Sephora Holy Grail Makeup FAVES

1. Backlight Primer

This Backlight Primer is my FAVORITE. The luminous Backlight BECCA primer gives a filtered and blurring effect on the skin making your makeup look flawless!! It has a pearlescent technology to provide a glow that radiates through your makeup while smoothing and perfecting. It can also be used alone (swipe on a second layer to the high points of your face for added dimension!) or under your favorite foundation.

I love that Becca’s products are vegan and house incredible ingredients like nourishing vitamin E and antioxidant licorice root extract which also improves uneven skin tone! And also, honestly, this stuff just looks the prettiest of any primer I’ve ever used under my foundation.

2. Best Foundation

This award-winning Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani has over 2000 perfect reviews!! Glowing reviews and glowing skin? That’s a win-win. It is on the pricier side, but if you’re determined to find the very best foundation out therethis is a must. It’s weightless and hydrating and makes your skin look totally flawless and natural! I use color number 7, and the match is impeccable.

If you tend to be more oily, try its sister product Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation! It gives the same look, but with a slightly matte finish to help combat oils throughout the day.

3. Makeup Brushes

The more I use the Artis Makeup Brushes, the more I love them. My number one fave right now is the concealer brush!! It comes in the set and seriously makes my skin look airbrushed. The brushes make applying and blending makeup SO FAST and I can’t believe how perfect my foundation looks afterwards.

The Oval 8 brush in the set is the BEST foundation brush I’ve ever used, with flawless coverage and foolproof usage. It picks up (but never absorbs) so much product and pigment, there’s no need for a second layer! You can use these brushes with cream, powder, or liquid formulas, and there’s a brush for every part of your face! You will LOVE them!

Even without the sale discount code, you can get this 10-piece brush set for only $259 ($483 value) – that’s 30% off! And the best news is, the discount code works ON TOP OF this sale, so you can get this brush set for an extra 10%, 15%, or 20% OFF the sale price depending on your membership status!

4. IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream

The CC+ Cream is my VERY favorite IT Cosmetics product. I’ve been using it for years! It’s won tons of awards (including Allure magazine Reader’s Choice Award) and is a cult favorite of makeup artists and consumers alike. Plus it was developed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, so it’s literally makeup and skincare all in one! If you’re in a hurry, you don’t need to stress about SPF, a primer, or moisturizer because this ALREADY HAS IT ALL!

When I was on a national TV show a while back, the professional makeup artist had literally every kind of foundation and brand imaginable at her fingertips and chose to use THIS IT Cosmetics CC Cream over every other option. It’s good enough for HD TV, so it’s good enough for me! Depending on the brush used, it can be full coverage or light coverage so it is SOO versatile! If you’re trying to figure out your shade, they even have a handy chart AND a live consultation to help you find your best foundation match.

5. Oribe Dry Shampoo and Texturizing Spray

I’ve mentioned that Oribe never goes on sale, right? Ever. So if you want to get their dry shampoo and texturizing spray at a discounted price, buy them today! Because if you’re a fan of not washing your hair (*raises hand) you will LOVE these two products. The dry shampoo smells amazing, works super well, and doesn’t create build up, while the texturizing spray absorbs oils and gives you amazing volume at the same time. They are literally magic!

6. Concealer

I had heard nothing but rave reviews about the Giorgio Armani Concealer, which is a fairly new product. I was SO excited to try it for myself since my love for the foundation runs deep.

And let me tell you. This concealer IS.INCREDIBLE. It feels so light, not sticky or tacky, but still gives amazing coverage. If you’re looking for a powerful but lightweight concealer, this is the one for you. I wear it in the color 6, which is brightening but still blends beautifully with the foundation. Truly I can describe it perfectly by its name: Luminous Silk!

7. Bronzer

This Fenty bronzer in I$LAND TING is the most gorgeous color and tone and not orangey AT ALL! It is the prettiest “I just got back from an amazing tropical vacation” bronze. For SURE add this bronzer to your cart during this Sephora Insider sale!

8. Urban Decay eyeliner

Urban Decay’s eyeliner pencils are probably my favorite eyeliner pencils OF ALL TIME. They glide on like butter but stay alllllll day. I gave one to my sis one year for her birthday when she asked me what my favorite eyeliner pencil was. It just works really super well, it lasts forever, and it looks really pretty.

9. Cream Eyeshadow

Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow in Champagne is the best base color to wear alone or to build upon with other shadows. It’s a cream to powder formula that goes on sheer with a sweep of the finger, or with more coverage if you use a brush! These cream shadows are so beautiful, stay all day, never crease, and come in six stunning hues.

10. Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

The Gimme Brow eyebrow gel is almost spooky with the way it magically fills in your brows and makes them appear fuller! It’s like you grow eyebrows (in the BEST way) as you apply it. Seriously so cool. I use the warm deep brown color and always end up with the most natural-looking, beautifully full, and defined brows! This is such a staple for me.

11. IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

I REALLY love this mascara. It is one of my TOP THREE mascaras in my makeup arsenal because it’s so versatile and works so dang well. It’s also one of the few mascaras that I feel comfortable enough putting on over my lash extensions. It’s super duper gentle, comes off easily, and builds length beautifully. Even though it’s gentle enough that it washes off super easily, it really gives super dramatic lengthening and thickening, making every little lash POP.

This mascara has earned over 800 perfect reviews, so you can see that I’m not the only one who LOVES it!

12. Dermaflash

This little device removes dead skin cells AND peach fuzz at.the.same.time. It’s all the things we need for our face, right in one device, swathed in the cutest lilac hue. Any and all skincare will penetrate WAY better after pores and hair are cleaned off our faces, and I love how user friendly this is!

It’s a similar idea to my tried and true PMD, with the hair removing power of my beloved Tinkle! Two birds, one stone. (Make sure you only use this once a week!)

13. GloPRO

This was my favorite device of 2020! I love that I can safely use it 3-5 times a week and that this kit comes with everything you need. This set is a $234 value and includes the Microneedling tool, 5 ml nightly retinol + peptide anti-aging serum, 2oz balanced pH balancing gel Cleanser, 5 ml ultimate hydrating vitamin C facial moisturizer, prep pads clarifying skin cleansing wipes with peptides and a refillable spritzer bottle (just fill with rubbing alcohol!) It is selling for only $199, which is 15% off the value!

Use this in conjunction with the Dermaflash for full benefits (just make sure you wait two days between treatments of each thing! Example: Sunday use the GloPRO, Tuesday use the Dermaflash, Thursday use the GloPRO, repeat!)

14. Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes

Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes are one of my truest makeup loves and for sure the greatest hit in my makeup lineup. I absolutely LOVE how pigmented all the shadows are. They make the prettiest colors and they last ALL DAY. And the palettes last FOREVER so they’re totally worth the investment!

15. Perfect Hair Day Living Proof Dry Shampoo

This Living Proof dry shampoo is best at cleansing, it has a great smell, and it’s easy to use for dry shampoo-beginners. It shows just a little bit if you have darker hair but you can totally massage/brush it out! This $47 value size is currently $39!

16. YSL lipstick shade #44

This YSL lipstick is one of the very prettiest lipsticks I own, and EVERY time I wear it in my stories, I get quizzed about what it is! My go-to shade is 44 which is a perfect pink-nude!

I’ve also tried shade 9 and love how neutral it is while still having color! This lipstick is sooo creamy and hydrating and has the best color payoff.

17. Buxom lip plumping gloss

White Russian is my very favorite color of Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream. I talked about it back in this post about winter makeup, and in this favorite makeup roundup too. It’s a winter staple, a spring staple, literally any season staple in my book! It’s a super pretty, universally flattering nude pink. I tried the shade Pink Lady last year when there was a deal and although I do like it, nothing compares to my very favorite White Russian shade!!

18. Hair Straightener

I’ve been using this hair straightener for a while and it is truly phenomenal. I have LOVED the rest of Dyson’s hair tools, and this one is no exception. It’s conveniently cordless and charges either on the wall or with a wireless charger (I get 3-4 uses out of it before charging again). It’s so fun to use!

This hair straightener relies less on heat, so it does way less damage than a traditional flat iron. Minimum heat for maximum smoothness!

I really think my hair has stayed way healthier by using this flat iron (even my hair stylist mentioned this too!) It works beautifully, both for straightening and for curling. The tool has flex plates that allow for easier curling, and I truly think the way to get the longest-lasting curls is by using a flat iron! The plates are soooo smooth and never catch or snag my hair.

19. Eyeshadow

This Natasha Denona eyeshadow palette is probably the biggest ticket item. It is spendy for sure, but the Sephora beauty specialist that sold me on it told me, “I’m a poor college student, but this is my favorite eyeshadow palette of all time. Ever. And it’s the only thing that I use now.” 48K loves and 420 near-perfect reviews don’t hurt either! The colors all blend together so beautifully, like without even trying!!! If you need a foolproof palette that looks incredible every single time you pull it out no matter what combo you choose, this is it.

20. St. Tropez Mousse

I am a HUGE fan of this stuff! It gives a warm-toned tan, very much an, “I just went on vacation and got some color” hue. You can sleep in it or wash it off after an hour or two to adjust the depth of the tan. I’ve been using it for years and it’s totally fool-proof.

  1. I’m would love to know if you use anything over the top of the Bye, bye Under Eye concealer to set it. I find that when I use it my mascara tends to rub off on it a little. When I use a different, not as wet concealer, I’d don’t have that problem. I want to keep using the Bye Bye Under Eye but am wondering if I need a powder on top? I have some fine lines under my eyes that I don’t want to have powder caking into. What do you recommend? I also wear contacts and don’t want traditional powder to get in my contacts. Any suggestions you can recommend would be so helpful. 😊 Also thank you so much for this post. There are several things I’m interested in trying. The dry conditioner sounds interesting. My hair doesn’t need to be washed daily but I do wash it daily because it feels too dry on the second day after using the hot rollers and hair spray. It feels L kind of stiff and dry. Would this dry conditioner fix that? Thank you so much! 😊
