It never takes much arm-twisting to get me to spend money at Sephora, but the gloves reaaaaaallllyy come off when there’s a sale. Thankfully, the Sephora Beauty Insider Event for Spring is on, and if you haven’t gotten your wishlist together yet, I’m here to help.
Depending on your Beauty Insider level, you might already be qualified to shop the event. Dates and codes are listed above; be sure to also check your card, email and/or the Sephora website for exclusions and limitations.
I always find it so much easier when I have a list ready to go, as opposed to just pulling up my “hearts” on the Sephora website. That said, following are my recommendations for the Spring Beauty Insider Event:
Huda The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette. This is one of the most beautiful palettes I own; a mix of buttery-soft neutral shades, along with glitters to make any eye look pop. You can’t go wrong with this one.
A warm-toned palette is a must-have. My pick is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette. It was the top selling makeup launch of 2018, according to WWD. Do you own it? Well worth having in your collection!
If you’re more into color + whimsy, I love the Moschino + SEPHORA Laptop Palette. Thirty shades, multiple finishes, summer-ready colors.
Foundation is always a good thing to replenish. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is a longtime holy grail (I’m shade 5). I also love the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Kit, where you can pick your foundation, plus get 3 skincare favorites!
There are so many good concealers, but NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is consistently the one I reach for. If you haven’t tried it, this is a great opportunity.
Lips: To be honest, there are just too many good lippies to list, but I would recommend Fenty Stunna Lip Paint (in Unlocked for Summer!), Pat McGrath LuxeTrance in Realness for everyday, and Urban Decay Vice Lipstick because of the variety of shades, finishes and excellent quality. Plus, I never pass up the chance to pick up a YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balm. So luxe!
A new blush for spring is always fun; on my shopping list is the Jouer Cosmetics Rose Gold Blush Bouquet Dual Palette. I have the Coquette Duo, and the formula is exceptional.
If you’re looking to bring out the glow, the REN Radiance range (review) is a great start. I love the Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream, the Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic and AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum.
Shimmer is always on the menu for summer. I’m loving the Patrick Ta Major Glow Body Oil (review), and the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil SPF 25. Not only does it smell amazing, it gives a beautiful shimmer effect to skin.
I wear sunscreen every day, and the Supergoop! Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40+++ is my go-to. It has a light texture, doesn’t leave a white cast or feel greasy and in addition to protecting against UV rays, it shields skin from blue light and pollution. I love this travel-sized kit; grab it before it’s gone!
If you’re looking for a moisturizer without sunscreen, the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resiliance Hydra Burst Gel Lotion is brand new. Super light, ultra-hydrating, calming and oil-free with a fresh scent, this gel-lotion is perfect for summer. I love the clean beauty formula, too.
I have the new AERIN Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum and it’s gorgeous. Light and sheer, this is a floral fragrance with crisp notes that make you feel as if you’re on the Mediterranean. This is my fragrance pick for the summer.
Beautyblender is a makeup tool I’ve used and recommended for years; great quality and durability. So it makes sense to get this Pretty in Pink Sponge Set while you can get a discount. Love the fun new colors!
The Dyson Blown-A-Ouai Noir Set definitely qualifies as a splurge. Use this event as an opportunity to save not only time and money, but your hair!
If you’re dealing with blemishes and/or enlarged pores, the Peace Out Emergency Pack is great to have on hand. Really amazing to see how much gunk is removed!
Finally, don’t forget your makeup setting spray; my makeup isn’t finished until I spritz on Urban Decay All Nighter.
