You know I cannot resist letting you know about a good sale. When my favorite beauty brands are on sale (especially the ones that rarely ever go on sale) I have to tell you about it! You can check out my instastories (@ashleypletch3) to see my basic, super quick makeup routine with items from the beauty sale also!
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer- All time, favorite concealer. I keep trying new ones that other beauty gurus suggest, but I find myself always coming back to this one. I always go two shades lighter than my foundation so I can use it as a highlighter under my eyes. I’ve never had any issues with it creasing throughout the day.
IT Cosemetics CC Cream– This is a more recent item I’ve been using lately. I love it because it’s an SPF 50+, plus it gives enough coverage that I can just wear this if I’m in a hurry or just running errands. It’s super moisturizing, so I honestly wouldn’t recommend this if you have oily skin. I also wear this as a base under my regular foundation when I do a full face.
Mario Badescu Rosewater Spritz – I do not travel without this spritz! I love it because it’s a great refresher after a long flight. It adds moisture and lots of vitamins for your skin to replenish and rehydrate. You can apply it before make up and throughout the day for a little skin pick me up!
Laura Mercier Bronzer- I love this bronzer because it’s compact. It’s so easy to travel with and easy to put on if you are in a hurry (unlike powder bronzer = mess!)
Better than Sex Mascara- This has been my go-to mascara for the last year. I still am a huge fan of Covergirl, but I will say this one gives just a little extra plump that my lashes so desperately need right now. (I’m missing my extensions terribly!!)
Mac Paint Pot- My favorite color is “Barestudy” and I like to use this as a base for my eyeshadow. Sometimes, if i’m in a big hurry, I just dab some on my eyelids and that’s it!
Too Faced Naturals- You guys have seen me use this palette numerous times! I love it! It’s the perfect mix of neutral shades. It has the right amount of pigment for a long day of wear and it goes on super smoothly to allow easy blending.
Mac Lipsticks– My favorite colors are Fleshpot // Blankety // Ruby Woo
NARS Blush– I love NARS blush and contour colors! I’ve been using them for years! They are nicely pigmented and I hardly have to reapply.
Viktor & Rolfe Flowerbomb– One of my favorite perfumes for Spring and Summer! It’s floral, but not too much floral. (I actually don’t like floral perfumes, but I love this one!)
Beauty Blender- I’m preaching here on this one! I cannot express how often I use my BB. Whenever they are on sale, I stock up. These are great for baking under your eyes as well as applying foundation. Pro Tip: Be sure to wet your BB before applying foundation. It makes alll the difference.
I LOOOOVE trying new products so what are some of yours from the beauty sale?!
P.S. There are tons of good brands on sale. I snagged a couple pieces myself!
