CALLING ALL MAKEUP LOVERS!!! I’ve looked forward to Sephora sales for YEARS now. Sephora runs sitewide sales twice a year and TODAY is the start of their spring sale! If you’re a makeup lover you know it rarely goes on sale, so I always use this to stock up on repurchases or new makeup I’ve been eyeing. I have a LOT to share so I’m breaking this topic into THREE posts, and I’m kicking it off today by sharing My Top Makeup Recommendations. I’ll be sharing my non-makeup recommendations + my personal wishlist in separate posts over the weekend – so stay tuned for those! I tried to narrow these down to my most loved products that can be used on any skin types. If you want to see other beauty related products I recommend, you can check out those blog posts HERE! *Disclaimer – I know times are tough for many of us. I never want what I share to make you feel pressured, so please don‘t feel like you need any of these items. I just wanted to share this list for any of you that still plan on shopping the sale.

  • My Top 12 Makeup recommendations

    #1 Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base || I purchased this mascara primer thanks to the recommendation of Courtney Shields (LASH GOALS), and I fell in love. This is a 2-in-1 product because it acts as a primer but can also be used as an overnight conditioning mask. I apply it as my first layer of mascara, and it adds a ton of length AND volume to my lashes. || regularly $26.50 || SHOP IT HERE

    #2 Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick || I’ve been ranting and raving about this foundation for awhile now, so I’ll try not to be redundant. This is all-around my FAVORITE foundation – best finish, best coverage, best longevity. I just love it SO MUCH, and the sale is the perfect time to snag it! || regularly $46 || SHOP IT HERE

    #3 Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick – Shade KIM KW || If you’re like me and love a light pinky-nude lipstick, this is the BEST I’ve ever used. It’s the best formula, and you can easily darken it with a deeper lip liner! || regularly $34 || SHOP IT HERE

    #4 Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter – Shade Champagne Pop || I mentioned this in a recent blog post about my favorite products for the perfect summer glow. This highlighter has pretty peachy tones, and the formula is bomb! A little goes a long way, so it’ll last you forever! || regularly $38 || SHOP IT HERE

    #5 Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector || Aging has not done my under-eye circles any good, but this brightening color corrector is MAGIC and erases any signs of darkness. It’s a thicker consistency, and I apply it right before I apply my concealer. It brightens up the under-eye beautifully! || regularly $32 || SHOP IT HERE

    #6 MUFE Artist Color Pencil – Shade Anywhere Caffeine || I love trying different lipsticks and lip liners, but I always seem to come back to this one. It’s the perfect shade to match with my full range of nude lipsticks! || regularly $18 || SHOP IT HERE

    #7 Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Sculpting Concealer || My #1 favorite concealer. The coverage is extremely similar to my other most-loved concealer (Tarte Shape Tape), but this one is a little more moisturizing and easier to blend! I wear the shade Almond. || regularly $29 || SHOP IT HERE

    #8 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer – Shade Luminous Bronze Light || This is a PRICEY bronzer, so this sale is the perfect time to grab it! Hourglass powder formulas are unmatched – they’re finely milled and blend like a dream. This bronzer adds the perfect warmth to the skin, and it also has a luminous finish so it won’t look too heavy. || regularly $52 || SHOP IT HERE

    #9 Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer || My FAVORITE product to recommend to people with both dry AND oily skin. It adds hydration AND helps your makeup stay put all. day. long. || regularly $30 || SHOP IT HERE

    #10 Farsali Rose Gold 24K Skin Mist || Okay I’m hammering this one home. Just know – it is THE BEST setting spray if you’re looking for a nice yet subtle dew! || regularly $39 || SHOP IT HERE

    #11 Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder || This is another pricey product that I think is definitely worth the money – especially if you can get it on sale! It’s a great loose powder for those of you with dry or combo skin because it sets your liquid products without making your skin feel/look dry! || regularly $46 || SHOP IT HERE

    #12 Natasha Denona Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette || I don’t talk about eyeshadow regularly because I don’t wear it as much as I used to. BUT I do LOVE this mini palette! It’s a one-and-done product. It has a crease shade, an outer corner shade, a couple of lid shades, AND an inner corner highlight shade. The formula of the Natasha Denona shadows are INCREDIBLE, and this palette is SO worth it! || regularly $25 || SHOP IT HERE
