it’s that time of year! the sephora savings event has begun and it’s my favorite time to replenish my fave makeup / beauty / hair products OR try out some new things that have been on my wishlist!

there is not a day that goes by where i don't use these bronzing drops! i mix one pump of these in with a tinted SPF to give my skin a dewy bronzed glow. i love that they also have peptides and antioxidants in them so you are hydrating your skin and helping with anti-aging all at the same time! these are perfect for no makeup days when you want just a little bit of coverage and glow!

one of my all time favorite retinol products. i love this retinol because it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. you can use it morning and night and i've seen such incredible results - from the overall texture of my skin, to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles...having a good retinol in your routine is SO crucial for the health of your skin and this one definitely gets my stamp of approval!

i use this lip balm every morning and every night! it is SO hydrating and makes my lips feel super smooth. think of it like skincare for your lips, that also feels so luxurious! it's not sticky at all and i think it's really helped my lips look more plump over time!

shop now 

 

i am not exaggerating when i say this is probably my favorite face mask i have EVER used. it has an instant cooling effect when you put it on (i keep mine in the fridge to level up) so it makes your face look more sculpted, lifted, and glowy! after ONE use! also helps to minimize the appearance of pores and has been my go-to mask before any big event or photoshoot!

shop now 

 

this lip treatment with hyaluronic acid is a must-have in your lip skincare routine! it immediately and visibly plumps, defines, and enhances your natural lip color while restoring the moisture barrier for hydrated, younger-looking lips. literally you can feel and see a difference after one use, but you will notice over time your lips really look so much more plump and youthful! obsessed with this stuff.

i started using this concealer a few months ago when my insomnia was SO BAD in my third trimester. so i had the darkest circles under my eyes and needed something with full coverage, that could really brighten! this concealer makes me look SO awake but still looks very natural! it does not crease underneath your eyes and really lasts all day! i wear this in the shade marshmallow!

shop now 

 

i've raved about this highlight palette a million times but just in case you still need convincing...it is hands down my favorite highlight palette i've ever purchased. it's what i'm wearing in these photos (and honestly anytime i have makeup on haha) and anytime someone says ~~omg your skin is glowing~~...the secret is this highlighter! it has 4 shades on it and i use + love all 4 shades. makes your skin so glowy and ~~lit from within~~ without being glittery!

shop now 

 

my favorite cream blush lately! it's dewy and glowy and i love this shade of pink. the perfect little pop!

shop now 

 

this is a newer product in my makeup routine but i LOVE this brow pencil! i've tried out a ton of brow pencils i didn't love and ended up returning but this is for sure one i'll keep in my routine and continue to rebuy. i love how precise you can be with this pencil and the like gel-ish texture to it! it looks really natural but adds fullness to your brows all at the same time!

shop now 

 

my favorite foundation brush and you can get it 30% off during the sale! i love this brush because the bristles are really densely packed so the brush isn't absorbing all of the foundation - it's going directly onto your skin meaning you can use less product. it blends your foundation in seamlessly without leaving any weird streaks or lines behind!

shop now 

 

i've been wearing / sharing this lip gloss for years now. the color 'hot chocolit' is so beautiful for fall! the perfect brown without being too dark. this gloss is plumping and hydrating and one i own in a few shades because i love it so much!

shop now 

 

i probably sound like a broken record with my obsession with this mascara but it truly is like lash extensions in a tube! i stopped getting lash extensions about 3 months ago and this mascara still makes my lashes (which are not long lol) look SO LONG. i also love this mascara because it's easy to wash off at night! it doesn't smear all over your face but it just comes right off!

i've been using this shampoo and conditioner for about 4 months now and i am OBSESSED. if you've been following me for a while you probably know i am a creature of habit when it comes to hair products and rarely branch out. but as soon as i tried vegamour it became a regular in my hair routine. first of all it smells AMAZING. but i also love that it really helps to promote hair health and hair growth! my hair has truly never felt healthier and i think it's in large part thanks to this shampoo & conditioner!

shop now 

 

i've been using this spray for over a year now and it honestly blows my mind every time i use it. you only need to use it like every 4-5 washes because it lasts but everytime i use it my hair feels SO smooth and perfectly straight! i don't even use a curling iron or flat iron on my hair after blow drying it when i use this spray because it really gets rid of all frizz and makes it SO soft! make sure you read the instructions on how to properly use it in order to get the max effects!

shop now 

 

i just started using this heat protection mist a month or two ago - i love that it only protects my hair from eat (ie from my curling iron) but i've notice it also helps my hair to hold the curl better! i spray this on my hair when it's dry, before using a flat iron or curling iron on it! provides heat protection, helps eliminate frizz, and helps create a longer hold!

shop now 

 

the airwrap needs zero explanation!!! game CHANGER when it comes to drying and styling your hair and you can get it up to 20% off during the sale! i've had mine for years and still use it ALL THE TIME and get compliments on my hair every time i use it!

shop now 

 

i use this hair mask once a week or every two weeks and it's been SO helpful in keeping my hair healthy and strengthening it! it's extremely hydrating, prevents, breakage, restores hair elasticity and has been super helpful in making my hair long! if you have dry or damaged hair or if you're trying to restore it back to health or grow your hair out...definitely buy this mask!

shop now 

 

thanks for reading!! let me know what you’re buying from the sale or if there’s any must-haves i need to try out!
