I have been a makeup lover most of my life & started trying out pigments, lipsticks & glosses at just 16. Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoy the creative side of makeup & how it allows a woman to personalize her look. I usually book an appointment with a go-to makeup artist, but this time I decided to try Sephora. Sephora offers beauty classes, courses & makeup sessions for anyone, but the VIB Rouge members get free services & perks. This particular weekend, I had two events in one evening & wanted to add a wow factor so I decided to finally go for the Sephora Experience

This particular weekend, I had two social events in one evening & wanted to add a wow factor to my look, so I decided to finally go for the Sephora  VIB Rouge Experience. I signed up my local Sephora with one of the Beauty Experts & the process was pretty simple: pick a date, pick a time & confirm. Fast forward to a week later & it’s D- day.

I came fresh-faced and ready for the Sephora experience, and they did not disappoint. My Sephora Expert was Sheena, a sweet-and-informed Beauty Expert, who asked me a few beauty questions & glammed away. She accessed my skin-tone & even the moisture level of my skin with a small device.  Although  I’m a makeup enthusiast, I admit that skincare is an area I’m learning to appreciate as I get “older.” The importance of a good eye cream and moisturizer were two tips Sheena mentioned. We found the most amazing eye cream and moisturizer, that made my skin feel like silk.

Next up… the eyes! Yes, every makeup loving lady knows, you always complete your eyeshadow before you even apply your foundation to keep the color/glitter fallout from messing up your foundation application. I absolutely love a sparkly eye for special events, this time was no exception so Sheena introduced me to Stila’s new liquid eyeshadow! It’s phenomenal! She used the Stila liquid eyeshadow along with the Anastasia palette, that has become my new go-to. The colors were so pigmented, blendable, and it has the perfect mix of matte, shimmer, and satin shades.

 

The rest of the Beat is what I like to call ” The Works,”- lashes, liner, contour, highlight, blush lip color & the list goes on. Although I don’t contour every day, I LOVE a good contour, and Fenty Beauty Stick is easy to apply and even easier to blend.

The entire makeover was amazing, the finished product was beautiful, and my Sephora Expert was the sweetest. Next time, I’ll video the whole process or air it via my Instagram story. But for now, I’ve linked all the skincare and beauty products so you can easily browse and shop them below.

 

Happy browsing loves!
