Hi I recently received a $25 gift card from Sephora and I'm at a loss for what to get. I am not looking into foundation, concealer, eye shadows/palettes, mascaras as I recently bought these prior to receiving the card. I was wondering if you had any other recommendations. Thank you <3

I’d recommend either an every day blush, every day lip shade or a primer! This way you can get a product you can use daily and get your money’s worth! Any every day blush and lip product really depends on your skin tone and preferences so I can’t really recommend specific shades but i’ll list a few of my Sephora favorites :)

Fresh Tinted Sugar Lip Treatment $22. Personally I love shade shades Rose and Tulip! I looove these tinted balm/lip treatments as every day lip colors because they actually moisturize and you can get a sheer or more intense color depending on how much you apply.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes $35. I now own 3 and i’m obsessed with them! They never look over done it always just adds the perfect flushed look to the cheeks. They blend flawlessly and have a beautiful finish not too matte or too shimmery. 


Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes $26. I love these blushes when i’m going to be out all day. These are super long lasting, pigmented and the shade selection is awesome. 

Since I have dry skin what would you recommend for face products ? Such as foundation, bb cream etc...

These are all the most waterproof mascaras i’ve come across :)

Hi, I do my makeup regularly but I feel as though I'm horrible at prepping and maintaining my natural skin. I don't wanna ruin my face 😩 any tips or recommended products?

Hi there! :)

One big tip to help maintain your skin is to properly remove your makeup at night. Typically, one cleanse won’t remove all your makeup so when you go to sleep any excess makeup will clog your pores and cause you to break out. When removing your makeup at night you want to double cleanse, once to remove and break down your makeup and another time to cleanse the skin. You can do this by just washing your face twice, using a makeup remover wipe to remove the bulk of your makeup before washing, using a toner after you cleanse your face, or using a cleanse off oil first (cleanse off oils are great for those who cake up that makeup because it breaks down and dissolves everything!). 

As for prepping you want to use a long wearing primer to keep your makeup from melting and getting all yucky on your skin which can clog your pores. Try more light weight, smoothing primers that will lengthen the wear of your makeup and gently fill in and smooth over pores to prevent your makeup from clogging them. 

Try primers like

  • Benefit Porefessional $31
  • Dr Brant Pores No More Pore Refining Primer $45
  • Hourglass Mineral Viel Primer $52
  • NYX Angel Viel $16
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Primer $7
