Earlier this month, Zach and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. When we got married, I used it as an excuse to buy all new Bobbi Brown makeup for my wedding day. Today I thought it would be fun to share those items that I still love 9 years later, along with a few other of my favorite makeup and skincare finds from Nordstrom.
Why I Love Buying Beauty Products at Nordstrom
As one of my favorite retailers, Nordstrom is a place where I can shop for the entire family in one swoop for apparel and accessories and also pick up luxury skincare and beauty items for myself. I think Nordstrom has an incredible selection of high-quality makeup, skincare, and hair care items and I absolutely love how their site is organized to help you find what you need and discover what is new and trending on the beauty scene.
I routinely purchase items from some of my favorite retailers at Nordstrom, including Oribe, Sigma, Clé de Peau Beauté, and Paula’s Choice. I also think that Nordstrom has the best selection from Bobbi Brown and Charlotte Tilbury.
Wedding Day Makeup Products that I Still Love 9 Years Later
Bobbi Brown Face Makeup
Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream // This rich, concentrated cream is one of the most hydrating eye creams around and a Bobbi Brown bestseller. It’s formulated with peptides, natural plant oils, and humectants to target fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, dryness, and puffiness. It’s also formulated with Extra Repair Complex—a combination of clary sage ferment and Argireline®—to target skin aging on two levels, by helping boost skin’s natural collagen production and fortifying the skin’s protective moisture barrier. Right now you can get it as a part of this limited-edition gift set.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit // If you struggle with dark under eyes, this best-selling compact might be your new favorite purchase! It includes a yellow-based Creamy Concealer to instantly camouflage under eye darkness and a pressed powder to set concealer for long-lasting wear. I wear shade, natural.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder // This lightweight bronzer is perfect for anyone who wants a muted, matte look for just a little bit of natural glow. It has the perfect balance of red and brown tones (the colors that exist in a true tan), and won’t leave you looking orange! It is a great bronzer year-round but especially during the winter months in my opinion. You can get it in this gift set for an amazing deal.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Highlighter Compact // The shimmer brick needs no introduction. In my opinion, it is one of Bobbi Brown’s most iconic makeup products. Handmade in Italy, this brush-on powder features superfine pigments that reflect radiance and light. The shade Pink Quartz will give you the softest, dewy glow!
Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup
Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow // I forgot how much I love Bobbi Brown’s eyeshadows until I recently repurchased Champagne Quartz. I use this highlighter on the inside corner of my eye and my brow bone. It is one of the best illuminating eye shadows I have used.
Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner // Any eyeliner that can stay put during a wedding is a winner! This unique gel-based pencil delivers richly pigmented color and precision lining with sweat- and humidity-resistant 12-hour wear. I have the shade, Black Ink, and love that it’s a soft texture that won’t pull at your lash line on application. You can also smudge it easily with your finger or brush for a softer look.
Bobbi Brown Lips
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss // Bobbi Brown makes the best glosses!! I love the color “Bare Sparkle” because it gives you a natural but illuminated shimmer. It is also vitamin-enriched and conditions lips while providing non-sticky but long-lasting color. Snag this gift set of glosses now while it’s on sale!
Bobbi Brown Lipstick // This bestselling lipstick started the Bobbi Brown makeup line. It’s a creamy, semi-matte lipstick that was the first formula to launch and when it did, it sold out instantly. The pigment is wonderful, it won’t dry out your lips and will give you long-lasting, full-coverage. “Nude” and “Sandwash Pink” are my favorite colors.
More Beauty Items from Nordstrom I Buy Again and Again
Face Makeup Favorites
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream // This is my favorite day cream to wear under makeup when I want a glowing complexion. It fights the aging process on all fronts, stimulating collagen production and cell energy while fighting free radicals to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // I’ve talked about this before, but this is my current favorite foundation. I have worn it repeatedly for almost a year and love the buildable, medium coverage and luminous finish. It is formulated Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten while improving texture and blurring imperfections. I find that it glides over my pores rather than sinks into them and cannot recommend it enough! I currently wear shade “5.5”.
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter Primer & Highlighter // If you want a little added glow to your look, this primer-highlighter complexion booster is a must! It can be used as a primer, foundation or enhancer to your foundation, and you can even apply it after your makeup for a dewy glow. Smoothing airbrush polymers roll over your complexion to deliver a poreless-looking, creamy finish, and a glossy oil in the formula reflects and adds light to your face where you need it.
Clé De Peau Beauté Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 // I purchased this concealer earlier this year after hearing about it on a podcast I listen to. I love it’s creamy finish and long-wear foundation but I really love that it has SPF to protect my under eyes. It blends so naturally, stays in place and doesn’t dry out.
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Complexion Brush // I’ve tried many other brushes but there is just something about this one that is perfect for setting your under eyes or lightly dusting powder around the contours of your face that I love.
Hourglass Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray // This weightless setting spray is my current favorite for setting makeup and blurring imperfections. I love that it’s water-resistant because I feel like it lasts longer than other setting sprays. You can also use throughout the day for an added boost of hydration.
Eye Makeup Favorites from Nordstrom
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow // Another eyeshadow I’m very impressed with. You know how you put on eyeshadow and it’s just, well, SO GOOD?!? That is this product for me. I love how smooth and creamy the finish is and the pigments are incredible! I wear color 308.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil // G.O.A.T. Needs no introduction. This brown pencil is amazing and looks so natural. The color taupe has been the best match for my brows and I’ve bought it repeatedly for years.
Nécessaire Eucalyptus Deodorant // Nécessaire is my current daily deodorant. I’m on my third tube and I really love it. It’s a multi-mineral and multi-acid treatment for odor control that is formulated with silica, zinc and kaolin clay to help keep you dry. It also has lactic and mandelic acids that help neutralize odor.
Nécessaire The Body Lotion // I LOVE this lotion. It’s a body lotion made with face-grade ingredients to moisturize and soften the skin. Niacinamide helps to restore and strengthen the skins surface for a healthy glow while vitamins A, B3, C and E, along with Omegas 6 and 9 hydrate, protect and improve the look of your skin.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray // This is my #1 favorite hair product. It acts as a dry shampoo, texturizing spray and volume booster in one. Patented polymers to absorb oil at the roots, leaving you with just-styled hair for days (and nights). I can go days without washing my hair thanks to this Oribe spray. It can be used on any hair type and on clean or dirty hair. I use it at my roots for insane volume and on my strands to give my waves a boost of thickness. It also protects color with a multi-layered UV protection system and has the best scent.
I hope you enjoyed this post and found a new product or two to love! You can see more of my favorite purchases from Nordstrom, here.
