Sephora Haul

Sephora had their 15% off sale last week.  I went in to stock up on some old favorites.  Instead I left with a bag full of new faves.

I’m obsessed with having dark thick eyebrows and needed to replace my eyebrow pencil and brow gel.  I like to use the pencil when going out for a darker more dramatic look and I use the gel for my everyday look.  I tried out the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products for the first time and loved them.

 

Brow Pen ($21) – this is my new favorite as it gives you a very defined look and is easy to use

 

Tinted Brow Gel ($22) – this fills in your brows for a natural but full look

 

I fell in love with the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighting Powder ($29).  It will look great this summer with a tan.

Speaking of a tan, I found a great sunless face tanner.  Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care Alpha Beta Grow Pads ($35) gives your face a nice tan while improving the texture of your skin with alpha and beta hydroxy acids.  The girl at Sephora said to use them every other night after washing your face and to finish with your normal skin care routine.

Being that I love a long lasting lipstick I was excited to find the Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer ($20).  If you apply this over your lipstick it will last all day – even through eating and drinking.

I love make-up and finding new products.  I think these will be great additions to my make-up routine.  I hope you guys were able to score some great products from this sale as well.  I would love to hear what you got too.  XOXO Michelle

The Spring/Summer Smokey Eye

This is the spring/summer version of the smokey eye.  I love these colors and think this is such a fresh and modern look.  To achieve this look you use the “Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow” palette below that you can find at Sephora ($49).

Follow these steps to get the spring/summer smokey eye that is pictured above:

  1. Sweep the color “Peaches & Cream” from the palette all over the lid
  2. Put “Just Peachy” in the crease and also blend it under the eye
  3. Add “Summer Yum” in the crease and also blend it under the eye
  4. Put “Champagne” in the corners and center of the eye lid
  5. Softly add a little “Summer Yum” in the outside corners of the eye
  6. Blend all of these together

For daytime with this eye look, I would use the below “Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in #6 Rose Nocturne” from Sephora ($34).

For a nighttime look I would add a subtle cat eye with Stila “Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner” (Sephora $22) and a darker lipstick like “Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick #10 Boyish Rose” that you can also find at Sephora ($34).

     

 

I think the IT Cosmetics “Your Most Beautiful You” palette ($38) would work great with this look.

I’m so excited to start wearing this look and think it will look great with all the new spring fashions.  XOXO Michelle
