My Favorite Must Have’s Fab Finds At Sephora

I went to Sephora today to see if I could find some new goodies. I found two great FAB FINDS that I wanted to share with you ladies.
Finally a makeup company took an interest with making a contour palette for us boogie down brown people. Smashbox Step By Step Contour Kit in Deep is an exclusive palette only at Sephora. It’s three blendable, buildable shades contour, bronze, and highlight the face for foolproof contouring, and the specially designed angled brush assists with even application. $45.00

I also found these Sephora Collection Contour Matte Gel Eyeliner Waterproof. The creamy texture, the intensely pigmented bright colors, and the long wearing smudge proof liner is everything I was looking for. I luv the way it glides on soft then dries in a matte finish, comes in 10 shades. $14.00

While at Sephora I had the most gorgeous face walk in and sat in my chair for makeup and I all kept thinking was she’s a real life modern day barbie.

Below are all the items that I used on her. All the items can be found at your Sephora location.

Being a Makeup Artist and a Beauty Expert I always love receiving phone calls about makeup. So when Janelle M. Hickman, a freelance beauty writer at StyleCaster reached out to me to chat about smokey eyes for the summer I was in heaven because sultry eyes are my favorite makeup look to create. I was also able to share what beauty items I like from Caudalie, First Aid Beauty, Bobbi Brown & Sephora Collection. Check out the article here on StyleCaster.

Makeup: Sephora High Gloss Lips On A Budget

Diamonds are not the only best friend of a girl. A high shine lip gloss with a glassy finish that will make you feel like a Victoria Secret model walking the runway is. I found 6 shades from the Sephora Collection that will give you a bombshell high pigmented slick shiny wet look. Some of the colors will even give you a shimmery glitter effect. The best part of these glamxurious lip glosses are that they are only $12.00
