Happy Thursday! I wouldn’t be a true blogger if I didn’t post about the Sephora Spring Sale, now would I?! But in all seriousness, I’m sure you’ve seen your favorite influencers, bloggers, and friends post about the big Sephora sale going on right now for Beauty Insiders and I wanted to share with you my top picks! I actually use quite a bit of drugstore makeup, so a lot of what you’ll see today is skincare, or makeup items that I just can’t stray away from. I’m not one to just “try out” high-end makeup unless I know I’ll love it.

Keep in mind that everything I’m sharing with you today is currently in my beauty drawers, or something I’ve used in the past. I didn’t want to throw products in your face that I haven’t used personally. If you have any questions, please reach out in the comments, or shoot me an email!

If you’re interested in my everyday makeup products, you can check that out here!

face bronzer
Lawless Bronzer
Color: Golden Hour
Everyone raves about the Hoola Bronzer from Benefit, but this bronzer by Lawless is my personal favorite. It's a nice shade for my fair skin, doesn't apply heavily, and the formula is really nice.

face buffing cream
Caudalie Buffing Cream
This is my face exfoliator that I keep in my shower, and use 2-3 times a week. Having sensitive skin, I'm not able to use harsh exfoliators, so this buffing cream is what I use to remove dead skin cells. Justin uses it too!

beauty blender
BeautyBlender Sponge
If this isn't in your makeup bag... add this to your cart immediately! I see so many people share dupes for this sponge, and having tried multiple dupes, nothing compares. I just can't stray away from the tried and true BeautyBlender! A must-have.

Laura Mercier Setting Powder
Color: Translucent
I never knew I needed this until I got a free travel-size awhile ago. It IS as great as everyone says. I use this to set my under-eye concealer, as well as my T-zone. This powder applies flawlessly, and doesn't change the color of your foundation/concealer.

eyeshadow palette
Urban Decay Basics Palette
A HUGE favorite of mine! I like how compact it is (making it great for travel), and the colors look nice on everyone's skin tone. A great basic palette to have!

face serum
Summer Friday's CC Me Serum
This serum sells out so fast, and for good reason! I use the serum nightly, or I'll use it in the morning if I'm not wearing makeup that day. It gives a nice glow, and makes my skin feel so healthy and bright.

Tocca Perfume
Scent: Giulietta
My go-to perfume for the spring/summer. It smells divine - like I just came from a flower garden. Pricey, but the product has lasted me forever!
Shop Now
Tarte Blush
Color: Exposed
I've heard great things about Tarte's blushes, and I'm so happy I purchased this one. It has a matte finish, and isn't too pigmented. This color in particular looks great on fair skin tones!

face mist
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
This mist from Caudalie is one of my favorite face mists/setting spray. It's described as a "universal mist" and I couldn't agree more! Perfect for setting makeup, using on bare skin, or using throughout the day when you just need a lil' somethin'!

face bronzer
Milk Makeup Bronzer Stick
Color: Baked
So happy I bought this product. If I'm not looking for a powder finish, I use this stick bronzer. It's incredibly easy to blend (some stick bronzers take ages to blend), and the shade is great for fair skin. It adds just enough bronze without looking like I have dirt on my face.

NARS Concealer
Color: Creme Brulee
I bought this a while ago because I never felt like my liquid concealers covered blemishes as well as I would've liked. This cream concealer is AMAZING at hiding anything you want hidden. An investment, but lasts ages and gets the job done!

tube of face mask
Summer Friday's Overtime Mask
Yet again, another fan favorite. I've talked about this mask before, but had to throw it at you guys again. THERE. IS. A. REASON. IT. IS. SOLD. OUT. ALL. OF. THE. TIME. An easy, 10 minute mask that leaves your skin glowing.

eye pencil
Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil
Color: Whiskey
I rarely wear eyeliner anymore, but when I do, I specifically use this eyeliner and in this shade. I occasionally like to apply eyeliner on the outer edges of my eyelids, and this glides on nicely (hence the name) and blends out nicely. Aka, allows room for error.
Shop Now
dry shampoo bottle
Living Proof Dry Shampoo
A hefty price tag for dry shampoo, but literally worth it. I just finished my bottle and switched to another brand that is fine, but nothing compares to the Living Proof dry shampoo. It's just one of those things you have to set on the counter and hand over your credit card for. Or in this case, add it to your cart and make yourself type your credit card information.
