SEPHORA INSIDER BEAUTY SECRETS REVEALED!! ULTIMATE GLOWING SKIN ROUTINE + DUPES!!

February 20, 2017

 

 

 

This past Valentine's Day, I wandered into Sephora, gift cards I had been saving in hand.  Looking around at all the vibrant colors, I was instantly excited. Like a kid in a candy store, I couldn't decide which of my favorite brands to visit first.  Suddenly, the most blindingly gorgeous, glowing skin caught my eye. I noticed the Sephora associate who possessed it was helping a fellow makeup artist. I meandered over  and bid my time, waiting for the chance to ask her what foundation she had on...bc of course it had to be foundation making her skin glow, right?

After waiting awhile, finally impatience got the best of me and I had to interrupt. "Excuse me?" I asked her. " I was just wondering what foundation it is you're wearing?"

 

She looked at me and smiled. "I'm not wearing foundation," she replied. 

 

Uh, What?! I immediately felt disappointed. Then, to be honest, a little bit angry.

She must be lying, I thought. Ugh one of those girls who won't share their beauty secrets! I hate that!

 

Disappointed, I walked away, continuing my beauty search throughout the store. These gift cards were burning a hole in my pocket and there was no way I could leave without spending them, especially on Valentine's Day.

 

Walking around the store, the stubborn Aquarius in me just could not let it go though. There had to be some way, something she was using  to make her skin glow that way! I had to find out and wasn't letting anything stop me. I'm annoying like that, I know. But as a beauty addict, I needed to get my fix!

 

I approached her again. "Hi, I'm so sorry to bother you."

She turned and looked at me surprised.

 

"Do you have concealer or highlighter on? You're skin is just glowing!"

 

"Oh I just use lots of skincare products. ALOT. and Nars Concealor with iT Cosmetics CC Cream for daytime."

 

Wow! Ok great! Now we were getting somewhere! Thank You Jesus!

 

Gently I asked her if she would mind sharing some of her skincare routine since it obviously truly worked. She smiled and agreed. Since the store was empty, she explained she had the time to show me her full skincare favorites and  she wasn't kidding. It really was alot.

 

It turned out she was the Sephora educator and had come to the store merely to supervise. As we walked around the store together as she shared with me her skincare journey. To my surprise, she explained she had previously had painful acne prone skin, acne so bad she was left with horrible scarring. Since she works at Sephora now, she is able to try every product  and learn in depth about all of the products available in the industry. She came up with her routine through trial and error and it is extensive, but it works. She now has skin so  clear and glowing , she no longer even needs foundation.

 

I'm so happy I was able to find out from a Sephora beauty insider what her all time favorite Sephora products are for the ultimate skincare routine! Her  gorgeous skin was proof in the pudding bc, like I said,  she absolutely GLOWED!! I've been using her recommended products now for the past few days and my skin has not broken out and yes, I think it's looking plumper and glowing more too. This skincare Sephora haul was a great way to spend my gift cards and I'm so grateful to my friends who gave them to me.

 

These beauty products are definitely Sephora must haves of 2017 and in the video below, I demonstrate how to use them and in what order. Some of her steps were surprising, like putting oil drops on top of moisturizer, but honestly my skin is already looking & feeling  amazing and its only been a few days. I also suffered from acne my entire life and have been skeptical to try any new products. But I trust this beauty Insider and also know Sephora has a great return policy.  They have never made me uncomfortable when having to return an item. I appreciate that so much!
