While I’m not a beauty expert by any means, there are definitely a few products I always stock up on during a Sephora haul. These are products I’ve found that have really made a difference in my skin and overall beauty routine.
This primer goes on so smoothly. Some I’ve tried in the past had weird textures that felt odd going on my skin, but Smashbox’s primer is easy to apply and definitely keeps my foundation in place all day long.
As I’ve gotten older, my preferences have shifted from lip gloss to lipstick. I’m always up for finding a new color. Bite is my preference when I want something that goes on like a lip balm. It’s really smooth and soft, and I always recommend it to people. In addition to Bite, a few of my other favorite lipstick brands include NARS and YSL.
NARS blush and bronzer
NARS is definitely one of my favorite beauty brands. I apply this blush stick formula directly on my face and then blend with a blush brush. The ‘orgasm’ color is my favorite, and there’s a reason it’s an iconic NARS color. I think it’s a shade that looks great on everyone.
NARS also carries my favorite bronzer. This comes in a powder formula. I’ve found that a little goes a long way, and I’ll use this to contour and add color.
Clarisonic Mia 2
If there’s one product of my beauty favorites that I really think you should invest in, it’s the Clarisonic. I’ve always struggled with acne and tried a couple of prescriptions, but I’ve found that the Clarisonic does a great job and has really made a difference in my skin. If you’re using it at night, I recommend removing your makeup first so as to keep the brush from getting discolored. You will want to replace the brush every couple of months. The replacement brush heads come in a few different options, so you can choose one based on your skin type.
Every winter I struggle with dry skin. Anyone else have that issue where your skin peels, and you feel like you need five layers of moisturizer to hide it? Well, this Sephora moisturizer really kept my skin hydrated and minimized those issues. I also like that it’s not too heavy of a moisturizer. Definitely recommend it for year round use, but if you switch moisturizers in the winter, consider trying this one.
Too Faced mascara
Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara is simply the best. Once I asked a Sephora consultant about switching to a different mascara. She said there is really nothing better than Too Faced’s mascara. It provides volume and length, and it’s always something that makes it on my Sephora list.
