From My Heart: My Sephora Spring Shopping Event Recommendations

|Face + base.|
*Kosas Revealer Concealer (reviewed HERE)
Lightweight and nourishing with gorgeous medium coverage…you can even get away with wearing this as a foundation if you’re feeling creative.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Concealer (reviewed HERE)
A classic from a classic…this concealer is crease-free and full coverage for moments when your skin needs extra reinforcements.
*Kosas Tinted Face Oil (reviewed HERE)
Clean and green with remarkably buildable coverage, this wondrous liquid wears for hours and always leaves my skin better upon removal.
Surratt Surreal Skin Foundation Wand (reviewed HERE)
Still in my rotation after so many years, this formula has a built-in primer for smooth and flawless wear. True story: I wore it for 20+ hours on a trip to London and didn’t touch it up once…it’s that good.
Shiseido Waso (reviewed HERE)
I love this self-adjusting cream for minimal makeup days or as a primer. It makes skin look like porcelain and has magnificent SPF protection. What else does one need?
Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick (reviewed HERE)
My favorite stick foundation to date, I love that this can be applied sheerly and built to full coverage depending on one’s taste.
IT Cosmetics CC Cream (reviewed HERE)
Completely physical SPF 50 protection and a full coverage finish that doesn’t budge, this highly concentrated base makes skin look like natural perfection.

The Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Cloths have been my go-to wipes for years.
The formula is gentle yet effective, completely fragrance free and removes even waterproof eye makeup with ease. They’re so clean in terms of ingredients that I can even use them on Johannah Elle so a pack is always within reach!
It gets used daily to apply bronzer, blush and highlight powders alike…it is an investment that will last years (mine is 5+ years old and in perfect condition) and I wish never to be without it.
Dior Backstage Face and Body Glow
Every week, I seem to find a new use for the Dior Backstage Face and Body Glow (reviewed HERE); it truly is an illuminating staple. I love adding it atop foundation, mixing it without foundation and even using a touch along my collarbone and done the center of my legs for a natural lit-from-within glow. It is extremely utilitarian and highly recommended!

A daily brow must for me…try it and it will ruin you for all other formulas.
I love how inky black and long lasting this formula is…it’s ocular drama in a single pass.
GrandeBrow Serum (reviewed HERE)
I use this serum nightly on my brows (and so does my mom!); it truly fortifies, nourishes and contributes to volume and density.
*Viseart Chou Chou Palette (reviewed HERE)
The colors in this palette are joyous and bright yet completely wearable; in summation, they resonate with all the hopes I have for summertime.
*Viseart Paris Edit Palette (reviewed HERE)
A classic neutral palette for those who love radiant peachy nudes and smoky mattes alike. The dent I’ve made in this particular palette should adequately confirm my esteem!
Ahh…as soon as I caught a glimpse of this on social media, I knew I had to buy it (and at $25, it’s a veritable steal). The five shades create a stunning homage to the minimalist smoky eye of the 1960s and the sparkling green is unlike anything I currently have in my collection…get this, you won’t regret it.
Gucci Mascara (reviewed HERE)
Much more than gorgeously luxurious packaging, two coats of this jet black formula create full and elongated lashes that don’t smudge or flake. I am very pleased with this purchase and have been reaching for it almost daily as of late.

Patrick Ta Lipliner in She’s Humble (reviewed HERE)
A creamy nude pink to make lips look their largest…oh, and it’s retractable, so no sharpener needed!
Hourglass Lip Gloss in Child (reviewed HERE)
A lush and opaque shiny peachy nude, this, applied in the center of one’s lips offers gorgeous volume.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Paradiso (reviewed HERE)
I reach for this lipstick–a bright peachy coral with enough sheerness to be very wearable–multiple times a year and especially when the weather warms up. It’s like a vibrant breath of fresh air for the face!
My favorite shade in this particular formula, it’s the perfect blend of pink, nude, peach and beige…just lovely.
Pat McGrath Lady Stardust (reviewed HERE)
You can tell by how low the bullet is that this is my favorite Pat McGrath shade…it’s a creamy mauve pink with a dash of luminosity and easy for every day of the week.
LAWLESS Fawn (reviewed HERE)
I love this clean peachy beige nude…it’s the 1960s in a tube.
Pat McGrath Peep Show (reviewed HERE)
I recently rediscovered this pinky peach matte number in my collection and appreciate how velvety smooth and pastel (without being too white) it is.
Laura Mercier Lipliner in Rosewood (reviewed HERE)
A classic pinky nude with a touch more depth and rosiness than the aforementioned She’s Humble.
