I took advantage of Sephora’s VIB/Rouge sale online and in stores and I’d like to share my new finds, as well as tried and true favorites with you. If you are a Beauty Insider, there is still time to shop the Summer Bonus event through 8/27. Rouge members will receive 20% off and VIB Members will receive 15% off, both using the code :SUMMERSAVE.
Let’s begin with skincare. I have been using Dr. Perricone products for as long as I can remember and they’ve kept my skin fresh and plump. I use the eye lift serum, his brightening amine face lift and the hyaluronic intensive moisturizer daily. I’ve also discovered Algenist Collagen Serum and truly love the suppleness it brings to my skin. Collagen is such a key factor in keeping the elasticity in your skin for a youthful appearance. I use this at night and alternate it with the Dr.Perricone face lift in the morning. I also get my collagen ‘fix” by drinking Vital Proteins Collagen. The Strawberry Lemon is my favorite. Caudelie’ Beauty Elixir is another product I enjoy spritzing on my face as a refresher during the day . I never fly without it. My skin gets super dry during flights so a few quick sprays of this elixir helps to rehydrate and “awaken” me. I’m loving their new limited edition travel size bottle in pink.
My daily makeup routine stays pretty consistent. I love Giorgio Armani Foundation. I have been using it for years and it is the perfect coverage and texture. It’s still the best! I use Bobbie Brown bronzer over my foundation when I want a natural “sun kissed” look. This particular bronzer is great because it doesn’t have any sparkle to it. It’s very natural looking. I also use Nars blush (in orgasm) ,Kat Von D dagger tattoo eyeliner( for a great “cat eye”), Anastasia Brow Definer (in taupe) and I am trying Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara. I’ll let you know how that mascara compares to my daily fave, L’oreal Voluminous mascara. My everyday lipstick that I love to wear is Becca Ultimate Lipstick (in Petal). The texture is so creamy and light. Try it, I bet you will love it as much as I do! My splurge this trip was on the new line by famed makeup artist Patrick Ta. I bought the Major Glow lip shine in “She’s an influencer” (for obvious reasons! lol) and Major Glow body oil “A Vision” (in rose). I’m excited to keep that summer glow as we head into Fall with these new beauty finds! I hope this was helpful to keep you looking and feeling beautiful. I will be sharing my haircare tips in my next beauty blog, but my “go to” dry shampoo is LivingProof. It’s a life saver, or should I say “hair savior” on those days you need to be a little “extra”!
