Hey, fellow makeup-and-beauty-product-lovers! If you’re a Sephora Rouge or VIB member, it’s time to stock up on your favorites with Sephora’s Summer Beauty Event. The best thing about this event? You can use your discount as many times as you want. So, if you’re like me and forget about a number of products you
want need when placing your first order, you’ll be able to go back and get them with the discount. Again. And again. And again.
Rouge members can take 20% off their purchase and VIB members 15% off with code SUMMERSAVE, from now until the event ends on August 27. I usually save my “big” purchases for these times because I save so much. My tried and true favorites, from the best foundation from Giorgio Armani and concealer from NARS to the best skin exfoliator I’ve ever used from Philosophy (you HAVE to feel your skin after using this), to my favorite de-frizzing hair products from Living Proof, all get purchased during discount time. It’s also the perfect time to try new things for a fraction of what they usually cost. For example?
My New Favorite: Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk
I have yet to try something from Charlotte Tilbury that I don’t love. (Her Hollywood Flawless Filter is seriously amazing.) So this time around I tried her lipstick and lip liner, eyeshadow palettes (along with the brushes she recommends using with them) and blush all in a color that people have been raving about: Pillow Talk, a neutral nude pink that’s perfect for fall.

My Longtime Favorite: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (Pair It With These Two Products…)
As I mentioned earlier, Giorgio Armani’s Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation is one of my favorites. It’s lightweight and hydrating so it feels good on your skin and is buildable for more coverage without masking your skin. (It’s apparently the favorite of a certain Duchess with freckles for that exact reason.) It pairs perfectly with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, another award-winning favorite. This is the perfect concealer to hide dark spots, under-eye circles, and blemishes because it isn’t overly thick or drying and blends really easily. It doesn’t crease (you’re using too much if it does!) and stays put all day. This time around I also tried Marc Jacobs Dew Drops (a gel highlighter) and after applying it for the first time I thought, what took me so long?? You can mix it with your foundation or primer for an all-over glow or tap it directly onto your cheekbones for a gorgeous highlight. (Seriously, you have to check out the hilarious reviews—people LOVE this stuff.)
