it when I want a very sexy eye look. The tones are a warm, pink.

Lancome Cils Booster XL Mascara Primer – This enhances my mascara x10! Helps lengthen and volumize. When I don’t use this, I see a clear difference.

Lancome Idole Mascara – This is hands down my favorite mascara! Lifts, lengthens and gives really great volume without flaking, clumping or smudging.

 

Lips

 

Charlotte Tilbury “Pillow Talk” – This is the perfect, any day, anytime lip color.

Charlotte Tilbury “Love Bite” – A warm and classic red.

Fenty Beauty Gloss bomb “Fenty Glow” – Universally flattering lip gloss. I wear this alone or on top of all of my lipsticks.

 

Brushes

Hourglass foundation brush – I love this brush for my Ilia skin tint, and Georgia Armani luminous silk. Blends out perfectly without making my foundation look thick and cakey.

Hourglass Veil Powder brush – I LOVE this dual sided brush. The small side I use for my finishing, and setting powders as well as highlighters. The larger side I use for my bronzer but can also be used for blush.

 

Skincare + Body + Self Tanner 

Farmacy Ultra-Hydrating Honey Grail Face Oil – I’ve repurchased this facial oil so many times that I’ve lost track! Very hydrating, but soaks into my skin instead of sitting on top. It’s thick, but does soak in quickly! Honey is anti inflammatory and anti bacterial. I use this daily.

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning drops – I use shade dark, and LOVE the color these drops give me. Not heavily fragranced like most self tanners, and last so long on my skin. I mix 1-3 drops into my moisturizer and apply to my face. For my body, I mix into my body moisturizer or the Isle of Paradise tanning butter lotion. Use as many drops as you’d like depending on how deep of a tan you want + very sparingly near ankles knees and hands.

St Tropez Ultimate Glow Mousse kit – If I need quick color, I like having a self tanning mousse on hand. I recently tried this and really enjoyed it. The color is very natural and looks exactly like my real olive tone tan + I found it very forgiving and easy to use. No streaks or patches.

Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating –  I use this moisturizer in the mornings before my makeup, anytime my skin feels really dry! I have normal to dry skin, and find this very hydrating + definitely plumping while giving a really pretty glow. Works well on my sensitive skin, too!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – I LOVE this body moisturizer! A staple in my bathroom. My body tends to be dry, and I also battle psoriasis, and this is a life saver. Bonus points for it being a clean product + no fragrance.

Hair

Olaplex No3 – I use this bond building hair treatment 1-2 times a month. For more severely damaged hair, you can use more often until hair is in better health. This treatment repairs the broken hair bonds, reducing breakage and strengthening hair from within.

Olaplex Bonding Oil – This is a heat protectant, that also protects your color and helps with frizz. I love that this is super lightweight, as someone with fine hair most hair oils make my hair look greasy, this doesn’t. Concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way and this bottle lasts forever.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo – A staple in my hair routine, and always repurchase. This dry shampoo actually cleans my hair, and doesn’t leave it feeling gross and full of product.

T3 undone waves wand barrel + interchangeable base – I have fine hair, this curling wand gives me the waves that I love, and holds my them for days.

 

Fragrance 

Dolce and Gabbana Garden – Warm floral. I get compliments on this perfume every time I wear it. It smells AMAZING, hands down the best + doesn’t give me a headache, if you are fragrance sensitive like me this is wonderful.
