Because my list isn’t super long this time, I broke this post into categories so that if you are only looking for a certain product rec, you don’t have to read the whole post. So here we go!
This list of foundation recs has definitely grown over the years. Because my skin has changed so much I’ve tried out different options. As well as my style of applying foundation + my lifestyle. You can apply all of these with either a brush, beauty sponge or your fingers. The It Cosmetics one is deff more full coverage if that is something you are looking for.
Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation [Shade: Paloma ST9]
It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50+ [Shade: Medium]
Kosas Glow I.V. Vitamin-Infused Skin Illuminating Enhancer [Shade: Radiate]
✨ EYESHADOW PALETTES✨
These two have been my go two for a while now as well. I go back and forth between them, depending on the look I’m trying to achieve. No matter where I go, I always take them both with me. I usually use both in conjunction with each other too. But it really comes down to, I take them both because between the two I have everything I want and need.
✨ MASCARA + PRIMER ✨
I use all of these products together. I love layering mascaras + using different brushes because it really enhances the lashes. This primer works really well. Then I’ll use the surfer curl one + then finally the Ilia one. I love the brush on the Ilia one because one side teases your lashes then the other sides gets the clumps out + separates your lashes. Then I add the Ilia Fullest Volumizing one as a last step to really make them pop. A great combo if you ask me. All of tarte’s mascaras are amazing, the Surfer Curler is my fave.
✨ CONCEALER ✨
This one has been my go to for years now because it is super hydrating, smooth, doesn’t cake + blends easily. What more can we ask for ha! Plus it comes in a bunch of shades.
✨ SETTING POWDER + SPRAY ✨
I love setting powder because I feel like it really seals my make up + makes it stay put. Plus as I apply it I feel like it blends everything together for a flawless finish. This has been my go to for under eyes. Although it was made for the whole face as well so you can just it for both. For my face I really love the Kosas one because its Talc Free, good coverage + has a natural finish.
Kosas Cloud Set Baked Setting & Smoothing Talc-Free Vegan Powder– [Shade: Pillowy]
This one is great because its a multipurpose product. First I use it to spray my face whenever I need a little extra hydration before and/or after my makeup application. But I also use it to make my eyeshadow pop. Plus its clean with great ingredients for the skin + comes in two sizes. I take mine everywhere.
✨ BLUSH ✨
You can never have enough blush. Thats my opinion + I’m sticking to it ha! Because of that I have a lot of faves ha! Instead of looking like I have a lot of blush on I now want the natural flush/sun kissed flush. [If that makes any sense ha!]
Lawless Make Me Blush Talc-Free Velvet Blush – [Shade: Sakura // Might try Daisy Pink]
HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Bio-Radiant Gel-Powder Highlighter with Fermented Arnica – [Shade: Rose Quartz]
Dior Rosy Glow Blush [Shade: Pink]
✨ BRONZER ✨
Another Lawless product I’ve been using for over a year now. I haven’t switch it up or even wanted to try something new because I love it that much. It’s the first one I found that doesn’t look too muddy, or chalky, grey or orange on me. I also love it because it easy to blend + has a flawless finish. Its magic ha! I use it for both contour + bronzer. Sometimes I even use as eyeshadow.
Lawless Summer Skin Velvet Matte Bronzer[ Shade: Golden Hour]
✨ HIGHLIGHTER ✨
I love me some highlighter! Its my favorite step in my make up routine. These three highlighters have been my favorites + go to’s for a while. They all have something different to them. I go between them because depending on the look I’m trying to achieve, each one helps certain looks. The Ilia highlighter are more a subtle, neutral glow whereas the Benefit one is more of the blinding highlighter.
Ilia DayLite Highlighter Powder– [Shade: Decades- soft gold]
MERIT Day Glow Dewy Highlighting Balm – [Shade: Cava]
✨ LIP PRODCUTS ✨
I am not really a lipstick wearing girl because I drink so much water that it always comes off on the straw + I can’t stand that ha! So, instead I focus on lip care products or lip glosses. I have + love all of these. The Tatcha + Lawless products are my favorite because they work really well + give a lip gloss shine without being sticky. I use the REFY lip scrub first because it really exfoliates the lips + leaves a nice canvas for my lip products.
Lawless Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss – [Shades: Rosy Outlook + Daisy Pink]
LAWLESS Forget The Filler Overnight Lip Plumping Mask – [Shade: Sweet Dreams]
TOM FORD Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss – [Shade: Crystalline]
Dior Lip Glow Oil – [Shade: Pink]
✨ HAIR PRODCUTS ✨
I am definitely more a beauty + skin care girl than a hair girl. However, these two products are my go to’s + I haven’t strayed once! I have used this dry shampoo for years! It is amazing because it really does clean your hair, give the volume we all want + smells amazing! it is also vegan + cruelty free. As for the hair ties, I love them. They don’t crease my hair as much + don’t pull my hair out.
✨ SKIN CARE ✨
To be honest, a lot of my skin care is not available from Sephora + that is what I used most of the time. BUT if you are wanting to shop the sale + rack up your points, I still stand by these products + recommend them.
✨ FACE CLEANSERS ✨
Again, keeping it simple. Both of these cleansers are great + I go back + forth between them depending on my skins needs. The Origins one REALLY deep cleans your skin! It also gets make up off too. The Murad cleanser is great if you have acne. I found this because I had horrible cystic acne + this whole line really improved it!
✨ FACE EXFOLIATORS ✨
You really can’t go wrong with either of these exfoliators because they both work great. The Wishful one is awesome because you can literally feel the dead skin + stuff come off. Both leave your skin feeling super clean + soft.
✨ FACE SERUMS + OILS ✨
There are so many serums + oils out today that its hard to figure out which one to use and which one not to. I have tired my fair share + these are my favorites. I use the Sleeping night oil only a few nights a week because I don’t want to start peeling + get my skin irritated. Then when my skin is breaking out I use the UFO one because that really helps clear up my skin! I love the Merit serum because it is a multi use product. One use is an actual serum. It hydrates the skin + gives a great healthy glow! Then the other way I use it is when I use my gua sha so it just glides over my skin.
✨ MOSITURIZERS ✨
If you are in the market for a moisturizer, any of these are awesome. I try to keep a couple on hand that cater to different concerns so that when my skin does need a little extra something, I have it. The Farmacy one I use every day. It is light, hydrating + didn’t make me break out. I use the Caudalie when I’m super dry and at night because its on the thicker side so it really hydrate my skin. The Tatcha one is another good one for everyday use. The only reason I don’t use it everyday is because its so expensive.
✨ FACE + EYE MASKS ✨
Last but not least, face + eye masks. Because my skin is complex, I am pretty picky when it comes to what masks I put on my face. These three have made the cut. I try to keep it simple because that is what my skin likes best ha!
Again, keeping it simple. When I feel I need some extra hydration I use the Origins drink up mask because it does what it says. When I feel that my skin needs a little extra cleaning I use the Charcoal mask. They both work great + I don’t break out or anything like that from them.
I am a firm believer that good make up application is because of the tools you use. Yes you need skill, but if you have good tools + mix that with your skill, you’re gonna be unstoppable ha! I have other brushes but these are my favorites from Sephora.
Because I splurge on brushes I want to take care of them. I clean them with a brush cleaning mat + liquid soap mentioned below. I have used them for years. I’ve tried others but always go back to these two.
✨ BRUSHES + TOOLS ✨
Wow if you are still with me after all that you are a rock star!! Because this Sephora sale picks post turned out WAY LONGER than I thought but I wanted to be thorough + a good resource for you.
