When it comes to getting ready, primer is an essential step for me. It creates a smooth base for my makeup and helps it last longer throughout the day. Today, I’m using two different primers that I’ve been loving from Sephora.
The first primer I’m using is the XYZ brand primer. This primer is perfect for minimizing pores and creating a flawless canvas for foundation. It has a lightweight formula that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, making it ideal for everyday use.
The second primer I’m using is the ABC brand primer. This primer has a hydrating formula that adds a boost of moisture to my skin. It leaves my skin looking radiant and dewy, which is perfect for achieving a natural makeup look.
Now that my skin is prepped and primed, it’s time for foundation. I have been loving the DEF brand foundation from Sephora. It offers buildable coverage, allowing me to customize the level of coverage I want. It also has a long-lasting formula that stays in place all day without fading or creasing.
To cover any dark circles or blemishes, I always reach for the GHI brand concealer. This concealer has a creamy texture that blends seamlessly into the skin. It provides full coverage without looking cakey or heavy, giving me a bright and refreshed under-eye area.
For my eyeshadow, I’ve been using the JKL brand eyeshadow palette. This palette has a range of neutral shades that are perfect for creating everyday looks. The shadows are highly pigmented and blend effortlessly, making it easy to achieve a seamless and polished eye look.
To enhance my lashes, I’ve been using the MNO brand mascara. This mascara gives my lashes length, volume, and curl without clumping. The formula is long-wearing and doesn’t smudge or flake throughout the day, ensuring that my lashes look voluminous and defined.
To complete the look, I’m wearing the PQR brand lipstick in a beautiful fall shade. This lipstick adds a pop of color to the otherwise neutral look, giving it a warm and seasonal vibe. The formula is creamy and comfortable to wear, and it lasts for hours without drying out my lips.

Nars Pores and Shine Control Primer
The first product that I highly recommend during Sephora’s sales event is the Nars Pores and Shine Control primer. This is an amazing primer, especially if you have large pores like me and tend to get oily in the T Zone. It does a great job of controlling oil and minimizing the appearance of pores. I like to start by applying it on my T Zone and then blending it out to the rest of my face.
Hacha Silk Canvas Primer
Another primer that I swear by is the Hacha Silk Canvas primer. This one not only helps control shine but also works wonders on fine lines and imperfections. It comes in a cute packaging with a slight pink tint. I love using this on my nose and any areas with smile lines or imperfections. I apply it generously all over my face to ensure that my makeup stays put throughout the day.
Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation
Now let’s move on to the foundation, and boy, have I found my holy grail. The Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation is my current go-to foundation. The coverage is absolutely amazing, giving you that flawless look you desire. It offers full coverage, so if you want your face to look flawlessly beat, this is the foundation for you. With a wide range of shade options, you can find the perfect match for your skin tone. I personally use the shade 420 toffee and apply two pumps of it onto my face.
To ensure even coverage, I blot the foundation all over my face, starting from my cheeks and working my way to the other areas. I save my forehead for last, as it doesn’t require as much coverage as my cheeks. The Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation truly gives me that flawless finish that lasts all day long.
With these products in your makeup collection, you can achieve a flawless and long-lasting look that will withstand any occasion. Make sure to grab them during Sephora’s sales event to score some great deals.
When applying my foundation, I like to focus on patting it into my skin rather than swiping it. This helps to ensure that the foundation blends seamlessly and becomes like a second skin. I don’t want it to look like it’s just sitting on top of my skin. One foundation that I absolutely love for this is the Sephora foundation. It gives a flawless finish and lasts all day.
For my forehead, I only need half a pump of foundation. I apply it evenly and blend it in. The shade I am currently using is 420 toffee, which matches my skin perfectly. I find that using a smaller brush helps me reach the crevices and blend everything in seamlessly. I always make sure to bring the foundation down a little bit to keep it looking natural.
Next, I move on to concealer. My go-to concealer is the Hourglass concealer in the shade apricot vanish. I don’t need a lot of it, so I use the dot method to avoid overdoing it. I apply it under my eyes, on my forehead, and on my chin – these are the areas where I usually need some extra coverage. To blend everything in, I use the same brush that I used for my foundation. This helps to create a seamless look with no harsh lines.
Brightening the Under Eye Area
While I prefer a natural look overall, I do like to make my under eye area a bit brighter. To achieve this, I make sure to apply a slightly lighter shade of concealer under my eyes. This helps to brighten and highlight the area, giving me a more awake and refreshed look.
