Happy April, friends. What a great way not only to kick off the weekend and the first day of April but, the Sephora Spring Sale starts today. I don’t know about you but I wait for this sale event to stock up on my go to products, but I also take this opportunity to try new stuff. The sale doesn’t happen often, so when it comes around it’s a big deal. I am rounding up my favorites by category: from makeup, to skincare & hair products / tools.
How To Save During The Spring Sale
How much can you save during Sephora Spring Sale? There are three tiers- you can save 20%, 15% or 10% based on your insider status. If you don’t have Sephora insider status, it’s free (not a credit card- more of a rewards system), you can sign up here and still save 10%.
Sephora Spring Sale – Makeup Favorites
Here are some of my favorite makeup products from Sephora. I have several foundations, cc creams and mascaras that I love but here is what I’m currently using.
Summer is coming so to have the glow into the season, I love Drunk Elephant’s D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Bronzing Drops. I mix a few drops with my It Cosmetics CC cream for a beautiful glow. My color is medium tan. My go-to concealer is tarte’s Creaseless Concealer. For bronzer I use Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer in tan (medium in the winter). My current favorite highlighter is the Hour Glass Highlighting Palette and for lippie I use Too Faced Lip Injection in Glossy and Bossy. My go to setting spray is Urban Decay All Nighter.
For my eye makeup, I’ve been using the the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint (in Gold Copper). I have a highlight tutorial saved in my IG feed called “eye tint”. It is the most perfect color (a lot lighter than it looks online). Its liquid formula dries quickly without creasing, stays on all day. You don’t need a brush just apply with the applicator in the tube. For eyelashes I always start with Lancôme CILS primer. It’s vitamin enhanced and makes your lashes look longer and fuller. Follow with Lancôme Lash Idol or Lancôme Monsieur Big Volume For Brows – I only use two products either Anastasia Brow Whiz or the Brow Powder Duo in medium brown. If you use the Powder Duo, I recommend using this brush.
Sephora Spring Sale – Hair Products & Tools
I have been using the same hair products for as long as I have been covering the Sephora sale! First up the dry shampoo – it’s a definite must. My favorite for a while now is the IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo and it’s hands down my all time favorite. The Olaplex system from shampoo, conditioner, and treatment does not disappoint and I always stock up during the sale. For styling products I love the Bumble & Bumble brand. The thickening spray is hands down the best texturizing spray I ever used. I also love their Thickening Great Body Blow Creme.
I love my GHD curling iron. Though I don’t use it as often now. I like it more than T3 – its seems less damaging. I am a proud owner of Dyson Airwrap. While this tool is not for everyone, I am someone who is not that great with styling hair. And the Airwrap gives me that salon style blow out at home, without damaging my hair. Pros: it works fast and well, you can create multiple looks. The hairstyle is long lasting (it usually lasts me 3-4 days), it is quite easy to learn. Cons: the price (ugh I know), the size (not best if you have limited space) and last- you have to switch barrels (one for left side, one for right). None of these were a deal breaker for me, and I could not be happier with my purchase. This would make an amazing holiday present for the beauty lover (or yourself)!
Sephora Spring Sale – Skincare/Body care
I don’t buy a lot of body care from Sephora but I always buy these on sale and literally can’t get enough of this scent: Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Moisturizing shower gel. For acne and breakouts I use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.
Sephora Spring Sale – Self Tanners
I’ve been using the St.Tropez Classic Tanning Mousse for years. It has a pleasant fragrance and the mousse applies so well. For face I love the Clarins Express Gel and the Tan- Luxe Illuminating Drops in Med/Dark.
Sephora Spring Sale – Makeup Brushes
If you are looking to replace any of your older brushes, here are my favorites. The dual sided powder brush from Hourglass is a fan favorite and usually sells out day 1 or day 2 of the sale. I will be grabbing a new one. I love this Fenty brush for highlighter and use the beautyblender sponnge and beautyblender solid soap cleanser for cleaning.
