NARS Light Reflecting Advanced Skincare Foundation : I absolutely love this medium coverage makeup-skincare-hybrid foundation. It’s natural finish blurs and smooths, perfect for covering redness and blemishes. This has always been a go-to for both myself and my clients!
B-Goldi Bright Illuminating Drops : This Drunk Elephant niacinamide based product is worth every penny! Great for combination skin, this product addresses everything from dry skin to dark spots to fine lines to uneven texture. A few drops of this mixed with your foundation not only gives your skin what it needs but it also gives you a gorgeous bronze glow.
Dior Backstage Primer : This is my absolute favorite primer for both my person and professional makeup kit(s). A makeup primer is the glue that holds all of your makeup together and prolongs the life of your foundation, etc.
Huda Easy Bake Loose Baking & Setting Powder : Easily a top 5 product in my makeup kit! This Huda powder blends seamlessly into the skin with a matte finish to both control your shine and keep your makeup in place all day.
Anastasia Brow Wiz : This has been another product that I’ve used for years. It’s an ultra-slim, retractable pencil for precise detailing and creating hair-like strokes.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara : Roller Lash not only lifts and super-curls, but this instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours and is easy to remove. Great for curling and lifting your lashes all day and night! This product has been a holy grail of mine for years.
Dior Lash Primer : This triple-action lash primer serum boosts lash volume, curls, and improves lash appearance. A game changer for the full lash look!
Sephora Waterproof Eyeliner : This long-wear eyeliner pencil is so creamy, it blends perfectly to achieve any look. I’ve been loving the colored eyeliners as a way to really make your eye color pop, and I love that this one goes on light but can be layered for a more dramatic look.
Makeup By Mario Ethereal Eyes Eyeshadow Palette : A palette that has quickly become a favorite for me! 12 shades varying in finish to create anything from a glowing every day look to a dramatic smokey eye. I really love the combination of the sueded mattes, natural metallics, and glossy shimmers to create the perfect look from one palette.
Charlotte Tilbury Darling Eyeshadow Palette : The perfect palette to create a sunset-inspired glowy look. Between the bronzed copper, peachy pink, rosy terracotta, and chocolate brown shades, this palette looks stunning on any eye color. Added bonus: it transitions so well from day to night!
Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Setting Powder : My favorite way to achieve an illuminated under-eye. This silky product sweeps on effortlessly to blur fine lines and imperfections.
Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Concealer Brush : I really love this brush for the unique angled shape that allows for flawless application and control.
NARS Light Reflecting Undereye Brightener : Another makeup-skincare hybrid formula that I love because it brightens the under-eye area with a hydrating, radiant finish. This brightener really melts into your skin and significantly brightens dark circles.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector : I can’t recommend this buttery, lightweight, full-coverage color corrector enough. It flawlessly conceals pigmentation and brightens the appearance of the under-eye area for a radiant, glowing look. It is a medium coverage but very buildable.
Dior Lip Glow Oil : If you know me, you know I love this product! It is perfectly hydrating without any stickiness. The formula of this product reacts with the lips as it is applied and it enhances the natural color of the lip.
Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum : This glossy balm pumps lips for a hydrating, shiny finish. I’m particularly loving the Plum Glow shade for fall.
Sephora Outrageous Plumping Lip Gloss : Another hydrating, plumping lip product that has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. This product contains sunflower seed oil, ginger root oil, and peppermint oil to naturally moisturize and plump the lips.
Haus Labs Le Monster Lip Crayon Vegan Lipstick and Lip Liner : I’ve been on the hunt for some clean products that I truly love and this one checks every box! It is moisturizing, creamy and naturally plumps. A must try in my opinion! Color: Matte Mauve
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer : This gloss gives the perfect shine and is super hydrating. Great for the upcoming holiday season!
Dior Rosy Glow Blush : My favorite product for a natural, rosy cheek! I love the natural glowy finish this product gives.
Merit Flush Balm Cream Blush : This has been one of the products I reach for over and over! This balm is light but buildable and blends so nicely. It’s creamy and gives off a glowy finish!
Merit Bronze Balm Sheer Sculpting Bronzer : I love this product for the natural-looking warmth and depth while being both lightweight and buildable. It has a super natural undertone, avoiding any hue of orange.
Sephora PRO Foundation Brush #56 : A great medium length, soft bristle brush that is really ideal for building coverage.
Rare Beauty Positive Light Silky Touch Highlighter : The perfect powder highlighter with a subtle but glowy finish.
One of my very favorite parts about this sale is the selection of gift sets! Many are exclusive to Sephora and feature products I have used and loved for years. I have to say, I think this year’s selection of gift sets is the best yet!