Overall, these are my current go-to products for a flawless makeup look. Sephora’s sales event is a great time to grab these items and stock up on your favorites. Happy shopping!
The Hourglass Veil Setting Powder
When it comes to setting my concealer, I always rely on The Hourglass Veil setting powder. Its translucent formula ensures that it doesn’t add any color and gives me a flawless finish. The best part is that it prevents any creasing throughout the day, so I don’t have to worry about looking like a mess. I simply apply it and press it into my skin, making sure to also set my forehead and chin. What impresses me about this product is that a little goes a long way, so I highly recommend getting the smaller travel size. You’ll have it for a long time, and if you just want to give it a try, the travel size will be more than enough for your needs.
Nars Laguna Bronzing Cream
For contouring, I prefer using cream products, and one of my current favorites is the Nars Laguna bronzing cream. It has a super creamy consistency that makes it effortless to apply. To contour my nose, I use an angled brush and apply a small amount. Cream products tend to be more pigmented, so I take it slow and lightly build up the color. Starting with too much product can easily lead to an unnatural look, so a little goes a long way with this bronzing cream.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
For that gorgeous glow, I rely on Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. This highlighter adds the perfect amount of shimmer and luminosity to my skin. I like to apply it on the high points of my face the cheekbones, brow bones, and the tip of my nose. It blends effortlessly and gives me a radiant and healthy-looking glow. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector comes in different shades, so you can choose the one that suits your skin tone best.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
To make sure my makeup stays in place all day, I finish off with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This spray is a game-changer. It keeps my makeup intact, even through long days or nights out. Just a few spritzes and my makeup is locked in, leaving me worry-free about touch-ups. The fine mist is lightweight and doesn’t leave any sticky residue. If you want your makeup to stay flawless, definitely give this setting spray a try.
Morphe Continuous Setting Mist
Another setting spray that I swear by is the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist. This spray not only sets my makeup but also leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. It has a fine mist that evenly distributes the product, ensuring that every inch of my face is covered. The Continuous Setting Mist also helps to blur any texture or pores, giving my skin a smooth and flawless appearance. It’s a must-have in my beauty routine.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
To complete my look, I reach for the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb. This lip gloss is my go-to for a perfect pout. It has a non-sticky formula that feels comfortable to wear, and the shade range is stunning. The Gloss Bomb adds a gorgeous shine to my lips and makes them look plump and juicy. Whether I’m going for a natural or glam look, this lip gloss never disappoints.

Blending for a Natural Look
When it comes to applying makeup, achieving a natural look is always my goal. To ensure a seamless finish, I use a brush to blend my products, layering them for the desired effect. Starting with my foundation, I apply a small amount and blend it in, making sure to avoid any harsh lines. For a flawless complexion, I repeat this process with a different brush, ensuring everything is blended to perfection.
Enhancing the Contours
To add dimension to my face, I focus on the hollows of my cheeks. Using a cream product, I apply a small amount and blend it out. This helps to create a more defined look, giving my face a subtle and natural contour. I also apply a bit of the cream product to my forehead and blend it in to maintain a cohesive look throughout.
Setting the Look with Powder
After using the cream products, I like to set everything in place with a powder. Lately, I have been reaching for the Guerlain Terracotta bronzer, which has been my go-to for a long time. Its warm tones add a beautiful touch of color to my complexion, giving it a sun-kissed glow. If I’m not using the Terracotta bronzer, I opt for the Fenty Beauty bronzer in the shade Coco Nauy. This powder bronzer is another favorite of mine and provides a similar stunning result. I lightly dust the bronzer on, ensuring it is evenly applied to my face, setting the cream products and completing the bronzed look.
Adding a Finishing Touch
To further enhance my look, I sometimes go over my nose lightly with the bronzer. This adds a subtle contour to this area, adding a touch of definition. And on those days when I have a bit of extra time, I take my setting powder and apply it to my face. This helps to set everything in place and gives my makeup a long-lasting finish.
During Sephora’s sales event, these are the products that I highly recommend adding to your makeup collection. They have become my current go-to products, and I am confident that they will become your favorites too. Achieving a natural, flawless look has never been easier with these amazing products. So make sure to grab them while you can and elevate your makeup game to the next level!
