Here are my top choices for foundation, concealer etc:
SKIN TINT DROPS:
Westman Atelier Vital Skincare Dewy Foundation Drops: I was very skeptical about these skin tint drops 1. because the price and 2. because I wasn’t sure if they even added any coverage. Turns out, they are worth every penny and give a light, skin perfecting coverage. If you like a “your skin but better” approach to foundation, these are for you.
Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation SPF 15: I like to try different foundations when I need to replenish and I am really enjoying this one in Shade 1.5N. I don’t wear foundation daily, but when I want full coverage, this is really nice. I love that it has a little SPF and it makes my skin feel glowy without being oily. *wearing in the above photo*
Dior Backstage Concealer: Love for blemishes or dark spots. I wear this in shade 2N. The brush is really nice too. You don’t need a lot. I think it would be good for under eyes too. It’s not cakey and stays on well. *wearing in the above photo*
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Finish Brightening Powder: This is a new find and I’m really enjoying it. It’s not drying and really does make my eyes look more awake.
CONTOUR / HIGHLIGHT / BLUSH
I’ve tried it all when it comes to contouring, so I’m excited to share the items I can’t live without. Also sharing a highlighter & a blush that I love for this time of year.
Makeup By Mario SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer: The easiest cream contour to blend, so this is great if you’re not confident in contouring. I have both light and medium dark and tend to use the light more in the winter. *wearing in the above photo*
Fenty Match Stix Contour Skinstick: My favorite contouring product to use around the lips.I use the shade “Amber” and it’s very cool toned. Again, this is pretty easy to use in small places, but not as easy to blend as the Makeup by Mario. I recommend for contouring smaller areas like nose, eyes and lips.
Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette in Universal. This quad does it all – it comes with a highlighter, blush, and bronzer so it’s great for travel or touch-ups on-the-go.
Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush if you love the Dior Backstage Rosy Glow (my all time favorite) you will love the Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush in shade “01 Silky Rose”. It’s a warmer pink tone, but still gives you that “doll” blush look. It’s so pretty on! *wearing in the above photo*
EYES / BROWS
This has become one of my favorite areas of the face to experiment when it comes to products. Here’s what I’m loving at the moment.
Artist Couture Nudes Mini Palette: If you’re looking for a versatile palette, this is my pick. I have several palettes but tend to reach for this the most. It has both matte and shimmery colors so you can really use it for day or night this season. It’s the mini size so it’s a good size to try out or toss in your makeup bag.
Lancome Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner: in 03 Chocolate. You know I loved the Chanel eyeliner before they discontinued it. This is the closest thing I’ve tried that compares. Highly recommend. *wearing in the above photo*
Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Precision Brow Pencil in Universal Dark Brown. This is my ride-or-die brow pencil. I’ve used for years and continue to repurchase. *wearing in the above photo*
Kosas Clear + Clean Lifting Brow Gel: This holds all day, I’m not even kidding. If you want a laminated look, you’ll love this.
Honestly, a lot of my skincare is either from my derm so I don’t buy a lot from Sephora. But here’s what I use.
Peach Out Acne Dots: I wear these at night when I feel a pimple coming. It significantly reduces the blemish overnight.
Summer Fridays Balm: I love this lip balm. It smells nice and isn’t sticky. My lips feel amazing when I use this!
Supergoop Glowscreen Sunscreen: This SPF gives your face that “post facial glow”. It also works as a primer, so if your foundation doesn’t have SPF, this is a good one to try.
Rare Beauty Prime + Set Mist: A facial mist is my most used product in my makeup bag. I love this one because the mister is fine (you don’t feel like you are drenching your face) and has Niacinamide which helps the appearance of skin. It’s great for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
The holidays are quickly approaching, so if you want to start crossing people off your list, here’s what I recommend.
Phlur ‘Missing Person’ Perfume: Obsessed with this scent and the branding of it.
Summer Fridays On Cloud Nine Minis Set: I love pretty much everything I’ve tried from this brand so I’m grabbing a few of these for my nail girl, mail lady, etc.
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Highlighter Wand Duo Set: Great stocking stuffer! CT never disappoints.
Sephora Favorites Mini Holiday Must Haves Set: A little bit of everything, including brands like Saie, Charlotte Tilbury and Summer Fridays.
