True story: I'm a fashion editor who loves Sephora as much as she loves Zara. (If you want proof, I'm a Sephora Rouge member, which I'm slightly hesitant to admit.) My love of beauty products certainly isn't new, but it has gotten significantly more expensive as I've gotten older and my beauty requirements and routine have expanded (for context, I'm 34). That said, in some ways, I'm a bit low-maintenance. For example, my hair routine consists of blowdrying it until my arm gets tired, and wearing eyeliner is the bane of my existence.
I've always preferred a very natural look, so I gravitate toward products that help me to achieve that, and I rarely buy anything without reading a handful of both good and bad reviews. My Sephora order history thus far this year mostly consists of pretty makeup that's appropriate for spring and summer, with a few cult skin and hair products thrown in the mix. Oh, and I prefer the packaging to be as aesthetically appealing as it is effective (just being honest here).

Next up in my dewy-skin quest is this new glass skin illuminator. A little goes a long way with it, and I'm still navigating how to use it to its full potential, but for now, I'm tapping it on my cheekbones to highlight them.
This looks a lot brighter on my lips than it does in the tube, but I don't mind. It's a fun alternative when I want something different from my usual nude and pale pink shades, but don't want to deal with the maintenance of red. The coverage is more of that of a lipstick than a gloss.
I'm a little shocked that I have two lip glosses on this list, but here we are. I already loved the Nars Afterglow Lip Balm, so I couldn't resist this. It's not at all sticky, and like the Fenty gloss, it lasts for hours. I'm convinced that it would look good on anyone.
I'm a little bored with my current finishing powder, so I just purchased this highly rated one. Apparently, the pale yellow shade looks natural on a wide range of skin tones.
I bought this because it protects your eyelids from the sun, which is pretty revolutionary. Even better, it provides the prettiest wash of shimmer without creasing or flaking.
