Hey everyone! Happy back to school season. So upset that the summer is winding down and coming to a close. However, I love fall and I am so excited for football, sweaters, everything pumpkin, and boots! I was born in October so clearly fall is one of my favorite seasons. This morning I went to my local Sephora because I wanted to update my makeup and my look! I am known to wear a tiny bit of makeup so I wanted to change my look. I will be starting my big girl job in about a month so I felt like it was time to step up my makeup game. The woman (Nancy) who helped me update my makeup wardrobe, as you can say, was fantastic! I wish I could stick Nancy in my pocket and have her do my makeup every morning. A GIRL CAN DREAM. Anyways, here are the new pieces I added to my makeup collection.
First, I purchased the Naked Urban Decay Basics eye shadow. This product is absolutely amazing and I recommend it! I love the natural looking colors because like I said before, I am not a huge makeup person! The natural colors give it a simple yet put together look. http://www.sephora.com/naked-basics-palette-P376213?skuId=1458157
Next, I purchased the Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in the Color color! This product is amazing and it adds a pop of color to your lips! Still not a huge lipstick fan so this lip stain is perfect and it lasts for hours! http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=SEPHORA%20COLLECTION%20Rouge%20Infusion%20Lip%20Stain%20P384875&skuId=1558766&productId=P384875&_requestid=50121
Next, I purchased Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. I used to use a pencil eyeliner in brown/black color and I still plan to use that on days I don’t want to go all out with my makeup. However, Nancy at Sephora, recommended this Bobbi Brown product to me. She gave me the Violet Ink color because it brings out my green eyes. Trust me, at first when I saw the purple color I screamed but I let her put it on me and honestly you would never guess there is purple. She just uses a brush and puts a little bit of it on the top part of my upper eyelashes. It makes my eyes pop! http://www.sephora.com/long-wear-gel-eyeliner-P270539?skuId=1287424
I purchased the Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse BB Beauty Balm. This foundation (not sure what it is) goes on your skin first and it makes your skin so smooth without feeling cakey. It has SPH 25 which is great and it uses Hyaluronic Water Bead Technology. Basically that means super relaxing and cooling moisturizer on your face! http://www.sephora.com/water-fuse-beauty-balm-spf-25-pa-P285402?skuId=1327923
Next for the powder. Nancy brought the Laura Mercier Minneral Pressed Powder. This powder is very simple and it is perfect to put right on top of the Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=laura%20mercier%20mineral%20pressed%20powder&skuId=1179191&productId=P244913&_requestid=51324
Finally to contour, Nancy gave me the Becca Lowlight Sculpting Perfector. I have never used a contour product before and now I am glad I do! This makes my cheek bones pop and makes me look older. I know you may not want to look older but people told me many times I look like I’m 15 (even though I’m 21). This just is an amazing product and it really makes you look more mature. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=BECCA%20Lowlight%20Sculpting%20Perfector™%20P387827&skuId=1616895&productId=P387827&_requestid=51406
To finish off the contour, I purchased the Nars The Multiple makeup stick. You simply put this on your cheek bones, chin area, and forehead and just simply blend together. It brings the whole finished makeup look together! AMAZING product that I highly recommend. http://www.sephora.com/the-multiple-P2866?skuId=222117
That is all ladies! I purchased all new Sephora makeup brushes that Nancy used to put on all my makeup. It is important to spend money on makeup brushes because the better one’s last longer and apply the makeup on your face much better! Now that my makeup bag is literally ten pounds heavier, I am happy to say I had a successful Sephora Makeup Haul.
