What You Need at Sephora VIB Sale 2017

I know I cannot be the only one who waits all year for the Sephora VIB sale! It’s the best time to stock up on essentials and also a good time to maybe splurge a little and #treatyoself? Here are some of the items I think are definitely worth picking up and I’ll share what’s in my cart at the end of of the post as well! If you want any other recommendations in a category I may have missed, feel free to ask in the comments below. Let’s get started!

Eyeshadow palettes are my favorite item to buy hands down. For me, they’re my most fun makeup item and what I play around with most. I own the 4th one and the quality is incredible. I’m planning on buying #3. It’ll be my biggest splurge in a while but I have a Sephora gift card I’ve been saving for now and I think this might be the one item I treat myself to!huda beauty desert dusk eyeshadow palette

Of course foundation is a good thing to stock up on and these three are foundation formulas I love.

It’s hard to narrow down my highlighter choices but here are 4 amazing options!

1. Pro Light Fusion Highlighter 2. Shimmering Skin Perfector (champagne pop is my favorite) 3. Fresh Glow Highlighter 4. Custom Enhancer Drops Set (the perfect way to try them!) And of course, Anastasia Beverly Hill highlighters are always incredible as well.


As for primers, I picked a range of moisturizing primers (1 and 2), pore minimizing (3),  and an overall great one for all skin types (4).

These are my favorite go-to bronzers and highlighters. #1 works well on medium or warmer toned complexions (which I have) in my opinion.

1. O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan 2. Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush 3. Ambient Lighting Blush 4. Hoola Matte Bronzer


Skincare is of course so important. Your makeup will only do so much if you’re not taking care of what’s underneath. I’ve done a full Drunk Elephant post here and these are some worthy contenders:

1. Volume 2 2. Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum 3. Volume 3 (all things moisturizer!)


And lastly, these Sephora sets are a fun way to try a variety of products. I love miniatures because I rarely finish a full size makeup product anyway! Here are some fun options and they make for great gift ideas too.
