Holiday sales have begun and that includes the Sephora Holiday Savings Sale! It doesn't cost you ANYTHING to be a beauty insider - you just give them your phone number and start earning points when you make a purchase! They have sales throughout the year, they make great holiday gifts and they are always getting in new items so don't miss out! I am a VIB and most people I know are too so that sale starts TODAY! I divided everything into categories as far as my recommendations go for hair, makeup, skincare & miscellaneous.
I have been working very hard to nurse my hair back to health since quarantine started. I have been bleaching and highlighting my hair since I was in 9th grade and it definitely needs some extra LOVE. I started doing hair masks, using less heat and leaving coconut oil in my hair & letting it air dry. Of course, being blonde is high maintenance, but that is what I get! It is expensive to be blonde, but you also have to take care of you hair! I absolutely LOVE the hair masks and these products. Yes, I use ALL of these, not every day of course, but they all do different things. The hair masks, moroccan oil, leave in conditioner and heat protectant have been key in getting my hair healthy again. I HIGHLY recommend those products for anyone with color-treated hair, not just blondes! I talk more in depth about each product on Instagram, so make sure you are following me there!
From doing shows, pageants and now blogging, I have tried so many beauty products. I have to say I am very picky! These are products I am currently using. I have switched foundation multiple times and still love others for various reasons - IT Cosmetics CC Cream - a lighter foundation, Estee Lauder Double Wear - FULL coverage, but I thought it might be breaking me out so I am taking a break to see. So my most recent foundation is BORN THIS WAY - it is oil free, very hydrating and it can be medium OR full coverage depending on how many pumps you do! I am shade Vanilla! The mascara primer, Laneige lip mask (WHERE HAVE I BEEN?!) & all of these eyeshadow palettes are SO good. As far as concealer goes, I am a HUGE shape-tape fan which isn't changing, but if you are looking for a more natural look, the BORN THIS WAY concealer by Too Faced is a great alternative - especially if you have dry under-eyes! I talk in depth about each product on my Instagram stories, also saved to my highlights so make sure you are following me there!
Y'all know I love and use my TULA products regularly, but I do have some products from Sephora I use and rotate on. The Drunk Elephant Vitamin C is a MUST have! The line is pricey, but I can see the results! I also use the Bobbi Brown vitamin D enriched primer more during the winter because it is so hydrating to my skin ~ and it smells AMAZING. A little goes a long way so it will last you awhile. The Origins charcoal mask is so good and the tanning drops aren't really skincare (lol), but in case you haven't heard of them, if you mix 2 drops in with any face lotion, just rub it on your face & neck, sleep on it and you will have a tan the next morning. Make sure you wash your hands right after to get it all off! The other items are very highly rated face masks or items that are on my wish list to get in the near future!
I decided to group all of these in ONE!
These are amazing gift-sets/value-sets ~ all have a product in the line that I use and LOVE. What a great idea for the a girlfriend or any beauty lover! These candles are one of my favorites - they are not too strong, but they last so long and they are known for their holiday scents! For their regular scents, I love the bamboo and Max loves the Lavender! We currently have the Pumpkin Chai we are burning, but cannot wait to get the Holiday one! The T3 curling iron/set is always a hit and it is one I am actually dying to get! I have been saving for it because it is quite pricey, but my amazon curling iron is just NOT doing it for me like I had hoped.
I hope this was all helpful! Let me know if you have any questions or recommendations for YOUR favorite products that you use! Make sure you are following me on Instagram and the LTK app for all the everyday updates and links!
