When it comes to my strategy for shopping the sale (yes, I have a strategy), I like to use it as a time to stock up on my go-to products and a time to try a few new things I’ve had my eye on for a better price. I know the pages on pages of endless items can be overwhelming, so I wanted to share my picks here. This is a super comprehensive list, broken down by category, of all of my favorite products (and a few I plan on trying).
Foundation / Concealer :
Nars Tinted Moisturizer – Lightest coverage of the three, has SPF 30.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Long-wear Foundation– Full Coverage
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – I wear shade 6.5
Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum – Medium / light coverage shade “Beige”
Hourglass Airbrush Concealer – I am OBSESSED with this concealer. It has officially replaced my Tarte Shape Tape if that tells you anything about how good it is.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – THE best for setting your under eyes. It’s totally worth the money, trust me.
Bronzer, Highlight, + Blush :
Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze + Glow – This is more of a contour (slightly cool toned) and comes with a highlight side which I love.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – Adds that natural glow from within look.
Nars Liquid Blush in Torrid – This blush has been my obsession over the past two months! It’s the most beautiful, lively shade that just looks like skin and gives you the best sun kissed, supermodel type glow. I know a lot of people get scared off by liquid blush, but just trust me on this one.
Setting Spray :
Urban Decay All Nighter Spray – This stuff really does lock your makeup in all day and is a total must for events (when they can presume of course).
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick – shade “Kim K.W” – My favorite nude/pink lip of all-time. I have an embarrassing number of these around the house.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner shades “Pillow Talk” + “Iconic Nude” – The perfect lip liner! These shades pretty much go with everything. Iconic Nude is more of a true nude with a brown undertone and Pillow Talk has a rose/pink undertone. Try the “Pillow Talk” set here.
Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment shade “She’s Confident” – The formula on these is amazing and creamy but long-lasting which I love!
Laneige Lip Mask – This mask is ultra hydrating and gives your lips the prettiest, slightly pink glow. I love to keep it on my nightstand and use it nightly.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick shade “Lychee”
Patrick Ta Major Glow Lip Shine shade “She’s Expensive” – such a fun gloss that adds a really wet look to your lips, very J.LO.
Tarte SEA Color Splash shades “Salt Lyfe” + “Sundaze” – I love this formula and these two shades are my go-to. One very natural (also looks great on blondes) and one bright and ultra fun for spring/summer. Sundaze is the perfect bright orange/red to give you that added mood boost.
Gucci Mascara L’Obscur – Pricey but totally worth it because it basically does the job of two mascaras. I have been using this for about a month straight and loving it.
CILS BOOSTER XL Mascara Primer – One of my top 5 beauty products ever. I SWEAR by this primer. It allows the mascara to really grab onto your lashes making them ultra long, full and more curled. It also conditions your lashes and helps them stay healthy.
Monseiur Big Mascara – My favorite mascara for lower lashes. It makes them look really pretty and fluffy without flaking or coming off during the day.
Better Than Sex Mascara – Another favorite mascara.
Better Than Sex Liner – The best liquid liner. I use this daily for my cat-eyes!
Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette – I reach for this a lot during spring and summer because it has the prettiest, warm shades! I also really love the formula.
Tartelette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette – A great, year round, everyday palette.
Hair + Body.
Olaplex No 3 – Great for repairing damaged or colored hair. My hair is feeling super healthy these days but I still use this and used it religiously when my hair was blonde.
Dyson Hair Styler – If you’re wanting to splurge now is the time when you can get a good % off!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo – GREAT for really cleaning your hair and scalp of any product residue.
Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast – Adds a ton of volume to your hair.
Kérastase Nutritive Blow-Dry Primer Heat Protectant – I apply this to my hair, focusing mostly on the mid and ends. I use it every time I wash my hair as a heat protectant.
Tan Luxe Drops shade “Medium / Dark” – I love these on days when I want to stay hydrated but still add color. I also use these on my face (even the body ones are fine on my face!).
Marc Jacobs Daisy Collection Perfume – Ok Daisy is a classic, I know, BUT I have recently been obsessed with Daisy Love which is in the Marc Jacobs Petals collection. It is the perfect mix of sweet and fresh, reminiscent of another fave perfume of mine Flower Bomb.
What’s In My Cart.
HUDA Pastel Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette shade “Lilac Obsessions” – SO excited to try this palette.
Patrick Ta Brow Wax – This looks legit. I love Patrick Ta, so I’m excited to try keep my brows in place.
Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick – I’ve heard amazing things about this lipstick collection. I ordered shades “102 Lorna Dune” and “101 Margaret Candleflame”
HUM Nutrition Private Party – Supports against UTIs
