Good morning friends! Hopefully you saw my blog post yesterday about my experience and how-to contouring at Sephora. If not, I’ll link it here! I did a quick contour for my makeup today and it turned out really well even without the careful instruction of the beauty experts. I always wonder if I can recreate the look on my own without all the same expensive makeup they use. Turns out, for the most part you can. But there are a few Sephora products that I find crucial to achieving the same look!
- Sephora brand Contour Duo– This is where the contour really takes shape! This handy tool is double-sided and easy to use. You simply blend it in with a makeup sponge and you’re good to go. It retails for $20 but is far cheaper than other high-end brands.
- Sephora brand 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation– Without a doubt my favorite foundation I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried a lot!) The texture is really smooth and doesn’t feel cake-y on my face. If you wear foundation 5 days a week, it will last you for about 4 months. This also retails for $20.
- Smashbox Brow-Tech Shaping Powder– Eyebrows are out of control and usually need some help. To pull together the rest of the look, you’ll need something to work with the brows! This tool is a little wand with lose powder on the end that will help you fill in your eyebrows and give them a more defined look. I use it frequently and love it! It might be more of a splurge item because it costs $25.
These products are definitely my splurge items as they aren’t as cheap as drugstore makeup. The real difference is how long it lasts on your face. I used to wear Cover Girl foundation and it worked but only for a few hours until it was sliding off my face and looking goopy. If you can afford to treat yourself, start out with the foundation and go from there!
