Sephora Beauty Haul


I follow brilliant beauty vloggers like Jaclyn Hill, Lauren Curtis and Carli Bybel because these ladies definitely inspire me to change up my makeup looks whenever I can. Thus, the other day I stopped at Sephora to venture outside of my comfort zone.

I came in looking for a classic red lipstick for fall/winter, and heard from a girlfriend that Marc Jacobs has stunning shades. She was right; I found the most perfect red for me (which is hard because of my fair complexion) called Showstopper. I also found some pretty blue Sephora Nano Eyeliner to bring out my hazel eyes. Lastly, I needed dry shampoo and the sales associate recommended Triple Sec by Drybar. It smells amazing and gives my hair a refreshed feeling on days when I don't have time to shampoo/condition/blow dry/style. Since it's my birthday month, I also scored Algenist Microlage Facial Oil, Makeup Forever lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. Lucky me!
