Hi babes! Happy Friday! Needing some beauty gift ideas? Well, you’re in luck! Today is the start to the big Sephora Sale for Rouge members and lasts until November 11th. Everything is 20% off with code HOLIDAYSAVE– which makes it such a great time to stock up on your beauty favorites and save. All VIB members can shop the sale November 7-November 11 and will receive access to shop holiday event products at 15% off with code HOLIDAYSAVE. I thought it would be the perfect time to share my gift guide for the Beauty Queen and a few of my favorite beauty items.
eyeshadow palette // curling iron // brightening primer // setting spray // nude beauty blender // hydrating self tan water // self tan eraser // hourglass bronzer // silk pillow case // lip stick (in penelope pink) // perfume set // concealer // vanity organizer // facial roller
brightening primer // I put this on before I start my makeup. It is my first step and I feel like it makes my makeup go on smoother.
setting spray // I finish my makeup process with this setting spray. I feel like it helps lock everything into place and preserves the makeup all day long but is super hydrating.
hydrating self tan water // this is a new product that I have been trying and I love it. It is from the same company as my tan drops that I will take about a little later. It is a lighter must that I spray on my face, neck and hands because I don’t but the lotion on my hands.
self tan eraser // every girl needs this in their cabinet! It helps exfoliate your skin and makes it look and feel brighter and more hydrated.
silk pillow case // this would make a great gift for any girl. It is worth the investment! This silk pillow case allows skin and hair to glide across the pillow – protecting and hydrating skin and reducing split ends.
perfume set // I love this set as a gift! All 3 sets smell so good and are the best items to toss into your purse or overnight bags.
The curling iron I use everyday is included in the sale!
I love this bronzer / highlighter duo. It creates killer cheekbones and candlelit skin. I use color: fair/medium
hydrating self tan water // I use this for my face neck and chest since it tends to be lighter than the rest of my body. I like this product for the fact of how easy it is to spray your face with this fine mist after moisturizing at night and wake up with a glow.
This is a lovely set and a great way to sample the collection. The bottles are a decent size (like a standard rollerball, but with a spray dispenser) and I find them to be fairly concentrated. In my opinion, they’re all truly beautiful scents, but the standouts are Sage Spell and Dancing Roses. The packaging and presentation are beautiful as well—would make a lovely (if expensive) gift for a fragrance lover!
I use this brightening primer before makeup and this spray AFTER my makeup is done.
Here’s how: For your face you mix 1 to 4 drops with your usual moisturizer and apply to your face. I do mine at night because I like to wake up with my tan. But you can also do it in the morning, it just takes 2 to 4 hours to develop. Wash your hands after you apply! This is super important. For your body mix 2-6 drops per body party with your favorite body moisturizer. Apply in large circular motions from head to toe, lightly covering your hands and feet.
2. With the tan drops you are able to customize and build the color you desire. I recommend starting with 2 drops to see how the tan develops on your body.
This is a great time to stock up on hair care products as well. I use so many of the Living Proof Products. I did a post here on my favorite haircare products. The one pictured above is a mini size – great for traveling. I also love the dry shampoo, hair spray and this perfecting spray. Also they have a great shampoo and conditioners.
A great holiday eye shadow palette!