The Hourglass Veil
The Hourglass Veil is a product that I use to clean up my bronzer. It adds a finishing touch to my makeup routine and gives my skin a polished look.
Choosing Neutral Eyeshadows
As someone who prefers a natural and neutral look, I have accumulated quite a collection of eyeshadow palettes. One brand that I can recommend is alah IAH, although I’m unsure of the correct pronunciation. This brand offers a palette with a range of neutral shades, making it perfect for travel. It includes two shimmer shades and several matte shades.
To create a simple eye look, I start by using a transitional color in the crease. This helps to blend the colors together seamlessly. Next, I use a darker burgundy brown shade to deepen the crease, creating a V shape. I blend it out with another brush to ensure a smooth transition.
Packaging on the Lid
For the lid color, I like to mix both shimmer shades from the alah IAH palette. I use a flat shader brush to pack the color all over the lid area. This gives my eyes a subtle and shimmery finish, perfect for everyday wear.
Choosing the Right Mascara
When it comes to mascara, I have been using either the Nars Climax mascara or the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Both of these options give my lashes volume and length, completing my eye makeup look.

Applying Mascara and Fake Eyelashes
To start off my GRWM (Get Ready With Me) routine, I always reach for my trusty mascara. It’s the perfect way to add length and volume to my lashes. I like to apply a coat of mascara to both my top and bottom lashes, making sure to coat them evenly.
In addition to mascara, I also love using fake eyelashes to achieve a more dramatic look. The lashes that I’ll be using today are from Amazon. They come in a pack of eight, and the best part is that they only cost around 8 dollars! I know, it sounds crazy, but these lashes are amazing. They look so natural and add that extra oomph to my eyes. If you’re interested, I’ll include a link below so you can check them out for yourself.
Adding a Pop of Color with Cream and Liquid Blush
Next, it’s time to add some color to my cheeks. Lately, I’ve been loving cream and liquid blushes. They give a more natural and dewy look to the skin. One of my favorite blushes at the moment is from Rare Beauty in the shade “faith.” It’s a beautiful plum shade, perfect for this time of the year.
To apply the liquid blush, it’s important to start with a small amount. I simply dot three small dots on my cheeks and then lightly blend the color using my fingertips. This technique allows for a subtle and buildable color payoff. Trust me, a little goes a long way!
Layering with Dior Rosy Glow
For an extra flush of color, I like to layer the liquid blush with a powder blush. The one I’m currently using is the Dior Rosy Glow in the shade “Berry.” This blush has a subtle pink tone that complements the plum shade of the liquid blush perfectly. By layering the two, I’m able to achieve a more dimensional and long-lasting blush.
Finishing Touches: Lips and Setting Spray
Almost there! Now it’s time to focus on the lips and set everything in place. To begin, I reach for my Sephora brand brown lip liner in the shade “molasses.” This lip liner helps define my lips and creates a base for the lip color.
The first lip color I’ll be applying is “sanctuary” by Cat Von D. It’s a beautiful dark plum shade that adds a touch of vampiness to the look. To add some dimension, I dab a bit of “pure Hollywood” by Anastasia Beverly Hills in the center of my lips. This creates a subtle gradient effect.
Lastly, I finish off my makeup look by spritzing on a setting spray. This step not only sets my makeup in place, but it also gives my skin a refreshed and dewy appearance. It’s the perfect finishing touch to ensure that my makeup lasts all day.
And there you have it! My current go-to products for a stunning makeup look. I hope you found this article helpful and can discover some new favorites for yourself during Sephora’s sales event. Remember, makeup is all about expressing yourself and enhancing your natural beauty. So go ahead and have fun experimenting with different products and looks!
Setting Spray: Fresh vs. Dior
So the only thing we need to do is apply a setting spray, so I have two that I’ve been using. I’ve been using this one by Fresh and then I have another one from Dior. This is the Forever Perfect Fix.
The Power of Setting Spray
I just have to spray a setting spray after I apply my makeup just so it kind of takes away that overdone feeling and it just makes it look more natural. It also keeps the makeup in place throughout the day. That’s why I’m going to use this one.
The Fresh Setting Spray
I spray a generous amount of the Fresh setting spray. It gives my skin a slightly dewy finish, which I personally love. After spraying it, I take my hands and fan it a little bit, allowing it to settle. It truly enhances the overall look and feel.
