I really love your tumblr! I feel like it does a great job representing every skin color and hair texture. It's nice to see.

^___^ Thank you! That is our priority. I would like to do a better job representing all genders and body types too. If anyone wants to submit looks or stuff they want to see represented we are happy to have them. 

hi! you guys rule! my friend recently gave me a 20% discount card for sephora and im hoping to do a $200 ish haul. i checked the sephora tag but didnt get too many results. do you have product suggestions? im currently in need of: eye makeup remover, chemical exfoliant, eye shadow palette, and a contouring kit but i honestly need to upgrade my whole face routine~~

Ya we don’t tag things by retailer usually. Here are my suggestions!

  • Makeup Remover: i honestly think the drugstore version by Target and Neutrogena is totally fine and great (and it’s what I use most of the time) but Lancome’s BI-FACIL is great. In terms of cleansing wipes — Simple (drugstore) is my preferred, but for true luxury and the most moisturizing wipe ever, Koh Gen Do’s Cleansing Spa Water Cloths are phenomenal. 
  • Chemical Exfoliant: Go for the AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel. 
  • Eye Shadow Palette: Really depends on what you want out of a palette! I’ve been using and loving the Urban Decay Vice3 more than any other palette I own lately. (It’s also Limited Edition, so.) I think the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette is great, too. Plus, it’s already on sale for $41 and it’s Limited Edition. I think Stila’s In the Moment Palette is a beautiful palette too, and something that works for every day use and more formal looks, too.
  • Contouring Kit: My #1 fave is the Anastasia one but it’s sold out forever. :( But I think the MUFE Sculpting Kit is great, too, and comes in a few different shades. I like that it’s not too orange. I had my friend switch from her favorite bronzer to this because she was using something very orangey and now her contour game instantly ascended. I still think NYX Taupe Blush is an amazing contour regardless of pricepoint, tho. ;) It’s probably my favorite. I’ve hit pan on it completely — and this has happened maybe twice, ever. 

Hope that helps!
