SEPHORA FAVORITES

The Sephora Spring Insider Sale is going on now and I have created a list of my favorites here for you! My skin type is normal to dry and I tend to lean towards hydrating and anti-aging products. 

My makeup favorites will be added down below later this week. 

MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

My Morning Skincare Routine makes sure I’m refreshed and ready to take on the day! I have been using most of these products for over 9 months now, and I really love how they work together to help my skin flourish! Here’s my process:

  1. I cleanse my face with the Kate Sommerville Exfolikate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash and I love that it gently exfoliates my face while I’m washing my face. 
  2. My favorite serum is the Sunday Riley Good Genes All In One Lactic Acid Treatment. It helps with the texture of my skin and keeps it smooth and looking youthful.  
  3. My favorite eye cream that makes my eyes feel super hydrated, is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Cream.
  4. My day and night moisturizer are the same. I love using a thicker moisturizer because I have normal to dry skin so I need to have a moisturizer that gives me that extra hydration! My favorite lately is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Moisturizer.
  5. I recently added sunscreen into my regime. I know I know, spare me the lecture because I should have been wearing sunscreen this entire time! My favorite as of late has been the Supergoop Daily Dose Vitamin C + SPF 40.


NIGHT TIME SKINCARE ROUTINE

My Night Time Skincare is so important to me because I’m usually cleaning off my makeup from the day. I double cleanse, and so here’s my quick process:

  1. I remove my makeup with the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Balm. A little bit goes a long way and I emulsify the product in my hands and then remove my makeup with it. It works wonders! I use a muslin cloth to wipe away the balm and my makeup. 
  2. I cleanse my face with the Kate Sommerville Exfolikate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash and I love that it gently exfoliates my face while I’m washing my face. 
  3. I use the Sunday Riley Luna Night Oil. This gives my face the retinol it needs and it’s been my tried and true retinol to use!
  4. My day and night moisturizer are the same. I love using a thicker moisturizer because I have normal to dry skin so I need to have a moisturizer that gives me that extra hydration! My favorite lately is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Moisturizer.
  5. I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask when going to bed to make sure I keep my lips nice and hydrated. As I mentioned in my Morning Skincare Routine, I use this all the time and even carry a small one in my purse. It’s THAT GOOD!


EVERYDAY MAKEUP FAVORITES

My Everyday Makeup routine consists of a more natural makeup look. Here’s my favorite products I love to use on a daily basis:

PRIMER– I use two primers for my face daily. The Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Oil Free Primer is the one I use all over my face. I love that it’s silicone based, and just glides on my skin very smoothly. It makes for a super  flawless makeup application. 

The Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Primer is one I use in areas that I have enlarged pores, so on the sides and top of my nose and in between my eyebrows. It really does work in helping to minimize the appearance of my pores. 

CORRECTOR– I use the Bobbi Brown Under Eye Corrector in Dark Peach. I have dark circles under my eyes, so this does an amazing job at correcting my dark circles and making me look more youthful. 

UNDER EYE CONCEALER– I have used the  Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Caramel for years and I love it! This concealer is full coverage and does not crease or set into the fine lines under my eyes. 

FOUNDATION– I use the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. This foundation is a medium coverage foundation and works well for my normal to dry skin. It is buildable and is supposed to last up to 16 hours. I never have my makeup on for that long, but the 6-8 hours I do have it on, it does stay without separating and getting really oily. 

EYESHADOW PRIMERNars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base in Original. This lightweight primer makes my eyeshadow have that vibrant pop and last all day! 

MASCARA PRIMER– The Lancome Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Primer is a cult favorite and for good reason! When I apply this before my mascara, it looks like I have false eyelashes on. I love it!

MASCARA– My favorite mascara for years has been the Lancome Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara. My lashes look not only full of volume but also appear longer as well. 

EYESHADOWStila’s Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow are easy eyeshadows to apply and that look gorgeous on! I love the shade Kitten. I also love the Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette for a day to night time look. The great thing about these options is that they fit in my purse in case I need a midday touch up! 

BLUSH– If you haven’t noticed by now, my favorite makeup brand to wear is hands down Nars. I love the Nars Blush in Deep Throat. It works perfectly with my skin tone. Another good Nars favorite of mine is the shade Orgasm. 

MY FAVORITE PINK LIPSTICK-If I’m wearing a pink lipstick, more than likely I’m wearing this lipstick! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! The  Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in It’s Happening is gorgeous on all skin tones and it has such a long wearability.
