Sephora Sale Picks
I approach every sale with a strategy or it overwhelms me. I use these Sephora sales as a time to stock up on my tride & true products that I KNOW I will be reordering the second I run out anyways (or even before so I don’t have to go without out) & as a time to try out a few new things that I’ve been eyeing. I’m rounding up all of my Sephora sale picks broken down by category for you all to make it as easy to shop the sale as possible!
I’m starting with makeup in Sephora sale picks because I think this is my favorite category of new things to try. I love playing around with makeup because you know almost instantly, or at least within a day, if you like a product or not unlike skincare or haircare.
What I use
It Cosmetics CC Cream: I’ve been using this foundation as a more full coverage foundation. It’s not too heavy for a full coverage foundation in my opinion. I love that it has SPF 50 built in! I wear shade medium tan.
Dior Airflash Foundation: I’ve come back to this foundation time & time again. I always have it on hand. It’s the foundation I wore for my wedding & is super buildable, but doesn’t look cakey. You apply this by shaking it up & then spraying it onto a beauty blender or a foundation brush & then putting it on y our skin. I wear color 300 Neutral.
Becca Under Eye: This is an under eye cream for color correcting. It’s amazing! It actually color corrects dark under eye circlers instead of just covering them up. A little goes a long way! I wear the light to medium shade.
Bye Bye Undereye: This It Cosmetics concealer is the one I’ve been reaching for when I do wear concealer, which isn’t too often. I have shade 21.5 Medium Nude.
Magic Away: I use this concealer if I have a stubborn blemish or something I need to cover up. I wear shade 5!
Laura Mercier Setting Powder: This translucent setting powder is my favorite go to. It works great all over your face + works for your under your eyes, too.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Powder: This is another setting powder that I love. It’s pricey, but it works so well. I wear shade medium. This is really great for the under eye area!
UD Setting Spray: This is my absolute favorite! I use the de-slick one to help with any oil. It helps all of your makeup stay on all day & helps set it in place.
UD Beached Bronzer: I’ve used this bronzer for over a year & I love it. I use the color sunkissed & think it gives such a natural bronze!
Hourglass Bronzer: This was my go to bronzer for so long & I still love it. It gives a beautiful summer glow! I wear shade Luminous bronze light.
Kilawatt Freestyle Highlight Duo: This Fenty beauty duo is SO good. I love that you are getting two highlights in one. It’s great for when your skin tone is a little less/more tan or for different parts of your face. I get the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby shades.
Nars Blush: I’ve used this blush in several shades for years. Orgasm is my go to shade, but I also love Deep Throat for summer. Sex appeal looks like such a beautiful shade, too.
Cheek to Cheek: I love this Charlotte Tilbury blush. It’s so natural & compliments so many skin tones. I use the shade pillow talk.
UD Eyeshade Primer Potion: This is the only eyeshadow primer I’ve used for years. It works so great to keep your shadow on & to prevent you getting mascara on the top of your eyelid. I get the anti aging one.
Naked Reloaded: I LOVE this palette by Urban Decay. I can use all of the colors in it & I can do all of my eye makeup with just this palette. It’s so good.
Tartelette in Bloom: I’ve shared this palette a few times including in this everyday eyeshadow tutorial. It’s such a great everyday palette! You’ll use all of the colors in it, it’s buildable from day to night, & you can do your full eye make up with just this one palette.
Too Faced Natural Eyes: This is the palette I used on my wedding day. It’s such a great go to palette & you can build it to create a really beautiful natural look. I use all of the colors in it & still love it three years later!
Tattoo Eyeliner: I haven’t been wearing actual eyeliner lately (I’ve been doing shadows instead for a more subtle, natural look), but when I do wear it, this is my go to. It stays on so well & is so easy to apply!
Base Mascara Primer: I use this Givenchy mascara primer & it works so well. I like to do two coats. It makes your lashes longer & thicker + your mascara just goes on so much better.
Legendary Lashes Volume Mascara: I’ve been using this Charlotte Tilbury mascara & really like it! It stays on well & the applicator is great
Monsieur Big Mascara: I used this mascara for months & months. I still love it! It’s great for big, voluminous lashes.
Sea Color Splash: I love this Tarte lipstick so much. It’s by far my most used one right now! It’s hydrating & stays on really well. I have the shades: set sail, salt lyfe, & colada.
Vice Lipstick: This UD lipstick is one I’ve gone back to for so long. The color backtalk is my favorite. It’s a beautiful mauvey-nude.
What I want to try
Seamless Finish Foundation Stick: I ordered this try & am so excited because I’ve heard such awesome things! I got the shade beige & fingers crossed it’s the right one.
Cali Contour Kit: I’ve really wanted to try a contour kit & this Smashbox one is supposed to be amazing. Comes with everything you need for a perfectly bronzed & highlighted look.
Tarte Blush: I’ve heard such great things about this blush. It is supposed to last for 12 hours! I’m eyeing the color risque.
Nude Drama Palette: I’ve been eyeing this palette since I saw it. I love Bobbi Brown & think this palette looks so so beautiful.
Better Than Sex Mascara: I’ve heard the best things about this mascara & it was a winner of the Allure 2019 award, so I ordered it to try.

Retinol: This is my go to retinol because it is a clean brand. It works so well & you know its a good, pure retinol product because of the yellow color of it!
Protini Moisturizer: I use this each day as a part of my morning skincare routine. It’s light, but helps your skin feel so hydrated.

Blow Dryer: This is the updated version of the T3 blowdryer I have. It has an auto-sensor that pauses when you set it down, which I think is the best feature ever.
Straighter: I’ve used this straightner for as long as I can remember. It’s great & I love that you can adjust the heat on it.
Interchangeable Curling Iron: This is the curling iron I’ve used for years. You can switch out the barrels & also can get a wand attachment. I use the 1 inch & the 1.25 inch. You can control the heat on this, too.
Round Brush: I use the 3 inch version of this round brush when I blow dry my hair to get volume at the roots. It works so well! It’s also great to get more volume on day two or three hair.
Dry Vent Brush: I use this brush day to day & when I blow dry the ends of my hair. The openness of it helps you dry your hair faster.
YSL Mon Paris: This is my go to perfume. It’s such a beautiful scent & I get stopped by people asking what I’m wearing all the time. I always have an extra bottle of this on hand!
Body Oil Polish: I love this coco rose body polish to exfoliate because it leaves your skin feeling SO soft. It smells amazing & is easy to use.
St Tropez Self Tanner: I go back to this tanning mousse time & time again. It’s such a beautiful color & doesn’t smell horrible like so many do.

Drunk Elephant Body Lotion: I love all things Drunk Elephant, so I definitely want to try this body lotion!
A few other Sephora sale picks include tools, my favorite pillowcase, & more.
What I use
Slip Silk Pillowcase: Charles & I both have these on our pillows & they are amazing. They feel so luxurious, help prevent hair damage, helps with aging, & ensures your products don’t just soak into your pillow + pillowcase. They come in several colors & both regular + king sizes.
Jade Roller: I love a good face roller to help me depuff in the mornings. I keep it in the fridge & it feels so good to use!
Nurse Jaime Massaging Face Roller: I love to use this face roller. I prefer using it at night to help sort of sculpt & tone up your face.
