It’s the time we have all been waiting for! The Spring sale at Sephora!! 20% now through Monday May 6th for Rouge Members.
Here are some of my favorite staple items that I recommend. To be honest, as an avid makeup lover I have so many favorites, but I tried to keep it to one product per category. Comment down below if you want a full list of favorites.
Fasrsali Unicorn Essence
I don’t exactly know exactly what is so special about this, but when I pair it with my NARS foundation, I know its going to be a good makeup day.
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation
I literally cannot live without this. No matter what I am trying out that is new and now, this one will always have a spot in my collection. I am in the shade Punjab.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Not drying and covers what it needs to. I wear the shade Custard.
The BECCA Hydramist Powder
It sets everything, makes it last, and is never cakey. Its also a nice experience to put on.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
The original is a good color for me to bronze and contour.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes
Perfect amount of pigmentation and lasts such a long time. There is also a great color range.
The Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
This is so underrated. It is perfect for no makeup makeup, subtle glam looks, and also gives enough for when you’re going all out.
I have so many favorites and I change it up depending on my look. Many times I can use 2-3 palettes for a look. One recommendation I can give especially for the Spring season is the Modern Renaissance Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. The color scheme is very versatile and all Anastasia shadow palettes have a great formula. (Note: I do know the controversy with the Subculture palette. I have it and you can work with it–however it is definitely more finicky than the other palettes and take a bit more time to blend out)
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner
I do love the versatility of a gel eyeliner. It has enough staying power and creaminess to go in your waterline and fluid enough to create a winged liner. This is a great one.
The Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Everything you need and want. Volumizing, lengthening, and long lasting
The Makeup Forever Aqcua Lipliner
This formula is amazing. Glides on and stays on. Shade 3C is such a go-to shade for me.
Another hard category to narrow down! But here is oneeee option (of many great ones). The Hourglass Confession lipstick is pricey but wow what a formula. High pigment and smooth application.
Marc Jacobs Enamored High Shine Lipgloss
I LOVE Marc Jacobs lip glosses. Such a great level of pigmentation and shine.
The Jet Lag Mask by Summer Fridays has SAVED my skin during traveling. I always apply it for flights and for any hydration pick me ups.
Cleanser and Moisturizer
Murad is a brand that definitely agrees with my skin and has helped me tremendously fight and prevent my acne. They also make value sets which I think are 100% worth the investment. The products are large/full size and work great. I definitely recommend getting the Clear Control 60 Day Kit. If not the Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser is the must have in the set. My favorite moisturizer has been the Nutrient-Charged Water Gel which has been incredible to moisturize the skin but doesn’t clog my pores.
The Cinema Secrets brush cleaner is by far the best out there. It cleans your brushes and drys instantly.
